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!

We walked here (20 minutes from the airport) and found tucked away, in a neighborhood, this two story hotel with a gracious balcony. Close to downtown Alajuela and of all things, a mall, this is the perfect place to arrive and leave from. Very clean and safe.

I stayed at Melrost for one night after a late flight. The owners were so accommodating and picked me up from the airport and dropped me off to the coach the next morning! The room was very comfortable and they even offered to goto the store for me when I realised I had forgotten something! Thanks so much will definitely... More

We always try and stay at Melrose BandB because it is so convenient to the airport and the owners and employees are so friendly, it is very clean, safe and comfortable. It is in a quiet neighborhood but within walking distance of the mall. We are always amazed that they remember our family and welcome us with open arms. We... More

We have stayed in Melrost B&B for our final night. The accommodation is approx. 7mins from the airport and the owners offer free transport at any time of the day which is very handy. Our room was spacious with really comfortable big beds, nice bathroom with hot shower, coffee machine and tasteful décor. There is a small shopping centre 10mins... More

We stayed at Melrost in May 2010 and again in April 2014. Katia & Rolando are excellent hosts, and as with most Ticos, very friendly and accommodating; both speak very good English. Our visit was in connection with a 'Get to Know Costa Rica' tour that started and ended at Melrost. Transport to and from the airport , which is... More

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
