Historias Lodge is a rare find. The front office manager Thace, and owner Luis, help make your stay even better and give great info on what to do in the area of Monteverde and Santa Elena, both easily accessible from this hotel with a 4 wheel drive. All you need for groceries or restaurants are around the corner by foot....

Clean cozy room with a balcony and view. Within walking distance to St Elena but beware road and sidewalks are very steep and often unpaved.Breakfast was individually prepared and delicious. There were several selections. Thais at the front desk was was very pleasant and helpful with sightseeing arrangements and recommendations.

Lovely big clean modern rooms. Patchy hot water – none at all during peak shower times, but this seems to be standard in Central America. Good wi-fi. It’s in an area where there are many hotels hidden among the trees, it’s a fair walk to town – 20/30 minutes and quite steep. You can get a taxi one way for...

Stayed here as part of a group tour and made to feel very welcome by all the staff, but especially Thias. Beds comfy and fridge in room a bonus. Would recommended and there is a super market around the corner, a bakery nearby and a couple of restaurants.

We stayed here during our stay in Monteverde. The hotel itself was clean and well built, one of the few places I stayed in Central America where I couldn't hear the people above me. My room was small but cosy and warm given the cold and raining weather. I had breakfast here one morning which was pricey but lovely. The...

Thais at the reception was really nice and helped us arrange all the excursions in Monteverde. Since an activity was very early, they prepared breakfast for us before the opening time. The room was really really spacious and cozy, with a balcony. The location of the hotel is optimal, 10 minutes away from town on foot.

Situated in a quite location a 15 minute walk into town and a lovely steep walk back up the hill on the way back!!!

We spent one night there, the room was very clean, the breakfast was very good and Thais was very polite. She made good suggestions for a restaurant to go for dinner (Restaurant De Lucia) and for the hanging bridge tour.
