The hotel is in the heart of Fortuna. The rooms are very basic but the beds need new mattresses and the pillows are very old and smelly. The TV remote control did not work. In the bathroom there is no window and needs extra ventilation. The manager is friendly but that was not enough for me to stay there never again. The hotel is a bit pricey.

This small hotel is well situated in the centre of La Fortuna and the owner is friendly. The room is fine,clean with thin but clean bedding and towels. But the bathroom floor corners were greasy and grubby, although the toilet,shower and basin were fine. A cockroach made a brief appearance. So I would just say the owner should take a bucket of hot water and a brush to the floor and get rid of the soap dispenser dripping orange stuff over the basin.

the hotel manager is super helpful and friendly, and is always prepared to offer advice and information. He can also help with booking tours (hot springs was good) and transfers to other places in Costa Rica. The rooms are a bit basic, but have good AC, are clean and have comfy beds. Overall very good value in this area.

Luis at the front desk was incredible! He was polite, patient, and very accommodating. He helped us book many excursions, despite our several changes of plans. He also had some wonderful recommendations regarding activities to do in the area. The room was very clean and well-kept. The hotel is simple yet has everything you need, especially for the price. It's perfectly located just one block away from the main downtown. This gives you easy access to the city without the noise that comes from it. Would absolutely recommend!
