Alegria Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #8 of 63 Alajuela B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 20, 2012

We spent our last night in Costa Rica here and we couldn't have picked a better place. It is close to the SJO airport and a beautiful big clean house. George is a wonderful and gracious host who made us feel very welcome and was helpful in every way. And he prepared a delicious breakfast for all the guests the next morning. The other guests staying there were also very friendly. So we really enjoyed a nice relaxing day before our long flight back home.

Allegria is a wonderful bed and breakfast and a great place to stay as you start or end your adventure in Costa Rica. It is only a 10-20 minute ride from the airport, depending on the traffic. This B&B is like being at home and is only a short walk (1 mile) from the center of Alajuela. The owner is very nice and gives you great tips on your visit to CR. He also makes a great breakfast. I will definitely stay here again on our next trip to CR.

We stayed at Alegria several times during our holiday in Costa Rica and really loved it. It's a beautiful house and George is a very friendly and accommodating host. The breakfast is fabulous and the beds are really comfy. George also helped us out with our car rental and gave us suggestions of where to eat and places to see. You can't go wrong staying here!

George is an amazing man, makes you feel at home with his excellent hospitality. It ended up feeling like our second home as we came back several times from small trips across the country. Excellent. Make sure you spend a night if you are saying in Alajuela. A 10 minute drive from the airport as well.

We stayed here for three nights and I would absolutely recommend this B&B run by George. The room was lovely - clean and comfortable. George's breakfast was just delicious - I can also endorse the banana bread.
It is located a short walk from the centre of town or a cheap taxi. He was a very friendly host and made us feel right at home, even letting us come along to a family trip to the beach which was just so generous.

Pretty much has become my home in San Jose away from home. George's place is in a residential neighborhood, about a 2 min drive from downtown Alajuela. You can actually walk from downtown Alajuela to George's or you can can a cab for about $3-$4. I paid $6 for a cab from George's to the airport.

What I like about Alegria is that its close to Alajuela downtown (I have never been to downtown San Jose) but far enough so you don't hear the noise of the city. It is very quiet at night at George's and I'm a light sleeper.

George pretty much has the city dialed in...knows where to get the best of everything. His recommendations have never let me down. George I need this: BOOM , George hooks it up. Just...makes your life easier. Like I said, it's pretty much my home away from home. I've stayed here three times and staying here has made my life easier....

Pretty much a very solid stay at George's if you are coming or leaving San Jose.

Make your life easy and connect w/ George...........

Alegria is a cozy surprise in the outskirts of the dreaded San Jose and the hustle of Alajuala. The house and host are as cute as a bugs ear. You can kick your feet up and hang out on the sidewalk patio. After months of traveling Costa Rica I found the environment and energy created at Alegria quite special. A home getting you ready for home. Thanks for the stay.
