Hotel Grano de Oro, San Jose
Urban Oasis - comfort in the middle of San Jose
Great service with well appointed, comfortable room. We had a 'patio' attached to the room which was a little odd. I thought the patio would be outdoors, but it was sorta indoor/outdoor with only a semi-open roof. End result was not as much fresh air as expected, but it was still a nice place to have coffee in the morning. Also, there was a small water feature on the patio, which wasn't much to look at but made a nice natural noisemaker at nighttime, which was great to keep out the city sounds! This was our final night in Costa Rica before heading to the airport the next morning, and it was a really nice way to end the trip. Dinner and breakfast were fantastic - our best meal of the trip food-wise.

Jungle in the city
Rooms are a bit small but the location is the best. Close to walk everywhere but not so close to here the traffic.
