This is the second time we stayed here. The reason we came here again is because it is close to the airport and the hotel itself is very nice. We came here this time and got put up down the street in their apartments. If they are full and want you to stay at the apartments take my advice and... More

We were referred to this hotel through our guidebook and it turned out to be a gem. The hotel has been in the same family for many years and has been recently renovated. The building itself was built in 1915, hence the name. The rooms are very comfortable and quiet. There are 2 large common areas for relaxing, reading, and... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this very lovely quiet hotel. The interior was completely redone and it had a wonderful vibe to it. The rooms were clean and spacious, there was even a little covered balcony which was great for reading. Definitely recommend it!

We spent a week at the Hotel 1915 and found it very enjoyable. The staff is very sweet and took good care of us. Our room was on the street side and was very noisy at night with cars honking, etc., but nothing that couldn't be taken care of with a good pair of earplugs. We were with a group,... More

We were looking for a place to stay for a night near the airport and this was perfect. I was somewhat nervous driving through the city and the first place we looked at didn't help my nerves. However, once we checked out Hotel 1915, I was relieved. The staff was friendly (Darwin), the hotel was charming and cozy with nice... More

1915 is a gem in the city. DO NOT STAY in San Jose. Go to Alajuela and be 5 minutes from the airport. This hotel is clean and beautiful with a wonderful and helpful staff. The breakfast is also great and hotel is warm and cozy. It has the feeling of staying in someone's lovely home. Darwin at the front... More

I've stayed previously at Hotel 1915 for two continuous weeks while working with a church group. On a recent return trip, Hotel 1915 was used one night as a convenient location on arrival (before sight seeing at Monte Verde and La Fortuna) and two nights before departure. The hotel is still very convenient to the Airport -- about one mile... More

As other reviewers, we chose 1915 based on Lonely Planet guide, on our last night in Costa Rica, due to Alajuela's proximity to the airport. We made a reservation the morning of our arrival day, over the phone, and just left our first name with Adela, without having to give a credit card number. We notified that we would arrive... More

Based on Lonely Planet's recommendation, I made a reservation here. My husband and I were put in a house across the street. The unfriendly woman who let me in showed me our room, which had three beds (!), and assured me no one would be in the other bedroom. Good thing since there's only one bathroom. Since it is a...

I stayed here the first and last nights of my Costa Rican vacation. The hotel is clean, the breakfast is great (you have your choice of Costa Rican breakfast or a more American style breakfast w/eggs) and the proximity to the airport is convenient. They have a parking lot across the street for your car if you have one. The... More
