Hotel Los Volcanes B&B

This is a great place to stay if you upgrade the room. Originally we got a standard room through our tour package, the room was small and the bathroom was dingy. I asked for a upgrade ($15 more) and it made a world of difference. The superior room was beautiful, spacious, very comfortable, tucked in the back so it was quiet. Definitely worth the upgrade.

Eduardo at the front desk was super nice and friendly and very helpful. He gave excellent service. The breakfast is delicious and has a lot of variety. There's a little town you can walk around, it looks kind of run down but it felt safe to walk around at night. We ate at a great Mexican restaurant called Jalepenos that Eduardo recommended. The taxi ride to the airport was included, about 5-10 mins.

We always stay there when in and out of Costa Rica. Close to airport and always recommend to our friends. The staff is great. Rooms clean and reasonbable. Delicious breakfast included with accomodations.
Also, wi fi and full selection of tv chanels. Most accomodating with any travelers needs... they can arrange for tours or whatever the travelers needs are.
We've been staying there for over ten years, and each year everything is improved....not much more room for improvement....already numero uno....and beyond.

Room Tip: we have stayed in sevearl rooms there over the years, depending on availability and occupancy. We li...

Hotel Los Volcanes is a great little hotel when you're on a budget. Very close to the airport, great service & really, really friendly staff.
Breakfast was really tasty & they were very generous with the options!

I have booked to stay again on my way back out of San Jose - highly recommended!

Located just a short ($6) taxi ride from the airport this hotel is located in a pleasant and safe neighborhood in Alajuela. This is a small, family run hotel with clean rooms, great service and an urban Costa Rican vibe. Good breakfasts, free taxis to the airport for departures.

This hotel is perfectly located for excursions to San Jose and area attractions - including Poas Volcano, the zoo, coffee farms, etc. The staff has many ideas and is very helpful with directions and arrangements.

I travel several times a year to Costa Rica on business and this is where I start and end my trips. I have stayed here on different occasions as an individual traveler, with my family and as part of a large student group (16+). They have always been welcoming and accommodating.

It's a nice place to stay, the breakfast is good, people there are very nice and helpful. Also it isn't expensive and very close from the airport if you have to take a flight in the morning.I definitly recomand this place for a short stay. Even the room without bathroom are very clean and not too noisy.

I was traveling alone at the end of my trip, and as I didn't want to get lost around Alajuela all by myself, I stayed in the room for the majority of the day and was very comfortable! The staff is wonderful and the rooms and hotel are beautiful. Breakfast was delicious and the free shuttle to the airport made the end of my trip go even smoother. I will be staying here again the next time I am in Costa Rica!

My mom and I stayed here when we began our trip in Costa Rica. It costs about $6.50 to get there from the airport. The Taxi to the airport is free at the end of the trip! They have breakfast included every morning which is delicious! You get coffee, juice, fruit, eggs, bacon, etc etc. It's in the heart of Alajuela with access to banks, stores, beautiful scenery and more. Clean comfortable rooms and spacious bathrooms. It is definitely worth a stay. Beware, If you come during rainy season don't slip on the tiles! They become as slippery as ice.

Room Tip: Room 7 and 8 are big rooms and located across the courtyard from the rest of the rooms.
