    This hotel was perfectly located in vicinity of the San Jose cultural plaza. You are only a few meters from the National Theater (take the tour!), numerous museums & parks and lots of shopping areas. The staff at this hotel were amazing. Special thanks to Gabriella (reception) who was beyond helpful with local area spots & recommendations as well as making sure we had an umbrella in case it rained! Her attention to detail was flawless. The breakfast & pastries at the cafe were excellent as well.

    A jewel in the middle of downtown San José. ”

    My first room was small with no windows. On the fifth floor. I requested a room with a window and they cheerfully accommodated me for a few dollars more. The breakfast is made to order with a few choices. The food and service were great value. The managers at the front desk were wonderful and went out of their way to make my stay memorable. I will definitely return to this hotel.

    The room was tiny but perfectly OK for a one night sleep. Parking was a real pain - had to walk about 6 blocks in the middle of the night, but if you are taking Taxi or Uber and just need a place to crash, this place is perfect.
