We arrived after a long journey from Monteverde hoping for a comfortable stay for the night. For $50 dollars a room, I expected a lot more. The room had dirt spatters on the wall, with two single beds, barely-there mattresses, and a hint of a blanket. Our room also didn't have an outside window, so we either had to suffocate,... More

Clean, modern and spacious with an awesome view of Arenal Volcano from the window/balcony. Courteous and helpful front desk staff especially Mercedes. Breakfast fresh and tasty served with smiles and again a great view of the volcano. A block to main street and all the wonderful shops and eateries and people. No fridge in the room, but used the one... More

This is the largest hotel in town and does look a little out of place. However the rooms are clean and comfortable and you are located very close to the center of town. Staff were very helpful. Wifi available in the lobby, and if you are lucky in the room.

My check in at this hotel with a lady hotel staff was disappointing. She did not smile the entire time she was on duty. Asking her about anything is like having a root canal. Is a client such a bother for her boring day? Seems like she never heard of customer service. The next one on duty was a guy... More

I got a very good discount for doing the reservation via web. The rooms were nice and cozey and we got a room in the 4th floor with a wonderful view of the Volcano! There was a nice parking lot right next to the building so it felt safe to leave the car there even though there is no guard... More

La Fortuna hotel is a very nice property, comparable or better than a Holiday Inn Express. It's the tallest building in town (6 floors?), and the building looks out of place. The hotel had a good breakfast, was centrally located so restaurants, banks, shopping were nearby. We had a view of Arenal Volcano. The problem was that we came to... More

Nice clean rooms with comfortable bed and pillows, a place to hang clothes and shelves for suitcase, bathroom fan, lots of hot water and shower pressure, wifi in-room, air conditioning (extra $5 per night) and a desk. (We were in room 510) Friendly and helpful front desk staff. Good location close to central La Fortuna.

I was just thinking about Costa Rica and realized writing reviews of my amazing trip in May was long overdue! :) This hotel is comfortable, clean, friendly, and extremely convenient for walking to everything in the downtown of La Fortuna. The staff was so helpful regarding recommending tours, restaurants, etc. We could not believe how great the price was and... More
