We stayed at Kekoldi for one night when we first arrived in San Jose. It was a good jumping off point for us. I don't know if the neighborhood is safe or not, but the front desk has to buzz you in...so the door is locked at all times. We walked about 10 minutes to a local restaurant for dinner. I can't say I felt entirely comfortable walking around San Jose...but that's not really a reflection of Kekoldi.
We found the staff to be friendly. Our room was comfortable, clean, and spacious. As many other reviewers pointed out, there is a nice garden off the reception area. Personally, I would not really want to spend a lot of time in the San Jose area, but if you are looking for a place for a night or two, this place is perfect. It's within walking distance of a few restaurants and Avenida Central. They can also arrange a pick up from the airport if you are arriving into San jose.
