    Nice Neighbourhood - Really amazing service!

    This place is located in a quiet neighbourhood. I made the mistake of booking on the wrong day and showed up at 2 AM from my flight. They were extremely accommodating and changed my reservations. Not only that but they accommodated an additional friend with and gave them a room on the spot. I was extremely pleased with their customer service and hospitality. Breakfast was great and room was nice. Perfect cozy spot for friends or couples. I would definitely go again here just for their service!

    Excellent service

    The woman at the front desk was incredibly nice, even after I missed the breakfast period she offered to make me anything I wanted free of charge and gave great advice for things to see around town. There were renovations going on so not all of the amenities were available, but the staff did everything they could to make up for it. The location was perfect for sight seeing. The room was small, but clean and comfortable.

    The property is nice inside, newly painted. Very clean. Breakfast was awesome. But what really setcthis place apart were Mario who checked my son and I in and Juan who personally gave us our wake up call at 4am, made us breakfast and then stepped outside to wait for our cab that he called. It felt like we were guests in their home, especially when Juan was cooking for us.

    Didn't need to go to San Jose

    Great place to stay after landing at at the San Jose airport. Caught the bus to Jaco the next morning. Elizabeth was a great help getting us started on our first Costa Rican trip.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Remodeling is in progress and the room had new paint, but it was lacking some very basic, inexpensive things that guests expect: a luggage rack (or at least a chair) to get luggage off the floor; a rack with hangers (or at least a hook) to hang clothes; reading lights for the beds (or at least a lamp on the nightstand); a cup or glass to drink out of in the bathroom. TV was not working properly. The locks are old and the attendant must let guests in and out the front door. Not recommended for anyone with a car; there is no hotel parking, and the parking situation in downtown Alajuela is very bad. However, taxi to airport is inexpensive.

    Mario was extremely helpful and kind. We left something behind, called and asked if we could pick it up in a month, and he held it for us!
