I stayed here last week with my daughter (my 3rd visit to La Fortuna). If you prefer to stay in town, I think this is your best choice. Close to everything, though tucked back in a quiet area. TV, Air conditioner (which didn't work too well, but it was cool enough outside that we didn't need it), pool/Jacuzzi, and a... More

My husband and I stayed here for one week in November. The hotel was very clean, had air conditioning and served a great breakfast. But what really made our stay was the fantastic service from the front desk to maid service! This hotel is located near the center of town which gave us plenty of meal time choices! There are...

Super nice rooms, clean, great location, easy to walk all over La Fortuna. Close (1 block to main park) and restaurants and tours. Hot tub, sushi bar, great breakfast. Quiet at night and the flowers there are incredible.

Hotel San Bosco was one of the best parts of my 9-day trip to Costa Rica. The picture-perfect views of the volcano, quiet location (but walking distance from town) and absolutely phenomenal free breakfast were enough to make me stay here on every return trip to La Fortuna. The large, clean pool was also very relaxing after a long day... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. Nice clean room with ac, fan and television. Has the looks of an American motel. Breakfast was included and good. Tours were expensive, if you have your own car just visit the places by yourself or book a tour in town. They also have a nice panarama terrace with view on the volcano on... More

San Bosco is a great choice if you are looking for a great location in La Fortuna, nice rooms, and an excellent continental breakfast. San Bosco is only a block away from the main park in downtown La Fortuna, but was not noisy at all. The price was also very reasonable for a private room. The pool and Jacuzzi looked... More

This place is one of the best valued accommodations in the Arenal area. For the very reasonable price that you pay, it includes all that a budget traveller requires, and a bit more. San Bosco provides very clean rooms, a private bathroom, communal pool, hot tub, a little "mirador" (viewing deck to see the volcano) on the top floor of... More

Rooms are small but you can't beat the price. The location is almost right in the center, near all the shops and restaurants. It has an excelent view of arenal from the pool area. One could sit out watching the lava flow on a clear night. Service is excellent. Free WiFi from any where in the hotel. Free coffee and... More

Room #40 is in the back and adjoins another room with thin walls. Neighbor has tv on till 9 pm and so did we. Fortunately they turned off their tv at 9 and all was well. Get used to the clicking gecko noise at night... wherever you stay in CR, no, it is not someone tapping on your window ...... More

One of the best places we stayed during our trip around the country. Very clean, very friendly staff, good premises. Only problem was the noise. Not very well isolated, but then again, almost all hotels had the same problem. Would definitely recommend, specially for the price/quality ratio.
