The ONLY problem I had with this property is the room I stayed in needed updating. There was a smell of "stuffiness" in it and the air conditioner was loud. The TV only had Spanish-only channels. THAT BEING SAID ... As a single female traveller, I loved the safety of this prorperty. It's in a middle-class neighborhood that is close to EVERYTHING. And the staff couldn't have been nicer. I arrived late a few minutes late for breakfast one morning -- the owner made me a special breakfast and didn't charge for it. I needed a cab to get to an appointment. The owner and his staff called me a cab every time I needed one. You really feel like you're visiting a best friend's home here. I would TOTALLY stay here again. They have an on-site restaurant that is very reasonably priced, give you good portions and offer a nice variety. This was nice because if you didn't feel like going out for food, you at least had the option to order here. But really, everything is walking distance. I took myself out to lunch most days. An avid runner/walker, I walked to many attractions -- some were like an hour away, but again, I'm an avid exercise, so I loved NOT having to take a taxi if I wanted to go somewhere. The people of San Jose are nice and respectful. I walked all over (alone) -- day and night (sometimes up to 10 pm at night), and I never felt in danger. Can't wait to visit again, and again, would stay here, but would request a different room.
