The hotel is very nice and clean, and in an excellent location. Free continental breakfast included. Will recommend. The room was spacious, had a tv, AC, balcony and large clean bathroom. Walking distance to many restaurants.

Stayed 3 nights. Modest room, no fridge and small but comfortable. Right in the middle of La Fortuna - great access to good food. Street noise can be a little much but settles down by 10 pm. The front desk saved the day when we missed our connection back to San Jose and helped us get a flight on Nature Air.

If you would like to live in the town and in a very clean and pleasant hotel, you do not need to look any further.

The rooms are very clean, the reception desk is very helpful with tours (they remembered my name - the only place where the receptionist welcomed me by my first name two days later; thank you, Manrique), the breakfast is simple but good (but not fast if there are a lot of customers), the building is quite new, and the rooms are quite spacious (even the cheapest ones).

My room was not ready when I arrived. However, the issue was resolved very quickly and I was even offered a minor room upgrade to another room that was ready (I declined - did not have much time for key swap and needed to head out).

Room Tip: Some rooms are with a good Arenal view and some rooms are with roof equipment view - pick the one yo...

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!
