“Fantastic place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2011

Cannot say enough great things about the proprietor of this establishment...Gus I think is his name. Extremely kind and friendly, speaks perfect English. Our flight was arriving late at night so our plan was to get a hotel close to the airport. Alajuela seemed nice, and since we'd be leaving first thing we opted for the cheapest place we could find, which was Alajuela Backpackers. But they got our reservation screwed up and gave away our room. Our cab driver (we were supposed to have a car rental, but that got screwed up by our late arrival too) took us here and we couldn't have been happier--room was great, breakfast was amazing, and when we told Gus our story he immediately got on the phone and got us a car--a good one too, at a good price, from a rental place just a few blocks away. Though we didn't plan to spend any time there, we actually found Alajuela kind of charming. Highly recommend the Hotel Catedral!

We stayed at Casa Cornejo on three different occasions during our trip in Costa Rica. The hotel is centrally located in the heart of Alajuela, only 10 min away from the airport.

The hotel have only been opened since November 2010, but the place is great! The hotel is a family run business, and the owner and his family go to great lengths to make sure you have a great stay. They are very helpful with whatever you need, and are always friendly and welcoming.

The rooms are recently renovated, have a high standard, and are nice and clean. The breakfast which is included is very satisfying.

We would definitely stay here again, and would recommend this hotel to all our friends.

We were looking for a hotel close to the airport when we came upon the Hotel Catedral Casa Cornejo. The hotel is an entirely new building built on a corner of the city central replacing the 3 generation family home. The hotel is owned and managed by the same family. We were so pleased with the room, although a bit small on the first floor, it had
all the amenities of a first class American Hotel, even a hair dryer and wash cloths!
Everything was clean, beautifully decorated and very quite even though it is on a main street. Breakfast is included in the reasonable price and is served in the lovely dining area. The staff is English speaking and very eager to make your stay the best. We were only about 5 minutes by taxi to the airport but felt like we were still exploring wonderful Costa Rica the night before we left.
