“Luis and Alba really make the place great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

I traveled to Monteverde in July and found Historias lodge. This is a great place to stay at a great price. It is clean and in a great location. The breakfast is amazingly good and what really makes the place great is Luis and Alba and the buen perrocito Lucho. They make you feel welcome and help you get good deals on tours and fun activities. We even saw a 3 Quetzals with the great guia Danillo in Curi Cancha. Monteverde is a cool place to rest and relax and Historias is a great place to stay at a good price. The zipline at 100% adventura was also the best zipline of our trip. Thank you again Luis and Alba, Pura Vida...David

Room Tip: Tip-Ask Alba to give you her favorite room...

This place is a gem. The owner and his sister really made us feel at home. Alba was super helpful in scheduling our daily excursions. Beautiful breakfast each morning. They even accommodated early morning excursions by preparing breakfast earlier than normal. Huge bathtub! Remember to bring your own shampoo!
We loved our stay there and expect to return on our next trip to Costa Rica.

I've been travelling Central America for a month now and found Historias Lodge to be absolutely brilliant. As I'm travelling on a basic tour with Intrepid, you can imagine my delight in a hot shower, lovely bathroom and spacious, comfortable bedroom. The decor is reminiscent of an extravagant treehouse and the people are top notch. Finding staff who are truly helpful and care about your experience and opinion is rare. An adorably friendly little pup met me as soon as I stepped off our van, fantastically friendly staff took it from there and our delight carried straight through to breakfast and beyond. As for breakfast, I hope you're hungry. Suffice it to say it left the eating machine in our trip well fed and satisfied for $7USD. Staying here was a welcome treat and highly recommended to anyone in Monteverde. (Whilst there, be sure to go zip-lining too!)

My mom and I visited this place almost a month ago and it was very nice again, this was my third time in Monteverde and I still really like it, about the hotel is attended basicly for Luis and Alba ( two great persons ), they are super friendly and helpful with everyone at the hotel. Also, both know a lot about the Cloud Forest and always trying to suggest the best things in the area, nice room with the perfect breakfast and for a very reasonable price, besides downtown is located around 10 minutes away walking from that place. So if you are looking for something good, pick them and you won´t be dissapointed with Historias Lodge.
