The Grand Hotel is in an ideal location, the centre of town. From the outside looks likes a beautiful building. It is classed as a 4 star hotel but as you enter the stars sadly fall away. The one saving grace is the dining room, it takes you back to the 1930's, back to it's heyday. This is the hotel where head's of state and V.I.P's used to stay. Now it's old and tired. Bring back the glory days!

You will either love this hotel or hate it. If you like chain hotels that are pristine but have no personality then this hotel is definitely not for you. I have stayed in this hotel twice, once with my 19 year old daughter and then on my own (I'm a 50 year old lady). The hotel was obviously exquisite in its hay day in the 1930s and its safe to say it hasn't been subjected to much updating since then. However this gives it a character and charm that most hotels would love to create. The location... Read more

The hotel is very well located in downtown San Jose a ton of museums and restaurants are nearby. But the rooms are tiny with bathrooms that are horrible and dark. The property would be fantastic with an refurbishment (especially with the location and historical significance of the hotel) Service in the restaurant is very poor. Breakfast on the top floor and the free wifi are both pretty good.

From the moment of arrival to way after departure, the experience of this hotel was appalling. Reception staff were rude & unhelpful, hotel was tired and worn with frayed carpets in the room corridors which are quite probably are a trip hazard, rooms are by far the worst of all those we stayed in during our trip to Costa Rica & hotel ripped us off after we had checked out. First room we were given had broken ceiling fan. After returning to reception to request someone look at it, was moved to a... Read more

Stayed in this hotel one night before launching on a tour of the country. It was comfortable with the elegance of a historic hotel. Yes, it was old but the room was clean and the staff friendly. Great location near several landmarks and a bustling shopping area. Try to get a room on the outer part of the building though. Inner rooms are a bit stuffy and get warm (no A/C). Restaurant was great. Dinner was good as was the buffet style breakfast with omelets to order.

The hotel has a charm and is of another era. The rooms were clean and comfortable and not very expensive. It is situated in the centre of the city and is within walking distance to many of the tourist venues, shops and restaurants.

Such friendly staff. They were very helpful in getting rid of our rental car, we no longer needed it and driving around San Jose to find the drop-off spot was harrowing! The hotel is adjacent to a pedestrian plaza, the Gold Museum and fabulous shopping and restaurants.

The hotel is centrally located, and the rooms are sparse but clean. The staff was friendly, and we had no issues whatsoever. I would recommend reading the other reviews regarding which rooms to book; we followed that guidance, and it worked out for us.
