“Modern, calm place in Alajuela & the nicest staff ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2011

New hotel in Alajuela (opened in 2008) close to a small park on the west-end of the city.

Although Alajuela itself is definitely not a nice place to be we enjoyed our stay in Eskalima Hotel which was due to the nice and clean rooms but first of all owing to Fabiola, the great and nice girl at the reception. She helped us with some recommendations for the city but did also all the email- and telephone work for making a reservation for us in Cuba AND prepared a very nice breakfast (you have three options to choose from).

As Alajuela is closer to the international airport than San José, Eskalima Hotel is a very good place to spend the day and/or night before your flight back.

Many thanks
