We stayed at Mi Tierra the first and the last night in Costa Rica, is has a very convenient location near airport (6-7$ for a taxi). It's within walking distance to local super, shopping area and a park, which is useful if you need to kill a few hours in Alajuela.
The hotel itself is very clean and the breakfast was delicious (local fruit, coffee, eggs, toast). Our children enjoyed the little pool while I enjoyed watching birds perching on the trees on the patio. They have a mango tree and one other fruit tree I failed to identify, which attract a lot of birds, including parrots.
Ivannia has been very helpful, on my asking she had dinner waiting for us the night we came (we flew in late, with two children) and she also helped us dealing with car rental company, saving us an unpleasant trip to San Jose. She recommended an excellent nearby soda (El Banco), thank you, Ivannia for all your help!
Overall, the hotel feels like a safe base in Alajuela.
