We really enjoyed our time in La Fortuna. The people of this town are very friendly. Hotel Oriuma is very clean. We were looking for a low cost place and paid $50 a night for a room in the back. Like others have said, the noise level can at times be a little loud, but we were usually too tired from the day to care too much. the lady owner was very friendly, her husband on the other hand was not. We always felt like he was glaring at us. Unfortunately we only saw the lady at check-in. Yes the Tv is small, but it works well and has several channels to choose from and many in english. We stayed here for the first 3 days of our 10 day trip and did not have a tv again until our last night when we returned to San Jose for our early morning flight. Who needs a TV when you are in such a beautiful place!
Plus' of this are; Location, location, location, good beds, very clean and has a lock box, also excellent view of the Valcano from the top level on the front side, and they have provided a nice bench to sit on and enjoy the view. They also provide a locked parking lot.
Negatives = noise level (its not constant)
