We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights, and arrived at 2 in the morning on the one night. The staff sent us straight to our room, and let us fill out the forms in the morning, which was so nice of them. The hotel was 5 stories high, and had an elevator! This was the only hotel we stayed... More

The location was great, in the heart of the little town of La Fortuna. Rooms were basic but clean and modern. Staff were friendly and very helpful. We phoned ahead and asked them to book some tours for us which they were more than happy to do. We only stayed for a night, but the restaurant and bar were very... More

OK, first of all, I am SO glad that we only stayed here for one night. There was nothing overly offensive about the place, it was just that the hotel had SO much potential, and all they had to do was put in some minor efforts, and it would have been MUCH improved. The room was clean, a decent size,... More

It was right downtown La Fortuna, whereas many of the other nicer hotels necessitated a taxi ride to go to the downtown area. The rooms were incredibly clean and really nice. The people who worked there were very helpful. You get a great breakfast included and free internet. If I went back, I wouldn't even think about staying anywhere else.

Stayed here with my intrepid tour group towards the end of 2010. Fab location. Especially when the clouds clear & you have a fantastic view of the volcano. Hotel is in an excellent location - close to everything. Staff friendly & helpful. Hotel clean as a new pin. Free internet & fast wi fi which was great. The food was... More

La Fortuna was my first destination upon landing in Costa Rica and I stayed at Hotel La Fortuna for 4-nights. I had found a really good value, which included breakfast, so I wasn't sure what to expect in terms of quality. Upon arrival at the hotel, I was immediately put at ease as I walked through the inviting lobby: bright,... More

We enjoyed our two nights as part of out Intrepid tour. It had a great bar and restaurant with very reasonable prices and was close to shops. We loved the laundry over the road and great Internet facilities.

I´m writing this from the hotel´s computer. I wanted to give you a review while the experience was fresh in my mind. The hotel is located right off the town center. The main restaurants and guide centers are right around the corner. I really like the room I am in but please understand that I don´t require much. The bathroom... More

I travelled through Costa Rica in February, 2010. We stayed here for 2 or 3 nights. The location is excellent- it is situated right in town. Around the corner, you can have authentic traditional and a cheap Costa Rican meal. Loved it. Loved the front desk, they are very accomodating and they do not try to 'sell' you in their... More
