Beautiful wood and great big ivy plants greet you here at Historias. The rooms are cool, beds are more than comfortable enough, and breakfast feels like you are at your moms house. Alba is very friendly and helpful and the wifi reaches all the way to across the couryard and up to the balcony. Another plus is the short walk to town (just watch out its downhill going but big uphills on the way back)

What can I say! Alba was extremely accommodating, loved her and the staff. Due to the weather change in CR I came down with a cold and Alba and he staff made me a homemade remedy that did wonders for me! The rooms are charming and spacious. And the breakfast yummy!! I definitely recommend this hotel if you are staying in Monteverde.

I didn't stay at Historias because Alba didn't have a room available for the 4 nights we needed. But, she was so warm and quick to respond to emails that I decided to stay connected. She arranged our transportation to and from Monteverde through Roy Varelas (her husband who runs a taxi/transport service) who we felt very comfortable travelling with both locally and to and from the airport. This is very much a family business and the Brenas are wonderful people. I also met Alba's brother, Luis, for whom Historias is a private labor of love. When I visited Alba, we met in the main area where guests eat their morning breakfast while hummingbirds feed right outside the big windows. Alba also arranged a guided tour in Curi Cancha with Danilo who I later learned is also her brother as well as a popular guide in the Monteverde area. (I had asked for Danilo based on a review so no deception here.) All in all, I recommend Alba's services and believe we would have been happy at Historias had she had room.

Room Tip: Had we stayed here I would have requested a 2nd floor room on a corner.

The pictures do not disappoint, and while it is a little futher away from the shops and restaurants, the walk is quite picturesque and shorter than expected. Loved the service, Alba is super friendly and always readily available with good recommendations!
