I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Hotel La Amistad. After we arrived and settled in, Mathew the owner, gave us a tour of the area which included going to lunch with us. You dont ever get that type of hospitality. The rooms and bathrooms were beautifully remodeled. I stayed in room 101 and the water pressure in... More

I spent 8 nights and had a great time in a studio room with Jacuzzi. The breakfast each morning was a real treat and a meeting place with the other guest to compare info on trips, places to see, things to do. The staff was great and made you feel like you were family, and I will never book anywhere... More

Hotel La Amistad is the place to stay when in San Jose. It’s central location inside San Jose itself allows one to be able to access all manner of day and overnight excursions not to mention being able to roam about San Jose itself. It’s close and convenient location allows for pleasant walks to several City parks and historical landmarks... More

I had a beautiful little patio area that had a nice view of the city. The plumbing in the room was very good (which can be a problem with... More

I have had tremendous success with finding adequate accommodations using the reviews from Tripadvisor . This is why I feel VERY compelled to share my experience when it comes to visiting this hotel. After reading the reviews, I wasn’t expecting luxury, but I was expecting a hotel which had recently renovated its’ rooms. Note: The rooms shown in the “Travelers... More

We are sorry we were not able to meet this clients standards. We were not given the chance to address the concerns, as he had made other arrangements prior to bringing to our attention the problems. On the first night we were full and were unable to move him to another room, but would have gladly moved him the following... More

I have stayed here a couple of times. The staff is super friendly. The owner is almost always available and very cordial. The rooms have been remodeled and are very clean and comfortable. The memory foam mattresses allow me to sleep better than in my own bed! I highly recommend this place. It is in a quiet neighborhood close to... More
