    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.

    In the heart of San Jose

    Great hotel in the heart of San Jose. Very nice place with excellent service and its well kept. I enjoyed the rooftop, it had good views with a restaurant/bar that was open till about 9:30pm on a mellow Monday night. Great place to relax after your flight in and very comfortable beds.
