The room and bathroom were clean. The breakfast was adequate, plenty of fresh fruit, the traditional rice and beans...The staff was friendly and helpful and most of them spoke English. Their wi-fi was good. The hotel is conveniently located. Drawbacks - most of the rooms don't have a window and if you are a light sleeper and happen to be... More

Once I got used the idea that $70 was cheap for Costa Rica and I saw the place in daylight, I was not dissatisfied with our hotel. It is located in a charming old theater with antique camera equipment and a dramatic, sweeping staircase. The location is perfect for walking around the city--a great Central Valley base for exploration. We... More

Very disappointed in this hotel. We were basically forced to stay here due to an unforeseen emergency late in the evening. The gentleman at check in provided no service at all. Our room was upstairs a few doors down from the elevator. Once we got into our room I was scared to place anything on the floors since it just... More

Our room had no window, it was very loud, smelled very ugly and in the bathroom were cockroaches. The breakfast: Toast, fruits which looked anything but fresh. I asked for margarine or butter, the waitor told "No margarine today". The transparent liquid called coffee tasted like sluice water. The only thing positive in this hotel are the 3 internetaccesses in... More

For what it is, it was very nice. Don't expect a 4 star hotel, but it's well worth the price. The Hotel America is consistent with other hotels of the same vintage we've stayed in in other Latin American nations. It's not what you find in the US, but shouldn't be expected to be so. We were well pleased with... More

This is a decent place if you have business in central Heredia. It's in the middle of downtown so it is conveniently located; close to the park and local business. A casino is almost next door if you a gambler. Rooms were clean, beds comfortable, staff very friendly, good hot water, TV and coffee was ready at 6:00am every morning... More

I have stayed at this hotel several times and I find that it is o.k. for the money. It is comfortable and clean and the employees are friendly. I would recommend a short stay at this hotel.

...Nice rooms, but you can hear the people next door gargling int he bathroom, other's TV all night long, babies screaming, and and every door slamming closed, at all hours. We took sleeping pills and used ear plugs, but we were still kept up late, after midnight, and awakened by loud, early rises at 5 AM. The morning staff was... More

As the hotel provided by the tour group, I did not have much choice in hotel, but considering Hotel America was listed in Rough Guide travelbook, I expected a little better. While the staff were friendly enough (even when we were checking in at 11:30pm), the hotel had little else to offer. The rooms were on the small side of... More
