“Cheap and convenient”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

We stayed here for one night and it served our needs. We had a second floor room which was clean and it had a patio off of the room. The furnishings were dated and the beds a bit uncomfortable, but the room came with a working safe and a non-working mini fridge. The bathroom was nice and clean, but towels were hard to come by and there was a liquid soap dispenser in the shower that was for all purposes - hair, body, etc. There were 2 chairs and a table outside the front door so that you could sit and watch the bustle of the city. The patio off of the room was semi-private and accessed through a sliding glass door. The staff was friendly and helpful and the breakfast was adequate (we were allowed to make alterations to the standard fare). It's not the Hilton, but the price and location were great.

Room Tip: Second or third floor rooms seemed to be the best.

We stayed here as part of a G adventure. We were supposed to be in double-occupancy rooms but they tried to get 4 women not travelling together in a room with only 3 beds and they thought that was normal/acceptable. It was clearly a double-room where they threw in 2 extra single beds so we could barely move around the room.
The room could have been cleaner, especially the bathroom.
Beds were comfortable enough.
The hotel did not show pride of ownership and you can do better for the price in the town.

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the street if possible

Fresh flowers accenting the room accessories are only one of the nice things about this hotel. It is conveniently located, the staff is friendly and helpful, and their tour operator is topnotch. It's a nice place to stay, and we hope to be back.

Room Tip: Our third floor room gave us a good view of both the volcano and the downtown area.

Stayed here when we booked a tour. This was the hotel that we got put up in. Clean room...... and yeah. If you are a light sleeper, don't sleep here. You can here EVERYTHING from down on the road. The hotel is situated on the corner of probably the busiest spot in La Fortuna. Staff are great, there is a tourist guide place in lobby. It served it's purpose, but wouldn't do more than a night.

I stayed in that hotel last week. I usually don’t consider that hotel during my visits in La Fortuna but this time I tried and i was pleased. It is a clean nice small hotel located in La Fortuna downtown. It has air-conditioning, cable TV, Wifi in the rooms, hot water, nice beds and even a little fridge and a balcony and not expensive. Good place to stay!

I knew Hotel Jireh sits right smack in the middle of the city so some traffic noise I was expecting. I actually thought for $40 the rooms were impressive in terms of the beds, the tv, having a safe and a bathroom. Agreed that it is pretty dated and is in need of an overhaul as the AC barely works... however I paid $40 a night. Moving on.

I too was shocked by the rooster problem that is here. Him and his friends were in full force very very very early in the morning. The road noise is loud and included a car alarm that some tourists failed to recognize belonged to them at 1 a.m. So between the ATVs, the rooster and the car alarm I'll admit I am tired. Tonight I plan to locate some earplugs and will hope for maybe a nap as well. La Fortuna is a precious town. you want peace and quiet.... go somewhere else but dont let the noise turn you away from enjoying the city

We decided to stay here being a group of twenty people wanting to save some bucks. At $25 per person a night I guess u can't ask for much. Rooms are clean and decent. Matresses were uncomfortable and it gets kinda noisy at night. Good location though, about two blocks away u will find "soda la hormiga" where u will find good food and the restaurant next to the hotel lobby "ghecko" also has good food but pricier than the soda place.
