This hotel was recommended to us by the company which designed our tour package. It is located in downtown San Jose and it is certainly the hotel of choice for the downtown of San Jose itself, although there may be other hotels in the suburbs of San Jose which may have advantages lacking in the Grano de Oro, specifically spacious grounds and/or outdoor recreation opportunities. The Grano do Oro has no swimming pool or tennis court, for example. However, it is a very charming hotel. The original hotel was located in a Victorian house which has been progressively expanded in a manner which is very tasteful and was cleverly done. The result is a maze like structure which permits the illusion of great privacy in each room. There are several courtyards upon which the rooms look out so that guests feel that they are in a little village of their own. The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms are very well appointed, with full bath tubs as well as showers. In spite of being downtown, the rooms are quiet. The restaurant associated with the hotel is touted as the best restaurant in San Jose. I have no way of knowing if this is true, but the hotel's restaurant is very good indeed. I highly recommend the Hotel Grano de Oro to anyone staying in Costa Rica's capital.
