First room they gave us the sink dumped directly onto the bathroom floor, the mold was so thick in the room it was unbearable. In the second room the mold was even worse, had to keep opening the door to get breathable air in there. Not to mention cockroaches EVERYWHERE!!! DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!!!!

Luigis is centrally located in La Fortuna on the main road. It is noisy at night because of the traffic. Our room was large but not really clean. We found some hairs on the floor and inside the bathroom. Old beds and walls need to be painted. Good for one or two nights not more.

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

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
