Nice place to stay in San Jose

Posted 17-Jan-2015
Pros: The bed
Cons: Recommendations for other hotels
Location: Best thing in the city are...contemporary arts gallery, gold museum and walking around barrio Amon. The jade museum was very disappointing.
Wonderful hotel in the city with beautiful rooms incredibly friendly hotel staff and an adjoining restaurant that does wonderful breakfasts and a range of dinners

Hôtel de caractère

Posted 10-Jan-2015
Atmosphère reposante pour cet hôtel au style un peu colonial. Les lieux semblent chargés d'histoire. Malheureusement nous n'avons pas pu creuser celle-ci en raison d'un passage éclair dans l'établissement (arrivée très tardive et départ en fin de matinée). Le petit déjeuner pris dans le patio a été une parenthèse particulièrement agréable...

Lovely hotel, a great place to relax in San Jose

Posted 07-Jan-2015
A beautiful hotel, great location not too far from the airport and the main roads to the Volcanos. It was fantastic to arrive to Grano the Oro after 14 hours flight the rooms were specious and comfortable the team were friendly and helpful and dinner was delicious. The restaurant is very good and creative (we loved the fennel soup and the poached Salmon in vanilla) yet a bit pricy.

Beautiful old world hotel

Posted 10-Dec-2014
Location: Very near the central avenue and about a 30 minute walk from the market and other tourist sites.
Usually when you stay in a hotel with "old world charm", you sacrifice cleanliness or modern conveniences. Not so with Hotel Grano de Oro. The room was comfortable, clean, updated, well decorated, and incredibly charming. The open air spaces and lush courtyards make it a stand out. The service was exemplary as well. I would recommend to anyone.

Great place to eat too!

Posted 17-Nov-2014
Pros: How different every part of the hotel is. The building is so beautiful.
Location: The hotel is a stand-out in a very uninteresting section of the city.
We had the most amazing meal here as well as a very nice stay here. Very unique. If I need to say in San Jose again, this is where we would say. It was worth the splurge.

The gem of San Jose

Posted 16-Nov-2014
Pros: The rooms, friendly staff, food, secure entrance and self parking.
Cons: I did not get the sense that there was a full time concierge, however all the hotel staff were friendly and helpful.
Location: The location is a bit sketchy but so was most of San Jose. We enjoyed the National Museum.
As you drive to the hotel you get a feeling that you are in the wrong neighborhood. The immediate surroundings are not a place you would think to take a stroll in. However once you arrive the hotel itself has a grand old hotel feel, the staff is excellent and welcoming many of which speak English well. There is parking if you have a rental car and the hotel has 24 hour security watching the entrance and Parking area. The rooms are a comfortable size and have a bed and breakfast feel, they often overlook or are attached to small gardens. The restaurant and bar at the hotel are top notch, the food and service is excellent... I had the duck breast our first meal there and was duly impressed. While I did particularly enjoy the city of San Jose if you have to stay these you will love this hotel and restaurant.
