I initially stay at Kaps Place on the 5th when I arrived in San Jose. I was tired and the room they provide was excellent. I did not interact much because I had to head out the next day. However, I did come back on the 12th. That evening I grabbed a bite at the Cafe, and talked with the... More

Lovely little hotel with nice communal area and free tea and coffee. Staff are very welcoming and helpful. Rooms are clean enough although slightly see through bathroom door is a bit strange! The only criticism I have is they wanted to charge $20 to get a small load of laundry done, at which point I decided to go elsewhere. Good... More

I took a room around the corner in the Annex to lower costs as I was in San Jose five nights for dental work. The main building is quite colorfully painted and has friendly, helpful staff, free coffee and tea any time of day and a truly amazing breakfast buffet included in the price of the room. The annex is... More

I was delighted with my stay here. $45/night was a great price to pay for a hot shower, a cozy bed (not just comfortable- actually cozy), delicious and healthy complementary breakfast, and very kind and helpful service. My room was clean and cheerfully decorated. I stayed on a Friday night and everybody respected the 10pm to 8am quiet hours- and... More

We stayed here 1 night before our flight out in a 2 bed room without attached bathroom. For what we got our room was very expensive & smelt strongly of paint. We were woken up/kept awake for a good portion of the night by barking dogs outside. In the morning when we went to leave we found they had turned... More

Stayed at Kaps Place for two nights - in two different rooms. Both rooms were really clean. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. I got there in the middle of the night and they were very friendly, showed me around and explained the breakfast options for the next day. The full breakfast buffet was wonderful - fresh fruit, different... More

Don't be fooled by the initial impression, Kaps Place is wonderful. I didn't mind the small room and I slept great! Being in San Jose for only about 15 hours, I didn't need anything fancy and I was delighted with the price. The staff is wonderful and I was immediately guided to a place to get food as I had...

They had given away our room when we arrived, but David on the reception scrounged around and found us two rooms with a shared bathroom rather than the triple we had reserved. Both rooms were bright and clean, and one even had a table and chair, so that I could use my laptop in comfort. The next morning, they served... More
