On the first view at daylight the Hotel seemed to be ok, but at night the cockroaches were running over the beds. The staff was very unhelpfull and even lied at us. We left after one night. It was not possible to get the money back that we payed for a second night DON´T GO THERE!!!!

We spent two nights in 2014 in a four-bed-room. The staff was very unfriendly when we checked in. Rooms were poorly decorated; bathroom equipment was very poor and partly missing. Bedlinnen was dirty. Jacuzzi was not working. AC very old and noisy models.

Good value hotel right in the middle of La Fortuna. You can walk to everything in town from here, but they do have off-street parking. Breakfast is good. WiFi worked well. But for my, the highlight was the amazing view from my room of the volcano! I didn't use the pool but it looked good.

We stayed at Luigi's at a friends recommendation. It was OK, but I would not stay there again. The rooms were small and the Tv was about 10 feet above the beds. The pool was alright, but not deep or big. We did not attend breakfast. The staff was unfriendly. For the price it wasn't too bad.

Hotel Luigi's wasn't my first pick when I came to La Fortuna, but the hotels I wanted were fully booked. Luigi's hotel is a basic hotel, with rooms that do their job. Clean, although quite small. Breakfast is simple, but ok. Outside of the terrace you can book all your trips in La Fortuna, which we did (price reasonable). If... More

Great value-$30 for a private room incl. bathroom, air con, pool/jacuzzi, a couple of minutes walk to town, & a great view of the volcano! We looked at the hostel down the road and it was $50 which incl. everything stated above but no view of the volcano (kinda what you come to La Fortuna for!). Their $5 hot breakfast... More

Right as we got off the public bus a woman, Sonja, offered to help us with tours and hotels. She gave us a flyer of the hotel and walking directions. So we decided to walk over to the hotel. As it turned out, it was affordable and nice. We paid $30 and got a nice private room with hot water,... More

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

We were cheated with a tour operator that was supposed to work for the hotel. Afterwards, the management of the hotel said that they had no conection with this guy, called Mario, and gave us no solution. As well, we had many problems with the toilets in the rooms, always locked and nobody came to fixed them when we told... More
