Arrived late from the airport, staying across the street, but walked over for dinner.
I think we had the lomito and the churrasco. Medium rare. Simple yet superb presentation of perfectly grilled delicious Costa Rican beef.
Service was extremely swift and professional (there was only one other table seated, but it was quite late, around 9:30pm). Great price.
Can't wait to do it again...

We only stayed one night on our way from Nicaragua to other destinations in Costa Rica but this was a good place for a stopover. It's a very convenient location with restaurants, banks, shops and a good grocery store across the road. There's also American fast food (McDonalds, Burger King, Papa Johns, Subway) within a couple minutes walk. Our room was very clean - small but just fine for the night. We had a room towards the back of the property and had absolutely no problem with noise from the street. The pool was clean, wifi worked well and there were lots of TV channels. Dinner and breakfast at the hotel were very good and reasonably priced. Many locals eating there which is always a positive sign. We would stay here again if passing through Liberia.

Room Tip: choose a room towards the back of hotel to avoid noise from street

We made this hotel in Liberia our “headquarters” for a few days, going out from Liberia to see several parks in this part of the country. The staff was friendly and helpful and the place was clean. The complaints some made about the rooms or pool not being clean seemed totally unjustified during the time we were there. The restaurant was convenient and had good food. Someone commented about the showers, but almost every place we stayed in Costa Rica was the same way, with the water oscillating back and forth between “too warm” and “too cool” as it passed its way through “just right”. The hotel was convenient to banks and supermarkets (and fast food places). It is located on a busy street and so is not in a scenic locality, but we went elsewhere on day trips for the scenery.

As others have mentioned, El Bramadero is a convenient hotel for a stopover in Liberia. A $20 cab ride from LIR (as of Dec 2011). Free wifi, cute little pool. Easy to walk to downtown Liberia or to the bus station for travel to Nicaragua and elsewhere. Be aware that there is road noise, especially in the very early morning; not surprising since the hotel is right on the PanAmerican.

I needed a place to stay for one night in Liberia before travelling on to the coast and El Bramadero was a perfect choice. I was able to walk (with my large suitcase) less than a block from the Tica Bus stop; I was also within a block of a large, well-stocked supermarket, ATM and several restaurants, including the one at the hotel.
The rooms were pleasant enough - clean and comfortable (with WiFi) - all at a very reasonable price. Overall, a great place to stop for the night if you're travelling through Liberia!

This place is very convenient to the bus station. It has shopping and restaurants close by, directly across the street is a market. The staff and owners were really friendly and helpful. The rooms were pretty basic but clean and served the purpose. Met some Americans who were living in Nicaragua who were there for 3 days doing a visa run and they said this place was pretty consistent. Not a luxury hotel but basic and clean and perfectly fine for a night or two.

We were stranded in Liberia for 2 days when our flight home was cancelled. They couldn't have been more helpful. They gave us a large comfortable room for all our stuff, provided us with a computer to contact our family in Canada (the daughter of the owner actually brought us down her own personal lap top and told us to use it free of charge to do our necessary business), suggested places to visit in Liberia while we were there, called taxi service for us, helped with luggage and checked in on us several times each day to make sure we didn't need anything. The pool was a good size and spotless during our stay. There is a very decent restaurant on the premises with competitive prices. While staying there, which can be a little noisy in the day with the traffic - the only drawback- we discovered a mall across the road with a large supermarket, several other restaurants, banks, internet cafe, and an ice cream parlour. The bus station is also an easy 4 block walk away. It all worked out perfectly and we have good memories of our time in Liberia. Thank you Bramadero,

Room Tip: Room 02 - close to the pool, restaurant.
