My wife and I stayed here only one night, but left impressed. Very clean, simple and well-maintained. Staff had excellent recommendations for dinner within walking distance from the hotel and called a cab at 4AM for our flight. After seeing Alajuela, I wished we stayed longer; the town seems lively, interesting and safe. We will definitely stay here again when... More

My family stayed here the first and last nights of our two week trip in Costa Rica. It was a nice place to stay before and after long travel days. The breakfast was great. The staff was very friendly and provided assistance with restaurants and taxis when requested. The rooms were clean and there was plenty of hot water.

We stayed for 3 days at end of April at this clean, convenient, reasonably-priced, downtown Alajuela Hotel after a 10 day tour; had a chance to unwind, and see more of the real Costa Rica than can see on a tour.

Hotel Casa Tago is a great little place to stay. The simple but clean rooms are perfect for a stay after a late flight to Alajuela.
