Boutique hotel in San José

Discover San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica, from this luxury boutique hotel. The city has a compact and busy city centre with narrow shopping streets. There are lots of markets where exotic fruit and vegetables are sold. A visit to the ‘Mercado Central’ is recommended if you want to experience the local city culture. Here, food and non-food articles are sold from numerous little stalls. If you’re in San Jose on Saturday morning, a visit to the organic ‘Feria Verde’ is a nice way to soak up the city’s characteristic culture. 

In recent years, San Jose has undergone a facelift. Now, there’s a vibrant restaurant scene in Barrio Escalante, which is a great area to go to for dinner. It is recommended to plan a city tour through the city centre, to see the interesting, historical buildings and to get a taste of local city life.

Hotel Grano de Oro

Hotel Grano de Oro is a beautiful boutique hotel in the center of San José. The Canadian owners have been living in Costa Rica now for more than 25 years, so they call the country their home now.

Hotel Grano de Oro is partly located in a traditional Costa Rican townhouse that has been extended and modernized over the years, but has retained its historic charm.

Top hotel with very good kitchen, ideal to start the journey. Very good service. We have been from San Jose to the La Paz Waterfall Gardens.
Here we had Olman as a guide who was super. We were lucky that we were only three of us so we got a lot of info and he really could answer all our questions. Very good guide and a breathtaking waterfall. The butterfly garden is also great!

Robert & Joost

This is a very nice colonial hotel, everything is taken care of and exudes class and a colonial atmosphere. The different courtyards are places where you immediately feel at ease. Here you can eat or read a book and from the hotel you are right in the center of San Jose where there is much to see and do. The hotel has a fantastic kitchen and on the roof you will find a Jacuzzi.
