I found this on Trip Advisor and never have the reviews failed. This place is the only place to stay in San Jose. The rooms are immaculate, the restaurant fantastic and the front desk and wait staff wonderful. You will not be dissappointed. There is not a swimming pool, but 2 hot tubs are on the roof and no one...

This place is lovely. The roof terrace was empty every time we went up. The rooms are well equipped but the real gem is the food. Though a little pricey it's very very good. The passion fruit margaritas should also be tried. We started and finished a 4 week trip her as a bit of bling. And it was everything...

We had an early morning flight so wanted to be close to the airport. The pictures do not do justice- what a gorgeous hotel and a beautiful dining room. We asked for a wake up call and it was received at the correct time. Dinner was delicious and the dining room is very romantic. Our room was in a court...

I selected this hotel to have dinner for Christmas Eve as it was my last night in Costa Rica and we needed to be closer to the airport. This hotel is nice enough, I would even say beautiful but it is not in a nice area of town. That being said, I do not think there is a nice part...

We spent one night in San Jose so that we could catch an early return flight. After a lot of research on Trip Advisor I selected Hotel Grano de Oro because it was rated highly. I'm not sure if other rooms are more spacious or our expectations were too hi after the other fantastic hotels during our trip but I...

After driving through heavy, heavy traffic from the San Jose Airport, our cab stopped in front of an oasis in all the chaos! As other reviews mention, the Hotel Grano de Oro was converted from 3 Victorian-era houses. Our room was "smallish" but very comfortable and a few steps away from a roof terrace. All amenities were perfect--beds, lighting, bathroom...

Second time in San Jose, first time at the Gran de Orno. This hotel is in the middle of San Jose, not the best area, not a bad area. but very convenient. The structure was formerly the home of a wealthy businessman, It's beautiful and the rooms are large. The staff is attentive and the food here is delicious. If...

My family and I stayed at the Grano de Oro for our last night in Costa Rica -- our guide recommended it because it is close to San Jose's airport. While convenient, it is also a very nice little hotel that helped us end our vacation on a high note. Grano de Oro is a small hotel, actually converted from...

Traveling through San Jose we stayed at the hotel for 1 night. The indoor/outdoor garden space combined with the physical layout makes this hotel perfect. Resteraunt serves great food and the staff is good, though we were seemingly forgotten about for about 20 minutes while dining.

We stayed here for the first night of our honeymoon. We were only using it as a stop over. The room was a little small compared to other luxury resorts we stayed in. Everything else was totally faultless. The room was clean and nice, the staff were very helpful and kind. They sorted a packed breakfast for us because they...
