A very comfortable stay
We had a very comfortable one night stay in a triple room. The reception staff was very helpful with restaurant recommendations and making a phone call to fine tune our tour time for the next morning. We were in a separate building, perhaps an annex, and our 2nd floor room was large. The wifi was weak in our room. The room was quiet, the beds were comfortable, the shower was good, and the room was clean. Breakfast the next morning was a bit late, but was very good. We were able to park our car right in the small parking lot right in front of the reception.

A restful stay at Historias Lodge
One word, charm! One can find quite a few high end lodgings that for the most part are not as successful as Historias Lodge in conveying something, anything. Historias from Lucho the one eyed Chihuahua who is a staple either greeting guests to begging for food at the breakfast area conveys a families vision of how they see hospitality. I had course to take a tour, and overheard a Spanish couple remark "oh what a charming place" something most people remark when they first cast gaze on Historias. It is a rambling two story structure larger than it appears at first glance. What is most eye catching is the beautiful passion fruit like vine that covers the entire second store in a type of arbor. The first level is textured concrete while the second floor is wood. The room was ample with two sitting chairs, a minifridge, cable TV, Wifi, a bathroom with hot water. And a marvelous plate glass window overlooking the shrubbery. The Location is roughly halfway from town center and the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve. Even though it is near quite a few businesses i.e. supermarket, bakery, restaurants it is very quiet. I had my most restful stay in Costa Rica at Historias. It does not have air conditioning but does have a fan. Luckily the year round cool temperatures keep it from being oppressively hot. The included breakfast of a plate of cut fruit, eggs, toast, freshly squeezed orange juice, toast, coffee and or tea was something to look forward to in the mornings.

Wonderful stay! The host, Luis, is incredibly warm and accommodating. He helped us book activities while we were in Monteverde, and gave us recommendations on restaurants to try. The property is small but beautiful; we were surrounded by greenery, giving the lodge a little bit of a treehouse feel. I'd definitely recommend staying here!

Great hotel, we loved it
Excellent hotel. Location was great. It's simple but very clean and quiet. Our room was very spacious. We were a little afraid that there was no AC, but it turned out to be totally fine as it's not too hot in Santa Elena at night. The staff was very nice. Reasonable rates. All in all a very solid choice for a couple of days to explore the region. We would definitely stay there again.

Awesome place, family like staff
So fortunate to pick this place to stay. Great customer service, family like staff, very nice breakfast. Perfect place to stay. The person at reception (Sorry, didn't get your name) helped us a lot. He has arranged a guide for us to visit Monteverde reserve. He has suggested Torilla's restaurant, which is 5 minutes walk, which has great food at less cost. Sandra has helped us a lot. Chef has prepared tasty breakfast. Will stay again, if we get a chance. Met a super friendly Canadian family with 3 kids. We felt we have met with another soulmate friends for life.

Poor 2.0
We made our reservation and I gave exoedia my credit card number to hold the room. It said to pay at the hotel. When we arrived at the hotel they would not take our credit card for payment, they wanted cash. We do not travel with a lot of cash and no where on the web site did I see that they would not take a credit card. I told them I had no cash on me and for them to cancel they reservation. They said they could not do that at their end, the hotel, for me to call you to cancel the room. IIt was late at night and I had no telephone to call you in the states and I tried to email you but that did not work. I do not want you to pay this hotel anything from my credit card. I am still traveling and I will call Expedia about this situation when I get to a telephone that will call to the states
