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.

Good basic room, hot hot shower, good breakfast that conveniently starts at 6 am for early flights. Nice boutique interiors with lots of common areas - is a... More

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

These folks couldn't have been nicer! Our family of 5 stayed here for one night in February 2012. We had been up to the Arenal area, and had an early morning flight the next morning to The Osa Peninsula. It was great to see a bit of a metropolitan area, although we drove in after dark and couldn't walk around... More

My husband and I stayed in 1915 Hotel in May 2012. We only stayed the one night, after flying in to San José airport that evening. The hotel was spotless clean, was very quiet and far more beautiful than the photos on this site would lead you to believe - they do it little justice. The staff didn't have much... More
