Situated on a shady street just off Paseo Colon, San Jose’s main thoroughfare, Hotel Grano de Oro is a true oasis, a sanctuary in the heart of the city. Converted from a Tropical Victorian mansion, this 40-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 luxurious plants at every turn. Spanish tile fountains grace intimate atriums, ensuring that one is never far from the soothing melody of falling water. All rooms are individually decorated and equipped with fan, air conditioning, cable TV, telephone, safe deposit box and minibar. Restaurant Grano de Oro merges Costa Rican tropical with European cuisine under the expertise of French chef Francis Canal. Once a simple cafe, this restaurant has evolved into one of San Jose’s finest dining establishments, frequented by locals and tourists alike. In addition, the hotel offers a bar, a rooftop garden terrace with Jacuzzi, a gift shop, room and laundry service, meeting room, internet access and a free parking area. The entire hotel is non-smoking. Why? One of the Central Valley's best restaurant experiences, unique urban boutique hotel experience, great way to start of finish a Costa Rican vacation.
