“Good value near airport”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

We stayed here before flying back to the States. The rooms were a little dated but we felt that it was a good bargain near the airport since it included wifi, free breakfast & transfers. Also, as opposed to the location of the Hampton Inn, you do have a nice garden with a Costa Rica feel. The restaurant was not expensive & offered typical Costa Rican food.

My daughters and I were fairly exhausted by the time we arrived, early evening, in San Jose. We followed the directions provided us by the extremely helpful and friendly staff at Hotel Aeropuerto and caught the free shuttle to the hotel. What a joy! We relaxed and enjoyed our clean and pleasant rooms and the delightful restaurant right there in the hotel.
The staff couldn't have been more helpful or friendly. The hotel itself is very pretty and feels very safe and comfortable. The price is a great value, and we ended up booking another night there on our way out, when we returned from the Pacific coast.
I totally recommend this hotel, and look forward to using it again when we return to Costa Rica.

I'm normally a fan of chains like the Hampton Inn, Holiday Inn Select, etc. but this little gem beats those other found around the airport at San José. At anywhere from 30-70$ cheaper, the Hotel Aeropuerto is a steal. This includes breakfast and taxi transfers both ways to and from the airport. A nice touch, you use a particular taxi company at airport arrivals and tell the cabbie the hotel will pick up the tab. Works great. The ride is about 5-7 minutes.

It's not luxury but we really liked the rustic atmosphere of the place. The restaurant attached has great food. The rooms are clean and large, yet with a slightly spartan feel to them. Service was extremely friendly and helpful. Two computers for guest use and wifi everywhere. It has a nice, small pool and patio area which we would have used and sat in the sun by if it weren't for the rain that poured the day we were there.

A terrific transit hotel that we would use again in a heartbeat.

We stayed here one night before flying back home. It's a nice airport hotel with free shuttle to the airport, free wifi, free breakfast and nice resto. Rooms are ok. Good value for the price since it's only $69 a night. :)

This hotel is 1/2 the price of the American chain motels near the airport. It's clean and charming, close to airport and easy to get find if you are using a rental car. The grounds are lovely, a little bit of paradise that close to the airport is wonderful. Pillows kinda old and lumpy. The hot water was so hot it could easily scald someone. Staff very friendly and ready to help. And it comes with breakfast.

My wife and I stayed at the hotel the first and last nights of our honeymoon, and were impressed with the convenience of staying here. Each of our rooms were a little musty, but not enough that it bothered us for more than a minute. I'm not sure if they are always a little musty, or if they were because it's the green season. The restaurant was excellent, and very reasonably priced.

The hotel will pay for your taxi that brought you to the hotel, so that's a BIG plus. Also, they have a shuttle to take you to the airport, anytime day or night. Score! :)

This hotel is very convenient for an early morning or late evening flight out of SJO. The staff is very nice and they have a reliable shuttle.
