A converted mansion, this boutique hotel is a sanctuary in the busy city of San José
City | Food & wine | History & culture | Honeymoon
Within the metropolitan bustle of San José lies this boutique hotel, a true hidden gem in the centre of the city. With original artwork and period photographs lining the halls, this converted mansion feels elegant and charmingly traditional. Rooms are opulent yet cosy, with handmade tiles and dark wood providing the setting for wonderful views out onto the greenery of the interior courtyard.
The food, though, is perhaps their crowning glory, with fresh French Mediterranean-inspired dishes complemented with wines from their award-winning cellar. Meals can be enjoyed in an intimate parlour setting or outside accompanied by the gentle hum of Spanish music, before relaxing with a drink at the hand-carved bar.
Ideal for honeymooners, a bright outside area features sun loungers and two jacuzzi pools, as well as a range of spa treatments. Whilst it’s a sanctuary from the busy streets, you’re well situated if you want to explore, with the hotel offering guided walking tours to discover all that the city has to offer.
