This is a small hotel, located in a mixed residential, small business area of San Jose. The hotel, itself, was made from about three homes linked together and turned into boutique hotel. Although it is located on a quiet side street, it is less than a block from a main avenue, with very easy public transportation choices. Within walking distance is a nice size supermarket, right next to an absolute dream of a bakery. About three blocks further is a 3 story mall with just about everything you could possibly want to buy. The location made it very convenient for us to get around. And, because we were in a fairly upscale neighborhood, we didn't have concerns about the petty crime that can be common in any large city.
The restaurant in the hotel was great, with an enormous breakfast included in the room rate. Dinners were terrific as well. Not a huge selection, but the food was heavenly. The entire staff was warm and welcoming, and we enjoyed many laughs with them. The rooms are clean and comfortable, with internet available everywhere. There were several repeat guests who refuse to stay anywhere else. You truly feel like the guest of a welcoming family here.
Only two minor drawbacks to mention - no air conditioning, and lots of stairs. If you have not been to San Jose before, it is in the mountains, close to the equator. Temperatures year round are between ~ 60 - 80 degrees. So air conditioning really is not needed. The ceiling fans keep everything very nice. Humidity is the only real issue, and then only if you want a very dry environment. The stairs can be tricky if you have any knee or hip problems, or trouble with balance. Otherwise they simply are not an issue at all.
