Hotel Grano de Oro

91 Harper Rating

From Andrew Harper:

Attractive Old World-style hotel occupying a handsomely restored turn-of-the-century mansion in a quiet residential section of San José (a short taxi ride from the National Museum, National Theater and best shopping districts). Antique hardwood floors, tall windows, Oriental rugs and custom-crafted native wood furnishings accent 40 homey lodgings; opt for Vista de Oro Suite or Garden Suite. Rooftop garden terrace with lounge beds and two Jacuzzis; spa treatments available. Restaurant serves excellent meals in a cozy restaurant and adjacent inner courtyard; public areas include a wine bar and lounge. An intimate in-city oasis overseen by a friendly, helpful staff.

 - Andrew Harper

The excellent restaurant; the tranquil courtyard; the rambling, historic architecture.


The lack of turndown service.

Good to Know

The hotel is a 10-minute walk from the very charming Museo de Arte Costarricense.


Garden Suite, from $370; Vista de Oro Suite, from $540.
