Taormina Hotel and Casino, San Jose
Very Good8.0
1st Business Business Trip to San Jose in 20 Years
Hotel itself was very nice and well maintained. Clean, everything functioned, staff was nice, etc. This is NOT a Family hotel. There were a few tour groups etc. Most of the guests were Single Middle Aged American Men looking for "Female Company" which is easily available EVERYWHERE in San Jose. But most hotels in San Jose central area are the same... You see them every day entering with their "guests". It is handled well by the staff. The area around the hotel is fine during the Day, but do not go out after 8pm at Night from the hotel walking. Take a taxi at night, make sure the taxi Has a Meter !!! Breakfast was good, except for the coffee, Costa Rican Coffee is not good. Would I stay here again, YES, great value, hotel good.
