When I arrived at the airport, I was greeted by the shuttle driver from the hotel, holding a sign with my name. Couldn't be easier, and well appreciated, since you get bombarded upon arrival by taxi drivers, etc. The hotel is well situated- an easy walk to buses, a mall, and the center of town. The rooms are clean, but... More

Stayed here the last night of our trip, before heading back. Melrost is quite a ride from the airport, but they do offer a free shuttle service to the airport (even at six in the morning). Staff very friendly and provided us with a to go breakfast. Rooms were OK, cleanliness average.

We are always looking for new places close to the airport in San Jose and this one is very convenient. The owners and staff are very helpful and the breakfast was very nice. Unfortunately, one of our beds was extremely uncomfortable and the slats supporting it fell out.

My friends and I stayed here the night before our early morning flight. The hotel is close to the mall where we ate dinner and it's very close to the airport. There is a free shuttle to the airport, and they were exactly on time and got us there quickly. They even gave us breakfast to go. The staff of... More

Very close to the airport. Perfect place to stay if you have a late flight in, or an early flight out. Free shuttle to and from the airport. The breakfast served at the room in the morning was very delicious. The staff helped us arrange for transportation to Jaco Beach the day after our arrival.

We had booked one night at this B&B because our early morning flight from SJO. Simple, clean room, well organised staff, efficient and friendly welcome. The big plus is of course the free shuttle to and from the airport (less than 5 minutes), at every desired moment. In the nearby shopping Mall you can enjoy quick meals. Price quality of... More

Melrost Bed and Breakfast is located near the airport and would make a good place to stay for your first or last night in the country. We had an early morning flight and they took us to the airport in the free shuttle. They also picked us up at the car rental office after we returned our car. The rooms... More

Staff are friendly and the airport pickup went almost smoothly (we "only" had to wait for 30 minutes). The hotel is located in a residential area with a shopping mall nearby which however is rather a sad place and definitely not suitable to go to for a dinner (unless you like to dine with a neon-lit railway station atmosphere). The... More

- delicious breakfast was delivered to my door - staff were MORE than accomodating - beds were comfortable - close proximatey to the airport (but tucked away in quiet neighbourhood) - very reasonable and clean! I plan to stay here again on my next trip to Costa Rica. Thanks so much Melrost B&B!
