We stayed at Hotel Los Volcanes for one night before leaving for the airport the next morning. The hotel room was basic but clean and comfortable, however it was very hot and stuffy. There was a ceiling fan but it wasn't very effective. It was much cooler outside of the room than it was inside. We were right across from... More

We had stayed in other bed and breakfast places throughout our two week stay and this was for the last night before flying out (everything for our trip was prebooked and paid months in advance). Every other place had private bathrooms and exceeded expectations. However right when I got here I had a bad feeling which I should've listened to.... More

We had no interest in spending time in San Jose, so this was a good spot to stay for a night between time on the Nosara beaches and an early flight the next morning. The room was small, but fine, the private bathroom clean, the shower water hot. The taxi to the airport in the early morning was included in... More

I've stayed here twice, both times it was the night before I flew home. The rooms are nice and clean, the breakfast is good, and the free taxi to the airport is great. It's the perfect place to spend the last night to be close to the airport.

We stayed at this hotel for one very brief night (arriving late and leaving early). As such, we were unable to enjoy breakfast. The room we had was very basic, with shared bathroom. The service was adequate, but not very friendly. In consistence, the room was relatively cheap, making it a reasonable price/quality ratio. The hotel was well enough for... More

This is an interesting property on a number of different levels. From what I can tell, the "shared bathroom" suites at the front of the property were at one point part of a hospital many years ago. Now, they are relatively spartan studio rooms that are packed in--one next to another. The hotel is clean and the price of our... More

When you arrive late in San José and needs a place to stay in nearby Alajuela, before heading where you are heading to in Costa Rica, you can consider this sympathetic hotel. Not too expensive. I got a room with a ceiling fan and it did the trick. However, we were too close to the noisy road. Would suggest asking... More

We stayed here for a night on each end of our vacation in Costa Rica. You can't beat the proximity to the airport. The hotel is very cozy and cute. On our first night, there was a confusion with our bed situation. We needed one room with 2 beds, and one room with 1 bed. We were given two rooms... More

Hotel los Volcanes continues to be an excellent stop-over choice for travellers transiting through San Jose. Since our last visit in 2009, the rooms have been upgraded (most notably with a modern hot-water system in the shower to replace the older "switch on the shower head" devices that gave North American travellers nightmares. Rooms are comfortable, if a bit small,... More

My wife, daughter and I actually stayed twice during our recent trip to Costa Rica -- our first night and our last night. Hotel Los Volcanes is located conveniently close to the airport. We had a rental car (and there's an affordable and secure 24-hour parking lot around the block), but I understand the taxi ride from the airport is... More
