The perfect boutique hotel in Palo Alto
Everyone at the Zen is so friendly and helpful. The hot breakfast is great, and they change things up daily. The bathroom products are very nice and I love the little welcome snack kit. This is my go to hotel in Palo Alto!!

Great service and food!
I was in the area for a business trip. The Zen Hotel was great! Amazing service. It is located in a residential area, right next to a Walgreens. Short drive to the mall and dining. I would stay here any other time. The rooms are nothing luxurious but luxury does not necessarily equal good. Family owned; they treat you as a person and not just a room number. Great, great, great small hotel.

Clean and relaxing
Went down to see a concert at Shoreline Amphitheater and stayed overnight at The Zen Hotel. The room was clean, welcoming, and the beds were very comfortable. Loved the refreshing smoothies that came with the complimentary full breakfast. Check in staff was kind and welcoming.

Fantastic!!!
Cute little out-of-the-way hotel. Looks like it maybe was an apartment complex remodeled to be a hotel. Great amenities! Lots of little details make it even better. Comfortable room, comfortable bedding, snacks & water bottles included in the room. The best toiletries - even a fizzy bath square, shower cap, Chapstick, etc. a bit pricey and very small room but definitely worth it.
