Tiny room, no outside window, empty mini bar but good bed and restaurant. Also had a bad night with noisy people, the hotel is near the national stadium. A bit too east of center. Good for business night but not for families or tourists. I blame Kuoni for a bad advice...

The hotel staff were really friendly and check-in was smooth. There was a little plunge pool / jacuzzi which was a nice touch. The room and bathroom were both small and quite dated and overall it was very dark.

Start with the positives, we liked the location, on the outskirts of town and quiet, and the staff were extremely helpful and courteous. We stayed for four nights and that was three too many. Our room, (126) was dark and dingey, the room lighting inadequate, shower was barely hot enough, insufficient towels, small bathroom, but on the plus side the... More

Had one night here and suited our needs well. About a half hour walk into the city centre but situated in a pleasant spot close to parkland. Rooms are good, modern and spacious. Onsite restaurant was fine and our stay very comfortable. Good choice in San Jose.

The rooms had nice furniture but was very dark and had no view. Luckily we didn't spend much time in the room. However, the staff was very accommodating to our religious and kosher needs. They heated up our own dinners and we were able to eat in their very nice restaurant. Norma in particular was lovely and helpful. I mentioned... More

If not, just let this hotel be your guide because this is the perfect little gem in San Jose. From check in to check out, I was greeted with a smile and always with a "how is your stay", "do you need any help". The food was good and a little pricey, but I think that's safe to say for... More

For how much I paid, I didn't expect such a warm and welcoming experience. I an traveling to Santa Teresa but wanted to spend one night in San Jose after a very long flight. This hotel is just charming. You won't get any mountains view and it is just inside the city but if you spend time inside San Jose,... More

The hotel is a good value for the price. We booked a king room and confirmed via email, but were put into a room with two queens. Unsure as to why, since the hotel was definitely mostly empty. (Perhaps the friendly receptionist thought we were traveling as two male friends rather than a couple upon check-in.) The room was spacious... More

We booked this hotel as the reviews said it was a 4 star hotel. This is obviously so incorrect, it is crazy. Our room smelled musty and moldy, the carpets were dirty, we barely had a window, the maid service was terrible, they did not vacum the carpet once, if we had not prepaid for this hotel, we would have...
