The cheapest hotel of our stay, and an excellent value for money. Rooms are very simple yet clean and functional, dont expect anything luxurious, but for 40$ it is more than worth it. Also has a few fitness equipment and a small pool and jacuzzi for this price. Very kind and helpfull staff. Close to airport. Highly recommended for first... More

Stayed four nights, was not quite sure what to think the first night as the hotel is exactly what they advertise "old". We quickly became comfortable there thanks to the women running the place and their handyman Luis. First night which was a Sunday was a bit noisy from the bar nearby, road out front, baby of other patrons and... More

The two lady staff were extremely helpful, kind and generous. They made my stay here highly comfortable and enjoyable. In terms of its location, it is very convenient as it located 15 minutes (taxi) away from the airport. I would highly recommend this place.

The service was great and the hotel is literally an "old house" converted into a hotel. It was by far one of the sketchiest places I have ever checked in, however the person in charge of the hotel is super friendly and would bend over backwards for customer service.

This was our first place we stayed at after a long flight to SJO. Room was clean and the hostess Lenny(?) was very friendly. She answered all of our questions. The only drawback was that the location was on a busy street so we could hear the cars zooming by. Breakfast was simple but good.

Hotel Old House is run by two young women who want to provide a 5 star experience for an incredibly reasonable rates. They provide homemade meals for an excelent price, clean rooms, comfortable mattresses (for real) and real pillows! There is space to hang out, a pool, weights, and it is close to the bus station in Alajuela. The airport... More
