We got struck in San Jose because of multiple instances of truly bad advice from the hordes of desperate cab drivers in this city. Ultimately a cab driver took us to the inca real. The guy behind the counter did the minimal amount of work to get us our room and went right back to playing on his phone. The...

We stayed for one night only at the hotel, the reception service was good it was an easy checked in. The rooms are nice and comfortable, small but ok. Clean room but can improve for example pillows. This is not a hotel un which you can sleep till late, during morning there is a lot of noise, all hotel employees...

Rooms were dirty, mold in shower, bathroom smelled. When you walk on the floor barefooted, the bottoms of your feet turn black from the dirtiness. For breakfast they fry you an egg to eat with toast (cereal is also available). On our last day, we saw a roach on top of the table. It is a quaint place, but needs...

The property itself was so, so. Rooms were a decent sized and decently clean - did not notice any mold/mildew. The location was not close to any bus routes and was inconvenient from the major attractions in San Jose. Sketchy neighborhood to walk around in night also. It was a relatively quiet location for San Jose, sleep was not interrupted,...

The rooms were halfway between a hostel and a hotel. Atrium was impressive but the rooms were in need of renovation. We arrived in the middle of the night and spent 15 anxious minutes trying to get the 24 hour receptionist to wake up. Having just passed groups of wasted people stumbling about in a nearby street, I was in...

We were also travelling with Intrepid and many of our fellow travellers had issues with their rooms. Our room on the ground floor wasn't too bad but it was very dark and we had read other reviews so were not expecting too much. We didn't have any issues with the staff or noise but overall it is looking a bit...

This is easily the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. Also on an Intrepid tour and this was our last stop. We all arrived late and ready to hop into bed, however the hotel was not organised at all (had no idea who was going on what room etc) when we eventually got to our rooms some were not...

Unbelievable. Others in our group had no issues in room. I had a dirty room. The bedding was dirty and stained. The toilet had waste dried to the outside bowl. The business did not offer a new room or to fix the problem. Disgusting. I slept on top of the bed.
