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.

Good hotel in a nice quiet location. Short walk down the hill into town. If you are too tired to walk back you can get a local taxi for a cheap fare. Breakfast was good. Rooms were clean. The local tour companies will pick you up at the hotel for any tours.

Historias Lodge is a great hotel. Rooms were good and the staff were awesome It's located around plenty of places to eat, ATMs are close by and it's a easy walk downhill in to town. Coming back it's a bit of a hike... but you can catch a taxi back.

We had a very nice stay at the Historias Lodge. We are a family of five, and it was a great value to find a roomy, affordable place to all stay together. It's harder than you might think. If you're looking for a good value for a quality, clean, quiet room in Santa Elena / Monteverde, this is a great... More
