We had a nice stay at hotel Pacande. The rooms are clean and fairly priced. The people are very friendly and helpfull. The breakfast was a bit disappointing, but OK if you only stay a few nights.

Good place to stay on our last night in Costa Rica before an early morning flight. From the outside, it doesn't look like much. It's in a row with another hotel and a hostel. But the inside is very clean and welcoming. We were in the upstairs suite. The room was very large and cute with wood paneling and a... More

After walking around Alajuela looking for a decent and reasonably priced room, we checked out Hotel Pacande and were pleasantly surprised. It doesn't look like much from the outside - it's sandwiched between a hostel and another hotel and has bars covering the windows and doors. Constanza opened the gate for us and was warm and welcoming, setting the mood... More

Good: We booked this hotel directly through the hotel's website. We just stayed here for one night on the front end of our trip to Costa Rica. We paid about $35 per night. The service was excellent, and it's in a great location from the airport (5 or 10 minutes by taxi). Also, we had a TV with cable (including... More

We stayed at the Hotel Pacande in May and were very happy. The staff go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. They helped us arrange tours and solved a problem we were having with another company. The hotel is clean and safe. It is a great budget hotel.

Well, I guess I will be the first to write a review. Good things about this hotel: 1. It is safe. The only access is through a full gated front. 2. The owner is nice and pleasant. Bad things were: 1. The rooms are dark and not finished to a standard acceptable in the US. Not well maintained. 2. No... More
