“Great budget hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2012

Josimar met us at the office and went out of his way to be helpful.
Although the room was small, and pooly lighted, everything else was excellent.
The eggs at breakfast were cooked to order, the pool was imaculate and the water warm. Grounds were full of floral plantings and were well maintained.
Location was in the center of town close to shopping and restaurants.
2 computers avaiable in the ofice.
A GREAT BUDGET HOTEL

Room Tip: Select a room in the one floor section.

Hotel San Bosco is spotlessly clean; the staff is professional and polite and they speak English. The grounds are immaculate. We had a budget room, nothing fancy, but it was so clean you could eat off the floor. Great location, off the main street but only a couple of blocks to everything. Very secure and quiet. Couldn't ask for more for a one night stay just passing through town. Also includes free breakfast outside by the spotless pool, which was ok (but hey, it was free!)

This is a good in-town alternative to the high-priced resorts on the highway leading to Volcan Arenal. It's got a secure, courtyard layout. The rooms are spare but clean. Price is reasonable. Breakfast wasexcellent. WiFi worked only intermittently.

The Hotel San Bosco is located in the center of La Fortuna within walkin distance of the majority of the bars and restaurants in the area. The hotel is about a 20min drive to the Arenal attractions which is very convenient. The hotel itself has somewhat dated rooms, but they are very clean and well maintained. Each morning an expansive complimentary breakfast is served, which was delicious. The price, location, and friendliness of the staff make this hotel a great option for those who want to stay in the Arenal area.

Great rooms, luxury is not part of their priorities, however the price does not compare to the great attention and charisma of their staff, breakfast is included which (by the way) was very good! Totally recommended.

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel in La Fortuna. We had no problem checking in at 6PM, our room was available and ready. The receptionists are very friendly and spoke English very well. Our room was a bit small, one double and twin bed and a bathroom, but it was expected - anyway we did not spend a lot of time in the room except to sleep. Room was very clean though and bed was comfortable, the AC was strong, and there was hot water in the showers at any time of the day.
The location is about a block and a half away from the center of the center of the town - just far enough to avoid most of the noise but close enough to be able to walk there and enjoy what the town has to offer.
The scenery was very nice and maintained daily. The pool and jacuzzi was clean. Breakfast was really good, nothing special though.
The staff was great, very helpful in showing us what is available in town and the tours that were being offered.
Overall, I had a great experience in this hotel, great value and would recommend it to anyone that plans to stay in La Fortuna.
