“Nice place, great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2008

We arrived at Santa Elena in Monteverde looking for a place to stay. We heard a recommendation from a friend and came here. It is a really unique place with the huge tree inside the hotel. Two nice restaurants are available inside, both offer live music every night. The rooms are clean but the shower wasn't amazing. Also, it stays a bit loud at least until 10PM. Great location straight in the middle of Santa Elena.
All in all, very good stay in a unique place and good location.

We stayed at the Tree House Hotel as it was right in the center. The room was nice and clean, had a TV and balcony. For $ 40 what you would expect. The problem was that this was one of the most noisiest places I ever stayed.

The first night (Fri) a live band was playing until 1 am in a bar (Amigos) around the corner. Not sure what sound system they had, but it was like they were almost playing in our room.

The next morning we almost checked out, but the mgmt told us that there was only loud music on Fri and Su night. Well, the next night there was 'only' a DJ. Music was somewhat less loud, but lasted until 3AM and the locals meet in front of the bar (under our balcony) chatting and coming and going the whole night on their mopeds. It was impossible to sleep, although I am pretty noise resistant.

Whilst the Tree House is probably the closest hotel to the bar, we heard that other people checked also out from nearby hotels to avoid the noise.

Nice rooms, but impossible to sleep.
