Complimentary WiFi is available at Hotel Aranjuez.

The rooms feature authentic Costa Rican decor, and they each have 32" flat-screen TVs.

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.

Pros: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!
