We were here only overnight between flights. The reception guy was friendly and helpful. They had icy cold water in the lobby - big plus! Grounds were great for walking around after a long day of travel. The attached restaurant was very reasonably priced but little used. The airport transportation wasn't so good. They had asked for our arrival information, which I provided. And indeed, there was someone there from CTT holding a sign. But then we waited for almost an hour before he finally got us on a van - then found out we were expected to pay for it! The morning transportation only comes (or so we were told) every hour and the time didn't work for us so we took a cab that was only about $7. Very pleasant place for the price, but don't count on it for a shuttle.

An unfortunate accident led to us looking for accommodation that was wheelchair accessible. After almost a week confined to a city centre hotel, this place was a lifesaver for us. A previous poster described entering the grounds of Hotel Aeropuerto as like an oasis in the middle of a more commercial area, and that it was. There was road noise from the nearby highway, but it was rarely intrusive. Similarly the nearby airport was not a problem.
Our room was very spacious, clean and had sliding windows that looked onto a small, quiet area of the garden. There was air conditioning,

As travelers, we are used to non-descript, bland chain hotels. This was a delightful surprise. We knew from research that the airport shuttle is via taxi. We took a bus that dropped us off behind the San Jose airport, right where the taxi yard was located. We approached them and requested a shuttle to the hotel and they knew the drill. The driver dropped us off then went to the front desk to collect his fare. The lobby is amazing. All open air, overhead fans, lots of wicker and old wood. We got our keys, and checked out our room, which was just fine, clean and comfortable, not fancy. It was mid- afternoon and hot, so we went down to use the outdoor pool, and discovered, to our delight, that it was in the middle of a mango Grove. Beautiful, ripe mangos were everywhere - on the trees, on the ground, in the pool. We took one back to our room and it was the most delicious, sweet mango! We went for dinner in the restaurant, and to our surprise were the only ones there! Dinner was good and reasonable. The shuttle next morning was on time. Many people were waiting for the shuttle, which was a surprise, as it was the first time we had seen other people! Unique, beautiful, fun and efficient.

First of all, we got to the hotel and we noticed that our room stunk so badly. There was black mold on the bathroom wall in the shower. We went to sleep and turn on the air conditioner and the AC unit made a SUPER loud noise that sounded like crickets chirping. It was ungodly loud so we had to sleep with our heads in between two pillows. Lastly, we had transportation to the airport which they claimed was free (says on the website) but we were charged $12 by the taxi driver. There was no one at the desk so we couldnt voice our concerns. If you want a hotel by the airport, just pay a little extra next time and stay at the Courtyard Marriot.

We stayed at Hotel Aeropuerto for a night after a 10pm landing at the airport from a long journey. This hotel is the perfect place to crash in San José for a night.

Clean, friendly staff and a tasty breakfast, it’s everything you need after a long day’s travel. Great value for money.

On arrival at the airport, our hotel shuttle was waiting for us and was easy to find. The airport is about a 10 minute drive (if that) from the airport, which is so handy after a long day.

The hotel is well-served by all major shuttles, so ours picked us up to take us to La Fortuna the next morning without any problems. Would recommend!

As out flight was landing late in the evening, we chose to spend our first night in Costa Rica here at Hotel Aeropuerto. It was a perfect choice with all of the conveniences you need in an airport hotel without that big chain feel or price. Locally owned and run, the staff were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast in the garden was delicious and our free shuttle to the car rental was waiting for us at our scheduled time.

Rooms were clean and staff were friendly.
Breakfast was decent and the attached restaurant was excellent in the evenings.
Prices seemed a little on the high side.
Location was approx 10 mins from the airport, not much around the hotel within walking distance but Uber works well.

Very supportive and friendly staff. The restaurant for early dinner was good. Dark local brew beer very tasty. Prices were reasonable. Pulled pork sandwich was very tasty. Breakfast was standard fare but good. Beds were comfortable. Our room was quiet. Price was reasonable. Complaints: ice machine needs to be available to guests without going to the owner's house next door. Taxi to airport was very cramped. Too many guests with baggage required some bags to be stored on top of van. Everyone was stuffed into the van. Having said this, we will stay there again next year.

A very nice economical accommodation with good size rooms, a nice breakfast and small bar on the second floor of the registration building. The staff are friendly and efficient. The closest restaurants are about 100-200 meters East of the complex.

This is a nice hotel conveniently located near the airport. They offer shuttle service to and from the airport. The facility isn't as grand as it once was, but everything was clean and well appointed. They had a good restaurant on premise, which was nice so we didn't have to go out after a long day of touring the area.

Answer from Ryan S

It wasn't that convenient for us. This hotel is about 15-20 mins from the airport if I recall, and from there, another 15-20 mins to the storefront of Enterprise. We used Enterprise as well, ans they took us in a shuttle from the airport and took us somewhere to get the car.
