There is much to explore both in the hotel’s immediate neighborhood as well as the outlying areas of Alajuela and San José. The Alajuela Central Park is only a block away, and restaurants, museums, shops and more are all within walking distance. Outside of the city, visitors can travel to coffee plantations and the Poás Volcano National Park, or sign up for river rafting or canopy tours. The Central Valley is a springboard for the rest of the country, making it easy to travel by bus, car or plane to nearly any part of Costa Rica.
Hotel Los Volcanes is set within a mansion that was built during the 1920s and refurbished recently to ensure both its safety and convenience. Features such as 20-foot-high paneled ceilings, polished wood wainscoting and old-style double doors envelop it in an old world ambiance. However, it’s amenities – which include hot water bathrooms, cable TV, wireless internet and more – ensure that guests will remain comfortable throughout their stay. There is a cozy indoor sitting area and a large outdoor patio, providing guests with places that are perfect for relaxing or reading.
The hotel’s accommodations offer guests the option of having either a private or shared bathroom. The rooms are styled in a colonial fashion, with warm colors, period photographs and original art. All are equipped with a ceiling fan, cable TV, telephone and twin or queen size beds. What’s more, a free breakfast is offered to guests every morning – definitely a good way to kick-start the day! See map for location.
Please note that the hotel only offers transportation from the hotel to the airport, not from the airport to the hotel. You can take a taxi from the airport to the hotel for about $5.
Nearby, there is a bus stop for trips from Alajuela to San José. It leaves every 15 minutes, costs $1 per person, and is a 40-minute ride.
