The hotel is well situated near the centre of La Fortuna. The rooms are basic, but clean, with an adequate bathroom with a good supply of hot water. The air conditioning worked well. A buffet breakfast is served by the swimming pool. The reception staff perhaps not quite as helpful as they could be. There is no restaurant or bar,... More

This Inn is clean, centrally located in the center of town, and walking distance to shopping and dining. The Inn is family owned and the staff speaks very good English. Its not a high end Inn but is very nice. The buffet breakfast is very good and included in the price. If you stay here do not forget to go... More

This is a GREAT hotel for the active traveler. We did not plan to be in our room often - so we didn't want to spend too much on luxury. This hotel was absolutely perfect. The breakfast is ok but serves it's purpose. The rooms are simple but clean. The location is ideal for walking into town. The front desk... More

The rooms are comfy. The staff is helpful. Every question was answered with patience Nice breakfast. And a real pool. Really good value for money. The location is quiet but within the town of LA Fortuna. Recommended.

Not many hotels around the area but this was fine (but not for those who don't like putting toilet paper in a bin!) wifi free in rooms and easy to reach plug points for recharging. No safe deposit box but can leave valuables with reception. Free coffee station by reception

We took our family of five to Costa Rica the first week of 2015 and spent 8 days touring the country. Our touring company books us for two nights at the San Bosco on January 3rd and 4th. I can honestly say that those were the worse two nights of our trip. The original room they put us in was... More

I would definitely stay here again. It was nice to not need a rental car or taxis to get into town or to restaurants. We did not have any issues with noise from the town. The price was right, too. We stayed here for a week and were starting to run out of things we wanted to do, especially since... More

Stayed here for 4 nights and I'm pretty satisfied with this place. Paid around $53 usd a night as I got it from Expedia. Breakfast served was pretty good but the only feedback is that I ate pretty much the same thing for 4 days, would be good if there's some variety. But food tasted pretty good for all 4... More

nice, well maintained place. very clean, breakfast is nice. cute pool. great location. although very clean they have an ant issue and hot water can be better, but that's all across Costa Rica, we noticed. great service. 1.5 min walking from the city center and therefore quiet. great with the extras.

Tremendous breakfast and service. Well worth the money and a great find. Would stay again in the future. Can walk most everywhere in Fortuna from this hotel so leave car in ample parking lot. Did not use pool or hot tub as rainy season and I was ill but looks inviting.
