Tempted to stay in San Jose to prepare for our flight home, we are so glad that Buena Vista Hotel was recommended to us. It is like coming home to family. The hotel staff is incredible and if going to the airport, it is much closer than staying in San Jose. Furthermore, the view (it is located in Alajuela which sits above San Jose) is breathtaking. Overall, this is the place to land for an inexpensive, comfy hotel that knows how to make you feel at home. The hotel is small, so really get to know other guests. This along with a great, easy, free way to get to airport (they have a shuttle that gets you there in less than 20 or so minutes), makes it a easy decision.Don't leave there until you've seen the Volcano Poas and La Paz Gardems (very close by). Can't say enough good thing about it and the staff, David, Coco and Harlem seal the deal. Conversations with them about life in Costa Rica and the overall culture are enough to book the visit!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The comment ofter heard in this hotel is, "We feel like we are at home." This is exactly the impression the management and staff of the Buena Vista strive to create. We are high on the summit of a mountain with a climate of eternal spring yet only fifteen minutes drive from the International Airport below. We will pick you up there and show you the wonders of this exotic country. ... more less
