Quite, clean, home like feel. Stayed on two separate occasions and quite pleased. Charming court yard and excellent morning breakfast. Close to restaurants, shopping, market, and town square. All staff were friendly and helpful. 10 min drive to San Jose airport.

We have stayed at this B&B for the last 5 years when leaving Costa Rica and have enjoyed every visit. Staff are friendly, rooms are comfortable and clean. Food is very good and the owner cooks when on site. The location is perfect and not too noisy. There is a good used book store and TexMex restaurant close by.

Needed a hotel near the San Jose Airport for our last night. Instead of a boring and more expensive option right at the airport, we tried this small local place a block from Alajuela's central plaza and a 10-15 minutes taxi ride from the airport. We stayed in their most expensive room with private bath and A/C ( about $86... More

The location is very convenient to get to the park, shops, food, and super market, yet set back on a quiet street. The room was nicely decorated, the staff is super friendly, and the breakfast was a surprise! To get in and out of the hotel, the front door has to be opened by the staff, which at night was...

Great little hotel. The cheaper rooms are very small and no A/C. But the nicer rooms are very nice. I would very much recommend this place as a first night or last night hotel close to the airport. Breakfast was great, granola with yogurt and fresh fruit, and whatever omelet you wanted. The blonde girl who works and the front... More

Cleanliness-We thought the rooms were spotless and the hotel and gardens was so nicely cared for. Breakfast-delicious, cooked to... More

Nice little hotel with rooms set around a central courtyard (ask for an inside room as it will be quieter). A nice welcome despite arriving on a late flight, and an excellent breakfast. Taxi drivers from the airport know it, but do take a copy of the address, just in case...

The hotel is well located - close to the airport and restaurants in Alajuela and the staff are friendly and helpful. They also organise your taxi if you are flying out of San Jose and it's included in the cost of the accommodation - we found that very helpful too! The breakfast was awesome and was the best I had...

We stayed the night we flew in and returned 3 weeks later for the 3 days/evenings before flying home again. The rooms were lovely, quiet & clean, the staff so helpful & polite & the whole property had such character & charm. The breakfasts' they served in the cozy, open-air eating area were far from continental. Your got a three-course... More

We used Hotel Los Volcanes as an overnight stopping place in the city, near the Juan Santamaria airport, just to spend the night on both ends of our visit to Costa Rica. It is a ten dollar cab ride from the airport and they paid the taxi fare back to the airport on our departure. Mauricio took care of us... More
