The hotel is located at the west-side of La Fortuna and close to the waterfall. The staff in this family-owned hotel is very helpful. They booked tours and transport for us and also gave us a lift to the village center. We liked our stay in the hotel and also enjoyed the swimming pool after hiking to the waterfall. Also...

Basically a typical motel style accomodation. Very clean, decent mattresses and safe. Our first night was second floor closest to the highway, the noise was a bit too much to handle, staff happily relocated us to a unit furtherest from the road and that did help to reduce to noise to a large but not full extent. Breakfast was included...

We were greeted by the hotel staff who immediately started giving us information about the area and went well out of his way to arrange some tours for us. The room was a decent size and was very clean. Unfortunately the beds were not very comfortable and the street noise from traffic made for several sleepiness nights. We took advantage...

one of the hottest showers in costa rica (you will love it after having an exhausting hike on the cerro chato!!), very friendly and helpful staff! We recommend to stay here, it`s a family business, the rooms are big and very clean, there is enough space to leave your car savely and the restaurant round the corner is also recommandable!...

1st off I want to say, I was pleasant surprises by the friendly front desk and their willingness to explain the history this small town. The restaurant next door was just as friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend both places.

This hotel is just a few kilometers north of the centre of La Fortuna. It is on the main road which is at a grade opposite the hotel which causes trucks and motorcycles to make significant noise. We stayed in unit 10 which is furthest from the road on the second level. There is a good grocery store across the...

We stayed at this place for three nights just a few weeks ago, late January. It was clean and spacious rooms, looking out at the volcano. Staff was great and helpful. The breakfast was delicious. I would stay here again for sure. Very affordable, great location. There is a store right across the street, great restaurants all around too.
