A friend and I arrived in San Jose at about 6:00 pm without a hotel reservation. We did a bit of research to determine what part of town we wanted to stay in, walked by Kekoldi, and decided to check to see if they had availability. We were greeted by Vincent, the new owner, who has worked wonders with this...

this is one of many places in San Jose that surprise you when stepping in. From outside, it is rather nondescript. Rooms are very spacious (STD!), comfortable matress, wooden floor, new bathrooms. Room 7 has a nice view into the patio-garden. Help with car park - everything was perfect!

A very special little hotel that's just close enough to restaurants and shopping, yet it's extremely quiet there. My husband and I have stayed there on 4 different occasions and we we very pleased each time. The renovations that the owner has done are wonderful and the owner is very accommodating. The rooms are clean and all of the staff...

Stayed here for 1 night towards the end of October, as a treat, after spending the last few weeks in shared dorms. I had a great nights sleep and enjoyed my first hot shower in quite a while. The place was going under renovation when I arrived so should be even nicer place to stay once they have finished. Helpful...

I stayed here a few nights on a two occasions and love this place. Great location, amazing staff and willing to work with guests needs. Allowed me to keep bags for several night while I was away. Great locations with bars, restaurants and shops in walking distance. Zoo very close and historic buildings nearby

Very cute hotel, looks better in real life than on the pictures. The green garden is a nice place to be. Really liked the flowers all over the place. Friendly people. Stayed only for one night to catch a bus. Neighborhood is not very inspiring. Breakfast was nice, cereals, eggs, toast etc. Normals but tasty.

A short stay here. The room was simple and sufficient. The wifi only worked in the lobby and not in the room. The staff were kind and helpful. They recommended a restaurant nearby and I cannot remember the name of it. We are vegan and it had delicious vegan options.
