Casa 69 is a lovely little property within easy walking distance of downtown San Jose and just a few minutes walk from the National Museum and craft market. The rooms are comfortable, good TV, internet, and free calls to US and Canada which was a nice perk. Breakfast is unlimited fruit, juice, coffee and delicious bread. There are eggs etc for $5 extra, but we rarely felt we needed it. We booked through expedia and had no trouble with our reservation. Because I had read others had had trouble, I brought my receipt and asked the owner about it. She said sometimes the e-mail and/or name that people use on the booking sites is not the same as either how they pay or the name they give when arriving, or she has no response to confirmation e-mail. When we booked for another night at another point in our trip, we booked under my husband's name. On arrival, they looked for my name and didn't see it, but we cleared it up right away. I would suggest that however you book, send a confirmation e-mail to them with all details and they will respond. They are generally very helpful. Service is good and efficient, and our rooms were great. They got taxis for us which arrived within 5 minutes and all was well. We were especially delighted with Rafael who was managing when we were there. He was helpful, personable, efficient, and completely bilingual.
