I travel to many hotels in the Americas and after awhile they all seem the same, however the Gran Hotel Of Costa Rica Curio exceeded my expectations. The hotel has a long history and is centrally located next to the plaza and National Theater. The facilities have been totally remodeled in 2016 and has a very chic vibe / atmosphere. however the thing that wowed me was the excellent hospitality from all of the staff. They were exceptional!

Nice hotel sharing a courtyard with the National Theater and adjacent pedestrian square. Lovely rooms, nice restaurant, good food. Very comfortable beds and our room had a nice view over the entry courtyard. One negative, our room did not include breakfast which I found odd because many other guests were getting breakfast included. We're even Hilton Honors members, but something about because our travel agent booked it, we weren't eligible for complimentary breakfast. That said, we were pressed for time and got the breakfast buffet anyway - realizing after the fact it cost over $30 each. Very overpriced for the quality and quantity of food offered.

As first time travelers to San Jose, we wanted a hotel that was centrally located and that would be safe for us. This hotel fit the bill! It is located in downtown near the National Theater and Gold Museum, within walking distance of the tourist market and many other activities. We felt that this hotel was at the top of our budget, but believed that it was well worth it. The decor was fabulous, a combination of old world floors with modern architecture. We stayed comfortably in this beautiful location.
