My life takes me in and out of Costa Rica on a regular basis and I have stayed here on and off for years. Like some relationships, I occasionally tire of the familiar and go in search of greener pastures, always returning with a new-found appreciation for what I had. It´s not perfect. In the cooler months, they could add... More

This is more in response to 'Wordgirl2013'. I read her review and was astounded. My first response was--"Get a Life". She was kind enough in her comments to state that the property was clean, which it is. But to think that a bustling city like Alajuela and a property right next to the Central Park will be quiet when she... More

My husband and 11 year old son and I stayed here one night in June. The good: friendly, English-speaking staff; transfer to airport included; hospitable and tasty full breakfast; clean. Disappointing: while it is clean, it is well worn; fearing the street noise reported by others in the front rooms, we asked for a back room. Problem is, with no... More

I've visited Los Volcanes already the fourth time, and would come back in the future if visiting Costa Rica. I personally think that it offers the best service around the airport and has with José the best and friendliest hotel manager I've ever come across. The rooms are clean and nice, the breakfast is really good with a choice of... More

Great hotel 2 blocks from central Alajuela, the park and the cathedral. Ten mins from San Jose Airport this place is quiet, comfortable and safe. Very close to cafes, restaurants, bars and shops. We splurged and got s private room with bathroom and air con for about $70. The offer cheaper rooms with shared bathrooms as well. We had an... More

For the cost of a mid-level room (which in my opinion is more than fair), I think your money is well spent here. The breakfast is excellent (eggs with ham, yogurt and granola, fruit smoothie, toast) and included is a free ride to the airport (via taxi, and it's a short ride). The owner is exceptionally nice and will make... More

As always, the staff was welcoming and attentive. The room was spotless, shared bath was clean, public areas tidy. I neglected to tell them I would have a car, but was sent to a public parking area just a short distance, literally around the corner where my car was safe and secure. I've stayed here numerous times and it's always... More

HLV is well-situated only 100m from the central square in Alajuela, It's a short taxi ride from Costa Rica's main airport, and in a smaller, quieter, more attractive town than San Jose. Because it's an "airport hotel" some guests can forget that they need to arrive or leave QUIETLY if they're doing so at very late or very early hours.... More

This is a gorgeous small hotel near the cathedral in Alajuela. The front of the building has a beautiful garden from which a double staircase leads up to the entrance. The interior is very clean and attractively decorated, and there is a lovely courtyard where a delicious breakfast is served in the morning. I would have been happy with our... More
