Gorgeous hotel.. Looked like a palace. Quiet and off the beaten path, yet walking distance to shopping center of San Jose. Food was fantastic..especially the appetizers. The pancakes with caramelized plantains and macadamia nuts was decadent. We stayed for 3 days total at the beginning and end of our trip through Costa Rica and both rooms were perfect in every...

This was an outstanding hotel. The rooms were nice, but what really stood out was the French restaurant. The food and service were excellent. A hop on hop off tour bus has this hotel as a stop. It runs all day, and is convenient.

The hotel is attractive and comfortable. If we had plans to stay in San Jose for a few days, it would be an excellent choice. As it happens, we were there only one night, in transit between flights. From that point of view, the 30-minute drive from the airport in the evening, and back again next morning, in heavy traffic,... More

this is a nice find in San Jose. The rooms are very nice and have excellent beds. Our bath was a little small, toilet, tub, sink all in one room. beautiful hardwood floors. Staff was very attentive. The restaurant is beautiful and we only had breakfast which was disappointing, the eggs benedict was sad. And we had room service twice,... More

A city hotel with luxuriously appointed common rooms and a beautiful restaurant. The restaurant prepares sophisticated cuisine as well as having a comprehensive wine list. The room we had was good for a city hotel but not great. The hot tubs were more warm than hot but located in a beautiful roof garden.

Beautiful hotel throughout with friendly, professional service. Rooms and beds aren't huge, but are clean, comfortable and high spec, with beautiful private sections outside. We didn't try the spa, but what we did see we can't fault at all.

You should stay here in San Jose, very clean, nice architecture and its close from all the museums and restaurants, at certain point in the afternoon could get a little noisy, but overall it's a good place to stay

I have nothing bad to say about this hotel, everything was great but when you pay $400 a night you expect things to be amazing! The restaurant is beautiful however the service and food could use some love. The carpets through the hotel should be upgraded and a bellboy should take your bags upon arrival. I would be happier to... More

The Hotel Grano de Oro was simply wonderful. We had meant for it to be a brief stopover after a long travel day, but found ourselves wishing we could stay longer. We were traveling as a family group and we were welcomed warmly even though we arrived at close to midnight. Fresh fruit drinks were prepared for us before we... More

GDO offers an elegant break from the hustle of San Jose, convenient for both the city and airport alike. The hotel has well appointed rooms to calm and relax. We had a bubbling fountain in our most recent room... The restaurant has excellent dining around the courtyard with a good wine list and impeccable service.
