Before climbing Chirripo you are suppose to get a good rest however was not the case in this hotel... I could have noticed immediately that the sheets are not clean and during the night I could feel urine smell from the covers.. I know the place is close to the entrance to the park so that's why is very convenient... More

Hotel Uran is a great choice if you plan to hike up the Chirripó. The staff is really helpful, and the food is competent (full of needed carbs). The rooms are very clean, and most accommodate up to 4 people.

We spend a night before climbing the highest Costa Rican mountain Chirripo, this Hotel is just 30 meters from Km 0 "Zero" trail, this zone is very steep so if you dont know this fact you may be reserving a hotel that is 2 kms or further and you should walk all this distance over a very steep road to...

We spent one night here after escaping the other hotel in town. Hotel room is simple but the view from common area is beautiful. The restaurant has the best seafood soup of Costa Rica and other yummy dishes! Hotel manager Roy speaks great English and he went out of his way to help our family with the hiking and transportation.... More

Fue mi primera visita a chirripo el lugar es limpio, la atencion es de primera, super preparados, debido a que la gente sale temprano para empezar a subir el Chirripo, el desayuno empieza a las 4am por lo que es un exito, ademas no se preocupen por el carro ya que no hay costo extra por dejarlo en el hotel...

It is a cold unfriendly place. The music is put on loud early. I was given tasteless scrambled eggs when I asked for fried and there was scum in the bottom of my coffee cup. A bird flew into a large window pane and died during breakfast and we were told it happens all the time. A giant stag horn... More

Good value with clean, very basic rooms (I was in a dorm room - private rooms may be better). Great breakfast. Only downside was the staff who were not very friendly or welcoming, which was a shame as the place could be much much 'warmer' with a little more interest from them.

We stayed in this nice hotel the night before treking up to Chirripo. It was a good choice, as the hotel is located at the trail head. The rooms are nice and clean, the staff of the hotel is very friendly. They prepare the breakfast from 4:30, so that you can start your hike early enough. They let you leave... More

The location is hard to beat if youre climbing Chiripo! This place has a little bit of a 1955 roadside motel feel, with some pretty odd color combinations, but the rooms are clean, with hot water, and a great restaurant. The staff here was pleasant and helpful. We would happily stay here again.

Stayed here for a night. Reasonably priced. The restaurAnt was the best part! The sopa negro, vegetable arroz and the pasta is so good. We are vegan and they catered to our needs! The rooms are stocked with blankets and are nice and cool. The location is beautiful you couldn't ask for more. The hot shower was great!
