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

I was traveling with my younger brother and we started our trip at this hotel. The staff as so friendly and helpful, plus they seemed genuinly intrested in what was bringing us to Costa Rica. We had a crazy early flight the next morning and the staff met us for check out and called us a cab. On our return... More

On our most recent visit to Costa Rica, my husband and I spent the night before we left Costa Rica at Hotel Catedral Casa Cornejo. The location is great. it is right near the Cathedral and Alajuela Central Park. There are several restaurants within walking distance. There is a MegaSuper right across the park where you can do your coffee... More

We stayed at Hotel Catedral for 1 night last month needing a place to sleep near the airport to catch a 7AM flight. It really was just ok and we would try a different place the next time. Cleanliness could have been better and the towels had a musty smell. The rooms have AC, hot water and a tv. The... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here the night before we were due to fly home from San Jose. The hotel is by no means upscale but the service overrides this. The owner was extremely accommodating and friendly and made us feel very welcome after a long day traveling. Recommended to anyone needing a budget hotel in San Jose.

This hotel is remodelled from an old house, and situated on a busy street corner thats insulated by very thin doors, you can hear EVERYTHING happening around you. People talking on the street feel like they are right in your room. Not bad if you have to stop over for a night, but there is very little to do in... More

Stayed one night after a late night arrival. Nice and clean. Manager was great. We actually went a couple blocks down for a couple beers before I went to bed and he was full of great information. Would definitely stay again.

We chose to stay at this hotel due to it's proximity to the airport and its reasonable price. We arrived at SJO in the evening, picked up our rental car and found the hotel with ease. Easy 5 minute drive from the airport and free parking. My fiance's dad flew in with us last minute (we were getting married later... More
