My room was very, very clean and had an awesome hot shower with great water pressure. The staff were friendly and helpful and it was a good place to stay. It was a bit of a walk from the downtown area, but that is most of monteverde, so not abig deal.

My husband and I enjoyed a brief but pleasant stay at Historias Lodge. The value for the money was perfect- clean rooms with screens on the windows to prevent bugs from entering, large spacious bathrooms, strong wifi and hearty quickly-prepared breakfasts. Thais, the manager, was the real gem of this place as she went out of her way to organize...

Historias Lodge is a rare find.

All you need for groceries or restaurants are around the corner by foot....

Lovely big clean modern rooms. Patchy hot water – none at all during peak shower times, but this seems to be standard in Central America. Good wi-fi. It’s in an area where there are many hotels hidden among the trees, it’s a fair walk to town – 20/30 minutes and quite steep. You can get a taxi one way for...

Stayed here as part of a group tour and made to feel very welcome by all the staff, but especially Thias. Beds comfy and fridge in room a bonus. Would recommended and there is a super market around the corner, a bakery nearby and a couple of restaurants.
