Charming Stay!

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 16 Aug 2017
We stayed here for four nights prior to travelling around Costa Rican countryside. It is a lovely historic property converted to a 'boutique' hotel. The room was a nice size for our needs with very comfortable twin beds. A nice touch was the free snacks and coffee maker in the room. Breakfast was delicious with fruit salad, small brioche and banana bread before the main breakfast choice. Nice to see a breakfast menu rather than the ubiquitous self-service buffet. We dined here our second night and the restaurant takes on a comfortable charm.The staff was so nice and friendly during our visit. Highly recommended.

The Hotel Grando de Oro is a really cool hotel with a great restaurant/bar and wonderful staff. During our stay we had multiple parts of family and we got to see three different types of rooms; a twin bed room, suite with water garden and suite with deck/balcony. I found the water garden room very cool and have never seen that before in a hotel. The staff and housekeeping was also great, helpful, and attentive.

The restaurant had great food that everyone in the family enjoyed. Waiters were attentive and the food came out hot and relatively fast.
Bed and sleep quality was also great with signs saying to be quiet, water fountain being turned off, comfortable beds and other nice touches that added to the stay.

While there was a lot of stairs and drops and ledges that was hard to get bags around on and people with limited mobility my have trouble with. I do believe they did have accessible rooms, but I am not sure of that.

Other nice touches like a lending library and hot tub really added to the stay! The hotel was beautiful and was near cool sights like the market, downtown and historic buildings! Overall experience was great and would definitely recommend to anyone!

We stayed here for two nights prior to travelling around Costa Rica. It is a lovely historic house converted to a 'boutique' hotel. The room was a good size with very comfortable twin beds. A nice touch is a coffee machine and free snacks in the room. Breakfast was delicious with even an amuse bouche of fruit salad, small brioche and banana bread before the main breakfast choice. Nice to see a breakfast menu rather than the ubiquitous self-service buffet. We ate here one night too and the restaurant looks very atmospheric at night. Food was French style Costa Rican. Try the Costa Rican chateaubriand - tasty and well cooked. Of particular note throughout our stay were the staff who were all very friendly, efficient and helpful - without being falsely friendly or over the top. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for 1 night at the beginning of our visit to Costa Rica and 1 night at the end (as we were flying in and out of San Jose). It is a delightful little hotel in the centre of the hustle and bustle of San Jose (but positioned down a side street, so very peaceful). The staff are all extremely polite, friendly and helpful. After a lot of travelling, we were greeted with complimentary drinks, many smiles and a room upgrade. We dined in the restaurant once and the food was very good, in smart but relaxed surroundings. The hotel is spotless and perfect for what we needed. Recommend.

Having arrived late into Costa Rica, this hotel proved to be just the right spot. Very large room with mini bar drinks and snacks included. Very comfortable beds. Up early in the morning and was given a lovely packed lunch breakfast as too early for restaurant.
Definite recommendation as friendly staff too.

Location of this very stylish converted mansion is excellent for quick trips to the Commercial Center of San Jose. Professional staff went beyond expectations in providing extra needs. Our initial room was too small for us, and we paid to upgrade to a larger room, which was still a bit tight for two travellers.

Room tip: Best to see the size of the room, as it may be too small for travellers' needs.
