      Amazing Oasis in the heart of SJO

      An oasis in the heart of San Jose. We loved the friendliness of the staff, the comfort of our room, and the beautiful rooftop bar! Don't look further--- book this hotel!

      Would stay here again!

      The staff was friendly and helpful from the moment we arrived. The parking attendant even helped park our car into an awkward space. Rooms were comfy and clean, even though they were obviously older they were very well kept. If you're staying here be sure to get here early enough to enjoy the incredible rooftop restaurant/bar. It's beautiful.
