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

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
