This place is awesome! The staff are incredibly friendly and speak English very well. The room was comfortable and clean and the building is very secure. As a solo female traveler, I felt very safe. It’s perfectly located to the center of town. The best part was definitely the

Love Hotel Los Volcanes! Lovely place to stay, very central. Best service and assistance from staff in Alajuela. We had forgotten our drivers license and were headed to the Osa. Alejandro and Isable were the best. Getting us bus tickets, ordering transportation to the bus

Decent hotel close to the airport they provide a free cab ride to the airport. Staff was helpful, close to a museum(right next-door to it) not too far to walk to a park and restaurants. Young manager was helpful and quite informative help me plan the next stage of my trip

We have stayed at this hotel 5-6 time over the past few years. Despite it being a little old, we enjoyed the funky-ness, the breakfasts, and the friendly staff. We were told in September of new owners who were looking to upgrade everything and were excited about staying there

We are truly apologetic for your experience. It is not our normal. We take a lot of pride in servicing and taking care our guests well. As you stated we are in the process of doing upgrades to the hotel. It is taking some time to do the things we want to do, and we are getting there. We have all new bedding, towels, and fresh new paint and colors. Although we have not gotten to the Superior Room paint colors. That is happening in the next few weeks. In reference to the water pressure, we are here now and have brought with us new shower heads for our bathrooms. Before replacing the shower head we checked Room 2 and it seems to be functioning properly, not "dribbling", and there is hot water. The only thing I can think is that the water pressure in the city was down due to water consumption for the time of day. However, we do apologize that we could not do anything to make it better in the moment. When I received your email, I immediately contacted the front desk to inquire as to what was going on. The upgrade to the Deluxe Room was to be at no charge and my offer was for an additional 10% off on the rate you paid. Our staff must have misunderstood me. I will make an adjustment to your card. Our apologies on this obvious misunderstanding between myself and our staff. Furthermore, in talking to the staff about the situation, I do not think it was their intention to "blame" you, our guest, for the situation. They were trying very hard to figure out the issue in the moment. What is strange is that the very next day we were in the room you were moved to and we had very hot water and a strong stream. In fact, had to turn the hot down. I do not have any idea what the issue was last night. Again, our apologies and we hope you would reconsider us in the future.
