In December of 2011 our hotel celebrated it´s 20 year anniversary! It was 21 years ago that a Canadian couple who frequented Costa Rica as tourists, decided to venture in to the hotel industry. They saw what San Jose had to offer at that time and felt a unique, boutique hotel would be a valuable addition to offer tourists. They purchased a Victorian mansion and a property behind and began renovating and constructing, all the while maintaining the feel of the original home.
In December of 1991, the Hotel Grano de Oro opened its doors with 21 rooms and offering guests a high quality product and excellent personalized service quickly becoming well known for its high standards.
Today the hotel has 40 rooms and a large well known fine dining restaurant. We are still known for our high level of service and we work hard to offer our guests a unique and memorable experience!
We would like to share with you a series of before and after pictures. Enjoy!
