This hotel is in a quieter part of downtown San Jose, within walking distance of Barrio Amon and the parks. We really enjoyed the style of the hotel, the charm of the older buildings, unique rooms and the fabulous courtyards and gardens inside. Our favorite part would have to be the lovely open-air patio right off of the lobby.
The rooms were spacious and clean, however they have no a/c. We were fine with the ceiling fan, however, some rooms do not have fans. The only downside is that we could hear the neighbor's television very well from our room. It was on all night and we woke up several times.
There is a free internet center and safes in each room. The front desk staff were there 24 hrs and the hotel felt very secure. There is no restaurant on site, but they provide a full breakfast each morning in the dining room, which is lovely.
I do feel the kitchen staff could be friendlier - they seemed inconvenienced at times. The hotel keeps hot coffee in the lobby and one day while we were there we couldn't seem to get them to fill it up with hot coffee. We finally gave up on it and walked down the street for coffee.
All in all, I would definitely enjoy going back to Hotel Aranjuez.
