Top Tip
Grano de Oro is a favourite of ours in San Jose as it offers a quiet and refined escape from the hustle and bustle of San Jose and good old-fashioned service with a smile. A must is the traditional gallo pinto (black beans and rice) for breakfast.

Why we like it

  • A traditional, boutique-style hotel offering old world charm in a well located, quiet area of San Jose
  • Excellent restaurant combining French cuisine with the tropical delights of Costa Rica
  • Varying styles and sizes of rooms

About Grano de Oro

Grano de 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.
