The lobby and exterior of the hotel was cozy. The lady greeting us also offered us tea or coffee upon arrival which was very nice. Note that the receptionist(s) were not very fluent in English and it was at times difficult to communicate with. The room itself was very dark and did not have a very secure feeling to it.... More

Stayed a week in this lovely place July 2016 for a mission trip with Give-A-Book. The exterior looks a little bit rough, but once inside, it's glorious! I can't speak to the price/value, because the charity negotiated the room price and we didn't pay directly. There was no a/c, but we didn't really need it. The evenings were cool enough.... More

A lovely hotel as described by other travelers and photos. My only complaint with this hotel is their lack of honesty around the price. Pay up front and pay in cash. First claimed credit card machine was not working, then charged me an additional 13% to pay with my card...ended up being a much more expensive night than had planned!

Every year our mission team spends our last night before going home here. The people are awesome, place is clean, breakfast is tasty, and did I mention how friendly the people are. Definite hidden treasure behind the beautiful doors.

1915 Hotel was a nice surprise, the nicest hotel I have ever stayed in, so charming and clean and luxurious. Our room was on the second floor with a very nice large balcony/patio. The king bed was heavenly. The historic Spanish colonial style was comfortable. And very affordable. Very close to city centre. I would book again!

This is a reasonable place to crash from a long journey into San Juan. Main pluses were secure parking if you have hired a car, very close to airport ( a couple of kilometres). Price was ok. $75 for the night. I had to pay cash on arrival and they had no change. Room is ok. Air conditioning left something... More

Our first-ever stay in Costa Rica started at Hotel 1915. (We had chosen to stay in Alajuela instead of San José because it was both very close to the Juan Santamaría International Airport and an excellent base for excursions in the natural sites of the Central Valley.) The rooms had everything we could think of to satisfy our basic needs.... More

We have stayed here twice during our trip to Costa Rica due to the hotel's great location near the international airport (10 minutes by car). The hotel doesn't look very special from the outside but from the inside you see a beautiful old building with ancient furnishings. The rooms are nice and clean (though we had a cockroach in our...
