Hotel Catedral is a very nice and clean place to stay in Alajuela. The location is perfect being nearby the plaza and a short walking distance to the two bus stations. There are a couple good restaurants and a supermarket in the area. Jose really made my friend and I feel welcome. I'd recommend staying at Hotel Catedral to anyone visiting Alajuela.
The stay at Hotel Catedral was very pleasant. The room was clean and although our AC wasn't working, they were willing to get someone to come fix it right away which we thought was kind and decided it was not necessary. The view was great and everyone was very nice!
Thanks!! Pura Vida
