This is a lovely place to stay. The staff are very welcoming and the breakfasts were good, you help yourself to bread, coffee etc but eggs are cooked to order. I had the best fried eggs in 16 days here! I loved my room which was on the first floor. It was spacious and comfortable and there was a bench... More

A friendly hotel a little way away from the centre with a short walk means it is away from the hustle and bustle. Has seen better times and reasonably comfortable. Some areas are in need of redesign to give them proper purpose. My room smelt damp which is a problem for me being asthmatic, maybe all hotels in the area... More

We found this hotel close enough to town to be useful but far enough away to escape the noise. We had a bottom floor room next to the dining room so it could get a bit noisy from people leaving/coming home from tours. The wifi is great and the showers both hot and with great pressure! Downside was the doors... More

While visiting Monte Verde, I stayed at Historias Lodge. The staff was EXCELLENT, could speak and understand English. The rooms were CLEAN, the food was GREAT. I had trouble with my transportation, and they helped me to fix it. It was within walking distance of restaurants, stores, etc. They made me feel at home.

We were greeted by Alba Brenes when we arrived. Alba was an absolute joy. I can't say enough about Alba. The rooms are basic, but comfortable and clean. Breakfast is delicious and fresh. This family owned lodge is a great value. I would highly recommend staying here if you go to Monteverde.

On a back street in Santa Elena this great little hotel will meet all your needs. The staff is so friendly and cheerful, rooms are clean and beds are comfortable, what more do you need?! Breakfast was not cooked until you were ready to eat and it was always served with a smile. Within walking distance of some good restaurants... More

This includes orange juice, water, coffee, gallo pinto, eggs, pancakes, toast with jam and/or butter, cereal, and various cut fruits. Rooms are basic but clean. Ants are to... More

There are two parts to this review. The first is about the place itself. Our room was very large, with four beds including a king sized one. Cost is modest, and a family would find this an amazing bargain. Beds are comfortable, walls provide privacy, breakfast is quite good, and the place is clean and well kept. The second element...

When you find a gem of a hotel where the only focus is your complete comfort and satisfaction, you need to tell the world. The Historias Lodge is just such a place. It is not a 4-star hotel; it's a family business. Our room was spacious and clean, breakfast (included) was yummy with fresh fruit, pancakes, eggs and plenty of... More
