I stayed at Hotel Hojarascas for a week while studying at the Centro de Idiomas Intercultura. The hotel is centrally located in Heredia, close to the Central Market, Intercultura and the Universidad Nacional, and is only a 15 taxi ride from the San José airport. The rooms are clean and there is ample storage for clothing. The bathroom is spacious... More

Last week, I was in Heredia for a conference at the National University and stayed between Sunday and Sunday at this hotel. Although it is not... More

My sister and I stayed one week at this hotel while we were studying Spanish at Intercultura school, a few blocks away. We had a very nice stay : clean and safe room, excellent home-made breakfasts, plenty of information from Omar, one of the owners, who made us feel at home. We had access to the kitchen, which added to... More

My daughter who is studying at Ulatina in Heredia had a recommendation from her professor for me to stay at Hotel Hojarascas; excellent choice. José Omar is the best! He waited for me; I had a 1:35 am flight, was so professional, warm, welcoming and helpful. Anticipated my every need: wake up call, calling a taxi, local prices/money exchange/attempting to...

I stayed at Hotel Hojarascas for a week while I was studying Spanish at the Intercultura School. The hotel is family owned and operated and it doesn't take long for one to feel right at home. Omar, one of the owners and an accomplished cook in his own right, prepares a different Costa Rican specialty every morning (the hotel offers... More

I stayed for 8 (then chose to return for another week) nights with my 4yr son and 61yr mom who was quite nervous to venture to Central America. There are few people in this world that truly treat you like family on first meeting: Omar is a gem on this earth. To come to a foreign country, merely book a... More

There are plenty of places to stay in Heredia. The Hotel Hojarascas is absolutely worth the small price premium. If you need to stay in Heredia, look no further! I was absolutely delighted with my weeklong stay at this property. The owners and their friendly staff took good care of me and provided every service with great diligence and pride.... More

This unobtrusive hotel in the center of Heredia is a gem. Family-owned and operated, we were told that we should consider ourselves to be in our own home. The rooms were immaculate, plenty of hot water and ample storage for clothing. We had use of the kitchen and refrigerator. With markets so nearby, it was easy to fix a quick... More

This wonderful family hotel is conveniently located in Heredia. Omar, one of the owners, made us feel at home immediately. The rooms are comfortable and clean; there is ample room for clothes. Omar joyously prepared breakfasts for us which included fresh fruits, coffee and other typical Costa Rican breakfast treats. With the mercados and other food stores nearby, guests can... More

Bustling Heredia can be intimidating, but what a great comerece town. And the hotel located only a block from the municipal market and many other stores and restaurants made this business trip enjoyable. From the moment I checked in Omar made me feel like one of the family. Having to work late at night he would take care of parking... More
