Our group of 12 just finished a wonderful week in San Jose and a large part of the success was the attitude of the staff at Kap's Place. Besides being such a relaxing atmosphere we could not have picked a place that had staff with a better attitude. It was all about making our stay special and we all appreciated...

I am just finishing a stay here and it was great--probably the best organized guesthouse I have ever stayed in. My room was off the lobby and since they have a quiet time from 8 pm on, noise was no problem. They can arrange any tour you want for you, just like any other place in San Jose. The continental...

First let me say that the support staff for this establishment were fine. Everyone was very nice. The space itself also wasn't awful.

It was a delight for our family to stay at Kaps place. It really felt like a home for my two boys.
