“Decent hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2009

I would recommend this hotel to someone looking for a decently-priced hotel that is in a fairly neutral location. The size of our room was more than big enough for the two of us, it was clean and well-kept, there was a mini-fridge which was great for keeping drinks cold, we had an air conditioner that worked great and the bathroom was fine. It's located close enough to the town of La Fortuna that you can walk there (we did several times) and close enough to be a short drive to the volcano and hot springs. It's right next to a grocery store which is the best place to stock up on water and snacks, near several great and affordable restaurants, and across the street from the best-quality souvenier shop that we came across in the entire country. It also has internet at no charge to guests and serves breakfast (for a decent price) every morning.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2007

Don't stay at this hotel! The rooms are very small and smell moldy, THERE IS NO VOLCANO VIEW! For the same money or even less you can stay at Don Carlos with spacious rooms and a direct view of the volcano.
I think many agencies book the tours with this hotel. Don't agree to to stay at this hotel!!
