We stayed at this hotel for a few nights and had a lovely time. The room was comfortable and great value for money. Cecilia and Jose-Manuel were extremely welcoming and friendly and gave us good advice on where to go around Alajuela. Nice breakfast. We'd definitely go back.

I made a reservation on line and thought that we would get a room with a double bed. Instead the room had two single beds and was cramped and uncomfortable. The shared bathroom was very small and cramped. The complementary breakfast was nice though. This hotel is adequate for one night. On our last night in Costa Rica we stayed... More

My wife and I stayed twice in this hotel (two different nights). Located a couple of blocks from the center, and 10 minutes drive from the airport. A very pleasant, clean hotel, with comfortably sized rooms. The breakfast is basic but very tasty, and served in a very nice patio. The staff is helpful and friendly, offers good advice on... More

We just stayed in Hotel Pacande for one night before flying out to Tortuguero, and we wanted somewhere cheap and cheerful. They were friendly and helpful, and sorted out our taxi for the next morning and pointed us in the direction of somewhere to eat that night. The room was at the back of the Hotel, looking out onto the... More

If you need a place nearby the airport, I suggest to go to Alajuela, which is closer than San Jose and nicer. Hotel Pacande is a safe B&B with a great staff. Friendly people with good advises. It's clean, the breakfast is good, 40 US Dollars is bit overpriced but at the end we had a good stay. There is... More

We were charmed by the excellent and friendly service provided by the manager of this hotel. We were always greeted by name and the management was very helpful with information on the surrounding area. We stayed for 2 nights in a private twin room with shared bathroom. The room was clean but well appointed for a budget hotel with comfortable... More

Good price and spacious room. $40 incl. uninteresting cont. breakfast. Hosts tended to ignore us, almost to the point of being unfriendly which surprised us because the LP guidebook made a point of commenting otherwise. Room airy and breezy but had sewage odor intermittently. We were on 2nd floor. We did not smell it anywhere else.. Lots of road noise... More

We stayed at Hotel Pacandé both when we arrived at SJO & on our way back out, and found the rooms to be comfortable and clean and the staff to be very friendly and welcoming.
