So, unfortunately, when I arrived in La Fortuna it was cold and wet. Not what I was expecting at all. But the warm atmosphere and friendly staff at Hotel La Fortuna made it all worth while. I was always greeted with a smile and Mercedes and Manrique went out of their way to make sure I had a great time.... More

I concur with the review by “krisbsf” below. This too was my experience. I recently spent three nights at Hotel La Fortuna. I specifically chose a hotel in town because I wanted to be able to explore - walk around, shop, meet people, etc. It’s within walking distance to the town’s center and the post office, supermarket, pharmacy, and laundry...

This was a great place to stay as we didn't have a car. It's located right in town center- close to the banks, restaurants, tour operators, park, grocery stores, laundry service (across the street). There is free internet in the lobby with a couple of cozy lounging sofas for guest to relax or just wait for tour pick ups. Manrique... More

Great place to stay in La Fortuna. Good location, off street parking, clean, inexpensive (paid $50 per night), hot shower, free internet in the lobby, very helpful staff, breakfast included (scrambled eggs, toast, fresh fruit, coffee, juice). Ask for a room on the top floor - best view of the volcano. Also, the hotel offers discounted tickets to Baldi hot... More

The bad: the beds and linens suck... the wifi doesn't reach the rooms Otherwise, I think this is a good value. The hotel receptionist Manrique is a great help. He will definitely help you plan your stay if you're not sure what to do when. If you're not the Resort Hotel type and want to get to know the lovely... More

This place would have gotten a 5 overall were it not for two things. The first was a rather unusual shower with no barrier that made it almost impossible to not flood the floor. And service was ok but I sat for 20 minutes and then had to ask for breakfast. When our shuttle arrived, all I had was toast... More

November 2011 I received a Volcano view room for a very good cash price. The reception at this hotel is TOP notch Mercedes and Manrique scheduled all my tours daily and assisted with my next destination. Room was clean and had a large bathroom.

I spent a few nights in this hotel and this is really one of the best value you will find in La Fortuna. The hotel is ideally located (about 3 min walk from the downton) and you can walk back to the hotel even after dark as the town is really safe. The room was very decent (good shower, bed... More
