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!

Right in the core of downtown. This hotel is perfect. Recently renovated- get like a 4 star hotel in manhattan. It cost us over $200/night- but honestly you get what you pay for- no complaints.

Lovely stay in the heart of San Jose!
The service was absolutely amazing. The valet, concierge, bar and restaurant all gave us excellent service. The room was so comfortable. I was worried it might be noisy in the heart of the city but the room was so quiet. Our stay was perfect!
