When we arrived at this lovely little hotel, after a hunt on the back streets of Santa Ana/Piedades (later to find very easy access from the highway), we were delighted that antiquity was still valued in Costa Rica. Here is a pleasant oasis within a fast modern city and features a large charming pool, climbing bougainvillea, orchids growing on tree... More

We stayed at this lovely hotel the first and last night of our trip to Costa Rica. The hotel has lovely antique pieces throughout the property. It is clean, beautifully situated over looking the city and quite comfortable. The meals are delicious and beautifully presented. What makes it a place to return to is the staff.... Especially Elizabeth! She is... More

Canal grande has an excellent staff. They are very helpful and speak English very well. The rooms were roomy and clean. Very nice property. Although the hotel itself is nice the area is very secluded and there is not much to do around there. We were very dating and walked through the streets exploring. But if you are not like... More

Really friendly atmosphere all over the place. A safe place where one can relax totally and forget about thieves or other unpleasant characters. Helpful staff 24/7 a day, and interesting persons that work at the hotel. The food at the Italian restaurant is high class. What more can I say? I shurely will stop by when I come back to... More

Hotel Posada Canal Grande was a GREAT place to start off our vacation in Costa Rica. The staff was also GREAT. Eliza (Elizabeth) is truly one of the best we've people we've encountered in our travels, and she saved the day when we left a bag on the chair while checking out. When we called from the airport, she quickly... More

We spent our first night here before going on to Nosara. We wanted to spend our last night here but the hotel was booked. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and spoke excellent English. The breakfast was excellent. The view was great and the location was safe. I would not recccomend traveling without a gps.

This was a great hotel on the outskirts of San Jose. I would definitely recommend it for your first or last day on CR. Great people, great breakfast, great price! English is not great and Wi-fi was readily accessible.
