This hotel isn't the prettiest but it is walking distance to a lot of restaurants and shops. We had the volcano view but didn't get to see a nice view since it was raining and really foggy. :( other than that the beds are ok and the staff was super helpful with all our questions. The lady at the reception... More

We booked a three person room on the top floor overlooking the balcony. The room was simple, clean, and functional. We had a safe. The staff was helpful, allowed us to check in early, and helped book a ride to our next destination. The lobby is open air which was nice and the location was perfect being right in the... More

Large rooms, free breakfast, which was tasty, and the place is in the middle of La Fortuna. Very cool settting, Volcano views, the staff can hook you up with tours around the area and transportation to tours and transportation to get out of town. The rooms were air conditioned, and comfortable. I would come back to this place. Pura Vida.

This hotel is very nice to visit the city. It is close to the city center where are all places for visit. It is in the way to CATARATA LA FORTUNA (awesome) and from its rooms you can see Arenal Vulcano. It is an old hotel but well maintenced and very confortable.

I chose this hotel for its location - super centrally located, close to all the shops, restaurants, town square. The room was cozy and clean, my only complaint was that though the shower is HUGE, the water tended to spill over quite a bit. Otherwise the room was nice and the choice to get a room with a view and... More

Overall it's fine. The room was comfortable enough. It had a slight smell of cat when I arrived but that dissipated quickly. I stayed in a volcano view room which was quite nice. Since the building is one of the taller in La Fortuna the upper rooms have a great unobstructed view. Really, you stay here for the location. You... More

We had a lot of activities planned when we stayed here so we weren't in the hotel much. We decided to stay here so we would be in town and within walking distance of restaurants for dinner.

It has a lift!!! We stayed two nights and had an internal room which meant no ventilation except for a window onto the lobby.
