Very friendly but not a typical hotel. The hotel is basically on the first and second floors, based around an openair seating area for breakfast. The reception is downstairs and forms one area of an unconnected arcade including a small restaurant, internet cafe and beauty shop. The arcade is very noisy early morning and late evening when it is opened and locked up with loud metal shutters. The view of the volcano from the hotel seems good in theory but it rained heavily for my entire stay so all I saw was the base and clouds. The reception staff and cleaners are very friendly, and great at organising tours and providing advice, especially Ivette. The rooms are unusual - a bit like a shop window with a curtain drawn across, with the bedroom visible through the thin curtains. My room had the clothes hanging rail and safe in the bathroom which led to care having to be taken when having a shower or wash so as not to spray your clothes. It was difficult to judge the activities of the town given the constant rain but there are several reasonable good value restaurants but no much in the way of bars. Plenty of ATM machines and souvenir shops though.

This was an amazing hotel at an extremely reasonable price. The staff was very helpful. Perfect for budget travellers who don't want to skimp on the comfort. I would definitely stay here again. The terrace was beautiful, a nice place to hang out in the evenings.

The best part about Las Colinas was the outstanding service at reception. Eager to answer questions and help set up tours and transportation, we felt like we had 5-star service with a smile. If you want to leave your itinerary open, and plan as you go, you can't ask for a better resource. The service bumps a 4-star room to an easy 5-star.

My wife and I were upgraded to the famous Room 33 when the hotel was overbooked. Wow. Amazing view of the volcano right out the front doors and picture windows, comfortable bed. It's expensive by Costa Rica standards, but if you step back and think about what you're getting in comparison to US or Europe, it's a heck of a deal.

I chose this hotel based on the Lonely Planet recommendation. It is good if you are on a budget but want the comforts of a midrange hotel. Unfortunately there were some problems: the bathroom smelled so strongly of air freshener it was sickening, the location of the hotel was a bit noisy (albeit convenient), and it was hard to get the hot water to work. All that being said, the rooms were clean, bright, and the beds were comfy. There is a very nice sun deck where breakfast is served (included in the price). The staff is helpful, although the reception desk closes rather early.

I agree with the last review that Hotel Las Colinas is an upgrade from hostels (not that I ever stayed at a hostel). The room was clean with air conditioning, a small refrigerator, a television for those moments for when you want to just relax, and there is a safe for your belongings. If you need to check your internet there is a internet cafe right down the stairs for a small fee. Close proximity to shopping and eating as well.

We had room 27 with a beautiful view of the volcano (room 33 has an even better view). The staff was extremely helpful and polite, and were able to answer every question. They were a big help in offering us a way back to San Jose other than the bus stop (that was an adventure in iteself).

If your looking for a bargain with a nice place to stay I don't think you can do better than Hotel Las Colinas. My and my travel partner thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
