The Lodge is well situated. Close by there are a couple of nice coffees and restaurants. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The service is really friendly and helpful. Chris can provide a lot of information and recommendations for tours and is pleased to help you with the organisation.

Rooms themselves are ok, but the staff let this place down. We were given a complete lack of information about activities and what time they close so for example missed out on the cloud forest as this shuts at 4pm. Knowing this was shut the reception still booked a taxi for us which we then had to pay a cancellation... More

I stayed for two nights. Alba who welcomes guests and arranges your trips is absolutely brilliant and she looked after us well. All the staff were lovely. Breakfast of eggs and pancakes was freshly cooked and delicious. There is a supermarket and bakery nearby and you can walk to many of the local restaurants and attractions - although that usually...

I can only echo the statements in the other reviews. Friendly staff, well kept rooms, plenty of hot water, and a plentiful breakfast. Our room had a two person bath! Staff able to help book local activities, but aren't pushy to sell. The Lodge is suitably close to all the local parks, and is also handy for Santa Elena (a... More

We stayed for 2 nights when the weather was really bad ( well it is a cloud forest!!) we were extremely cold and everything was wet. No chance of warming up or drying out at all. Very helpful lady on reception sorted out computer difficulties and the breakfast was freshly prepared and hot. No hot water at all and rooms... More

We loved staying at this hotel simply because Alba made it easy to arrange activities and was a delight to spend time with. This is a little of a walk from the city center and is uphill but it's cute and clean.

We spent two nights at Historias Lodge and were really happy with everything. Alba SAVED us by finding us a room when we came to check in even tough there was a problem with the reservation. She was so helpful giving us recommendations of where to eat and getting a taxi to the could forest. Breakfast was tasty and filling,... More

We stayed here after a night at a much larger and more commercial hotel in Monetverde, which was overpriced and quite soul-less. We were immediately welcomed by Alba who showed us to our rooms, which were clean and well appointed (and 1/2 of the price of one room at the other place). We could finally relax and get ready to...

My husband and I stayed at Historias Lodge and really loved it. Everyone is so welcoming and helpful. They treated us like part of their family. It is a good price and nice accommodations. I really liked the shower! I would recommend it highly.
