“Our home away in San Jose”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2012

Colours is an establishment like no other, a small boutique property that is more guesthouse than hotel, akin to a family home with an everchanging stream of friends stopping by for a visit.
A diverse mix of guests --- men, women, gay, straight, couples, singles, groups of friends, introduced into a relaxed atmosphere, allow an experience here much like that offered by a train trip. A portion of, or moment in a journey almost unto itself, unhurried, where new acquaintances are often met over a meal or a drink.
The staff offer friendly and accessible yet unobtrusive service. Many of the employees have been with the owner James for a decade or more.
The available accommodations, from a modest single room, to an expansive apartment suite offer an option for any budget.
Every time we come back, Colours becomes a little more a true home away.

The manager was really helpful - even before we arrived, due to a problem with American Airlines not allowing us to fly (as we didn't have a return flight from Costa Rica), he advised on various optons. Hotel is very friendly, nice rooms and pool. But stayed too long in San Jose - there's not much to see.

Everything was great at this Gay Hotel and I would recommend it to everybody. Cant tell you enough what a great little spot of paradise this place was in "gritty San Jose".

Now for the not so good... I wouldnt recommend staying in San Jose for more than a couple of days. Just not a lot to see and frankly, I didnt feel safe. 99.9% of the businesses have guards out in front, and it was recommended that we dont walk out at night. (not a lot to do in the area) What you do find when you walk out is a lot of buildings with gates, and bobbed wire to keep others out... Be aware and street wise in San Jose, better yet skip it...

Room Tip: i thought all the rooms were great!

I have heard about Colours for many years but had never stayed until the other day when my business partner and I found ourselves in San Jose for the night with no hotel reservations made any where.

The staff and hotel owner, James were so warm and welcoming, and accommodating. Everything was fantastic, clean, and yet, simple. They have a full service bar and restaurant, so if you feel like chilling for the day, you can do so.
