But the really great bonus was a fantastic shower that was...

We LOVED this place! The owner was so helpful in suggesting and arranging plans and even transporting us at times! The night tour and the cloud forest tour (guide is a MUST) were amazing!!!

Stayed here as part of an Intrepid tour and the staff could not be nicer! Very helpful in every way. This is a small quaint hotel and you'll find the small amount of staff continually around the dining area. The rooms differ. Some on the upper floor are larger with more light. Mine was downstairs with limited natural light and...

A cloud forest hotel with mountain views. Charming, rustic and comfortable. Native flowers and plants abound and line the walkways to every room. The rooms are large with comfortable beds. Amenities are minimal but adequate. The hotel is family run and are very hospitable. A great place to stay while in Monteverde.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Historias Lodge with my Intrepid group in August (2016). Not only were all the staff welcoming, but they were also really helpful and patient in relation to helping the group book activities and give us information on the types of activities that were available. Luis was super kind and opened his home...

This place is clean and decent but I would never stay here again. You can hear everything from your room and I mean everything. From people outside entering and leaving to the washing machine running to people talking in all the rooms around you to foot steps upstairs and doors opening and closing. The noisiest hotel I have ever been...

Really cute lodge. Massive, comfortable rooms, the fridge is really handy and the showers are amazing! The host was really helpful with arranging transport and helped me out when my shuttle didn't arrive by calling the company and speaking for me in Spanish. Plenty of places to eat really close by, including a soda and a supermarket. It's about a...

We stayed two nights at Historias Lodge in June of this year. The owner, Luis, was very accommodating and a perfect host. The hotel is beautifully maintained and we had hummingbirds right outside our window. Luis helped us book our tours while we were there and we thrilled with the guides and places he recommended. He also acted as our...
