“It is like sleeping in a tree house!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

It was a different experience. The room was comfortable. When the bar scene stopped it actually seemed louder. The wind blew all night. It was like sleeping in a tree house... It took a long time for hot water, and one of us had a cold shower waiting for the water to heat up...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Our party of 10 people spent one night at Hotel Tree House. This hotel is located conveniently in the center of town, on a very busy main street, surrounded by shopping and restaurants. Our room was spacious and clean for 3 of us. The bathroom was small but effecient. As the name implies, this hotel resembled a home in a tree, as there is a huge live tree growing up the middle of the open air lobby, with the rooms opening out to the lobby. The staff was helpful and friendly. We had drinks and food in the well designed bar, which was good, but did not eat in the restaurant, as we chose to eat in town. Very good value for the money!

Room Tip: We made our reservations through Anywhere Costa Rica, which we highly recommend! Request a room awa...

Stayed for two nights, and can say you get what you pay for. It is right in the middle of town on the main street so you do hear the street noise of cars which dies down in the later eve. I didnt hear any clubs. Room was clean, satelite tv and fan. Two double beds and very spacious. Free wifi for entire stay, ask reception for continual password. Bathroom had a mouldy smell but had hot water and clean towels all the same. The price is the same as a hostel room so having your own room and bathroom for the same price is tops. Restaurant food is great. Staff are very friendly and prompt. Order the beef nachos and white wine, you wont be dissapointed :)

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the rear so youre not close to the road

Did not stay there, but ate there. However, that hotel is nice. Plus, the rooms were $25US which is unbelievable. If I knew of this place, definitely would have stayed. I looked at a room, it was clean roomy and light. Not a cheap motel feel. Definitely recommend it. Plus the staff were very courteous.

Fantastic value, huge tree running right through the centre of the hotel and restaurant. Great place to stay, right in the center of town, the hotel is an amazing value we paid 30$ for a room with two queen beds a balcony nice showers and a great view on the third floor, we couldn't believe what a great value it was. Compared to how great the hotel price was we were surprised how expensive the restaurant was, but nice staff all around

Room Tip: Or room as not loud at all, we were one room away from the street side, perhaps just don't get a...

The hotel is good, with nice facilities, we actually had the balcony room, so had a pretty good view of the town. My major gripe is that the hotel states it has free wireless access. This is true, however access is dependent upon a code from the staff AND is only for 30 minutes. Not sure how ethical this is. Also stay away fromt he TreeHouse Mojito. It is vile.

This is a nice place with clean rooms in a convenient location. This location has a cost. Loud clubs with rowdy patrons and an annoying car blaring adverts for some local club or something. The restaurant was quite good. The breakfast was among the best I've had at any hotel. But the noise was too much.
