Five minutes from the airport without traffic; 20 minutes with traffic, 1915 hotel is centrally located in Alajuela, the town in which the San Jose airport is actually located. It has a great breakfast, comfortable lounges, and adequate rooms. It's very easy to walk to the square, church, museum, shopping and eating. But with so much more to explore in... More

My husband booked this hotel for our last night stay in Costa Rica. We needed to head out to the airport by 4:00 am the next morning. I have to honestly say, I was so shocked when I first arrived. I even questioned my husband several times, if we arrived to the right place. From a quick glance at the... More

Stayed there for 2 nights and liked it. Conveniently located in downtown Alajuela, bus terminals and several inexpensive restaurants within walking distance, less than 10 minutes by taxi (3,000 colones) to Juan Santamaria airport. Not the cheapest option in Alajuela, but well worth the money - clean spacious rooms, comfortable beds, quality plumbing and great cook-to-order breakfast. One warning though... More

Stayed 2 different nights at this hotel before flying out in the morning. Both stays were just great. A $6.00 cab fare to the airport after a night with a clean room, good bed, hot shower and breakfast to boot unless you're leaving very early. Wonderful hospitality letting us use their telephone, allowing us to store our luggage after checkout.... More

I've stayed here two different times with a mission team. The first was in for one night in 2010. The second was for a week in 2011. Both were in July. The hotel is wonderful. The rooms are very comfortable, bathrooms are clean and have hot showers. The indoor common areas are tucked in different areas of the hotel, so... More

Really enjoyed staying at 1915 Hotel. The old Spanish decor was lovely. Staff were incredibly helpful -- let us store our suitcases overnight, let me use their phone to make a call. We had a suite with a balcony overlooking the roofs down to the square and distant San Jose -- beautiful view. There was off street parking for our... More

We had a lovely night's stay here, relaxing in the comfortable lounges filled with sofas, elegant side tables, and lush, green plantings inside the lounge. Our room was comfortable too, (though not spacious by American standards, ....the "queen" bed was what I would call a double). The elegant bed had the most comfortable mattress of the 3 hotels we stayed... More

We stayed here on our last night in Costa Rica and were delightfully surprised by the old world classic beauty of the hotel. Our room and bathroom was clean, and very comfortable. There was even a little fridge for our use. We had to leave too early for a proper breakfast but still we were given fruit, fruit juice (... More

Nice, clean hotel with a couple of lounge areas. Included is a lovely breakfast. Within walking distance to banks, stores, restaurants, pharmecies and a really nice park to people watch. Felt safe here. We would stay here again.

This is a very comfortable and inexpensive hotel a block from the central cathedral. Breakfast is included, and it is very delicious. This hotel was the home of the owner, her parents, and her grandparents. I would highly recommend this hotel if you are in Alejuela. The doors are locked at all times, so it is very safe.
