Clean and fresh hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Good sized room with air conditioning. Close to the centre of town for restaurants, laundry (across the street from the hotel and reasonably priced), etc.

I stayed there for 2 night as part of my visit to Arenal volcano. This hotel is located in the downtown core thus has easy assess to almost everywhere. The front desk lady is very helpful and can give you lots of good advises in adventure tours and local spots nearby. I stayed in a room with volcano view. If you are going to book the same type of room, you might want a higher floor meaning better view. Breakfast is not bad. Overall it's a decent hotel for the money I paid.

Stayed here for three nights as part of my G Adventure tour. Great location and nice, clean room with good amenities. We scored a room with a balcony, but a few in our group had interior rooms with no outside windows. The most charming aspect of our room was that each morning around 7 a.m. a group of horses galloped down the street herded by a shirtless guy in a cowboy hat. Seriously!

I've just concluded a 4 day stay at Hotel La Fortuna, it was an absolute pleasure staying there!

The hotel is located in the centre of La Fortuna town and there are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants within walking distance. It is also in a great location to explore the surrounding area.

Hotel La Fortuna really is a great place to stay, and the staff make it an even better experience. Manrique and Mercedes at reception were extremely helpful with booking tours, recommending places to eat and places to visit!

I'd definitely stay here again if I return to Fortuna!

The rooms are extremely basic, and lacking charm. The hotel is located within walking distance to all the restaurants and shops. The internet in the room was painfully slow but worked extremely well in the lobby. This hotel is not a bad choice but I would not return.

Stayed 3 nights the young guy at reception was quite a character. Rooms quite simple and I did not notice anything wrong with the towels. Air cond quite strong. No view unless you opt for volcano view which also has balconies and a higher price. It is in a great location in town espeically when you are taking the bus. Wifi and free comuter use in the lobby. You can book tours at front desk. Breakfast consists of coffee,juice, a plate of fruit then a plate of scrambled eggs and toaat. There are a few large grou[s at times at breakfast so get at your table a few minutes before 7 as you may have to wait if you are coming down at 730 or so. I really liked the place only one bone the safe although digital also needed a key and a deposit. I would stay again

What's Good: My husband and I just got back from our vacation at La Fortuna, Costa Rica and stayed for a few days at Hotel La Fortuna. The hotel is located in the center of town, so it's nice that you can just walk to the restaurants and shops. The free breakfast is also great-Eggs, bread, fresh fruits, juice and coffee.

What's Bad: The room is simple, the bed covers are very old and thin, the towels are very thin and have holes on them and some were smelly and not clean at all. Of course, we asked for new ones, but we got some more old towels. The hotel maid said all their towels are like that. For the price they charge per night, surely, the hotel could use new towels and new bed covers.
