Mireille Darras - Hotel San Jose - Costa Rica

The Hotel Grano de Oro, located in the center of San Jose, was built at the beginning of the 20th Century, and is reminiscent of these days of fine glory and glamor. It has 32 spacious rooms, uniquely decorated, complete with all the services and amenities one expects in a hotel of these standards.

The rooms come in various categories:

The Standards, which are the smallest and cheapest rooms, are comfortable and intimate. They have a queen-size bed, and a private bathroom with shower.

The Superior rooms are similar, with a bathtub/shower and also a queen-size bed.

The Deluxe rooms are the most spacious rooms of the “room category.” They include a private bathroom with bathtub and a shower, with either a queen-size bed and one single, or two queen-size beds, or one king-size bed.

The Family Suite consists of a two-room suite with one queen bed and two single-size beds, accommodating up to five people.

The Garden Suite is spacious and elegant with a Jacuzzi tub in the bathroom, and a sitting room. It has a private entrance leading to the enchanting tropical garden.

The Vista de Oro Suite is the best you will find not only in the hotel, but maybe in town. It is only possible to reach it by climbing a small private staircase. What makes it so special is the outstanding view of the entire valley and of the Cordillera Central. The whole suite is beautifully decorated with hand painted tiles. This will simply transport you in paradise, right there in the center of San Jose. It is almost hard to believe! Admire the small palms, the tropical flowers and see the humming birds. The soothing sound of the little fountain will certainly relax you while the Jacuzzi on the rooftop is simply out of a dream!

All the rooms and suites of the hotels are proud to offer you accommodations of the highest standards, the bathrooms are all exquisitely decorated, and the furniture is made of the most precious wood, and it is as comfortable as can be expected for a hotel of this style. Smoking is only permitted in the restaurant, which is incidentally one of the very best in town.

Finally, do not miss the little gift shop where you may well find this little souvenir you would like to bring back.

Additionally, the hotel has satellite TV, room service, secure parking, direct international telephone, fax and mail service, internet, a deposit box, and laundry service. If you would like to go on some trips and tours, they can also be organized directly from the hotel.

Standard Rooms $105.00; Superior Rooms; $125.00 Deluxe Rooms $140.00; Family Suite $160.00; Garden Suite $190.00; and Vista de Oro Suite $305.00
