Hotels in San Jose – East Side

by | Mar 25, 2014

Traffic conditions in San Jose continue to get worse each day.  On a bad traffic evening, it can take well over an hour to go from the Juan Santamaria Airport (SJO) to a hotel on the East side of the center.

For this reason, since 2023, Private Shuttles going to/from hotels and Airbnb’s located East of 15th Street (Calle 15) and/or South of 12th Avenue (Avenida 12) have an additional fee of $28 US per trip.

Here is a very incomplete list of hotels:

  • Hotel Boutique Luz de Luna
  • Ave del Paraiso
  • Casa Conde
  • Casa Orquideas
  • Casa 69
  • Hostal Urbano – San Pedro
  • All hotels and Airbnb in Barrio Escalante
  • Hotel Bougainvillea
  • Hotel Boutique Jade
  • Hotel Catalonia
  • Hotel Le Bergerac
  • Hotel M
  • Hotel Milvia

Hotels and rental houses located further East in Curridabat or Tres Rios have additional fees depending on the exact location, and where you are coming from.   Driving from the San Jose Airport to this part of the city can take 45 minutes to 1.5 hour, or more during rush hours or times of slow traffic.

Here is a list of some properties in these areas:

  • Hotel Hyatt Place Pinares
  • The Train Suites
  • Cedar Cats Apartments
  • Casa Marlui
  • Casa Kibi Kibi

If you are coming from, or going to, the airport, we suggest you use hotels on the West side of the city.

If the hotel you are going to is not listed here, please contact us to confirm the exact price.

Reliable and comfortable

This was my first experience with Morphovans and it was so easy. I reserved the van online and Francisco, my driver, was waiting for me outside the airport with a sign to welcome me. He was very friendly and efficient. And the van was very clean and comfortable. I will definitely use this company again and will recommend it to anyone.

…started with the best

We were really tired from the flight so it was a relief to have someone waiting for us on time. The vehicle was very good. The driver was so nice and friendly. Our trip started with the best way because of Morpho vans. Thank you!

Company is fantastic as is the people you employ

Mario, your company is fantastic as is the people you employ. Jimmy was probably the best person to get us acquainted with Costa Rica. Bring my phone back to me, will never be forgotten and I will recommend you guys to all my friends and family traveling to Costa Rica. Pura Vida!

Great communication before the trip and during, even when our plans kept changing they were really responsive and nothing was a problem.

Clean car, great driver, punctual.

Would use again without hesitation.

I would recommend this company with the highest of praise and confidence!

Morpho Vans was a huge help to us. We needed a ride 6 hours away and they responded promptly and efficiently and provided us with an excellent car and an even better driver- Jimmy. We called them for every ride we needed in Costa Rica- I would recommend this company with the highest of praise and confidence!

Excellent service with Morpho Vans on our trip to Costa Rica!

Excellent service with Morpho Vans on our trip to Costa Rica! We had two families of 4 people and all trips were great. SJO to Jaco area in a van for 8 people (with free WIFI), then Jaco to Lost Igurano resort, which is a 5+ hour trip on winding roads, and finally a trip back to the airport at 4 am. Drivers always arrived early but were fine waiting for us. We stopped at local restaurants for great meals. All trips were safe and efficient. I highly recommend if you are looking for transportation in Costa Rica.

Most Reliable Ride!

No better way to end a long day of travel than to see a friendly face holding a sign with my name. From being easy to identify to always arriving early for a pick up, Morpho drivers are the best!
