The owner is very nice. He will make sure you have a wonderful stay. I woke up really early, he bought me local bread for breakfast and prepared me coffee and some other treats. I checked in without making a reservation very late at night. The owner was not in the hostel, but when he received my called, he rushed...

Conveniently located in California Barrio. Clean , but modest rooms. Beautiful city views from rooftop. Very nice staff and fresh continental breakfast. Can walk to museums and central market. Perfect for a night or two on either end of your trip.

This is a quaint, quirky old-style hotel in a convenient area of San Jose, NOT you typical Holiday Inn. It has lots of atmosphere: colourful paint scheme with a treed courtyard in the middle, adequate rooms, very helpful staff, great fresh fruit continental breakfast, and is an easy walk to many interesting attractions - museums, pedestrian walkways, a beautiful baroque...

Thank you for your wonderful comments. We are always glad to hear from guests who have enjoyed their stay with us. You are very accurate in your review. We are not a typical Holiday Inn and we have worked very hard to earn that distinction. Each room is individually decorated. The rooms are colorful, tasteful, and inviting. We have gardens,...

This place is absolutely beautiful and very comfortable. We slept well. It is in the center of the city so there are some noise and it is near a train. The train does stop a bit during the night so we did sleep well. It does start early. I think that is the compromise for such a central and good...

Thank you for your comments. We are happy to receive feedback from guests. We are in the downtown area of a large city. It means there are big city noises to contend with. We do have ambient noise machines available at the front desk to assist if you are a light sleeper. Being in the downtown area also means that...

I was recommended this place from a friend in Canada. I'm a solo backpacker, so this was a treat to stay here for a night but totally worth it! The minute I walked in the door, I was early so my room wasn't ready: but I immediately felt at home with great conversation, coffee & fruit. The rooms are huge...

It´s a nice and small hotel in the center of San Jose, not fare away from the city center. Walking distance ca. 10min. Nice and clean rooms. The only problem is the train which comes during the day, but at night they are not driving. Cheap and well organized.
