We stayed in the Gran Hotel the last 3 days of our visit to Costa Rica because of the central location in downtown San Jose. We enjoyed the nicely decorated square where we could watch the gathering of people enjoying the Christmas decorations and bringing their young children to feed the pigeons. The location put us in walking distance of the local points of interest. Our room was on the front side of the hotel and it was nice to be able to look out upon the square but beware of the noise. I was forced to wear earplugs in order to sleep. Even after the noise died down, the traffic light "chirped" the entire night. Taking a shower was a challenge - constantly adjusting the water going from cold to hot to hot to cold. There is a certain quaintness to this old hotel and service from employees was cordial, price and location was right but don't expect modern.
