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.

From the outside, this small hotel looks like any other business building in Alajuela...it's pretty much a wall with a door at one end. Go inside and the view changes: It is an historic, charming old place, filled with lovely carved antique furniture. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was delicious. The location is just a short... More

This hotel is beautiful! The neighborhood is interesting, but right across the street there is a police station (and a delicious local food joint). To enter the hotel you must ring a door bell and the desk clerk will open the door. We had a room with a very nice balcony and roomy bathroom. I would recommend this hotel to... More

Very nice boutique hotel, minutes from the international airport. Excellent choice for those who wish to avoid bustling San Jose (Alajuela is a lovely small town). The common areas, sitting room and dining room are gorgeous. Our bedroom was fairly simple and in comparison slightly disappointing. The included breakfast was excellent. An excellent location for a last night in Costa... More
