We were traveling across Costa Rica last week. Our package deal included 2 nights in "Hotel La Fortuna".
We were first not convinced about the quality of this place as it was not mentioned in Lonely Planet + did not find any review / comment online about that place, but the travel agent said it was because the hotel had been re-opened after renovation.
When we got there, we were delighted to see the hotel exceeded our expectations. A lot of places in Costa Rica call themselves hotel but are actually hostels. Hotel La Fortuna is an hotel that would easily be rated 3*/4* in Western European countries,
The place is right in the centre of la Fortuna nearby restaurants, supermarkets, tour operators and in front of an affordable laundry that can wash your clothes within 2 hours (very useful after adventure activities). There is an elevator, rooms are reasonable size with TV, air-conditioning and VERY clean. You even can get a room with the view on the Arenal volcano! Also, staff is very helpful and friendly.
Another advantage is that the internet is free for hotel guests. A lot of hotels with that level of standard charge about $1 for 30mins usage.
The only downside is that nights are not always calm but this is because of the hotel location.
