Really nice people run this hotel, but the rooms are depressingly grim and really basic. My room was about 8 feet square, no windows, a shower with no hot water, and a really worn appearance The only motivation for staying here again would be that I had absolutely no other option. Grim

I would suggest you spend a little more than one or two nights in this place, since most travellers do that and didn't get to enjoy it the way we did. Because we were there for almost 3 to 4 days, we pretty much felt like we were enjoying our own villa. We hung out in the pool and at... More

The review "awful" posted on aug 7 is very accurate. How this room ended up costing 77 dollars is beyond me. The room was comically and terribly small. This was the last place we stayed in costa rica and by far this was the worst value. The window of the room didn't lock and opened onto a dark hallway-also making... More

Well I flew out of Newark, N.J. and the plane traffic was backed up due to Hurricane Sandy so I arrived in San Jose Costa Rica 2 1/2 hrs. later then I thought. Grabbed a taxi C2,000 colones and was quite worried everyone had retired for the evening. There was the owner opening the gate much to my relief! A... More

We decided to stay at the Hotel Berlor based on reviews we had seen here. Unfortunately the Hotel Berlor did not live up to our expectations. First and foremost we were misled about the price of the rooms. I had reserved a single room before we left on our trip and the reservation confirmation I received from the hotel quoted... More

Hotel Berlor is a great deal. I stayed there entering and leaving and loved it. It is a mile from the airport. A small local family place.

If you are the kind of traveler who likes to experience "local atmosphere" then you'd like this place. It's more like a bed and breakfast and you feel like you're staying at someone's big home. The beds were big and comfortable for our family of 4 (kids 11 & 14) - we had a king and two doubles, which you... More

This boutique hotel is very close to the airport and has a shuttle service. The staff at this hotel was the friendliest, most helpful I have ever experienced on any trip. Amanda and Adolfo called several different places to help us rent a car when I realized that I had reserved one for the wrong date. They also gave us... More

A small place with only a few rooms, currently on a busy road with construction. Clean room, friendly staff. I booked a single and got a very small room that has a shower and toilet tucked into one corner of the room, and a TV in another corner. There is a beautiful inner courtyard with a small pool.

We asked our tour company for a hotel where our shuttle bus would drop us off. They offered us Hotel Berlor. Most of the reviews seemed OK but I have to agree with twosteptweetie that this place was creepy. It is not in a good neighborhood and you are locked in behind iron gates.
