"OUR GOLD IS TO MAKE YOUR STAYING VERY CONFORTABLE AND PLEASENT¨ AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.
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.
The staff make this place worthwhile. They are super polite, friendly and helpful. Breakfast is decent: eggs, toast and fruit. Very clean room, but some ants around the sink. It's very dark inside the room which is a bit depressing. Also, it is loud like the others said. The issue is that there is not proper sound proofing so you can hear people in their rooms and outside. I was woken up around 3 am when a couple checked in and again at 7 am when another group had breakfast on the patio. Bring eat plugs! But again, the staff are truly amazing!
Big, clean and nice room. Breakfast healthy! The team was friendly et very nice.
Perfect for a 1st night after a long trip in plane
Response from Katia:
Thank you so much for your words!!
Was a pleasure to have you staying with us. Hope to see you next time!
Unfortunately I missed my flight from Canada. I would stay at Melrost again for the proximity to the airport. Once again I apologise for not being able to make it.
Good place to stay for a night. Free airport pick-up. They also dropped me off at the bus stop the next morning.
