Spent one night as we arrived too late to get to our final destination. The service was awesome. Our room was clean and had free WiFi. In the morning had a wonderful breakfast in the dining area and snapped some shots of the beautiful decore.

This boutique hotel has exceptional architecture and interior design of the rooms. The staff were all polite and accommodating. The meals (room service dinner and included breakfast) were all very tasty. The only notable downside which comes with the central city location was the street noise. Overall very pleased

We stayed at the Crowne Plaza at the beginning of our trip and at the Grano de Oro at the end. No comparison. I would definitely stay at the Grano again, I can't say the same for the Crowne Plaza. The Grano is a very nice property, much better situated, and much more quaintness. Rooms and hotel are very nice, clean, up to date, and the service was very good. Overall very happy with our experience at the Grano

We stayed just for one night and left too early for breakfast so can’t comment on that . The superior room was cosy , good air con, comfy bed, good toiletries WiFi was ok . Mini bar with free snacks and soft drinks was great. The jacuzzi and roof terrace were closed for building works which was a real shame . Good professional staff

Rooms were spacious and clean...restaurant food was great and the staff were friendly and helpful! I would highly recommend the hotel as a stop off before seeing the beaches or rainforest of Costa Rica!

Stayed here twice. Room in old mansion was great. Loved the front desk personnel. Restaurant was very good too but waiters seemed to have a bit of an attitude. The location seemed very good relative to the center of town.

Nice hotel close to central San Jose. Outside and public areas are beautiful. The open courtyard outside the restaurant inside the hotel could be considered breathtaking. The restaurant was very good and the ambience was lovely. The front desk staff was very pleasant and helpful.

Stayed in a deluxe room which was fairly small. Bathroom was pretty basic. Bed was ok. It was fine a short two-night stay, I really wouldn't stay longer than that. Didn't really feel the accommodations were worth the price, which was high for a San Jose hotel with no resort amenities. At the time of our visit there was major construction going on.

This is a pretty well-known hotel so it's easy for cab drivers to interpret when you tell them where you need to go. Located about 25 minutes from San Jose airport.
