Grano de Oro Hotel

Grano de Oro Hotel

Situated on a shady street just off Paseo Colón, San José's main thoroughfare, Grano de Oro Hotel is a true oasis, a sanctuary in the heart of the city. Converted from a Tropical Victorian mansion, the 35-room hotel maintains the warmth and comfort of a private home.  

Hallways lined with period photographs and original art meander through the building and present lush tropical flower arrangements and luxuriant plants at every turn. Italian tile fountains grace intimate atriums, ensuring that one is never far from the soothing melody of falling water.
The gardens at Grano de Oro are both inside and out. A rooftop terrace offers relaxing Jacuzzis and a spot for secluded sunbathing and stargazing. Service is paramount and the perpetually smiling staff of the Grano de Oro welcomes guests home time and time again.
Hotel Grano de Oro features thirty-two rooms in three categories as well as three signature suites.
All rooms are furnished in Tropical Victorian styles with wrought-iron beds and rich damask fabrics in three jeweled color schemes - navy, burgundy and forest-green. The art and furnishings are handcrafted by Costa Rican artists. No two rooms are alike. Private baths are blue and white Italian tile adorned with gleaming base fixtures. All rooms are designated as smoke-free, with smoking permitted in the restaurant, gardens and common areas.
Standard room
The smallest and least expensive of the rooms, this category offers cozy quarters with a queen bed and private bathroom with shower.
While a bit smaller than the deluxe rooms, most superior rooms have a bathtub/shower combination and a queen bed.
The most spacious of our three "room" categories, all deluxe rooms have a bathtub/shower combination and either one queen and one twin bed, two queen beds, or a king-size bed.
Hotel Grano de Oro occupies a quiet street in the nation's capital of San José, close to the vibrant city center and numerous restaurants, theaters and shops.
Guests delight in the tranquil ambiance of tropical plants and flowers found throughout the hotel. Additionally, a rooftop garden terrace with lawnbeds and Jacuzzi provides blissful, secluded lounging.
The Gallery gift shop displaying quality Costa Rican handicrafts is the perfect place to browse for that special souvenir of Costa Rica.
