Grano de Oro

Victorian-style Boutique Hotel with Exceptional Service & Great Dining.


Rate per night from $150

In the heart of San José, the famous Grano de Oro Hotel is a surprising oasis in the concrete jungle of the city. Grano de Oro is a beautiful option for families, couples and anyone looking for boutique-style services and luxury accommodations in downtown San José.

The hotel offers 32 bright and airy guest rooms each with furnishings that echo the tropical-Victorian characteristics of the original historic mansion. Wrought-iron, deep hard woods and rich fabrics adorn the various rooms. All rooms are equipped with A/C, cable TV, mini-fridge, safe, hairdryer and coffee-maker. The hotel also includes complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the property. While Grano de Oro doesn’t feature swimming pool, guests can enjoy 2 jacuzzis on the rooftop garden terrace. The hotel partners with a massage service, Aromas Tropicales, and treatments can be arranged at the reception.

Grano de Oro Restaurant is fabulous and we recommend enjoying at least one meal there during your stay. The gorgeous indoor/outdoor dining area offers ample seating or guests can pull up a stool at the indoor/outdoor fully-stocked bar. The menu offers a variety of Costa Rican fusion dishes with European influences from their French chef. They are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Special diets can be accommodated with notice.

Service here is paramount, as one can note from the perpetually smiling staff who welcome guests. All rooms are designated as smoke-free, with smoking permitted in the restaurant, gardens and common areas. The hotel’s piece de resistance is the Vista de Oro Suite—reached by private staircase, the suite lives up to its name commanding a breathtaking view of the Cordillera Central mountain range and the Central Valley skyline.
