I stayed 2 nights in the Hotel Sueño in Monteverde. The hotel is very nice for anybody who likes a nice atmosphere, friendly stuff, clean rooms and a delicous breakfast. Adrenalin Junkies should ask for "Ever", he is very helpful to find for everybody the right action activity in town. Thank you

This place is good value for the money but it's a little tired. Needs a little sprucing up and maybe some new sheets. The ones on my bed were pretty this. Best part about this hotel are the people. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious.

It is at the end of the hall and comes with a huge window looking out across town and up the hill towards the cloud forest. Nice! Also as stated... More

Not a bad place - just lacking a few things. For instance, consistent hot water or walls that are not paper thin. It also lacks in customer service - not very friendly or helpful - I often felt I was an inconvenience to them. However, the $35 a night room, with breakfast included, I can deal with the other stuff.

I needed one night accommodation and they helped me out immediately for a price less than at a hostel. I had private room with own toilet, hot water shower, cable TV, opening window which was good as there was no air conditioning but cross breeze cooled room. No reliable WiFi anywhere in town that night but free WiFi usually available.... More

Found this clean, convient hotel when I got to town and could look around a bit. The rooms were totally adequate and after looking at a few hostels, I choose this hotel. It was less expensive actually than a private in a hostel. Had my own bathroom and TV. The free breakfast was very good and served in a nice... More

We got lucky and got the room on the 2nd floor with a big window with a nice view. The location of this room is also quieter because it's not next to the stairs or the hang out area. The staff is really friendly and the breakfast is good!
