The bathroom in the room need renovation since it not functional and extremely old. Also don't expect hot water for your shower between 10AM and 4pm since they shut it down during that time. It also a little bit noisy due that you are on the corner two major roads. So overall if I had to go back to La Fortuna I would choose another hotel.

Downtown central location, not a lot of amenities, but you are welcome to use the pool at a sister property about 3 blocks away which was nice! Ignacio, Joy, and Diane were all great at the front desk! Ignacio took a lot of his time to help me book an ziplines excursion, and Diane helped me call the shuttle company when my shuttle was late. Great people, would definitely return!

Great location in this city. Can use updating. Didn’t like the rodent I heard in the walls as I was trying to sleep. The front desk did allow a room change.

Excellent location
Hotel was well situated and in walking distance of everything in La Fortuna. The room was comfortable but basic with small tv only showing Spanish channels. Wifi was free but spotty.

Good Location
The location of the hotel is excellent. Despite the room having air conditioner the window would not open preventing air circulation. The staff are kindly.
