“Solid budget option in the town center”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2011

After spending a couple of luxurious nights about 20 km from La Fortuna, we decided to spend one cheap night in town before flying out. For $30 total, incl. taxes, we got a room with one double bed and one twin, air conditioning, and a private bathroom in the courtyard. The room itself and the toilet and sink were clean. It's pretty spartan but is a fine place to spend the night. Also, it's conveniently located across from Lava Lounge and just steps to the church in the center, taxi stands, and more. Considering that a private room at Gringo Pete's is $7 - $8 per night and is small, hot, and has somewhat dingy bathrooms, this is a good alternative, particularly for 2 - 3 people.

Basic room with bed, desk with no chair, fan, or AC for $10 more, but the floors were clean enough to eat off of. Private bath, private parking, and great location downtown on Avenue Centrál within walking distance of good sodas and restaurants. You can negotiate lower prices for stays longer than a few days.
