Great little hotel, clean (and massive!) double rooms with balcony and a/c. Breakfast in the morning was good and the staff friendly. Didn't use the pool but loved walking over the little bridge above it! The only niggle was the corridor to our room was so dark we had to use phone lights to guide our way until the sensor... More

For the price, this is a great little hotel. Very centrally located- walk just outside and you will find lots of restaurants and shops. The staff is very nice, breakfast was great, rooms were clean. The Hotel is older, but hey it was only $50 and the location saved us a lot of driving.

I just returned from a two night stay at this hotel. From all appearances it should have been one of our favorite hotels of the whole trip. it has good sized room, with big showers, nice pool and garden area and excellent meals. But, the showers ran icy cold, then scalding hot then normal, then back to hat/cold. The hot... More

The town of La Fortuna is very cute and this hotel is located within easy walking distance of the town square, a nice church, souvenir shops, and restaurants. The hotel itself is arranged around a central courtyard that contains the swimming pool. The room was clean and basic. I had hot water, although some of my friends' rooms did not.... More

We paid $20 per person and that is just about what this hotel is worth. It is conveniently located in town and offers a safe and clean place to stay. Unfortunately our shower sucked. The temperature changed the temperature whenever it wanted and only ranged from extremely hot to extremely cold. Our friends in the next room did not have... More

I would not stay in this hotel again. My friend and I had stayed at a hotel in the same price range, a bit further from town, that was a much better quality. The rooms are clean, but very cramped. We had a twin bed and a double bed in our room, and it left only the entrance area to... More

I booked this for my family of 4 as the " low budget" hotel for our 3 week holiday. I knew the surrounding activities were going to be pricey so I was trying to make our budget work. I expected a small rebellion from my boys 9 and 12 but to my chagrin this has been their favorite hotel despite... More
