Located in centre of town, near Parque de la Fortuna, so several restaurants and trip organisers in the neighbourhood. Friendly welcome. Good but simple breakfast. Nice terrace. Either we didn't know, but we didn't get any hot water for showers. Should have mentioned it to the Front Desk.

La Fortuna in high season - not the best time to be making last minute bookings! Coming from Monteverde, we knew we were lucky to get a room here at all; it was just unfortunate that we were unable to get two consecutive nights in the same room.

Thank you for your review. La Fortuna is a small town located in the RAIN FOREST, and this year more than normally is been very rainy, this the reason than even to us, hotel owners is been a challenge to take out the humidity from the rooms after 3 months of rain day after day.

There reservation cancellation said "No need to call and reconfirm" so we didn't. When we arrived at 6:00 pm they didn't have a room for us!

Budget friendly, clean, comfortable rooms; helpful staff; great breakfast. Great view of Arenal volcano interrupted by urban clutter. Call them to ask about parking. They will reserve a street slot for you. Very few parking slots available. No telephone in room. Good WiFi; I used Skype Out.

This place is located in the city of La Fortuna, close to Arenal vulcano. There are views to the vulcano, but usually most of it is hidden under clouds. This is a really nice place if you prefer to stay in the small town of La Fortuna, instead of the resorts in the area around. Staying in the city makes... More

Booked this hotel based on review here on tripadvisor but it turned out to be a not so wise idea. The advertised spacious modern room was in fact a very small and basic room with no constant hot water supply, thin walls and doors (=read very noisy). Beware that every hotel you see on the booking options on TA it... More
