Hotel Interamericano
Ranked #8 of 12 Hotels in Turrialba
Reviewed 2 March 2017

The outside of the building is rather ugly, like a big warehouse, and faces a large covered-in section of roadway where there is sometimes a market. Beggars frequent it by day and homeless people sleep there at night. It's a pretty depressing area and on market days can be very noisy,

The inside is a lot nicer. All of the accommodation is now at first floor level, with just the reception desk downstairs, and the woman who runs it (a former New Yorker) is pleasant and helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable and have good storage space and a few surfaces to put things down. The Wi-Fi was very good in the room in which we stayed. The kitchen is clean and well appointed. We thought that it was good value for what we paid, very central despite the grottiness of the surroundings, but nothing out of the ordinary. It suited our needs for a chilling-out stop between visits to the various National Parks. Turrialba in the dry season doesn't have a great deal to offer.

Room Tip: Try to get a room that doesn't face the market area

We were here with our family before an early rafting trip. We had a Family room incl private bathroom. This place hasn't been invested in in 20 yrs or so. We were here on Saturday night, we had disco in our room until 02.00 hrs.... The musquito nets have big, big holes. And it was quite hot... We had Roomnr 13. It was the seize of a cupboard with 4 people and 3 travelbags.

Positive: The USA lady of the house was very friendly and very helpful, compliments!

Even if there's a suspicious park in front of it (meaning, with strange people at night), the hotel is quite central and rather close to some restaurants and clubs with nightlife. Besides, the staff was very friendly and all the rooms and spaces were clean. The only annoying point was not having the bathroom inside our bedroom and the fact that the wi-fi signal was very weak there.

Stayed for two nights, hotel was quiet...indoors anyway. There was various noise coming from outside but I'm not unused to sleeping with earplugs so no major drama for me!
Centrally located in the town. Room and toilet/shower facilities were clean, hosts and staff were friendly and accommodating. Parking out the front for couple of cars, secure premises. No fan or aircon but didn't need it in June.
Overall good stay for a budget hotel.

We had read about how Turrialba had become a backwater town since the new road bypassed it and it's true. Unfortunately this hotel had the feeling of being a victim of the times. The building is shabby from the outside but you can see that it would have once been a grand place.
The room was clean enough but the halls were echoey and very loud, lots of school children shouting and banging doors. Everything looked very tired and sad.
The area immediately around the hotel was also not too salubrious and you were left with an overall feeling of being less than safe. We left on the first bus the next morning.

Stayed: December 2014, travelled as a couple
