Historic Hotel


Short description

Historic tradition meets contemporary design


Recommended for:
Activity adventure | City | History & culture | Wildlife

This spectacular building in the centre of the city is a historic gem and part of Hilton’s Curio Collection, designed to represent the history and spirit of the country in which they sit.

Beautifully contemporary rooms are all muted shades of grey and cream with opulent four-poster beds and stylish marble bathrooms, while suites enjoy use of a separate living room with cosy sofas and access to the Executive Lounge, serving complimentary snacks and drinks each night. For dining, head to onsite restaurant Cultura5 for international cuisine with a South American twist alongside a delightful piano bar – perfect for a pre-dinner tipple.

In 2004, the building was declared a historical and architectural site of Costa Rica – previous guests include former Presidents Harry Truman, Jimmy Carter and John F Kennedy. The hotel also overlooks the city's famous National Theatre and is just moments from the charming Avenida Central, and is of course the gateway to Costa Rica's famous coffee plantations, biodiverse rainforest and remote beaches.
