The hotel is clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The wireless internet is fast and was reliable. There are shops, restaurants, and a food market within easy walking distance.

For a mid price range hotel this did not provide the necessities. Very poor supply of hot water - mainly lukewarm at best, particularly in the evening. No restaurant in the evening and no coffee making facilities. Room did include a microwave oven and a coffee maker but no supplies. The barred gate structure at the entrance may have added... More

I stayed here for two weeks following medical surgery. The staff was understanding, helpful, and very efficient. We stayed in a two bedroom, two bath apartment that had a kitchen, including a stove and a microwave. We went shopping and stocked the full size refrigerator with food for our trip, but it wasn't really necessary. The room price included a... More

We were a little concerned as our cab drove into the area--however once we entered the hotel we were immediately put at easy because of the very friendly/professional service/attention we received. My only issue is the lack of local eating establishments close to the hotel--we had to walk about 6 blocks away to find any place to eat--& that was... More

I stayed at the hotel for 2 nights before my tour and then 1 night after the tour. The building is like a fortress with wrought iron gates and electric gate openers etc. but it seems like this is common for that district of San Jose. When I questioned the staff about the security, they emphatically insisted that the area... More

We stayed there three nights and were mostly out during the days sightseeing. A nice gentleman Alberto picked us up from the airport and brought us to our room. The outside of the hotel is not very impressive and the location is not near any attractions; but everyone inside is warm, friendly and very accommodating. We had a room on... More
