“Great place to stay in San Isidro”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

I stayed here on the recommendation of a friend, and I'm glad I did. I chose a private room with shared bathrooms. The room, bathrooms, and whole hotel are all very clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. I will pop in here again if my travels take me through San Isidro!

Recently in Perez Zeledon on business, I chose this hotel because of it's excellent location (faces the Parque Central) and Gated Parking with Security Cameras. The entrance is a little hidden and reception is down a hall, behind window barrier. I was offered my choice of two rooms--one small, clean and neat with a fan, the other larger with A/C and three beds--but kind of weird back corridor location..so I chose the smaller room just off the lobby.. The fan was enough to make the room comfortable and I slept well. The Staff was very accommodating and offered to give me a coupon for my breakfast at a nearby restaurant. The Hotel Chirripo Restaurant is going through a complete remodel and will be out of commission for a period of time. This wasn't convenient, but I enjoyed exploring the downtown area for a breakfast alternative. See Kafe de la Casa. If you want basic, inexpensive accommodations in the middle of town, this is the place!

Room Tip: I asked to see the different room types and was promptly and enthusiastically given a tour of the av...

Right on the central parque, Hotel Chirripo has freiendly and helpful staff, bright and spotless rooms, with large bathrooms, some with balconies. Sheets are pure white cotton, crisply ironed, pillows are soft. I only wished that the town was more intersting, so that I could have stayed longer.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter, but those at the front have balconies, and the street noise quietens...

Slept here 1 night. The hotel is located in the (not so pretty) center of San Isidro, very close to the bus station.

I took the renovated room without airco and with private bath. The room was really nice and clean. It was very welcome after spend some days in shared bathrooms and dorms.

The people were very nice and spoke english very well.

Room Tip: I stayed in the renovated room with private bath and fan, which was very nice.

We met a young man on the bus from SJO, he asked where we were staying. We said we didnt really know but heard Hotel Chirripo was good. When we got off the bus we were swarmed by taxi drivers. This young fellow yelled to follow him. His dad was waiting for him They gave us a ride right to the door of Hotel Chirripo. Great place, clean, quiet, very friendly very comfortable. The restraunt was closedfor renovations but the keeper recommended a great bar just up the street. In the morning he gave us vouchers for a perfect soda next door and had a real Costa Rican breakfast. The keeper also had lined up a taxi for us to go to San Gerardo. Would def stay there again. nice area to walk around too.

Room Tip: if you are coming by musoc bus. This hotel is not that far, only a few blocks. Its right beside the...

Great location, Great Price, and Great People at the desk....

Located "on the square" you are in the center of what action may be happening....

Traveling Solo, I paid $16 USD for a single room with a shared bath... While very basic, it was extremely clean. A fan and a TV in the room was a nice touch. The fan was necessary.

Shower and Toilet right across the hall......quick dash naked and nobody knows!!

Best part were the people at the Desk......Warner and Michael were always helpful with plenty of suggestions.

The restaurant in front is under renovation, so I can't comment on that......

But a great Soda a few blocks away is Soda Molina......Located on the outside of the Mercado adjoining the Central Bus Station...

If I'm back in San Isidro, I'll be back at the Hotel Chirripo...

Room Tip: 46 was fine!!

Hotel Chirripo is a comfortable hotel, with simple but clean rooms. We chose a double room with shared bathroom (US$ 35 per night), which means using one of several toilet and/or shower cubicles situated along the corridor. We found all of these well-kept and clean too. Our room had a ventilator fan, which helped to drive of the somewhat hot air in the room.
The hotel lies on the central square, a lovely green park with a bandstand. San isidro is quiet at night and we were not disturbed by any noise or traffic while asleep. The hotel lies conveniently close to the various bus stations in the city (we toured Costa Rica by public bus) and an ideal overnight stop on the long journey from e.g. San José to Puerto Jimenez or vice versa. The staff is very helpfull, especially Michael at the reception.
