Gran Hotel Costa Rica a Curio Collection by Hilton hotel, is an iconic gem in the heart of San Jose. Located on the Second Avenue and the walking boulevard Avenida Central on his backyard. Our hotel overlooks the National Theatre and is only a few steps from cafés, shops, museums and other tourist attractions. It was built in 1930 and in December 2004 was declared historical-architectural monument of Costa Rica, considering this building reflects an urban testimony of San Jose in the first half of the twentieth century. Downtown San Jose, lacks of an upscale hotel, so Gran Hotel Costa Rica, will be a very good option for leisure travelers planning to discover the city center and also a must stay for artists within cultural show productions. This hotel is a city icon and it will be the place to stay for tourist looking for the best. Colonial beauty meets modern technology in our stylish 79 guest rooms.

Three of us traveled to San Jose, Costa Rica from San Diego, CA to see a concert at the Teatro Melico Salazar on Feb. 16. I researched hotels on the internet that were close to the venue. There were many with ok reviews but none compared to the ratings of Gran Hotel Costa Rica.

Hotel is beautiful. Very modern. I cannot say enough about the staff - they are wonderful! Always helpful! The breakfast buffet is somewhat pricey but good. You can get their 2 for 1 special on Saturdays and Sundays. Well worth it then. Antonio makes great omelets!!!

Gorgeous building in a beautiful part of town, super cozy beds, silent rooms, impeccable service, excellent AC. Bar closes at 11 is the only downside! If you are used to 5 star NYC level of luxury you will not be disappointed here.
