Nice place in downtown La Fortuna - good location to go to other retuarants or bars or banks or anything you would need to go to a town to do. The rooms are spacious and have AC. However, we had problems with our remote control at first so make sure you get a functional remote. The wifi was also ok.

Stayed here for two nights, the rooms are comfy, practical and spacious. The showers are especially good (a luxury in Costa Rica ). Overall a pleasant place to stay and a good base for visiting the volcano, hot springs, waterfalls and other attractions due to its central location in La Fortuna. Another huge benefit is the free wifi which is... More

We decided to save some money and stay here after our flight. We are staying at a nice lodge and springs that is pricier, but we weren't getting in till early evening. We found this hotel on Trip Advisor and, from the reviews it seemed like the simple, clean hotel we were looking for. When we pulled up, we got... More

Great location, city center, close to the restaurants, supermarket, bus station and local stores. The receptionist was so kind, helped us with tips regarding tours, very useful. The breakfast is not continental, they had local Gallo Pinto, with banana and delicious fruits. Local coffee (amazing) as well. The shower was wonderful! And the bedroom had Vulcan view.

This hotel came recommended from a friend; and I am passing this recommendation on as this a great hotel! Staff went above and beyond taking care of us during our two night stay. My girlfriend had her luggage lost by our airline and the male staff member at the front desk went out of his way to help us. (Call... More

Well stocked (and reasonable) shop downstairs and also since I don't have a tablet and didn't take my phone travelling it was nice to see a... More

Nice, clean, comfortable, big room, walking distance to center of town. Close to bus station and restaurants. Choosing bus over taxi, from San Jose, will save you over than $200, for two, for the same few hours scenic drive. Enjoy.

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
