I went to a professional conference in San Jose and stayed at Casa Primo. This place is first rate in every way and I am looking forward to staying there again. It is located in an upscale neighborhood within walking distance of the conference center. It is also centrally located between the two airports, so you can save a lot... More

I stayed 5 nights at Casa Primo while attending a conference nearby. Elizabeth, the owner, was a superb hostess for my entire stay. Prior to my visit, she assured me that I should treat Casa Primo as my home. By our last few nights, we were referring to it as home. The rooms are lovely, with lots of space, very... More

The Casa Primo was recommended to me when I could not find room in big hotels near the San Jose convention center. The hotel turned out to be a bed and breakfast, a excellent value, and a wonderful experience. The B&B is in a lovely home with guest rooms on the first level, bounded by a casual dining area to...

We really enjoyed our stay. We were met at the door with a super warm welcome and led to a large, comfortable room. It was a lovely, quiet stay and the inn keepers did everything in their power to tend to every need. The inn is located is a beautiful, peaceful neighborhood. We felt safe and very glad we chose...

We spent our last night here so we could be close to the airport and from the moment we checked in we knew we had made the right choice. The proprietors were so friendly and helpful - they brought us some fresh juice as we were settling into what turned out to be a REALLY big, REALLY nice room. The... More

On arrival we received a super friendly greeting with smiles, and were given help to move in everything. The area was quiet, and in a safe neighborhood -a VERY rich neighborhood. When we asked about snacks, we were given fresh fruit and cookies with a sip of juice, even after a 10:15pm arrival. Upon walking in, the place was spotlessly... More

This hotel is so comfy. I liked it so much. The owner is very cute and friendly. Location is absolutely safe and quiet, between Airport and Downtown. Our room was huge and very good furnished. You need GPS coordinates to get there.

The owner and helps will make you feel completely at home in this beautiful place. There's opportunities to do you own cooking, or participate in shared cooking with the owner et cetera. It's all great fun. The rooms are well maintained, very spacious and very comfortable. There's a nice lounging pool outside, with a hot tub. Though the area it... More
