In San José’s historic center, Gran Hotel Costa Rica is housed in an impressive building dating from the 1930s. It offers classically decorated rooms, a spa and a restaurant.
Score from 370 reviews Good
We highly appreciated close proximity of the hotel to the San Jose airport and free shuttle service provided by the hotel (we arrived late in the evening and left Costa Rica early in the morning). Also, you can enjoy several car rentals in the neighborhood with a pick-up in the hotel. Room was clean and breakfest starts already at 6 a.m.
Disadvantage of the location is a noise caused by departing airplanes and by the highway in front of the hotel, but it was not excessively disturbing. Also, we recommend making arrangements with the regular reception desk stuff (very helpful) as the manager helping them in a rush hour was chaotic.
clean room comfortable bed
breakfast not good
Proximity to airport and 24 hour shuttle.
Other than adjacent restaurants, not much else in the area.
Staff, Comfort and location
Close to the Airport and a casino to enjoy
Traffic in the area
Helpful staff, good breakfast
Air conditioner rattled, shower head not the best
shuttle bus and local to cafe,s
poor gym long wait at check in
Very helpful and friendly staff. Restaurants and rental car dealerships are all within walking distance. The hotel provides a free shuttle to and from SJO. The location is excellent for both the business and leisure traveler.
The front desk staff, the room staff, and everyone we encountered went out of their way to be friendly and helpful
The location, while convenient to the airport, precluded any walking or shopping
It's very close to the airport with a free shuttle bus every 15 minutes which was ideal for us. There was also breakfast provided which was lovely and all the staff were very friendly.
The free breakfast and 24 hour shuttle to the airport was excellent.
close to the airport, perfect for a one night stay free airport transfer
Staff was great
No hot water
Loved it all: nice clean room, great service, nice breakfast.
The pickup from the airport was not there when we arrived. Had to call to get it.
Laundry services are hard to find in Costa Rica. You would expect an American Hotel to have laundry rooms and not send you to the Hampden Inn with a roll of quarters.
We were staying on our last night in Costa Rica. This was a wonderful transition back to the states as it felt like being back at home. Everything was set up to make getting to the airport so simple and stress free.
Nearness to airports. Friendliness of staff. Helpfulness of staff.
A/C and gym
The soda machine kept malfunctioning and often ran out of DIET COCA-COLA. And even in the shop, the DIET COCA was often all gone....
Location...very close to the airport
The challenging intersection in front of the hotel requires nerves of steel and/or patience!
Close to the airport; frequent shuttles.
The receptionist demanded a credit card pre-authorisation AND a copy of the credit card itself ("for incidentals") AND my passport AND my wife's passport. We felt like criminals. Next day we were leaving early (before 5am); no lunch basket offered upon checkout though one table at the reception was crammed with these "baskets": you have to actively ASK for it and they will happily give it to you. But hey, you've paid for that, why should you beg for your breakfast? Cold, impersonal, one-size-fits-all. Complained to the management, got a quick (but not comforting) call back.
Room Size. Modern & Clean.
You can't get the same price offered online at the hotel desk.
This was such a comfortable and easy way to leave costa rica. The breakfast was a great costa rican version of a morning meal with lots of fresh fruit. They also have a complimentary airport shuttle. Make your life easy on the way out of the country and stay here.
very close to airport with free shuttle bus- make sure you ask reception to call it though or you will be waiting a while if you have a plane to catch! rooms good and spacious. clean towels and toiletries provided. breakfast nice and varied, available of 6-10am.
bog standard airport hotel but convenient for a rest. basically a couple of mins fro airport in a retail park. pool could be better. restaurants across the road pretty poor (Pirates bar epitomy of tackiness), pays to taxi up the road or to hotel does evenin shuttle to Alajeula Plaza if you are feeling more energetic.
