There we were in need of one night's accommodations in the La Fortuna area during, of all times, Easter. We'd been at an unacceptable rental house so had to scramble. Using our cell phone, we were able to book this on a booking site. That was it for availability. It wasn't easy to find, but Alberto talked us in. Not easy because we'd just driven from Monteverde and were suddenly confronted with another Costa Rica town with one way streets, etc. to contend with. We didn't have much if any choice of rooms and got the handicapped room on the first floor. A large room with a large bath area. Not fancy by any means, but workable. Alberto arranged for us to park right in front of the hotel all night. Also there is gated parking across the street. They close the hotel area off late at night and also have a guard. So it's pretty safe. A nice street to be on. Right across the street from the hotel is a little eating place - I can't remember the name - reasonable prices and good food. Very friendly as well. We also ate a good breakfast there. I wouldn't recommend the hotel breakfast. The outside eating area is in the shade, though, and has plenty of tables just to sit there. Almost next door is a nice super mercado. You have a great view of the volcano from anywhere on the street, and the town square is just at the corner a half block away and across the street diagonally. A nice fashion shop on the same corner, and a few nice boutiques just around the corner on the main street - just keep on the same sidewalk, don't cross the street for them. Some great buys to be had. A quality farmacia is across the main street from the boutiques. La Fortuna is a nice town. Looks a little scruffy and some strange characters here and there but overall an enjoyable visit. As you probably know by know, the volcano is not doing anything (2013) but is still an amazing sight.
