Lonely Planet review
Perched on a small but steep hill in Cerro Plano, this stone lodge is a solid choice. The rooms are pretty standard, with good mattresses, pinewood interiors and high ceilings, but the service is outstanding. Renzo and Grace extend a true and warm welcome. The pinnacle of this place is the top-floor lounge, with a 180-degree view of the surrounding landscape.
Our independent authors have visited Hotel El Viandante and selected this as one of our recommended accommodation in Monteverde & Santa Elena.
