Charly's Place Hotel
Ranked #50 of 65 Alajuela B&B and Inns
Reviewed 18 September 2012

We were looking for a low budget place to sleep and at Charly's we found a average (small) room with no window to the street for a fair price. The owner is very helpful and friendly. The breakfast in the nice garden was good, WIFI in the room. All together a good first night in Costa Rica.

Stayed at Charly's Place in late July 2012. It was low season so we managed to bargain a huge room (actually 2 rooms that were adjoined) with cable TV and hot water private bath for $30!! The floors looked like they hadn't been mopped in a lonnnng time (I confirmed that by wetting the bathmat and wiping the floors down myself, it was pretty dirty!) but the beds were clean. We had a room set back from the main street and it was very quiet considering the traffic noise level in Alajuela. Only issue was with the hot water--the shower head power supply was not turned on so we had trouble getting hot water the first night. We spoke to the front desk and they came in and turned it on - problem solved. Also, just to be aware that parking is not included but there is a short guarded parking lot about 3 minute walk away which will let hotel guests park for $4 until 7 AM the next day. Additional parking is very cheap...like a dollar per hour or so. Breakfast was included and consisted of toast, guava jelly, butter, OJ, coffee and fruits. Staff is extremely friendly and welcoming. Location was ideal...along a stretch of other hotels which are all close to the main streets/parkettes. There is an excellent restaurant (Monteleone's) literally across the street that serves great food, specializing in steak. For $30/night..can't really be beat!

We were looking for a place that had hot water, a double bed and free breakfast - Charlys fit!

We had a great room facing the garden for $35UDS a night - we stayed for 3!

The breakfast was contental but there was heaps of fresh fruit - including some of the best papaya I have ever had!

The staff are nice and Charly is too.

The place is older but it has a certain charm which we liked and we enjoyed our stay.

My cab driver claimed she could not find the hotel I suggested and said it was in another town entirely (which ended up being false). She took me to Charly's Place, saying it would be $30 a night. He tried to charge me $40, and the rooms were pretty nasty. I know I should have left but I was on the last night of a two-week trip and flew out early the next morning. He and his staff are nice enough people, but I don't like the element of dishonesty that pervades the place.
