Hotel Aeropuerto

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great place to stay if you come in late or have to leave early. Transportation to and from airport provided.

While needing a little updating the stay was convenient and customer friendly. Most of the staff speaks Spanish but you can get someone on the phone if necessary. The staff is terrific and so sweet. Use your navigator to find the place. Off ramps are almost non existent. Try to get there in the daylight.

The staff was wonderful. It was so easy to catch the orange cab to the hotel from the airport and back the next day! The grounds are cute and the restaurant had good food and was reasonably priced. The room was very disappointing. Stains on the lampshade and the tub. The bed was not very comfortable. If you only need a place to crash and aren't worried about anything fancy, it would be okay to stay here. But just be prepared for the rooms to be very different than the photos on the website.

Really close to the airport and on a busy highway, but surprisingly quiet. Place is attractive and other than the pool, very clean, with a good restaurant. Desk clerk has her moments, though.

There were cockroaches all over the place. In the rooms in the dinning area and the lobby.

Excellent front desk and transfer to airport. Polite and concerned and very quick to arrange room service etc. The facility is a bit old and dated but clean and organised. Definitely a place to recommend.

I arrived late at night and it is very nice that the hotel provides pick up from the airport! There are also very nice and helpful people working at this hotel.

nice room, nice swimming pool, but some light in the evenng would have mde it safer for swimming; lovely grounds; poisonous spider in my room had spun its web between chair and table -seemed very comfortably settled as non-paying guest. Shuttle was free and quite quick to airport (15 minutes including wait-time at hotel) ...restaurant gave nice breakfast -included

We enjoyed our 5 night stay. The staff were very accommodating,friendly and helpful.The room was very clean and comfortable. The complimentary breakfast every morning was great.

Convienient location close to the airport. Nice hotel, a little dated, but clean. Very nice hotel and restaurant staff. Good breakfast offered and included. Good shuttle/taxi service to the airport. Happiness I feel will depend on the hotel rate you get. This hotel is not luxury but has everything you need for a one or 2 night stay, close to the airport.

When you have an early flight out of SJO, this is the place to spend the night. Clean, simple, and they took me to the airport at 0400. It's only about 5 minutes from the airport.

We stayed at this hotel our last night in costa rica since it was close to the airport and we had early flights. It was not close to any other restaurants but the hotel restaurant was pretty good. The rooms were clean and the staff was very friendly. Great value for the money.

The hotel may be nice, I don't know. I gave them 3 stars even though we never stayed there just to be fair. We arrived at night and absolutely could not find this place even with a GPS. The location is horrible if you are driving, BEWARE! If you are using their shuttle it may be ok. By the time we gave up it was too late to cancel and ate the room for the night. we stayed at the Holiday in express next to the airport because we could find it. I hope I save you problems if you are driving.

The staff was great, good breakfast included in price. Very clean, beautiful setting that is close to the airport.

Good hotel in not so good location. Hard to access off highway if you are driving. Great if you are using shuttle service, which is nice.

Have stayed at the Hotel Aeropuerto several times now. It is a very good alternative to the overpriced skyscraper hotels adjacent to the airport. The hotel is about 10 minutes from the airport, right on the main highway. The rooms are comfortable, clean and inexpensive. There's an on-site restaurant where I had some very good Seafood Stew / Sopa Mariscos as well as the "Tipico" Costa Rican breakfast the next morning. The hotel also provides a shuttle service to the airport if required. I had a rental car and was able to check out of the hotel and return my car within about 20 minutes. The Hotel Aeropuerto has become my 1st choice when looking for a hotel close to the airport.

nice if flying out or in. Good location for flying and has bar and restaurant.

lovely secluded setting, wonderfully helpful staff, brief problem with AC but resolved, big comfortable room

Great place to stay, the taxi ride from the airport is free, and they take you to the airport for free also. It was nice when we had to be at the airport at 0400 in the morning. Good internet, and the personal speaks good English.

Hotel paid taxi for ride from and to airport. One of the closest (about 3 miles?). Free international phone calls! Clean Rooms; carpet a bit dated, but didn't matter as we stayed one night. Rooms large for the 3 of us with queen beds. Fluffy comforter and great A/C with remote. Large tub and shower. Many tv channels. Restaurant on site moderately priced and terrific Costa Rican food! Staff extremely helpful. Our only regret was having to leave before the free breakfast buffet!
