Nuestro Hotel y Nuestro Hogar

When visiting Costa Rica you have two broad options: you can either stay at a fancy resort and not really discover the real Costa Rica or you can stay at a local hotel and find the genuine flavor of Costa Rica. For my trip in July I opted for the REAL thing and stayed at the Hotel Aeromundo which is in Grecia, a few minutes drive outside of San Jose. The hotel is just steps away from the main landmark in Grecia which is the beautiful cathedral. Doris Castillo, the owner of Aeromundo, went out of her way to be gracious to me during my stay and even drove me back to the airport for my departure. I stayed in a room with two twin beds with air (AC is not standard in many of the hotels in Costa Rica since the temps are very agreeable year long). A home cooked breakfast was included. Staff was very friendly to me and helpful when I needed assistance. The big advantage of staying here is the fact that you are right in the middle of everyday life in Costa Rica. You can explore the many restaurants nearby and shop in the convenient stores. I even took in a community wide sporting event via a giant screen (the soccer game). WiFi was included. It’s not fancy like a Conrad or a Crowne Plaza, but if you want to feel like one of the folks try out Doris’s hotel. It’s a home away from home.
I have stayed at this hotel on 5 different occasions for 2 weeks each time. I have been very pleased with the services provided. The rooms were always cleaned each day. They have wifi and television if you need it. The hotel is centrally located in Grecia which makes it easy to get anywhere in the city. If you are new to the area and culture it is a perfect place to call home for a few weeks. The workers and owner can speak multiple languages if you are worried about language barriers. I would recommend this to any friend traveling to the area.
Overall, Aeromundo more than met my basic needs during my house search, and I felt comfortable and safe as I went about my business. I would certainly recommend it for folks who want a well-located, clean and functioning place to stay for a week or so. In fact, the place and staff kind of grow on you and I missed them when I left.
