Starting at $127 per night


Hotel Heliconia offers a combination of affordable rustic lodging, accessibility, and warm personality. The local hardwood construction is typical of a tropical mountain hotel, adding to the appeal. It is also one of the most conveniently located lodging options in Monteverde, Costa Rica. Amenities of the hotel include a restaurant, bar, free parking, and wireless internet in some common areas for your convenience.

The Heliconia offers a relaxing atmosphere and good dining. The two restaurants serve typical Costa Rican food as well as Italian. Soak the day's adventures away in the Jacuzzi or indulge in a calming massage at the in-house spa.

The hotel is conveniently located on the main road that runs from Santa Elena to the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve. Souvenir, shops, an ice cream store, and several restaurants are within walking distance of the hotel lobby. The Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve is only 15 minutes down the road.

The Cloud Forest Reserve is undoubtedly the top attraction in Monteverde. Visitors can enjoy world-class birdwatching or simply hiking through the cloud forest. Adventure junkies will love the canopy ziplines of Monteverde. They are said to be among the best in the world! Check out the hanging bridges for a mixture of nature and light adventure.

Rooms at the Heliconia Hotel are modest but comfortable. The Standard Rooms are basic but budget-accessible, providing a bed and private bathroom. The Junior Suites are a step up in both size and amenities, providing cable TV, an in-room safe, and most have a shared balcony or terrace. The Junior Suites are in two separate locations. The majority are in a building at the top of the hill, which requires a considerable hike to access the lobby and restaurant area. To help, the hotel offers a free shuttle service between these rooms and the lobby. The spacious Family Suites are quite popular, offering two single beds and a king bed on the mezzanine. Master Suites have a living room, balcony or terrace as well as a luxurious tub. Check the Amenities Section for full details on each room style.

**The Hotel Heliconia will be experiencing a hotel makeover from May 2019, with renovations that will be affecting all areas so the hotel will remain closed during those travel dates.**

Food was not very tasty. Had to hike up a "hundred" steps to get to your room. Walking to town was OK but walking back was torture. People very friendly and helpful. Rooms were cold at night with no heat.


Hotel had a long walk and the room had a bad smell
