I stayed at the La Amistad 4 times from 2012-2013. I must admit when my friend suggested it on my first trip I was sceptical. Rudy and Carlos or more than friendly and they bust their butts to make everything go smooth. The last time I was able to sleep more than 8 hours was the previous time staying here. Even when I'm at home I can't sleep more than 6! Try to get a room on the 3rd floor if possible. I always try for room 302, 303 or 304. Great value! This is the only place I will stay downtown San Jose if possible.
