Hotel Grano de Oro

Calle 30
San Jose, Costa Rica
TEL: 506 2255-3322

Occupying an elegant Victorian mansion, Grano de Oro is a welcome departure from San José’s many cookie-cutter business hotels and budget hostels. Refitted with plush appointments such as decorative dark-wood ceilings, ornate fountains, and Italian tile, the inn has a rooftop garden terrace, 32 rooms with four-poster wrought-iron beds, sumptuous fabrics, and en suite bathrooms with whirlpool tubs. The inn has a pleasant courtyard restaurant and is set in a safe, quiet area that’s within easy walking distance of cafés, theaters, and shops. If you have to stay in San José, this is the way to go.

Room to Book:

The Vista de Oro Suite has a view of the Cordillera Central mountains and the Central Valley skyline…from the bathtub.

Insider Tip:

Lunch at the on-site restaurant is excellent: try the macadamia-encrusted corvina.
