The staff here is very very nice and helpful and the location of the hotel is just as great. As far as the hotel itself it's like many people have mentioned, a place to stay one night while in transit. As it's in the center the street is noisy during the day and then from about 11pm-6am (if I remember... More

Stayed one night - this is a nice little hotel for a one-night stay when arriving or departing from the SJO airport. Nothing fancy, but for our stay it was clean and bright. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and I believe available at the front desk 24 hours. We thought the location was great, being able to stroll... More

We stayed 3 nights upon arriving in CR. Not interested in San Jose, we wanted to be closer to the airport, Poas and Sarchi. It was nice to be across form the Catedral and park. This was especially good to be by a landmark, since there are NO street signs in Alajuela! The staff was very helpful and attentive. They... More

Although the location was great across the street from the cathedral and park and convenient to local restaurants, the room was unacceptable. The sheets were rumpled and the comforter dirty. I picked hairs off the sheets before lying down. Although the website listed "designer toiletries." the only item in the room was a single tiny bar of soap. It took... More

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
