The hotel Is alright but for the price is just average. It's loud we could hear every step the people took above our room including the toilet flushing. The rooms are alight again not outstanding and at the last minute we booked massages. The massage was average nothing outstanding so not value for what you are spending. The staff are... More

Spent two nights and the hotel organized a volcano/waterfalls tour. Twelve hour trip!! Restaurant was excellent and the rooms were beautiful. If we are ever back in San Jose, we will stay here!!! Ask for a table in the dining room and enjoy the inside patio for breakfast.

Last hotel of our trip and a great one! We got a free upgrade to room four and decided to have lunch in the restaurant. The service was so good, the setting so fine and the food so lovely we chose to have dinner there too. After a visit to the Jade Museum (recommended) we flopped and enjoyed the singing... More

We arrived late at San Jose after very arduous multi sector flights. This hotel was a true gem. We thoroughly enjoyed our room, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and, well the dining room, that was something to just sit back and soak up the ambience before even ordering anything. The meals were very well presented and tasted every... More

We stayed at the Grano d'oro in January 2016 and were not disappointed. Initial impressions were good with friendly staff and a nice lobby. The room was very clean and tastefully furnished with a lovely bathroom, with bath. The room had coffee making facilities, wifi and a hairdryer. Breakfast was served in the courtyard and is a la carte rather... More

I tried to book this 40 room boutique hotel for six nights during a ten day visit to Costa Rica. We were scheduled to be on a WindStar Pride cruise for ten nights. The ship ran aground in Panama in December and the cruise line cancelled the next few departures. We had non-refundable air that we booked independently so we... More

When we arrived at this hotel in our transfer car it looked unimpressive from the outside, also being in an area of non descript buildings didn't help. However as soon as we got out of the car we were greeted by the doorman who took us to reception through a very modern door access system. We booked a deluxe room... More

Lovely boutique hotel, interesting route to room! Good clean room with outside enclosed patio space. The building is lovely especially the dining courtyard and try and see the private dining rooms on the first floor - very nice. We had a superb meal in the restaurant with very attentive staff. Our only issue was the practice of pricing in Colones... More

The Hotel Grano de Oro is all style and substance. We stayed here over New Year and had a luxurious pause before a busy tour around Costa Rica. The staff are friendly, food is exceptional, wifi is great and landscaping just gorgeous. It is in a pretty rundown neighbourhood, but we felt safe walking around and it is convenient to... More

This hotel was great!! We loved the look of the hotel and the service provided. We had our New Years Eve dinner there and it was AMAZING!!! I would love to go back and eat/drink there. The room was cute but a little small...I would still go back in a heartbeat.
