The rooms were basic, breakfast ok, standard one, not far from restaurants and shops in case you have no car. - very thin walls so you can hear neighbor conversations. Rooms are close to lobby area so you can hear all the noise from kitchen, reception or breakfast area. I wouldn't recomand this hotel to those looking to sleep well... More

The staff was wonderful, clean and comfortable rooms. Breakfast was delicious. Reception helped make recommendations. Just outside of the busy town so it was quiet at night but close enough to feel the energy of town. Great start to our vacation.

We stayed for three nights with our two young boys. The staff were very friendly and very helpful. Very helpful in offering suggestions about places and sites but not pushy at all. The owners take pride in their hotel and it shows- the place is very clean and the grounds are very well kept- the place felt like home. Great... More

The hotel is clean with rooms that are slightly small but have everything you need. Breakfast was very good every day. Nidia was very friendly and welcoming. She was very helpful in getting us oriented to available activities in the area and available to help set things up for us. The hot water ran a bit short in the shower... More

Well-situated little hotel a two minute walk from the downtown/restaurant hub for all of Monteverde and Saint Elena. About nine rooms, and those closer to the street will experience some noise in daytime but after dark, most traffic in or out of town pretty much stops. And this quaint and comfy little hotel is on the road in/out. I'm surprised... More

This 'hotel' has a few rooms, so not large. It is super clean, and provides breakfast for guests. The breakfast is of good quality, served cheerfully, and there was variation from day to day. We had Eggs/Toast/Plantains one day, then Eggs/Sausage/Waffles the next, etc. Each day a medium serving of fresh fruit accompanied breakfast. The rooms here are not huge,... More

This was our favorite hotel of the three we visited in our trip. From the outside it looks very modest, but inside it is modern, clean, and very comfortable. It is a 5-10 minute walk to the restaurants and amenities of Santa Elena, a compact but convenient and complete base for restaurants, stores, banks, and other services. The hotel is... More

I have to be honest from the beginning before i tell you the many good parts about this place: If you aren't a heavy sleeper or you don't have earplugs with you, then don't stay here because the walls that separate the rooms are thin as paper and you can literally hear EVERY SINGLE WORD your neighbours are saying.
