We stayed for 3 nights. We really enjoyed the free breakfast by the pool. The room is clean and big. Interesting architecture. Front desk people was very friendly and helpful, even helped us to book bus tickets.

Very good price - earning ratio. All hot spots of San Jose are easy reachable by feet. For breakfast you have 4 options, all kind of eggs, fruit and cereals. The rooms are clean with high ceilings, a little nice garden, including a little svimmingpool.
