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

The price was what we needed. The location is right in town and convenient. The young man at the reception desk was friendly and helpful, however, the rest of the staff were generally cool. They were hesitant to give us an extra pouch of coffee.

We had room 411: the room is big and it was clean! Unfortunately you cannot open the window so we had to open the door for some fresh air... It was pretty warm in the room as the aircon is not included in the room price. Hotel is located in the center and they have a minimarket in the hotel... More

Centre location makes it noisy from the busy main road. Free (slow) Wifi. Good showers with plenty of hot water, good breakfast ~ fresh pineapple / banana / orange followed by scrambled egg and toast. The male receptionist was very welcoming. Breakfast staff weren't too friendly though and wouldn't even return a smile. Room seemed to be fairly clean BUT... More

Many of the rooms in this hotel have no windows, Otherwise, it was a functional hotel with clean sheets, bathroom, and air conditioning. The breakfast was quite good with lots of fruit. It's main plus was its proximity to town and the little mini store in the lobby.

We spent two nights at this hotel during our tour of Costa Rica. Its great advantage is its central position close to the town's shops and restaurants. However, it is not on the main road, so it is quiet. Our third floor room would have provided us with a great view of the Arenal Volcano but this was shrouded in... More

It is a bit pricey to stay here compared to what you normally get. I think most other places were full up as it was approaching Easter weekend so I settled for here. I paid a similar price to a 4 or 5 star hotel in. San Jose. When they charged me for a deposit for a safety deposit box... More
