Property Description

The only hotel in Costa Rica declared as a Historical - Architectural landmark by the Costa Rican Governmet. Located in the heart of the city between National monuments, squares, museums and pedestrian streets: Grand Hotel Costa Rica is just steps away from rich cultural and entertainment landmarks. It is vivid during the day but quiet during the night.The Classical and Majestic 1930 five story-building offers a romantic setting full of nostalgia. An open-air Patio Restaurant, Art Gallery, Piano concerts twice a day, Gourmet Restaurant, and the best location in town to visit shops, theatres, restaurants; and in general to feel the rhythm of very active, full of life Latin American city, San Jose.

"Bob responded very promptly and the booking process went very well. They answered all our questions and offered the rooms we needed at the price they quoted. It was a very efficient way of finding a hotel for our group. You have been excellent to deal with. I have already referred your company to another teacher in our school. Thank you for being so helpful and following up on everything!!" G.W. - Cleveland, OH
