The Hemingway Inn is a charming B&B located just a stone throw away from downtown San Jose. Personally what I liked about the Hemingway is its homely feel, friendly staff and the rustic charm of the 17 guest rooms each designed differently and equipped with private bath, phone, Wi-Fi and security safe. I was lucky to have a peak at all of them.
I must admit that the Inn is not a 5 star but you will be comfortable and the staff are always willing to help. Room price starts at $35 and can run up to $85. Room price includes a nice Costa Rican breakfast which you wont want to miss.
If you want a real feel of San Jose then this is a good place to spend the night.
You will find new and interesting people stopping in or might just run into an author or artist as they seems to go by from time to time.
I didn't like that there was not sufficient parking space so you might need to find parking around the corner if you will be driving. The good thing is that you will be walking distance to restaurants, parks, museums, night life, shopping, etc.
The Hemingway is recommended for average families, couples, groups, or single adventurer.
