This hotel is beautiful, it is like an art museum and all the paintings are done by local artists. The only fall back is the hard beds, the rooms themselves are very nice. the breakfast was wonderful and all the help very friendly and professional. we would definitely come back again.

A very nice hotel. Walked in and pleasantly surprised with the decor, very unique, eccentric, super cool. The 2 women running reception were fabulous, so so friendly. Also spoke very good English which was helpful for us The gentlemen who assisted with our bags was also so friendly; just a genuine nice guy. Super tiny bar with like 6 seats. 2 young local professional guys were hanging at the bar having food and beers, good sign. Our group was admittedly a pain in the butt but the employees took great care of us. Bathroom amenities smelled great.
No pool. Restaurant next door was fine, pricey. Not much in the area but s great place to stay in Alajuela for a night or 2, not far from airport. Breakfast included.

Can't say enough about the excellence of this place. It seriously reminds me of an art gallery and boutique all meshed into a hotel with amazingly attentive staff who go out of their way to please. Our stay was a very brief two nights with late arrivals and early departures due to tours. They allowed us to use their kitchen facilities to prepare some market bought produce, provided cereal and fruit for us because we couldn't make the hours of their breakfast in the morning, and scrambled to find us "to go" cups for our coffee (along with a staff member having a fresh pot of coffee made for us by 5:30 a.m.!) so we could take some with us in our van. Wow! They literally left no stone unturned to make our stay as convenient and comfortable as possible. I can't believe the price for this unique place. Five star experience at rock bottom prices. The area around the hotel is, well, San Jose. It's not a nice city anywhere from our experience. That being said, we walked around the afternoon/evening of our arrival and checked out the typical local culture of a downtown area. Typical. Same experience at 2 other San Jose hotels we stayed at in the past. Book this place and enjoy your time there. Plan to walk around a bit and see how those in San Jose get around. Crazy!

Wow, what am eclectic place this is! From the street, it appears to have Spanish-inspired architecture and no one would be the wiser on what adventurous furnishings await you inside. Immediately at the entrance you will know this place is unique, as wild paintings and sculptures greet you at the quaint main lobby. I found from the contractor who built the place, that the hotel is actually made up of 8 different houses, and is the reason for it's very wild interior. It's a beautiful place with amazing rooms and definitely loads of conversation starters in nearly every centimeter of this hotel. Highly recommended!

This is a really nice place. Like a bed and breakfast with great charm. Clean, large rooms, fridge. Very friendly staff. But, hard to find in a rental car without GPS. Finally, a young couple who spoke English showed us the Maps.me app that did not need an internet connection. You download a Costa Rica map, and we are there. Extremely good value. Hot breakfast was very good. Extremely pleasant server/cook. As good a value as you will get.
