The worst hotel ever ! The taxidriver at the airport totally ignored the hotel we were asking for and drove us first at La Guaria Hotel. When we made him clear that we won't stay there, he drove us to Charly's. Because it was late and dark, we got out and stayed there for one night. Unfortunately for the host... More

We heard of this hotel from one of the random guys at the airport. (Didn't do our research). Our flight landed around 10pm and we didn't have many options. The hotel was semi-nice but definitely over priced. $55usd. The hotel host was very friendly with pretty good English. Breakfast was minimal. Toast. Jam. Some fruit. NO SLEEP. Our room was... More

We came into Alajuela late and had our reservation at another hotel cancelled, we chose to give Charley's a try and it was amazing! Charley was so friendly and the room was reasonably priced. I slept very well. Breakfast is included- which for me is always a plus! It was a light affair with fresh fruit toast and coffee. It... More

We enjoyed this place very much. It has an open and welcoming personality thanks to Charly and his family. Everyone is always upbeat and engaging without getting annoying. English is spoken here. Located in Alajuela only a short taxi ride from the airport. Within 4 blocks you have easy access to excellent restaurants, the farmer's market, the central plaza, museums,... More

My friend and I ended up staying here by chance. Charlie is a super nice guy, who's always so patient with people do not speak Spanish like me :) Rooms are spacious, and the one we stayed last night can hold 6-7 people, with a bath room inside. There is also a beautiful garden where you can have breakfast. Lovely... More

We were looking for a low budget place to sleep and at Charly's we found a average (small) room with no window to the street for a fair price. The owner is very helpful and friendly. The breakfast in the nice garden was good, WIFI in the room. All together a good first night in Costa Rica.

The floors looked like they hadn't been mopped in a lonnnng time (I confirmed that by wetting the bathmat and wiping the floors down... More

The breakfast was contental but there was heaps of fresh fruit - including some of the best papaya I have ever had! The staff... More

My cab driver claimed she could not find the hotel I suggested and said it was in another town entirely (which ended up being false). She took me to Charly's Place, saying it would be $30 a night. He tried to charge me $40, and the rooms were pretty nasty. I know I should have left but I was on... More
