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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

The accommodation is fine but to be honest I have been disappointed with the value in Costa Rica generally. A family room cost us nearly $150, it's a lot for what you get in my opinion. But it is a typical price for this area. Staff were friendly, room large but basic and a a little tired.breakfast was ample

We enjoyed our stay in Room 20, the shower area was large as was the room. We had a fridge in the room, good for keeping water cold and also our yoghurt for breakfast. It was a good 20 mins walk into the village with a couple of hills to climb on the way back. Good exercise! The young boy... More

The rooms were clean and functional but there was very little pressure from the shower. The breakfast wasn't great and there were dogs in the kitchen and sitting begging for food when we were served which was off putting. The staff were good in helping to organise our transport and activities.
