Instant hot water, and great shower!! Felt very secure, and great breakfast. Staff were very polite, and helpful.
No English TV channels.
The hotel is nice and clean! It’s beautiful decorated and really has a local and personal touch! All staff have been very friendly and helpful!! Breakfast was great! It’s not brand new but so nice decorated and taken care of, we really enjoyed our stay!
The breakfast was spectacular and exceeded my expectations!
Hotel Aranjuez is special, besides the fact that they have the best breakfast, the art work on display makes it stands out.
The hotel is very close to an area full of restaurants and bar. Breakfast is plentiful and delicious! Also, served in a very nice patio with garden. I liked all the traditional Costarican "puppets" scattered all around the place and the internal gardens. The staff is kind and it's useful to have it 24h. To be noted: the restaurant. It is definitely worthy a visit! And remember to reserve in advance!
Our room's bathroom was very small, it was difficult to move inside it.
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.
