We stayed here for just one night prior to being picked up to head to tortuguero the next day. The staff was extremely friendly, upgraded our room due to our honeymoon, and gave us a quick run down of the facilities. The room we were upgraded to had a beautiful bathroom and our own little backyard area with a fountain.... More

The staff were all extremely friendly, proffesional and helpful. The rooms and public areas were clean, spacious and classy. They have two whirlpools outside which we enjoyed in the rain. Breakfast was not buffet but à la carte which I prefer. The hotel is about a 15 mins walk from downtown San José. It is easy to find and it... More

It was so nice to arrive at the Hotel Grano de Oro after 10 days in the jungle and a day of white water rafting. We had our share of insects and bugs, especially at our last hotel in the La Fortuna area. The grounds were so beautiful with folliage everywhere you walk in the courtyards. Although we were near...

Deserved high ranking for this classic hotel. No it does not have a pool or an exercise room, but the rest is the mark of a high end hotel. The service is impeccable and helpful from the desk to the room. The rooms are clean and comfortable. One of the big plusses is the quiet in the hotel, located near... More

This is a beautiful and peaceful hotel in a residential area of San Jose. Relatively close to the airport and downtown attractions. Excellent customer service! All of the staff were very professional, friendly and always willing to help out. We actually stayed here twice during our recent visit to Costa Rica. It was very helpful to be able to leave... More

If it wasn't because of my friend recommending, I would never find Grano De Oro. It's located in a residential area, but just 20 minutes from the centro market. The hotel is a charm, every details from the bathroom to the bed is astonishingly beautiful. Besides, right next to the hotel just around 3 blocks away, check out Machu Pichu... More

Exceptional service. Very disappointed in San Jose. Will not put it on my itinerary next time. Room small but adequate and furnished nicely. Bathroom also adequate. Restaurant worth the visit. Best food and atmosphere ever

We stayed here for our honeymoon and loved it! It was very clean and we had our own private patio with a beautiful water fountain. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful. The roof top jacuzzi was nice and peaceful. Loved the decor of the whole place. Plus the restaurant was amazing! Great food and I have to recommend the... More

This has to be the most unique hotel in San Jose and probably all of Costa Rica. We stayed here five nights in a lovely room with a beautiful courtyard. The service was excellent. The restaurant is definitely one of the best in San Jose, with an international menu. I am an early riser and I thoroughly enjoyed reading the... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and loved the restaurant. The staff at the front desk was very helpful for all requests. Since the hotel is old we stayed on the first floor and heard all the noise above us, it was not too bad. An elegant hotel and a good way to start off our 10 day trip in... More
