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.

We stayed at the Eskalima at the beginning and at the end of our holiday in Costa Rica. Being on a long term bike trip, we used the hotel to meet our sons who came over from Germany to join us and to be together at Christmas. Hotel Eskalima is an outstandingly clean and very convenient hotel. It's location only... More

Didn't stay here, but visited it. Circumstances didn't make a stay practical. However, the staff were very generous and helpful in finding us a place that would work for our family of 10 coming from 4 different US cities. What I saw was a clean and well kept place, and I was grateful for the help the staff offered us.

Hotel is simple and clean, and works as an overnight stopover in San Jose if you’re driving out the next day to the beach or mountains. The staff was great, they made sure everything was sorted and spoke English exceptionally. The neighborhood was full of locals and pretty urban, which was great for us, but if you prefer everything to... More

We stayed at Hotel Eskalima for one night after we missed our flight out of Costa Rica and it was perfect for what we needed. Great prices, clean rooms, and helpful service. There was a couple sodas and panederias that lined the city streets around us and even a Pizza Hut where we ate after we checked in. Cozy and... More
