This hotel was a great place to stay after our flight into Costa Rica. We arrived pretty late, around 11pm, and someone was there to check us in. He was very friendly. The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable, and the shower had hot water. Our room didn't have any windows to the outside but, that was fine because we just needed a place to sleep before a shuttle picked us up at 9am. The breakfast was great: fruit, coffee, eggs, juice, and toast. There is a nice pool in the back but we didn't use it. Even though the hotel is close to a busy street, our room was quiet. The hotel is 5 minutes from the airport and the cab fare was just a few dollars. We felt completely safe in the hotel. I would definitely stay again.
As soon as I arrived, the hospitality was obvious. Both ladies were asking what they could do to make my stay better. This hotel might be rated 3.5 starts, but the staff turn it into 5 stars. The location is also optimal near to the airport making it an excellent starting and finishing hotel. That morning I had a 06:35 flight and they arranged a cab the night before ($5 USD) at 04:45. It was a smooth process and the cab showed up on time. The hotel staff even brewed a cup of coffee while I was waiting for the cab. The staff is also very proficient in English which makes up for my non-existent Spanish. Rooms were small, basic, but clean.
A great stay! Only a few minutes from the airport with a gate for safety features that helps ease the mind of anyone getting in! Staff is great and helps accommodate to the best of their abilities! My group arrived at the hotel very late at night after a long plane ride, there was no restaurants or cafes open in the area. The staff had drinks, coffee, and tea available and even offered to make a plate of fruit for us! I came with a group of 6 people and had reserved a car for 500 USD. When we arrived at the car rental company, the company tried to charge us 2,700 USD for the car. We were left without a car for our 10 day trip, however the staff got into contact with a local rental car company and was able to get us an upgraded car for less than half the price. My stay was great! Wonderful staff! Would recommend to anyone!…
The hotel is located just a few blocks from SJO airport. It is close to different restaurants and bars, and they will recommend the best eating close by too. Had the opportunity to meet the owner (a very nice lady) who recommended an excellent restaurant to have dinner close by... Follow their recommendations! The hotel is very cozy. The room was super clean and the decoration was great. The breakfast was excellent! Will definitely use it every time I need to travel from SJO from now on.
We stayed 2 nights at berlor. No frills hotel. Very clean, well maintained, quiet & safe. Staff extremely helpful and courteous. No safe for valuables. Tv has numerous English speaking channels. Highly recommended.
