My husband and I selected this hotel because we wanted to stay directly in La Fortuna town as to spend some time exploring on foot when not away at the national park. For this leg of our trip, we hoped to walk out the door and find groceries and restaurants without having to drive.
The Hotel Las Colinas met our needs perfectly. The hotel is centrally located in town, between 2 markets, and in the midst of many shops, restaurants, and art galleries. Being in town meant that it was a bit noisy at night, but we expected as much... if we wanted total peace, we would've stayed at one of the numerous hotels outside of town! All we had to do was turn on the AC/fan in the room and the night sounds were masked.
We reserved room #33, the junior suite on the top floor with a volcano view. I think the term "junior suite" is a bit misleading, since it was basically just a typical hotel room with a king size bed, a small bathroom, a couple of wooden chairs, and a mini-fridge. Still, it was great for the two of us! We also enjoyed sitting on the balcony, watching the action on the street, and admiring the volcano. The pillows on the bed were really flat, but otherwise, the accommodations were fine.
We really liked the courtyard (where breakfast is served) as well as the hot dog stand on the ground level. It was also nice to have access to an internet cafe. The hotel staff were very sweet and helpful.
