Gran Hotel Costa Rica, Curio Collection By Hilton

Rated 9.4 in 176 reviews. 85 rooms.


The Gran Hotel Costa Rica is operated by the hotel group Elite Hotels and Resorts of Costa Rica. It is the only hotel in San José declared by the government as a historical and architectural monument. Located in the heart of San José, surrounded by national museums, plazas and walking boulevards, the venue is within walking distance to the main cultural and tourist attractions.

In May 2016 a complete transformation began to revitalize this historical hotel with the latest room designs, sophisticated furnishing, premium services and the most advanced technology. An impressive lobby with a fully modern welcoming experience, as well as an executive lounge, meeting rooms and an innovative concept of a brand restaurant, will all be ready and open by October 2017. The hotel is affiliated through a franchise arrangement with Hilton Worldwide under the brand Hilton Curio Collection.

The hotel is within 5 minutes’ walk of San José Cathedral and the National Theatre. The hotel building has been recognised as a site of architectural interest.
