“Great Location, Worth the Price”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

Location is the half a block from the park. The rooms have doors outside. The rooms are clean. Hot water, internet and AC! Nothing super special here but its secure and definitely worth $35/night. The owner is super nice. I would go back.

This is an okay place. My visit started off on the wrong foot. No one was there when I arrived, I waited 20 minutes or longer. Before a fellow showed up. He went off on me when I mentioned my discomfort- totally the wrong response, I'm sorry, an apology would have gone a long way with me. He left, there was no one there the first night I didn't feel safe. The second night was much better. The bad taste bone from the night before.

I had a very noisy room near the main street however the price is okay and the service is good. It is located near the Fortuna town and close the the Central Park and restaurants. Another good option to consider if you are in a budget.

The hotel is located only a few minutes from the center of La Fortuna. It was wonderful to be so close to so many shops and restaurants without having to pay for a taxi there and back! The tours also know where to find you, so getting picked up/ drop off is simple! The owner was so sweet and helpful. We had to book a last minute shuttle back to San Jose and he called multiple places in order to find us a spot. The rooms are simple, but they have everything you need. We were given clean towels everyday and the air conditioning was wonderful after a long day of adventures.

We stayed at Hotel El Volcan for four nights, and enjoyed it. Location was perfect, only one block from the main street in La Fortuna. The price was also very affordable. The manager, Luis, was extremely friendly and helpful. He gave suggestions on day trips, and we were able to book directly with him. Rooms were clean. A/C and hot water worked well.

We would stay here again if travelling to La Fortuna.

This trip to Costa Rica was for business and this place fit or budget. It's a nice small hotel close to everything. The owners are super helpful, accommodating in every way. The rooms could have been cleaner but the being and bathroom were great. There is a meeting area in the center of the hotel were you can use the fridge and microwave. There is free wifi and security cameras for safety, although I never felt unsafe. La fortuna is a very safe little town. The beds in unit#3 could have been better
