    The breakfast was really good with a lot of options and the building was a funny mixture of different houses and styles

    The hotel was very cute, secure, and the gardens were beautiful. Definitely a unique place. We were close to a little zoo, which was nice, and a good coffee shop that we spent a good bit of our two days at! We also walked to the gastropub, which was very good food.

    The room does not have AC, nor did it have a window for a breeze. We had an interior room, so sleeping was quite uncomfortable the second night. We asked for a fan, but they could not provide one. Safety seemed a bit sketchy as many told us to be careful, not keep our phones out, and Uber after dark. One taxi driver even showed us where he got shot at, in the ankle over his phone, while pointing out the "crackheads" on the corners, in the day time.

    Free breakfast (3-4 years ago) is now $11.00 for cheaper rooms-still the best breakfast buffet in SJO. Can be noisy in common areas for nearby rooms (trip planning @ 0600) but probably can't be helped. Remember: this is an old place cobbled together from several early mansions, part of the charm. There are signs of a lack of preventative maintenance, and this is dangerous for older buildings...

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.
