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.

Really nice hotel we all had our own little areas of the lodge with seating areas outside. Close to the local shops and restaurants. Food was great and lovely big accomodation. Really recommend it! Excellent knowledge of local trips to go on can't fault it

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

We stayed for two nights, nice little place, private, hot water, clean, mini bar and safe. Only downfall in all my time in central america I have never paid more then 7 us dollars for laundry they tried charging over 30. It is not central to town but a grocery store is a short 2 min walk.

I loved the Historias Lodge. The family that runs the lodge is very friendly and always willing to help - Alba booked a horseback riding trip that I really enjoyed, they help with transportation, etc. I loved the family's friendly and quiet dogs hanging out around the property - very cute (and I am a cat person).
