My friend and I traveled to Costa Rica in late March 2011 and stayed at Hotel La Fortuna for a few nights. The hotel was in a great location - there is a 'supermarket' just up the street, a cute park, awesome coffee shop and some shops close by. Further we were very impressed with the restaurant staff. They were... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in March. When we first arrived we needed a shower after a long journey. But the water was off - no hot or cold water and we couldn't even flush the toilet. This remained the case for about 4 hours. After that, things were fine. Nice rooms butane sure you get... More

We recently stayed at Hotel La Fortuna for 2 nights and were very happy with our stay. The rooms are small, but comfortable. There is TV and A/C in the rooms and computers downstairs with free internet. Only complaints are that the walls are a little thin- but we didn't have any significant noise problems. The best feature of this... More

Stayed for two nights while on a week-long trip to CR. Hotel La Fortuna is one of the larger hotels in town and probably one of the nicest. The staff was great during check-in/check-out, cleaning the room, and providing great service at the restaurant/bar. We "splurged" for the volcano view room which was nice. We had a great time doing... More

We had a great time staying at Hotel La Fortuna. The staff was very helpful regarding organizing excursions and transport. Besides being comfortable, neat, and clean, our room had a great view of the volcano.

I stayed here for one night hoping to see the volcano. The hotel was easy to find and the staff extremely friendly. My room was extremely comfortable and clean with a great view. I lunched here and it was freshly prepared for me. On the evening I enjoyed 2 for 1 cocktails - a brilliant daquari. Breakfast was excellent with... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights, and arrived at 2 in the morning on the one night. The staff sent us straight to our room, and let us fill out the forms in the morning, which was so nice of them. The hotel was 5 stories high, and had an elevator! This was the only hotel we stayed... More

The location was great, in the heart of the little town of La Fortuna. Rooms were basic but clean and modern. Staff were friendly and very helpful. We phoned ahead and asked them to book some tours for us which they were more than happy to do. We only stayed for a night, but the restaurant and bar were very... More
