Well..we didn't find cockroaches on the wall like other reviews, but there was interesting "murals" and other artwork, which was probably the only highlight (we made the best of it). In all actuality, after a three and a half hour drive from Monteverde through mountains and pitstops galore; this was a place to crash. If you want cheap and a... More

We arrived very late in La Fortuna in the middle of high season and everything else was booked so we ended up in Luigi's. The biggest problem of the place are the rooms. The decor is totally awful (green and pink walls with some creepy animals). The bathroom was filthy and we had 2 cockroaches coming out of the bath!... More

As well, we had many problems with the toilets in the rooms, always locked and nobody came to fixed them when we told... More

We got bombarded by a gentleman with a flyer for this hotel right as we got off the public bus. We decided to walk over to the hotel as we didn't have a place to stay yet. As it turned out, it was affordable and nice. We paid $15/each and got a nice private room with large shower (with hot... More

This hotel is very comfortable and in a great location. It's not expensive and includes an amazing breakfast. The staff are very attentive and there is a large pool and jacuzzi. I highly recomend it for couples and families on a low budget.

We spent several nights in La Fortuna and stayed at Luigi's. The location was great and very central to locations we wanted to access in town. It was also relatively close to the volcano and the other nearby attractions (we had no trouble accessing the sights). Rooms were pretty clean and we had no complaints on that front. Breakfast was...

We stayed here for one night with a group of 25 and they accommodated us just fine, as well as the breakfast in the morning. The showers were nice and the beds were fine. The pool was a little cold and the hot tub was very hot, so as college kids we just threw pool water into the hot tub... More
