Very Good 8.4 From 346 reviews

Good 6.0
Situated in the heart os San Jose, it is close to restaurants, groceries, and tourist spots (such as the national theater, national market and the gold museum). The rooms were clean and sheets are very presentable. However, there are a few complains I have: 1. Showers - when you use the shower it will be warm and then all of a sudden will turn cold. Although, when it turns cold it only last a few seconds maybe 2-3 seconds and then you get hot/warm water again. It is really just an inconvenience, it didn’t really affected me much, but i think it is worth mentioning. 2. The exhaust fan in the shower wasn’t working. We only stayed one night so can’t say how long it took to get it fix. But when we were checking-out, management was receptive and appeared that they were going to fix it right away. Other than that, the place works for a place to just rest and relax after a busy day of tours and activities. It is a safe place and i really don’t have any major complains. Staff were wonderful and easy to work with.

Good stay
Good 1 night stay. The water got hot, but kept alternating from scalding, to cold on its own, so it wasn't the best shower experience. The room was updated, but had no window. Good location, in walking distance to most of the top sights.

Perfect for San Jose downtown
A good place at downtown San Jose. Very clean room and very good breakfast. They also have parking garage which was a must for us who had a rental car. The location is perfect to explore the San Jose area. It's working distance to all the downtown attractions.
