I had a great time in Historias Lodge. The hoye is very well located, very nice and charming, quiet, and most important, the stass is really welcomeing and lovely. Estais, the gisl that received me, was really welcoming and helped me for everything I needed. I will definitely go back again when will be in Monteverde :-)

We LOVED this place! The owner was so helpful in suggesting and arranging plans and even transporting us at times! The night tour and the cloud forest tour (guide is a MUST) were amazing!!!

Stayed here as part of an Intrepid tour and the staff could not be nicer! Very helpful in every way. This is a small quaint hotel and you'll find the small amount of staff continually around the dining area. The rooms differ. Some on the upper floor are larger with more light. Mine was downstairs with limited natural light and... More

A cloud forest hotel with mountain views. Charming, rustic and comfortable. Native flowers and plants abound and line the walkways to every room. The rooms are large with comfortable beds. Amenities are minimal but adequate. The hotel is family run and are very hospitable. A great place to stay while in Monteverde.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Historias Lodge with my Intrepid group in August (2016). Not only were all the staff welcoming, but they were also really helpful and patient in relation to helping the group book activities and give us information on the types of activities that were available. Luis was super kind and opened his home... More

This place is clean and decent but I would never stay here again. You can hear everything from your room and I mean everything. From people outside entering and leaving to the washing machine running to people talking in all the rooms around you to foot steps upstairs and doors opening and closing. The noisiest hotel I have ever been... More

Really cute lodge. Massive, comfortable rooms, the fridge is really handy and the showers are amazing! The host was really helpful with arranging transport and helped me out when my shuttle didn't arrive by calling the company and speaking for me in Spanish.

We stayed two nights at Historias Lodge in June of this year. The owner, Luis, was very accommodating and a perfect host.

The accommodation is fine but to be honest I have been disappointed with the value in Costa Rica generally. A family room cost us nearly $150, it's a lot for what you get in my opinion. But it is a typical price for this area. Staff were friendly, room large but basic and a a little tired.breakfast was ample
