The room was basic but very clean and all that is required close to the airport. The owner made us feel so welcome and invited us to park in his private garage (as cars being broken into are apparently common in downtown alajuela). The breakfast was really lovely - fresh fruit, juice, bread and jam and of course traditional style...

I recommend this place to everyone! It is a very clean, safe and friendly place with great service! Here you will feel like home! It is very close to airport, just a quick taxi drive away, close to restaurant and shops but still is a quiet place for a good night sleep, a nice breakfast and you are always welcomed...

I stayed at Hotel Casa Tago in January 2015 and I have to say it was the best service I've had In Costa Rica. The hotel is cheap authentic and very well located (Downtown Alajuela; 6mn from the airport). It is very clean and the breakfast is good. The service is amazing, Umberto and Constanza make you feel like if...

This is a really small hotel, room are nice but the one in the hallway could use a bit more privacy( a bit noisy) the included breakfast was good, we also really appreciate the location about 5-10 min cab ride from the airport, staff is also really friendly. Overall it is a good value for your money but mostly to...

Everything in the room worked: hot water in shower, AC, TV. Typical Tico breakfast. Friendly staff, close to banks, a park, and shops. We felt secure, and there were no problems. The...

We stayed at Casa Tago for our very 1st night in Costa Rica. It is nicely located close to the airport and cost very little. We found the place very sad: agressive light, no windows (just one on the corridor), noisy. Impossible to close the door of the bathroom so when you need to us the toilets, it is not...
