Safe area of town, a bit of a walk into San Jose downtown but easy and faster than a cab when traffic is nuts. I stayed in two different areas of the hotel, one the day of arrival and another the day of departure. They are in the process of doing some updates so some rooms are better than others.... More

The scenery is beautiful. I was very impressed with the pool and restaurant. The service in the restaurant was amazing although they closed really early. The room was not that great. The room had a few places with mold and it was very stuffy. Overall the stay was great.

Stayed here as a gateway stop on a g adventures independent tour. Pros- great air con, really friendly, great wifi and breakfast (which I didn't think was included but was, so a nice bonus). Wouldn't pay 10 dollars separately though. Supermarket really close by to stock up on fruit and water. AMAZING shower - hot and powerful, just what you... More

I have just recently stayed at Autentico Hotel for three nights. When I opened the door of my room, I gasped how simple the room was. In the room, I found a full or queen size bed, a desk & chair, a closet, and two nightstands. The bed covering was in the earth tone and I was not sure whether... More

Brought 15 students and faculty for study abroad. Well-managed, clean hotel with friendly service. Restaurant was very, very good. It's a bit noisy if your room is near the pool bc the sound echoes throughout the first floor. The grounds are very well-maintained and there's a nice grocery store nearby for picking up snacks.

I have stayed here a few times and I have always been very pleased with the facility and staff. The restaurant food and staff is absolutely superior. The staff could not be more professional or friendly. I speak a very limited amount of Espanol, but this was a none issue. A friend and I had dinner here three weeks ago... More

We like this hotel is about 30 minutes walk from the center of San Jose. Very clean and we only stayed 2 days. It was not crowded so service was great. People were friendly. No surprises on the bill, this is what I like.

We bookended a G Adventure Tour at this hotel. The lobby area has been renovated, but most of the rooms are homages to the 80s. Consensus on the pool deck is people on package tours don't get the handful of renovated rooms. The first night my bed had a noticeable tilt to the left. On my return visit, the bed... More
