The hotel is cute and has a cozy feel to it. However, we first booked a room on the first floor and it was of course raining. The room had an uncomfortably strong smell of mildew. If I recall correctly the converted "house" was in a hill so the entrance to our room was from the ground but it was kind of like being in a basement. The rooms was dark and we had very tiny windows. The next day we asked for a room on the upper floors. We were told the only room that was left was very small but we took it bc the mildew in the other room was terrible. The second room definitely was small (we literally crawled over our luggage) but cute and we had no problems otherwise. They cook your breakfast to order and assist with directions around the city and out of the city. Overall, once we switched rooms we enjoyed it, esp since it was one of the cheapest places we stayed in CR. The location is down a dirt road and is pretty quiet, esp @ night. We even saw a sloth hanging out in the trees right down the road.
I also highly recommend Sofia's Restaurant in Monteverde, not too far from Claro de Luna. I can't remember exactly why, but Sofia's was one of the most memorable restaurants I've ever been to, literally, in the world. It's simple Costa Rican fusion, but they had such great blends of foods, and I especially remember their cream soup. It is also down a long dirt road, much like most places in Monteverde.
