We picked this hotel because it was close to the airport and were not expecting much for the price. We were pleasantly surprised. It has recently been renovated...the rooms were small but nicely decorated & very clean with A/C.. We thought it was going to be noisy given it's location smack dad in the middle of downtown Alajuela but it was surprisingly quiet (we did have a room more towards the back so perhaps the front rooms may not be as quiet). The staff is the "shining star" here though. They all went out of their way to make our short stay a pleasant one, giving suggestions of where to eat & sights to see. Our flight was an early one and we were leaving before the scheduled included breakfast but they made sure we at least got coffee, juice & toast before we left. They also arranged a shuttle to the airport for a small charge and it was right on time. Great value for the price!
