My girlfriend and I were landing in San Jose at about 9pm and had a 6am flight the next morning from the same airport so didn't want to go the 30-40 minutes into central San Jose. We found this place and were slightly gutted we couldn't have spent a bit longer there. Firstly it was no more than 10 minutes... More

We, a family of four, stayed here for one night. The hotel is really good and it has free airport transportation. We came after midnight with a taxi and the price was taken of from the room price. The staff is really friendly and helpful. We highly recommend this place!

Stayed at Melrost after arriving in San Jose on our way the following day to Dominical and again on our return. Staff is friendly and helpful. Room was simple but clean and adequate for our needs. Beautiful balcony and tables to sit and relax. Breakfast was good. Transportation to/from airport was included - a nice touch.

I recently stayed at the Melrost B&B. The furnishings are simple, but very adequate. The Melrost is only 10 minutes from the airport, and they will pick you up. What I really liked was the location, very walkable to the mall, restaurants, and very safe.. I was by myself. What I loved are the people that run the B&B, so... More

We stayed at Melrost for 1 night upon our exit of Costa Rica. While the staff is VERY friendly, helpful, accommodating and speaks English, it is not a Bed and Breakfast. This is more of an outdoor motel - however we had a very early flight so did not get to experience breakfast. The rooms were cute, spacious and appeared... More

When first coming to Costa Rica I was most fortunate to have Melrost B&B presented to me. With a warm friendly greeting, a clean comfy room and a generous breakfast in the morning I knew I was in the right place.They are just a short five minuet free shuttle to the airport and will pick you up from the airport...

We had a great service at the Melrost. It is really near from the airport. Room is clean and nice. Only little thing: it is a little bit noisy. But people around was respectful so we were able to sleep. Maybe one tip to not hear noise: put fan in the room, so the noise of it will hide little... More
