Arena Hotel, San Jose
Very Good8.0
A solid choice.
It was pleasant. No complaints. The room was clean. There is an orange light outside the window that was too bright for my liking, but the window shutters helped. It would be nice if that could be completely shut out. The exhaust vent in the bathroom was also fairly loud and rattly, but it was endurable. We could hear our neighbors through the wall - that could be a problem. Thankfully, they weren't that loud and weren't partying or anything like that. The breakfast was okay. On par with breakfasts I've had at Hilton and other hotels. It could have been better, but that kind of comfort only comes with more expensive hotels. Definitely the best bang for my buck I've had in a long time. I'd recommend it.

Super friendly front desk, enjoyable breakfast buffet, but pretty outdated in the rooms. The only reason I'm docking any points is because of the price. I wouldn't think this type of hotel should be $200 per night. But it could just be that we had to book last minute due to our other hotel cancelling on us that the price was so high. But did appreciate the free wi-fi, parking and breakfast.

I stayed here on business. The hotel was nice enough. My biggest issue is that the lighting in the room isn't great. The walls are a bit thin so when I woke up at 4:00am I could hear the neighbors TV so I had to turn on a sound machine app on my phone to drown out the noise. The person who stayed upstairs from me had heavy feet so that was a bit annoying. Outside of that, the room was comfortable and the service from the front desk staff was good.
