We spent a total of three nights at the hotel during a seven day trip. The hotel and restaurant are excellent , as is the staff. The down side is the location within the city. The traffic noise level is very high with sirens and motorcycles all night long. Do not get a room facing the street! There isn't much... More

We only stopped for one night following our arrival in San Jose as we were moving on, however we would love to have stayed for longer. The hotel was beautiful and everywhere was spotlessly clean. The dining room was fantastic and the food (well, breakfast at least) was also very good. Staff were friendly as well.

This hotel is so beautiful. It truly feels like an oasis in the city. Grano de Oro has an old plantation feel with lush, tropical greenery and fountains in the courtyards.The hotel is pristinely clean and the decor is simple and beautiful. I enjoyed the touches of fresh juice upon arrival and the fact that beverages and snacks in the... More

We were met by the hotel shuttle, straight off a flight from London and were glad we’d chosen to use the shuttle as it was spacious and cool, and we were in it for a long time because the late afternoon traffic was terrible! The room was comfortable, much as you’d expect from a boutique hotel of this type. The... More

The service here was amazing! The staff immediately remembered our names and were super welcoming. We always had to leave early so they packed us a breakfast every day. Rooms are nice but showers should be updated. Overall I would definitely recommend for San Jose!

Lovely boutique hotel in San Jose! Charming patio with a peaceful waterfall that lulled us to sleep (and helped cover the city noise)! Gracious, helpful staff and comfortable, well equipped room. A pleasure to stay there!

Hotel Grano de Oro is an incredible hotel. We stayed there twice in the last month. The rooms are beautiful. To enter the first floor room, you walk through a beautiful indoor garden. The third floor room has its own private garden balcony. The restaurant is designed with beautiful natural wood. It is quite elegant. The food at the restaurant... More

This was a very pleasant surprise within what is an otherwise rather ordinary-looking part of San Jose. Everything about the hotel is tasteful and atmospheric, and that includes the lobby area, the elegant restaurant & bar, and the stylish guest rooms themselves. I received an enthusiastic welcome on arrival, and all staff who helped and spoke to me had clearly... More

My wife and I stayed only two days in Grano de Oro, one day at the beginning of our trip and one day at the end of our trip. We were very impressed with the hotel, the staff was very pleasant, warm and welcoming. The first room in which we stayed was very comfortable with a/c, free WiFi and cable... More
