We enjoyed the patio (has a pool although we didn't get in). The room was clean, but very small. There was a free breakfast the next morning that was very yummy. We appreciated having wi-fi that was complimentary as well. Very close to the airport and very inexpensive. The owner speaks English so it was easy for us gringos to... More

Flew into San Jose Airport and had booked this hotel to stay at one night so we could get picked up by a shuttle in the morning. It's more like a motel, but was a comfortable stay and the staff were very nice and helped however they could. The breakfast in the morning was good as well.

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 Bathroom decor was outdated but functioned!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 Rooms are smaller and outdated.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!!
