This was the 2d place we stayed in Alajuela on our Costa Rica vacation and we were happy to find Heike & Reiner. Great little place, clean and basic, with plenty of attractive outdoor patio space and a nice neighborhood for strolling after a long car or plane ride. Reiner was kind enough to let us brew up some tea when we arrived mid-afternoon, even though the kitchen was officially closed. Heike pointed us toward a great little seafood place about 3 blocks away for dinner. The only complaint we had was that the sheets were pill-y and so made sleeping not so easy and cool. I know it's a budget place, but a linen upgrade would have made a huge difference in our comfort. The hot water in the shower is a little tricky, so be sure to get instructions before jumping in!
