    Situated in city centre which is good, next to the Jade Museum. In a really interesting building. Spacious rooms, if rather sparse on toiletries. Staff are extremely helpful and speak good English. Restaurant pretty good also.

    This is a great little hotel. We stayed one night when we arrived in San Jose. This hotel was within easy walking distance to many restaurants. The rooms are modest, but very clean and had everything we needed for the night.

    I don't know if it is available for the dates you need, but I had room #6 when I was there. It has two large beds. I believe that it came to $71 US taxes in per night. Great room, very clean.
