Arena Hotel, San Jose
Very Good8.0
Nice, reasonably price place to stay in San Jose
The room was a little bit of a letdown after seeing the hotel exterior, lovely courtyard, and the lobby. I guess based on the aforementioned I expected an opulent room, which it wasn’t. It was fine; a normal hotel room, although probably one of the biggest rooms I’ve ever seen at this price point. I felt it was very sparsely furnished for its size. I mean, there was room for two more king sized beds in addition to the one already in there! So I think there should have been at least a small couch or loveseat in the room in addition to the bed. There was also a huge jacuzzi tub if you like that sort of thing. Overall it was a large, nice, decent room and I would definitely stay there again.

This was a good place to stay close to SAP. Beds were a little hard, but overall good stay!

Average hotel close to downtown = good value
Hotel had very dated interiors but the room was comfortable overall. Giant tub/shower was awkward to access and needed to have the bottom cleaned better. TV was terrible: picture quality was awful, the screen had zero adjustibility, and the channels were impossible to understand. Breakfast could really be improved. Bright spot: Front desk staff was very good.

we were totally disgusted by this hotel, they wouldn't even refund our money when we told them there was no way we could stay. what an awful experience. I would not recommend this hotel at all

Over all okay
Overall a good experience. The only thing was that breakfast sucks, got sick eating their eggs. Just stick to the yogurt they provide and fruit.
