Clean spacious rooms. Don't expect anything fancy but good for budget traveling. Good location - about 10 mins to downtown. Breakfast was good. The staff here speak very little english but it's manageable.

This small mountain lodge is a short 10 minute hike from the center of town. The rooms are large and the showers are really large. The true beauty of this hotel lies in it's staff. Really it is more like a family than a staff. This is a family owned and operated business. The ladies here cooked 6 meals for...

I love this place. I visited with a study abroad group from my university, total there are 26 people in my group who made this their home. There is wifi, walking distance to town (shops, bank, bars, café, etc) and the staff are wonderful ladies. If you are in the region, it is very comfortable and I always have warm...

Montervede is a spectacular place. We stayed in this hotel as a base to do the wonderful things like zip lining and to be in the rain forests. Wonderful. The hotel is quaint, but we were really put off by the cockroaches in the fridge, and how the owner just sprayed the whole fridge with food in it with bug...

An amazing hotel, really accommodating on your needs. I understand many peoples confusion derives from the fact none of the employees speak English. But a little goes a long way. Rooms were clean and spacious. The hotel was beautifully laid out on two floors. I also loved the fact the walls were thin so if you were going with your...

Background: Trudging along on a 3-week volcano trek across Central America, our tour group spent a couple of nights here in Santa Elena Monteverde as a base to explore the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve in Costa Rica. Among the relatively few B & B's in the area, it is rated as a 2-star accommodation. First Impressions: The average-looking glass and...

This is a family owed "bed and breakfast" with exceptionally clean rooms, friendly staff/owners, and great home cooked meals. All the rooms are within a main hall, but the place was fairly quiet, the showers hot, and internet (albeit slow) available in the main areas. I was traveling with a group, but I would actually chose to stay here if...
