    Great little hotel in San Jose

    My sister and I stayed one night at Hotel Aranjuez. The service was amazing and room was clean and comfortable. We were nervous because we hadn't heard good things about San Jose, but we felt safe and welcomed as soon as we arrived at the hotel. The receptionist gave us great recommendations for restaurants and activities, and the hotel was close to most major sights. I would definitely recommend staying at Hotel Aranjuez!

About

Overview

The eco-friendly Hotel Aranjuez is in a great location in San Jose in Costa Rica. Considered a bed and breakfast, this property consists of five wooden houses that were built in the 1930s. It is called an authentic Costa Rican experience, and it is surrounded by tropical gardens. The front desk is staffed with a smiling face 24-hours per day, and the staff member will be happy to store luggage if needed. There is free parking available onsite. Complimentary WiFi is available at Hotel Aranjuez.

The rooms feature authentic Costa Rican decor, and they each have 32" flat-screen TVs. They also contain hot water for showers, a safety-deposit box for securing valuables, and a desk for doing work if needed. Some of the rooms are accessible for those in wheelchairs. Visitors can choose from rooms with full beds, queen-sized beds, or twin beds. The Triple room has space for three adults, but most of the other rooms can only accommodate two.

There are plenty of area attractions within a short distance of the property. The National Museum and the Jade Museum are less than a mile away. Also, nearby are the Atlantic Railway Station, the Congress, the Children's Museum Costa Rica, Simon Bolivar Zoo, and the National Library. The Paseo Gastronomica La Luz is less than a mile away, and it is a stretch of over 20 eateries and nightlife options. The closest airport is five miles away, but the Juan Santamaria International Airport is only 10 miles away.
