Roberto and Yvonnia made us feel like we were part of the family. Any questions we had they went out of their way to answer for us. Mapped out a good route for us to take to Arenal, and gave us an example of what "Tico" hospitality is all about. A great way to leave the 'western culture' behind, and... More

We stayed at Hotel Mi Tierra the night before we flew back to USA. We had received many recommendations for this place, and it did not disappoint. The owners were so very very helpful and charming. They truly live the pura vida and are the most kind people we met on our entire trip. They offered us advice on where... More

Overall, Iliked Hotel Mi Tierra. It's a short taxi ride from the bus station. Also, you can walk to the city center from this place. The room was a bit small. My sister liked that it came with cable television. It was nice to watch some tv at night after being technological free for a while on our travels. We... More

Great atmosphere and very, very helpful staff. Roberto and Yvonnia are fabulous and run this small hotel really well. They are also artists, so they decorate with their own art, and other guests were invariably very friendly and interesting and one can easily strike up a conversation. Rooms are basic, no frills, but clean. Breakfast is authentic CR, home made.... More

On our arrival in Alajuela, my bf and I visited Hotel Alajuela and Hotel La Guaria and were not impressed. We found Hotel Mi Tierra (not in the Lonely Planet but should be) just one block past La Guaria. It was a nice clean and quiet hotel, with satellite cable (US channels), a pool, a nice big breakfast included, and... More

While we usually stay in more high-end accommodations, we found Mi Tierra to be a great stopping point before and after our travels in Costa Rica. The location, near the town center, was convenient. The hotel is a comfortable, safe oasis in the city of Alajuela. Our teenagers happily spent the day there while the adults explored a nearby volcano.... More

We stayed here just one night on our way out of San Jose in a room with private bath. The attendant was friendly and nice. The room was comfortable and clean with a tv. The shower was very cold despite having one of those scary electric heaters attached. In email correspondence they promised taxi fare paid to the airport. They... More

Hotel Mi Tierra is a budget hotel close to the airport for San Jose, Costa Rica. Though in an old part of Alajuela it is a very secured and safe place to stay. It is owned by a Costa Rican couple who also do kayaking tours. The owners are very helpful. The place is clean and a good costa rican... More
