Stayed here for 4 nights and thought that the room/hotel was very good. Location is perfect. Everything you need was within easy walking distance (grocery store, restaurants, bank, laundry, bus station). We only slept in the room, and it was perfect for this. Cleaned well daily. Large bathroom with consistent hot water, but a shower curtain that didn't always keep... More

My husband and I arrived at La Fortuna on our 1st day of a 10-day vacation package only to discover that the company we used "Package Costa Rica" had not paid for our room at La Fortuna nor ANY of our trip. As you can imagine we were devastated! Luckily, the reception, Manrique, was amazing!! He helped us to re-book... More

I stayed here along with a friend and upon arriving early our room wasn't ready. This was fine because the lady at the front desk offered to put our backpacks behind the counter so we could go out for a few hours to see the area. Once getting back we went to our room on the third floor with a... More

A friend and I stayed there and though it was really close to everything in town it wasn't the cleanest of places we could have stayed. The staff was decent towards but didn't really seem enthusiastic to help us out when we had problems with the shower overflowing into our room. Also our wifi didn't work in our room as... More

Hotel La Fortuna has a great location in the heart of the town. You are just minutes away from the central park and restaurants and bars. Each room has a relatively good view of the volcano if not cloudy. However due to its location and lack of sound proofing anything you do can be heard by your neighbors and likewise.... More

OK so it's not your typical 5 star hotel in the states, but its definitely worth staying here! The rooms are comfortable and clean, the staff very friendly and helpful! In the heart of the beautiful town of Costa Rica!!! They also serve a great breakfast every morning with an abundance of locally grown fruit, best coffee ever! And last... More

We weren't sure what to expect based on the mixed reviews, after staying here for 4 nights I can say that our experience at this hotel was wonderful. The hotel is in the hub of town. There are 3 grocery stores just a short walk away and loads of great restaurants to choose from. You'll have to take a taxi... More
