Excellent boutique hotel

Posted 18-Nov-2016
Pros: Very cute and nicely appointed.
Cons: WiFi was weak and occasionally lost connection or was slow to connect.
Location: The National Stadium and downtown are in opposite directions but a 15 to 20 minute walk away.
The Grano de Oro is an excellent boutique hotel. It has an upscale hotel with excellent service and very accommodating staff. The lobby and restaurant are beautiful and the rooms are very nicely appointed. We were in San Jose for a soccer game and the National Stadium is about a 15 minute walk from the hotel. We were told on arriving that the restaurant in the hotel was one of the finest in San Jose. We ate there one night and have no doubt that was correct but understand the very upscale restaurant comes with upscale prices (my wife and I dropped $120 [US] for dinner). If you are comfortable with the cost I definitely recommend it but there are many average priced restaurants near by.

Better Than Expedited

Posted 11-Sep-2016
After spending the week in La Fortune, we drove our rental from our Nayara Hotel so we won't haven't to rush the following morning to catch our 12pm flight. The drive through San Jose proved more trying than expected so when our room was ready before 3pm and we were upgraded to a garden suite, we couldn't have been happier. We rested all day and had dinner in the court yard of the restaurant - the food, service, and even wine recommendation was on point. I highly recommend staying here for any occasion but more so if you just spent a week in the jungles of Costa Rica and aren't looking to have your last moments of vacation spend rushing to make your flight home.

Beautiful hotel in the heart of San Jose

Posted 21-Aug-2016
Old world style but modernised. Great hotel with warm and friendly staff. The restaurant has an inside as well as a courtyard which gives a wonderful dining experience. Would highly recommend this hotel when staying in San Jose.

Pretty hotel

Such a lovely venue. Outside of central area so you will need to use transportation.
