This hotel has a pretty good location, just a couple minute walk from the Central Park in La Fortuna. The WiFi was not very strong in my room and kept disconnecting me. The pool and jacuzzi were nice. The breakfast was also good, including some traditional Costa Rican cuisine along with pancakes, toast, and cereal. The staff at the front... More

The Inn is located just off the main street and is clean and relatively quiet at night. The staff was excellent, advice and assistance from the office highly valued. The breakfasts provided in the mornings were among the best on my trip. Pool and hot tub were in great shape and looked inviting.

What's not to like? Clean rooms. Nice pool. Great breakfast included. Complimentary coffee & Wi-Fi. Kind service. Right near the center of town. Great views of Arenal. For this price, you'd be a fool not to stay here! Excellent budget option.

Staff was very friendly and provided great information. The location was in the city...walking distance to the town center. Clean rooms and great breakfast options! Would definitely recommend for short stays!

This hotel is an excellent option for travelers on more of a budget who still want a comfortable and clean place to sleep where the staff is incredibly helpful, the breakfast is good (and included), and the location is perfect.

As far as budget hotels go, this one is great. While small, the rooms are comfortable and clean. The breakfast and free coffee were good and the wifi was fast and never went down. The pool and hot tub were nice and the staff was helpful. The location, 2 blocks from the central park, is perfect. The only negative aspect... More

This last weekend my family and I had a Triathlon competition in La Fortuna. We choose San Bosco Inn cause it was near the event. We got more than expected, nice place, great rooms, nice breakfast, and nice quite swimming pool almost as private as being home. The breakdown point was how near all restaurants are from the hotel and... More

San Bosco has a friendly, helpful staff, great location & everything you need. The pools are nice, the rooms are cozy & the location is great. There are many activities to do in the area & San Bosco is an easy place to be picked up. I definitely recommend this hotel for all types of travelers.

This hotel is just a block from the town center, but it is very basic. The included breakfast buffet was just so/so, it was outdoors and needed a few more covers to keep the bugs off the butter, etc. The staff is friendly and helpful. Rooms 1-11 are noisy. I had dogs barking all night long, but they were happy... More
