This place would be great if it was a bit further from the main road through town. It has an amazing view of the volcano, powerful A/C and good hot water. The rooms are average motel decor but the balconies are outstanding so you can sit and take in the view. My gripe with the place is like most Central... More

Mario, Andrea, and family run a nice hotel. Located at the edge of town, the hotel is an easy walk to La Fortuna's restaurants and shops. Our room was upgraded to an upstairs room with a balcony, from which we had a nice view of the volcano. It was spectacular. The room itself was comfortable with two full-size beds, a... More

Downtown La Fortuna was noisy, so I ventured out and found this hotel, just a 5 min. walk from the center. I paid $25 per night for a room with great A/C, fridge, safe, comfy bed, hot shower (except for once) and TV. I took a back room with no view of the volcano, but for $5 more you can... More

Reasonable prices, very clean rooms, and access to a kitchen. We've been traveling for the last 8 weeks in Costa Rica, and this is the best hotel of the trip. It's considerably less expensive than many hotels around La Fortuna, many of which costs $100 or more per night. It's just at the edge of town, less than five minutes... More

Great value and perfect location in heart of la fortuna. My boyfriend and I stayed here for a night, the rooms were clean modern and had big bathrooms-all for 40$ a night it was amazing. The hotel is actually set back from the front office/street so it's quieter, yet still in the downtown fortuna area. Breakfast was included and the... More

This place is cheap and the staff is friendly and helpful enough. But it is dull, rather ugly and the rooms have no charm whatsoever. We decided to stay only one night and instead we headed to the other side of the volcano to El Castillo, where you can find some nice cheap places in beautiful surroundings instead of this... More

It's very close downtown and close to the volcano and other attractions too. The view in the upper rooms is great. 2 king size beds in each room, fridge, safe, hot water, wifi, computers with Internet, AC. Very clean and the owner takes care of the place. Make sure to ask for the tours in reception, the can sell you... More
