Great hotel in a convenient location
The Hotel Santo Tomas was terrific. We look forward to staying there upon our return to San Jose. It’s located in kind of a gritty but not especially threatening urban neighborhood. The prior reviews that ranted about safety must have been written by people with pretty limited travel experience. If they want a Holiday Inn there’s One just a short block away. The busy center of San Jose is a short walk away. The hotel was spotlessly clean. Staff and owner were professional and attentive. Breakfast was fine; fresh and well prepared. The room was not fancy but comfortable and very clean.

Lovely small hotel in center of San Jose.
Stayed a few days in San Jose. Great small hotel near center of city. Restored old mansion. Owner, Tomas, is extremely personable and makes an effort to meet and greet all guests. His staff is also very helpful and courteous. Lovely sitting areas, small pool, and large rooms. Definitely a great value; highly recommend staying here.
