My husband and I stayed here our first night in Costa Rica. The room was clean, the employees are extremely helpful, and the location is perfect. We were a little apprehensive about walking around at night after reading some blogs about Alajuela but we went to dinner at Jalapeno Central and never felt a bit uncomfortable on the walk there...

We stayed at Hotel Catedral for 2 nights. It was just what we needed, close to the airport, clean, air conditioned and in a location where we could walk to everything. It is an older building with character overlooking the Central Parque and the Cathedral. It is on a busy city corner and has all the noise that goes with... More

My husband & I stayed at Hotel Catedral for a night during our recent Costa Rica trip. We chose the hotel because of its proximity to the airport and its affordable price. The hotel is cute, clean, well located in downtown Alajuela and within 10 minutes driving distance from the San Jose airport. The staff was friendly and the breakfast... More

Our expectations were not high but we still found ourselves disappointed in eery way with this hotle. this hotel is very centrally located bit...We arrived late at night to a cool and unhelpful reception. The balcony to the room was accessed through a separate door which appeared at first to be a locked closet. The battery for the air conditioner... More

We stayed at Hotel Catedral the first night that we landed in San Jose. We only stayed there one night, but it was exactly what we needed. Nothing fancy per se, convenient to the airport, and in the center of alajuela. However, there should be a slight warning about noise. I feel like I was able to hear every single... More

Small tight room, poorly furnished with an oversized king bed, leaving no room for much else. Very tiny balcony. One small table. One big armoire, but difficult to use because the bed is so close. Small bathroom. Noisy street. But really, it's just a place to stay for a night or two while you wait for your plane, or your... More

Stayed last night before 6am flight. Short cab ride to airport which the owners kindly arranged. Very nice people. Place is fairly clean. Neighborhood is ok. Had some interesting bars but not many neat places to eat. Not too far from Poas volcano. If you stay here and are looking for sleep don't get a room facing the Church. There... More

“This hotel is cute, felt safe, close to the airport and overall the best value we have found near the airport, as we have travelled in and out from SJO quite a bit. The room was clean and comfy. Run by a husband and wife, they are friendly and helpful about where to eat, shop and park. The hotel is... More
