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.

This hotel has a lovely reception area. There are 3 computers available to use and the friendly, helpful staff are on hand when the internet won't work! There is plenty of space to sit and chat on comfy sofas etc and there is an area with some tourist information. You can book activities from here too. My room was on... More

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

Hotel is perfect for being in the mix of la fortuna town. The town itself has some of the better food choices in the area. Excellent value for those on a budget. Front desk staff is very friendly and knowledgable of everything in town for whatever your budget may be. Wifi was spotty and for me worked best if in... More

Hotel La Fortuna was a decent option for us for our one night stay in La Fortuna. Located in the heart of "downtown," the hotel is within walking distance to many of the better restaurants. We were also grateful for the receptionist who helped us sort out a problem with a rafting company we had booked a service through. Breakfast... More

Clean rooms, in town, view of the volcano from some rooms. Staff try to be helpful but not overly friendly. Basic no frills. Rooms were quiet, wifi worked sporadically, walking distance around town. Tourist draw is the volcano.

The hotel was a nice surprise for a budget option. There is not much in La Fortuna to see but it is not far to the usual destinations. The staff was very friendly. The wireless internet was slow but functional and password protected. The free breakfast was average. The hotel and rooms appeared clean and adequate.
