In reality there are no a lot of options to choose from in San Isidro. In general the place is ok and the included breakfast was alright. The room was a bit small but had a balcony which was nice. Good location. Would stay there again.

This hotel is pretty basic, but a good value for the price. Different sized rooms are available with or without bathroom. I stayed in a double with bathroom in the hallway. Decent size room, with a cable TV, and the bathrooms were pretty clean. Nothing luxurious, but a good getaway if you live in rural Costa Rica!

This is the perfect place to stay for the budget traveler on their way to or from anywhere in Southern Costa Rica. Hotel Chirripo is centrally located near shops and services in San Isidro, bus station, and roads out of town. However, it was surprisingly quiet as it is set off the street and in a solid building. The staff... More

We arrived in Perez Zeledon without any place to stay, not knowing anything of the city. Our decision was finally made, as we saw that on of the probably best located hotels in town fitted perfectly to our small budget: 13500 colones for the cheapest twin, which made about 27 dollars for two. The hotel has everything you need, it's... More

I stayed here on the recommendation of a friend, and I'm glad I did. I chose a private room with shared bathrooms. The room, bathrooms, and whole hotel are all very clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. I will pop in here again if my travels take me through San Isidro!

Recently in Perez Zeledon on business, I chose this hotel because of it's excellent location (faces the Parque Central) and Gated Parking with Security Cameras. The entrance is a little hidden and reception is down a hall, behind window barrier. I was offered my choice of two rooms--one small, clean and neat with a fan, the other larger with A/C... More

Right on the central parque, Hotel Chirripo has freiendly and helpful staff, bright and spotless rooms, with large bathrooms, some with balconies. Sheets are pure white cotton, crisply ironed, pillows are soft. I only wished that the town was more intersting, so that I could have stayed longer.

Slept here 1 night. The hotel is located in the (not so pretty) center of San Isidro, very close to the bus station. I took the renovated room without airco and with private bath. The room was really nice and clean. It was very welcome after spend some days in shared bathrooms and dorms. The people were very nice and... More

We met a young man on the bus from SJO, he asked where we were staying. We said we didnt really know but heard Hotel Chirripo was good. When we got off the bus we were swarmed by taxi drivers. This young fellow yelled to follow him. His dad was waiting for him They gave us a ride right to... More

Great location, Great Price, and Great People at the desk.... Located "on the square" you are in the center of what action may be happening.... Traveling Solo, I paid $16 USD for a single room with a shared bath... While very basic, it was extremely clean. A fan and a TV in the room was a nice touch. The fan... More
