I stayed at the Berlor for the night prior to meeting my family in Tamarindo. The stay was comfortable and the staff was very helpful. The little restaurant served a very good pizza. The location was not in the best part of town however I never felt unsafe.

This little hotel is more like a B&B than hotel. Staff was extremely helpful in assisting us upon arrival and throughout our stay. Room was as pictured and accommodated all 5 of us. Bathroom decor was outdated but functioned! Especially liked offer of restaurant staff to come tell us when our dinner was ready so we could use the time... More

Stayed before an early flight at the end of my holiday. I arrived around 2pm and was lucky enough the weather was nice so I could sit out in the Garden. The only disturbance was the airplane noise, but then that was to be expected (airport is a 5 minute drive away) Don't expect to swim in the pool -... More

If you are looking for a fancy place, then don't stay here. If you are looking for a very basic place, with wifi and close to the airport for a good rate, then this is your place. Rooms are smaller and outdated. Bathrooms look like cruise ships bathrooms. Free shuttle worked great for our 5 am departure this morning. It's... More

Hotel Berlor is 3 minutes away from San Hose Airport. It is very simple, nice and clean. It has shuttle to the airport every hour starting 3 o'clock at night. So, as we had a flight at 6 AM, it was extremely convenient. We have no idea how is breakfast, but they serve you coffee (free) at 4 o'clock:). And,... More

We stayed here for a few hours before our 1250am flight back to the US not expecting much ! We were pleasantly surprised at this very cute hotel close to the airport. Ricardo, the manager, was very informative and a pretty good bartender!! Great staff and kitchen.

I visited this hotel in my way home to Spain, and was excellent, small but clean, super close to the airport, great customer service, and they have a restaurant with the best pizza ever, free breakfast and free shuttle service to the airport. The manager makes a big difference, same the hotel´s staff... five stars!!

This place is close to the airport but not too close. It is also very close to most of the car rental places which is why we took it for our last nite in C R. We had an early flight and figured we'd get rid of the car and use their free transpo to the airport. It went perfectly.... More

We wanted a hotel near the airport in San Jose which was smaller and had local character. The Hotel Berlor was just the thing - friendly staff, clean quiet rooms, a lovely courtyard for sitting or dining. Plus, good nearby bus service to central San Jose.
