"OUR GOLD IS TO MAKE YOUR STAYING VERY CONFORTABLE AND PLEASENT¨ AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.
My stay at Melrost was wonderful. They were very accommodating. I ended up leaving my bag on the bus on the way there and they helped me track it down the next day. Because I was leaving Costa Rica, they offered to meet the bus on its way back from Coco to get my bag and were going to mail it for me. A friend was able to help me out so it all worked out. But the fact that they offered was really above and beyond.
I highly recommend their B&B and will stay here the next time I am in Costa Rica.
Très pratique, à 5 mn de l'aéroport
We highly recommend Melrost B&B if you are arriving or departing San Jose. The room was really comfortable, bathroom immaculately clean, breakfast on the balcony was lovely and the free transfer to the airport was greatly appreciated! Thanks Katia & the whole team - we'll be back for sure next time we visit Costa Rica!
Hôtel très bien situé à proximité de l'aéroport Transport et service remarquable
We had a great time staying here at Melrost on the first and last night of our 3 week trip. All the staff was super helpful in getting us to and from the Mepe bus terminal in San Jose so that we could get to and from Puerto Viejo de Talamanca. Our flight was delayed on the way to Costa Rica and because of that we were over an hour late so when their main driver couldn't stay at the terminal to pick us up he made sure someone else was there to wait for us since he didn't know if we were going to make it or not. They made everything very easy and were very accommodating. They even called and ordered pizza for us on our last night since we didn't speak spanish. The breakfast was simple eggs, toast with jam, fresh fruit and a delicious juice which made for the perfect way to start the day. No one from our group of 3 had a single bad thing to say about staying here and all the staff made everything so easy and stress free and always made sure we made it on time to where we had to be. The beds were very comfortable and our last night there we even had a suite with 2 rooms and a living room which was very comfortable after a long bus ride back to San Jose. If you are looking for a good comfortable place to stay and somewhere you can relax after your trip then look no further.
Staying here was very usefull. Very close to the airport and transportation was available at any time.
Melrost is in Alajuela. I arrived in the middle of the night, 2 am. The guard let me in and walked me to my room. The room was an apt. It was big with 2 bedrooms, a kitchenett and living room with very old bedding. However, the real problem was the smell. The whole apt smelled insecticide. I started getting a headache and my stomach was turning inside out. Luckly the night guard show me two rooms, one very small and another one. I stayed at the other room with a door to the balcony. The insecticide smell was very much less. I requested not to put any insecticide, deodorisers or desinfectants in my room. Katia and her sister Carol were very nice and helpful. They gave me rides to Walmart and to the airport. Breakfast was ok,
We reserved the morning we arrived, and they were able to accommodate us and pick us up at the airport. By US standards, the room was on the small side, but it was completely acceptable, especially for the price. It was clean, and had the amenities Americans expect--AC, comfortable mattress, shampoo & soap, coffeemaker, cable TV, phone, etc. Even more important, the owners were beyond nice and spoke excellent English. They went out of their way to help us see Costa Rica. The driver took us where we wanted to go, meaning we did not need to rent a car (which was good because the traffic was a bit crazy!). The breakfast on the balcony was lovely and was delivered at the time we requested it. We would definitely stay here again, and will recommend it to anyone else who is traveling to Costa Rica.
Well our stay was short but Barnaby and his wife were great host. Very convent place. We were picked at the air port and brought back
To the air port in the morning for our early flight home ! Clean and safe place
Stayed here for an evening before an early morning flight.
The staff are really lovely and super helpful and set the place apart. They provided us with a small bag of coffee for our early start and packed up our breakfast for the travel ahead. They have a free shuttle services that can drop you off/pick you up from the airport (and also take you to some nearby restaurants).
The place was really clean and beds were comfortable.
The only downside is that since the place 5 minutes from the airport, it can be a bit noisy at times.
