A beautiful property. On arrival, I (and other guests) were treated to a glass of refreshing fruit juice. The hotel has a world-class restaurant (I gorged myself on the grilled salmon three times). Not a speck of dirt or dust anywhere; everything shining clean. Room has a delightful little enclosed patio with a fountain. The marvelous courtesy and hospitality of the entire hotel staff never faltered. Reception staff extremely helpful and knowledgeable about local attractions and arrangement of tours. Excellent small gift shop on premises. Room with lovely dark wood furniture (including the bedstead) is as far from Art Van schlock as one can get. Quiet ceiling fan in room and in patio. Bathroom tub-shower edge is wide and there's no grab bar -- be careful.

- Situated on a shady street just off Paseo Colon, San Jose’s main thoroughfare, Hotel Grano de Oro is a true oasis, a sanctuary in the heart of the city. Converted from a Tropical Victorian mansion, the 40-room hotel maintains the warmth and comfort of a private home.Hallways lined with period photographs and original art meander through the building and present lush tropical flower arrangements and luxurious plants at every turn. Spanish tile fountains grace intimate atriums, ensuring that one is never far from the soothing melody of falling water. The entire Hotel is non-smoking. Restaurant Grano de Oro merges Costa Rican tropical with European cuisine under the expertise of our French chef Francis Canal. Once a simple cafe, this restaurant has evolved into one of San Jose’s finest dining establishments, frequented by locals and tourists alike.
