Great price and overall service. Great location for the airport which is 5 to 15 minutes away depending on traffic. Staff is very accommodating. Everything is clean and water is hot. Room #2, next to the office, should be avoided, as you can hear everything including people coming and going throughout the night.

Taking a solo trip for adventure to Costa Rica and the Hotel Los Volcanes B&B was my first and last night flying in and out of San Jose. Simply put - this place is fantastic. Clean and welcoming accommodations but even better people! The operators and their staff were so very helpful with making your stay the best it could... More

Enjoyed my stay here on my last night. Clean, beyond friendly service and the best breakfast ever. Beautiful historic property with open courtyard in the heart of Alajuela just a few short blocks from parque central. Free airport shuttle!

Jose and Daniel run an incredible hotel in Alajuela. It is a wonderful place to stay close to the airport, the central park, museum and central market. They also make a delicious breakfast! Clean and friendly staff make the stay very enjoyable. I would recommend it to anyone.

We would never stay anywhere else when traveling through San Jose Costa Rica. Hotel Los Volcanes has been our only choice of accommodation since we have been regularly visiting Costa Rica for the past two decades. The location is ideal, close enough to the airport but in the charming city center near the park and church. The family owned and... More

Sometimes you need a place to crash near the airport that's also in a decent city environment. Here you go. Get a good map or GPS; this place is in the grid of streets that is Alajuela. No street signs. My reservation printout gave me GPS coordinates, which is the best way to find the place. There is street parking... More

Stayed here the first night of my first visit to Costa Rica and felt immediately at home. More like a B&B than a hotel, this place has enough cute quirks to ensure that it becomes a character in your memories of your vacation. The concierge greeted us at the door when our cab pulled up, and although we were a... More

A charming, small property that feels more like a home than a hotel. Nothing fancy here, but so clean, comfortable and welcoming. We stayed in a double right off the little stone courtyard, and could hear the fountain outside our window at night. The included breakfast is made to order and served in the courtyard, where you can sit at... More

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
