About Grano de Oro
Grano do Oro is a charming hotel in a good location just off the Paseo Colon, one of San Jose's main streets. Often described as a 'sprawling' 20th century Victorian Mansion, it will surprise you with a feeling of small country house with personal service and elegant traditional touches of period photographs, wrought-iron beds and highly polished woods. The lobby boasts a dramatic mahogany staircase, while courtyards gurgle with bubbling fountains and hallways beam with beautiful fresh tropical flowers. Room styles vary from simple tones with a dash of tropical colour to ornate and bold and some offer private courtyard gardens. There is an excellent restaurant serving French cuisine and traditional 'Tico' (Costa Rican) breakfasts.
