Exceptional 10.0
Best hotel in San Jose!
We had an amazing time at the Gran Hotel in Costa Rica. It is located right in the middle of the city center and is close to all the local shops and restaurants. The hotel itself is stunning! We had dinner at the restaurant the first evening of our stay. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Our servers were great! Both of the bellboys we had met were incredibly helpful and kind. Specifically Taylor and George - we can't thank them enough. If ever in Costa Rica - this hotel is where you want to stay for a luxurious experience!

Fair 4.0
Don't Stay Here
The place is super pretentious, but doesn't have much to offer. The room was super small and lower average. Not worth the price

We stayed for the final night of our honeymoon before our flight home. Hotel went above and beyond to make our stay special. The staff were all lovely. Location excellent - next door to two of the top 5 attractions in San Jose.

Was not what I Anticipated!
The Restaurant and food was very disappointing. Food quality poor, and not one of the servers asked how it was, When they were taking back full dishes of food. Would not Recommend.
