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

This place is a peaceful refuge in the middle of a busy city. It is ideally located close to a big park and shopping. The staff is outstanding. Mauricio and Jose were fantastic hosts; courteous, knowledgeable, and efficient. The rooms are very clean and quiet. Both Poas Volcano and La Paz Garden are a cheap bus ride away. The free... More

Wow!! So many great things to say about this place. Clean, friendly, welcoming, comfortable. I recommend staying for dinner, as I had the most intimate dinner and DELICIOUS shrimp linguine with blue cheese and tomato sauce! We had to leave at 4am for a flight and Jose was up to show us out the door and the free cab to... More

We slept in Los Volcabes for 2 nights. Overall, the place is nice and good for its price. The main pros are: 1. Very good breakfast (muzly, omlett, juice, toasts, coffee) 2. A delicious and diverse dinner 3. A very friendly host 4. Located near the main park and piazza (good when travelling with kids) However, there are some cons:... More

Only a few minutes from the San Jose airport, this B&B is a great find! We had a red-eye flight into SJO so arrived at the hotel at 1am. They were waiting up for us and had us into our room in minutes! We had read other reviews recommending the rooms in the back garden, so that is what we... More

In a great location just a block from the town square and 5 minutes from the airport, this family run hotel was clean and comfortable with a very friendly and helpful staff. The restaurant at the back was a real surprise, It featured several exquisitely prepared seafood dishes at very reasonable prices and fantastic service.
