*Where is this *
Approx 26 miles to San Francisco. However it is very close to Mountain View and Palo Alto. There are trains up and down the Bay Area Peninsula, here is the Caltrain schedule --
* The room and facilities*
Don't let the photos deceived you. The rooms are actually very bright (not yellow and dark like shown in the picture). It has a lot of natural lights. The furnishing are pretty up-to-date - e.g, stone wall in the bath room instead of tiles, faux leather chair, clean white blinds, larger than single for single bed, pretty new / clean fridge and microwave, free Internet and excellent technical support if you run into problem. The new TV box has so many channels that you can never get bored. They also have washer and dryer on the ground floor for $1.50 per load - coin operated.
* Access to amenities and transportation *
The hotel is less than 10 mins walk to the train station that takes you up and down the Peninsula. There are Safeway, salon, Barnes and Nobles, Pharmacy, and restaurants by the train station. Closer to the hotel - like 3 to 5 mins walk, you will get to many great restaurants such as Japanese, Russian, Latino, Mexican, Chinese, Indian, Vietnam, Peruvian, German, Thai etc.. You will be spoiled for choice!
The maid was friendly. Please note that they only clean your room every 3rd day but you can request daily service by putting the 'Maid Service' sign at the door knob. The front desk was efficient and friendly too.
* Safety *
The place has a no guest after 9pm policy, and you will need card key to access the corridor to the rooms. They also have security cameras in the corridor. I felt totally safe staying here.
* Type of guests *
When I think of a budget hotel, I often worry about the guests who will be loud, lots of drinking or smoking. I stayed for a week and I didn't encounter any weird guests. Everyone was nice and proper. Morning coffee served at the lobby at around 9:30am.
I am very satisfied with this hotel and would highly recommend Pacific Euro hotel to travelers.
