“Nice budget hotel”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

People at the front desk are very helpful. 5 minutes walk from the city center. Clean basic room, bed could be better. Included breakfast is basic but still good. Very quiet place. Wi-Fi available. I recommend this hotel for budget travelers.

This is a very basic, no frills lodge. The location is ok, the staff are fairly absent and don't really want to do too much for you and the rooms are very very basic. Basically a bed, a small table and 2 chairs and a tv from the dark ages. We had cold showers although they say they have hot showers, breakfast was really basic and the internet/wifi connection is quite awful. We passed far nicer places once we'd had a chance to walk around.

Hola Burgie20, thank you very much for taking time a write a review for Hotel Cipreses, we´re very sorry that this has not been a luxury hotel as you wish, we can guarantee to our special guests the hot water is working properly, if a guest has a problem with the hot water our staff can fix it immediately many times some people not take the time to let us know and explain if we should, we are a hotel of standard category and we not pretend to be more than that, where cleaning, breakfast and service are our strengths, this can be seen in 99% of previous comments, We invite our future guests to come and enjoy a nice hotel with no luxuries of a five star hotel but in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We do not offer something to our guest that they will not receive, that would be a lie and trick our guests that are the most important people and what we should care.

The people their are great!
Yorling is an angel - he helped us in anything we needed.
the room was nice and clean but we had two minor problems
there's a dog that belongs to the flat near by who barked all night
there were insects on one of the beds - so we scratched our selves through out the first night
But still -we loved it :)

Room Tip: second floor has a better view

My wife and I didnt get much sleep when we stayed here. The people were very nice but the room had very thin walls and only luke warm water. We could hear the wind howling, the neighbors dogs barking all night, the next room's tv and the cars as they passed by. We would not stay here again.

Did a double take on the area as the shuttle dropped us off, but my wife and I soon forgot about our misgivings due to the clean rooms and helpful staff. The price is very attractive and the breakfast typical and tasty tico. The barking dogs are bothersome, but seem to quit by bedtime when we stayed in April of 2014.

Room Tip: Away from back fence where dogs seem to be

Reasonable priced and very helpful staff. We were in the family room. It slept five without issue. Hot water is a challenge. Breakfast was great and and any negatives were over shadowed by the fact that the big tree behind the hotel is home to a giant sloth.

I was traveling alone. Sayed one night. Grounds are well kept and pretty. Room was very nice and comfortable. Staff was pleasant and I was greated with a beautiful, refresing juice drink on arrival. Hotel is located in center of commuinty houses. Walk to town is 10min there and 40min back due to hill. The only complaint which is not in their control, is the amount of pack dogs in area and the barking all night.
Very close to Moteverde Park and great zip lining.
I Would stay again.
