It's reasonably priced, has a pool and whirlpool, nice staff and offers a buffet breakfast (which offered beans and rice, scrambled eggs, what I think were fried plantains, fresh fruit, orange and papaya juice, cereal, toast, and good coffee) but I wouldn't stay there again unless kids were in school. Because this place gets tour buses full of adolescents when... More

The place was perfect after 3 nights in San Jose without an AC, because the AC here worked just perfect! The place was clean, comfortable and roomy enough for 2 adults. I have one thing to complain about and that was that we ordered a bed for 2, like room enough for 2 inn it. It had one single bed... More

They were very cozy and had air conditioning ! (It was very hot and humid) We stayed on the second floor and had an amazing view of the arenal volcano there. We also took one... More

We enjoyed our stay in La Fortuna at the SanBosco Inn. It was small but only a block from the town center. There was a laundry across from the hotel that made it convenient to wash a few things so we didn't go home with dirty clothes! There's an Alamo car rental that we used to get a car that... More

We loved this hotel. It's not 5-star luxury if that's what you're after but for the budget traveler, it's absolutely perfect. The rooms were clean, the AC and wifi worked as well as anywhere in the States, the staff was especially helpful and kind. The location was perfect, right in the middle of town. We especially loved the pool (and... More

We stayed in the centrally located San Bosco Inn for nearly one week. It was very nice and clean and the people were very helpful regarding tips for tours and information about La Fortuna. The breakfast was rich and tasty. From the nice swimming pool we could see the Arenal volcano. We really recommend that hotel.

San Bosco Inn was a great choice for visiting the surrounding sites as well as the town itself, as it's within walking distance to most restaurants. The rooms and grounds were clean, and the staff was very helpful and pleasant. Price-wise, it is truly a steal and includes a delicious breakfast buffet. The pool was also a nice touch! It... More

My wife and I stayed at San Bosco for three nights as a home base for excursions in the Arenal area. The rooms are basic but had good A/C and shower. We were out and about most of the time so we did not need more in a room. There was secure parking which was nice and a laundry across... More

This hotel was absolutely perfect for my two friends and I. We loved the location as we could walk to La Fortuna restaurants and shops yet didn't hear much traffic at night. The front desk staff were extremely helpful in giving directions and calling when one of our shuttles seemingly forgot about us. Last but definitely not least, the breakfast... More
