Just five minutes from the Juan Santamaria international airport, (SJO) which is both good and bad. Great for the convenience of getting to and from the airport. Not so great that it's under the flight path. Definitely ask for a room away from the street. Even at that, it's very noisy with truck traffic all day and night. Even shakes the building. Being such a light sleeper, I thought I wasn't going to get a bit of sleep, but surprisingly, I got a great night of sleep and woke rested and ready to start my day.
The owner, Henry, apparently designed and decorated the hotel, and did a beautiful job of it. Tons of personal touches, made of local hardwoods, I believe. Everywhere you look, you'll find evidence of his love for the place.
There is a nice restaurant on the property, with outdoor seating around the pool. You can choose to sit at a table or recline on the beautiful benches, rugs and pillows.
Henry obviously takes pride in his hotel/restaurant and is wonderful to talk with.
Yes, this is a budget hotel, but it's way more than that. If you're on a budget and want to stay near the airport, this would be the place.
