Fresh flowers accenting the room accessories are only one of the nice things about this hotel. It is conveniently located, the staff is friendly and helpful, and their tour operator is topnotch. It's a nice place to stay, and we hope to be back.

Stayed here when we booked a tour. This was the hotel that we got put up in. Clean room...... and yeah. If you are a light sleeper, don't sleep here. You can here EVERYTHING from down on the road. The hotel is situated on the corner of probably the busiest spot in La Fortuna. Staff are great, there is a... More

I knew Hotel Jireh sits right smack in the middle of the city so some traffic noise I was expecting. I actually thought for $40 the rooms were impressive in terms of the beds, the tv, having a safe and a bathroom. Agreed that it is pretty dated and is in need of an overhaul as the AC barely works...... More

We decided to stay here being a group of twenty people wanting to save some bucks. At $25 per person a night I guess u can't ask for much. Rooms are clean and decent. Matresses were uncomfortable and it gets kinda noisy at night. Good location though, about two blocks away u will find "soda la hormiga" where u will... More

We stayed here as part of our tour group that was travelling around Costa Rica. This hotel had friendly front-desk staff, and was helpful in calling taxis and getting information we needed. The room was clean but the beds were uncomfortable. The washroom was clean but never enough towels. They would take two but leave one clean one behind. The... More

In the busy tourist village of La Fortuna, you will find many tourist activities. My Costa Rica national friends told me it is a very safe community. Withing viewing distance of the Volcano Arenal, the scenery is tropical and lush. There are many international tourists partaking in the fun activities like zip lines, rafting, biking, and just soaking in hot... More

it was our first trip to Costa Rica, during the New Year, so we picked what was available. The hotel is clean and cheap. Rooms are a bit dated, but everything worked. Location is pretty good - center of the town La Fortuna, and we could see Arenal Volcano right from our bed. Staff is OK, but not very fast.... More

We stayed in the hotel for one night in one of the nice rooms on the top floor. While the room was OK and the view very nice, it was terribly loud at night. we heard everything from the adjacent room and from the street. The free Internet is unusable slow and the breakfast wasn't that good. The staff was... More

Firstly I should point out that our expectations of hotel rooms is of course influenced by the price. This was a cheap hotel in the centre of La Fortuna, and so of course we did not expect 5* luxury. What we did expect was somewhere comfortable & clean to sleep, and hot water. The room we had was on the... More
