I made a reservation here because it was affordable, looked clean, central location and had free breakfast. Well, I got half of what I wanted! I had seen an earlier review where a couple got sent away to a different location because they were overbooked. I thought it may be an isolated incident but we got sent away too! Kevin... More

Nothing fancy, but it was clean and the AC in the room was nice. The staff here was super cool. We booked a bunch of activities w Kevin. I asked everyone I met on the tours how much they paid for their activities and Kevin always got us the best deals. Most importantly we had a blast and we loved... More

Hotel Central Loft has the potential of being the shining star of hotels in La Fortuna. But it is not there now. They are in the middle of a management turnover and was unaware of my reservation, so I had to frantically search through my phone to justify my stay, making matters worse, the person who greeted me was arrogant...

As the previous post stated, the rooms are very spacious and very clean. We had a double bed room, with a small balcony. There was a large dresser with a flat screen tv on top so it didn't leave much room to put things on and there is only a little nightstand between the beds. The fridge was very handy... More

We stayed four nights. +++ The rooms were spacious and confortable, with a fridge. The breakfast was delicious. The person at the front desk was very friendly and helped us a lot with what to do and where to go. The location is right in the center, so you can walk to supermarket or restaurants easily. --- The walls were... More

This is the best you can get in the city. Cosy rooms, swimming pool, great staff. They don't convince you to do any tours and leave all on you. The location is in the city centre which is grand, car park, breakfast included. Really top notch of that area.

We stayed at the Central Loft and loved it! Rooms are clean, staff is friendly, and location is very convenient to everything there is to see in La Fortuna. We highly recommend this hotel and you will not be disappointed!

Hotel central loft is a lovely place to stay in La Fortuna. I recommend staying in a volcano facing room for great views of Arenal volcano. Great staff and attention to detail. For example, on my first day I ordered a fruit salad for breakfast; leaving the papaya as I am not a fan, on the second day there was... More

After years of living in the area and staying at dozens of La Fortuna hotels, I can safely say this is the most upscale, modern place that is actually in La Fortuna center. Easily walkable to everything. Spacious and very clean/modern rooms and extremely friendly staff. Included breakfast was ample and delicious. PROS: Location. AC. Modern boutique hotel feel at...

We stayed here for three nights on our honeymoon. We took an early morning shuttle from San Jose and when we got there, the staff were waiting for us and let us check in early. All of the staff members were very helpful and friendly, and all spoke English very well which made things smooth for us. The room was... More
