Hotel is very basic but price is cheap too. The reception staff was very helpful and informative. He helped to arrange trips for us and do the bookings. Room was clean. There is shop just on the other side of road. Hotel is in the centre with easy access to other amenities.

One of the cheaper places you'll find in La Fortuna. Rooms were okay although a bit beat up and smelled funny. It is, however, pretty centrally located and has a supermarket right next to it. Staff was also very friendly.

The rooms are very basic but what you would expect for the price. Saving money on the room meant more money for the many tours that you can do here. No breakfast options but there is a very small eatery next door and others within minutes. Staff friendly and not pushy trying to sell tours. We arrived quite early and... More

The owner of this establishment made our stay at las palmas very uncomfortable. We booked tours in advance and after he found out that we wouldn't be booking through him (which was more expensive anyways) he became super weird. The guy was throwing looks at us every time we returned to the hotel, questioning why we booked with another company,... More

We loved it here! Only planned to stay 2 nights but prolonged our stay for another one. The rooms are simple but very nice and clean - it's more than you can expect for that price. The host may seem a bit grumpy at first, but he's superfriendly and helped us out with a safe for our passports, a supercheap... More

The room was clean (when we first got it), it had air conditioning, tv, bathroom with hot water, refrigerator, 2 big beds, really good wifi, there was free parking... exactly what we needed. It was very affordable as me and a friend paid for a private double room with private bathroom and air conditioning and tv and refrigerator what we... More

Hmmm, where to start. Room was fine, basic but thats what we paid for. Only major issue with it was the temperature. Crikey, with fan and window open (resulting in numerous bites!) it was still sooo hot. Everything was a bit dated, but again, it was a relatively cheap stay. No hot water as such but not freezing but that... More

As we see more hotels in Costa Rica, this one was between worse ones. For money you pay one would expect more. Plus: Silence even in a centre. Fridge.Parking. Minus: Quality of bad. Broken lamps. No breakfast proposed, but fortunatelly many restaurants around. Cleaning should be better.

We stayed at Franklins cabinas in october 2014 and our stay was all over perfect. Here's why: 1. When we booked a tour (and we booked many tours), it always came out that the other participants had payed more than we did. 2. The room was neat and tidy, the best one that we had through our whole Costa Rica... More
