This is a wonderful little hotel on the edge of town. The best thing about it is the hosts. Alba is incredibly friendly, helpful, honest, and knowledgeable about local attractions. For instance, she told us to go to a new reserve instead of Monteverde and arranged an incredibly knowledgeable and wonderful guide for us. The reserve was great because it...

Our family of 4, including 2 teenagers, stayed 2 nights at the Historias Lodge for our stop in Monte Verde. Per many of the reviews, the best thing about the Historias was the helpful attention of the people who run the place - Alba was very welcoming, helped us confirm arrangements we had made for ziplining, helped arrange for transportation...

I stayed at the lodge earlier this month and wanted to share our experience. As a group of five friends traveling together for the first time we left extremely happy. Historias is perfect for small or large group (we had 5 individual rooms) and the staff is absolutely amazing. Luis and Alba are just perfect as hosts and were more...

I had the pleasure of staying at Historias Lodge with a friend last January, and absolutely loved it. All the other reviews say the same, but I will reiterate that Alba is a peach and Luis is so helpful, we couldn't have asked for better hosts. The hotel is a perfect Monteverde lodge, natural wooden paneling, cozy, large, and clean...

Alba and Luis are great hosts - Alba in particular was very kind during our stay organising us sandwiches for our transfer, orgainsing the transfer itself and Luis was also great for recommending the best operators including night hikes, zip lines and horse rides during our stay in Monteverde. It was the best place we stayed in Costa Rica, and...

Historias Lodge is a lovely, relaxing place to base yourself in Monteverde. Luis and Alba are amazing hosts and make you feel so at home that you won't want to leave. The rooms are large, clean and tastefully decorated. The breakfast is spot on and can be enjoyed whilst watching the hummingbirds on the bird feeders just outside the window....

I have been to the monteverde area many times but this year I was delighted to discover Historias Lodge and I will definitely return next year. The Lodge has undergone some renovation the last two years and includes rooms for singles, doubles and families. The Lodge is small but delightful, It is located in a very convenient location, close to...

We enjoyed so much a two day stay at the Historias Lodge in Monteverde. From the moment we arrived Luis made us feel welcome and took care in ensuring we were comfortable and enjoyed our stay in Monteverde. We had a great day walking the forests of Monteverde reserve in the wild, wet and magical stormy day that brought the...
