We stayed here for two nights in March 2013. We are a couple from Canada and spent two weeks travelling around Costa Rica. Hotel La Fortuna is an old hotel in a good location right in the town of La Fortuna, close to shops and restaurants. There is a Scotiabank ATM right up the street in the grocery store. The lobby has a restaurant which is open air to the street, there are computers with free internet access as well. The staff was very helpful and booked our Sky Trek Adventures package, as well as our Baldi Hot Springs visit, called us taxi's and provided other helpful info about the area. The hotel and room was clean, however our room was fairly small. $20 deposit required to use the safe key. The A/C worked fine and kept the room cool, and cable TV worked fine however our remote did not work the best. Bathrooms were clean with hot showers. Bed was a double, small for two of us and pillows weren't the best but it did the job. There was a storm at night which knocked the power out and the room got hot pretty quick with no A/C, and there were some weird noises and what sounded like a sewer back-up, but no issues in the room. Power was back on in a few hours. Breakfast was included and included coffee, orange juice, a plate of fruit (watermelon, pineapple and papaya) and eggs with toast served promptly in the lobby restaurant. Definitely check out the La Fortuna Waterfall close by, its about a $8 cab ride one way, $10 entry fee and a short hike down to the falls but well worth it. There are two nice waterfalls to check out. It was raining when we were there so the flow was heavy. Enjoyed it very much. Sky Adventures was also fun, zip line was amazing and ended our day at Baldi Hot Springs - dinner and access to the impressive hot spring pools was $34 and we got the Sky Adventure shuttle to drop us off on the way back. All is all is was a nice stay, its not the nicest place but did the trick for the price. Good value for the budget traveller
