This hotel is actually in the town of Santa Elena not Monteverde, a few kilometres up the road. Our room was quite basic with a small tv. The bathroom itself was actually quite large especially the shower! We were really close to the restaurant but that wasn't an issue at all for noise etc. The restaurant there is actually quite...

30 minute walk from town or a 4 dollar taxi ride, a pleasant hotel but nothing special. Rooms have decent beds, but the hot water is sporadic and there is no fridge. The only toiletries are cheap shower gel and shampoo and the towels are very thin. There is weak wifi but not in all rooms. Breakfast for 6$ is...

Dear Mr / Mrs. NLR. Thank you for your comments. There are certain features that do not comply with our standard: rustic 3 stars hotels from Monteverde.

Monteverde is cold and windy, but we slept very well. The room was a little damp, but I imagine that is difficult to avoid in Monteverde. The breakfast was lovely, and the hotel reception staff and very helpful in booking activities and giving general advice about the town. Definitely a good choice for a night in the mountains.

This lodge was part of an independent travel package and described as "rustic". The front desk lobby personnel were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was decent. The room was bare bones but did have cable TV with HBO. Close enough to walk to several restaurants, a mini-grocery store and walkable into town if you are athletic.

Stayed here for two nights while exploring Monteverde. Rooms were minimal but clean and comfortable. Monteverde isn't really a place where you lounge about your room, so it was fine for the amount of time we spent there. Staff were nice and we took advantage of their happy hour- 2 drinks for $5 USD! The restaurant food was average. No...
