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

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

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.
