This hotel is good location, central. The rooms are clean, the breakfast is good too and its included. I only stayed 2 nights and i juts came to it to sleep only. Good for what it was needed. The outside looks very run down but inside is decent. Dont expect a fancy hotel. Service and staff was good though.

Cute hotel. Reception staff (Jacob, Jose & others I don't know names of) were exceptionally nice and helpful. All the rooms have unique names in addition to the room number. Very Quaint! Our room was supposed to have to double beds, but was actually one double and a roll away bed. Bathrooms were very nice, all tile- even on walls....

Good clean inexpensive and safe option in San Jose, staff is very friendly, rooms are clean, basic rooms are TINY but functional, I recommend getting the deluxe room instead for a few dollars more. Be aware they charge 10 per night for an extra person in the room.

This is a nice and clean hotel in a good location in San Jose. Rooms were excellent and staff is friendly. The bar/restaurant was pretty good. Breakfast is minimal which is why I rate it a 4 instead of 5.

This hotel is very centrally located in San Jose! The outside of the establishment does not do the interior justice. It has very nice decor in this hotel. They offered and delivered on creating a laminated wallet sized version of my passport for me so I would not have to take my passport with me throughout the city. The rooms...

I stayed here for three nights. It is still pretty central to downtown and the Jade museum. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They called around to help me with tours and transportation.

Customer service was excellent. Our room was small as we expected but very clean. The breakfast in the morning was great. The wifi was reliable and there was free parking. They do have breakfast to order as well so you can ask the waitress for a menu if you want eggs or other breakfast items. It was a bargain!
