Welcome to

 Alajuela

With modern amenities, local charm and a close proximity to the international airport, Alajuela is a convenient base for sightseeing in the Central Valley. Although Costa Rica’s second largest city, Alajuela maintains a provincial atmosphere where locals relax on front porches greeting passersby, and mango season incites a lively festival city wide. Boasting a movie theater, mall, internet cafes and plenty of shopping, Alajuela has all the frills of a modern city, but moves at a gentler pace and is easier to navigate than nearby San Jose.

WELCOMING STAY: TripAdvisor Review 2020
I was greeted by the staff as soon as I pulled up in the taxi. That made me feel very welcomed. The staff is friendly. The premises are very clean, safe and in a convenient location. I have stayed here many times over the years and I highly recommend this place.

Guest Review 2018 TripAdvisor
This is a sweet little hotel in Alajuela that was our central point during our travels around Costa Rica. Updated, clean rooms, and a very accommodating staff made coming and going easy. It’s near San Jose International Airport, and there are a number of small restaurants within walking distance. Breakfast in the courtyard was the best we had in Costa Rica!
