    This place has character, tropical atmosphere. Nice restaurant in the hotel.

    Neighborhood was not the prettiest, but in San Jose, it´s hard to find.

    Beautiful little oasis is the middle of San Jose. The space, the flora, the staff were exceptional. And the food! The restaurant was exquisite and the included breakfast was the best we found in the country.

    Quaint and charming accomodations. A truly costarican feel and decor. The breakfast room was awesome as was the food. One of the best breakfasts we've ever had. But the absolute best thing about this property was the adjoining restaurant - the gourmet meal, the decor, the ambiance and the wait staff. It was one of the most memorable dinners of our lives.

    Great quirky base for 2 days visit to San Jose. Try the Tapas bar on the corner (fabulous).

    My room was not on the original, cute property. I was put to another building, which I did not like.

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.
