We came to this hotel after long flight. This is not a luxury place but has all the facilities that we needed. Very good beds, clean bathroom, safe, refrigerator and air-conditioning. I would recommend adding at least one chair to the room. Breakfast is good; you can choose one of three types. The hotel is in the center of Alajuela... More

I stayed at Hotel Eskalima when arriving in Costa Rica. It is a few minutes by taxi to the airport and only cost me $10 for the taxi trip. The receptionists were so helpful. They helped me with my Spanish and also advised me on buses to take around the area and in San Jose. They also told me where... More

This is an inexpensive hotel in Alajuela. It is about 15 minutes from the airport by cab. We found the employees to be very helpful, it was spotless, comfortable, and inexpensive. They also serve a lovely Tico breakfast. I would definitely stay there again.

Great location, quite, clean, and friendly english speaking staff. I took the bus from San Jose to hotel and then at 5am took a bus to airport - bus terminal (TUASA) located 3 blocks from hotel. The staff made me free breakfast :-) Very comfortable and clean. Great value. Exceeded my expectations!

This place was perfect for our last night in Costa Rica with a very early flight. The staff were very helpful in telling us where to buy last minute souvenirs and how to order in food from a local restaurant. It is also conveniently located in Alajuela close to shops and grocery stores in case you want to bring home... More

Stayed at this downtown city hotel across from the park for one night to catch an early flight home. Parking was secure and the desk clerk unlocked the gate to let us out at the designated 4:30AM time. The hotel was clean and secure and the rooms were nice with good hot showers, wifi and cable tv. Breakfast was included... More

The hotel is 2 blocks from the bus station, which makes it easy to get to and from the airport. The bus ride is 535 colones. My room was lower level, interior and there was very little road noise. Some fumes from the road did drift in during the morning. The bed was comfortable, but the walls were thin, luckily... More

We stayed at the Hotel Eskalima for a night on arrival in Costa Rica and then again as a stopover en route from the Caribbean coast to the Pacific. The short taxi ride from the airport to the hotel was about $10 (probably a little less if the driver knows where he's going :)). WiFi, parking and a choice of... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night on our way to La Fortuna in May of 2014. The employees were helpful and the hotel was decent. However, the area around is questionable. We parked a few streets up from the hotel as their parking lot hotel is very small and hard to spot. I asked a local police... More

My wife and I stayed at that hotel for a one night stay. It is not too far from the airport. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The room was clean and comfortable. Nothing negative to say about that place. I would recommend it to anyone.
