Stayed here for 2 nights before ending my 3 week long trip. What I honestly remember about this hotel is that the owner, Thomas (and American settled there for last ~27 years) was very friendly and engaging with all of his guests. I am sure he tries to bring the quality of service. My room was right behind the reception area, so got noisy early in the morning. It affected me on one day because I was out much earlier on a trip on the 1st day. The interior of the building looked pretty interesting with the colonial touch in floor tiles and furniture. Weird thing was that inside my room there's no power outlet that I could use...wifi did work fine. Hotel has an arrangement with taxi service that charges $30 to the airport that I used - was very efficient. Breakfast is included here, but the quality could see some improvement. Seems that this place is popular with older couples and groups traveling from N America and some younger folks too that are getting in and out of the city quickly. For 1 or 2 nights, this place provides a decent value given that San Jose isn't that cheap.
