A very good value, in a quiet residential neighborhood in San José. This hotel has clean, comfortable rooms with firm beds and fluffy pillows. The shared bathrooms are clean, and an effort has been made to be environmentally friendly.
The rooms can be small-ish, but the common areas are vast and beautiful-- a gorgeous garden courtyard and amazing local art all over the walls.
The breakfast (included!) is a great value, with a variety of masterfully prepared fruits, vegetables, breads, pastries and other items all on buffet. There is also an egg station to get your eggs made to order, fresh delicious coffee and juice, and the ubiquitous Gallo Pinto.
The building is old and the walls are thin, so expect some noise from others walking around in the mornings.
