Best hotel in downtown San Jose

Posted 16-Aug-2014
This is the best hotel in the area. Very nicely redone. Rooms are small as are bathrooms.

A Jewel in San Jose

Posted 13-Aug-2014
In a modest neighborhood, this small hotel is beautiful inside, well maintained and quiet. The staff was attentive, helpful, and friendly. An unexpected bonus was the hotel restaurant, which provided an exquisite meal in comfortable surroundings.

Just perfect!

Posted 22-Jul-2014
Pros: Everything.
Cons: It was perfect for us.
Location: The zone where it is located is not the best but we could go anywhere by car (we rented a car), we went to a very nice mall and downtown.
The hotel is gorgeous, the staff was so nice to us and the rooms are incredibly beautiful. It was a dream come true.

Vintage Hotel

Posted 11-Jul-2014
This was a lovely and elegant hotel. It was very old-fashioned and beautifully decorated. We stayed there one night before heading out of the airport the next morning. The spa was fun to use, and the restaurant food was delicious.

Gem of a hotel

Posted 09-Jul-2014
Our family stayed at hotel grono de oro for one night in July 2014. We chose the hotel for its close proximity to the airport (about 20 minutes) and relative safety of the area. The hotel itself is a renovated mansion and is quirky. We stayed in the family suite which was delightful. Our 3 kids slept in the main bedroom and my husband and I had our own bedroom. The suit overlooked the hot tubs, but still felt private due to the beautiful plantings. We had birthday celebration dinner in the hotel restaurant. The food was great and the decor was beautiful. Prices are a bit high for dining with the kids, but they did have a kids menu. The restaurant is a bit high end and you may feel under dressed if you dine in shorts and a tshirt. However patrons were in everything from t-shirts (tourists) to suits (business dinner). The staff was attentive and professional and I felt the pricing was fair. Would stay here again for sure!

sophisticated hotel in San Jose

Posted 04-Jul-2014
Pros: The peacefulness. the quiet in the room. the location to downtown
Cons: friendliness from the restaurant staff
Location: can walk to museums and the town
We completed our 10 day stay in Costa Rica at this hotel. We were there on the day Costa Rica played in the final 16 in the World Cup so we lucked out. The staff at the hotel greeted us with the fact that tv screens were being put up in the park to watch the game so we could not resist being part of this excitement. The staff from the bellman to the desk staff were all fabulous. We ate in the restaurant where we had a delicious meal but our waiter was the only unfriendly person we experienced at the hotel. The room is beautiful, comfortable, spacious and in pristine condition. There is a jacuzzi on the rooftop lounge, a small gift shop with local goods, and a small garden. Breakfast was another delicious meal. The hotel van took us to the airport but first schlepped us around town to find team World Cup tee shirts for our grandchildren. The driver was incredible in his help on our mission.
