    They are under renovation so starting at 8 am there was a lot of noise and when some one rang the bell at the front door I heard it no matter the time I could also here the phone ring at the front desk. Worse of all though there was no mention on there web site that no forms of alcohol are allowed in the rooms, are you kidding me. It is true.

    No beer in room to much noise and poor location.

  • Group of friends

    The staff is very kind. THe hotel is NEW, so everything clean and comfortable.


  • Family with children

    The rooms were comfortable and the bathrooms were modern and clean.

    The location is not near shops or tourist attractions.

  • Couple

    The staff is very friendly and helpful. The hotel is located very close to the airport which is very convenient after a long flight. It's also perfect to start a trip up north to poas NP as you don't have to drive trough san jose. You just leave alajuela and you're on the road to the volcano. The rooms are not luxurious but got every thing you need even wireless (which is quite luxurios in my opinion).

  • Single

    Staff was nice

    I think the room was booked the night before for 1 night so they thought it's enough to just do the bed without changing the blankets. Impossible!!! The hotel is a mess for that price... Never come again.

  • Group of friends

    Staff, proximity to the airport and the complete breakfast.

  • Group of friends

    Andrew was very helpful. The room was nice. There was secure parking.

    It was a little difficult to find - even with a gps - it might be best to put the cross roads on the website or a little map like they have on the brochure. The area around the hotel was a little dark at night, not many places to go for dinner. But it was super close to the rental car return location and airport.

  • Family with children

    Close to the airport and very friend staff

    It's not a super nice place to say (definitely not bad) but it's fine to stay at if you just need to be near the airport.

  • Group of friends

    Staff was very friendly, eager to help and spoke adaquate english. a reviewer over the summer of 2012 mentioned a renovation. my stay was in feb 2013. it appeared the hotel was done with updating the rooms, nothing fancy, but clean and functional. i did notice that they were still working on the exterior of the hotel. mostly painting, it looked like. no issue with any noise. if you are looking a budget hotel for a night or two near san jose or airport, this is your choice. it worked out great for us. about half an hour by car to downtown san jose. maybe 15 minutes to the airport. believe it or not, we had to deal with traffic jams during the weekdays. so keep that in mind. you can get to Poas volcano from here, and get there in time before the cloud settles in. no need to get an expensive hotel near the volcano. there are eateries and markets within a few blocks from the hotel. the hotel is located in the mid-block across from a small park, at the eastern most edge of Alajuela. if you have a rental car, the secure parking lot is at the corner of the same block, next to the pizza hut. parking is included. the lot is locked up at night. we had no issues with our rental car.

  • Group of friends

    The person that helped us was incredibly helpful. He was friendly. The room was also very clean and comfortable.

  • Group of friends

    The staff was amazing! They went above and beyond our expectations. In fact, when they felt as though we hadn't gotten our question answered, they would call us back later with more details. For us, the staff made up for the simplicity of the facility.

    The room has no windows to the outside (which in one way keeps out the street noise). The room itself is good sized, but the concrete floor is a little cold on the feet. The decor is cheaply done so the atmosphere is not very appealing.

  • Older travelers

    Close to airport. Perfect after a late flight. Nothing fancy but there was air conditioning and a comfortable bed. Breakfast was good. It was fun to walk through the downtown area the next morning.

    The shuttle didn't come but I think there was a misunderstanding. It only cost $8 for two of us to take a cab. Make sure you get the price from the driver before you get in.

  • Single

    I highly appreciated the friendliness and helpfulness of staff members.

    In my opinion and admitting that I might be tall compared to a Costa Rican, I say that the rooms are too small for more than one person.

  • Couple

    Nice clean rooms, good beds, nice showers, A/C, flatscreen tv, fridge. Very good value for money. Good location for continuing your travel in Costa Rica, or close to the airport, escaping San Jose.

    At night Alajuela is not that great, but that is not the Hotels fault.

  • Family with children

    Close to airport and gallo pinto breakfast was excellent! Free shuttle service

    Rooms on the small side.
