Nice hotel if you are looking for a bargain

Posted 17-May-2017
Pros: The room was clean and very nice. The balcony view from upstairs was incredible. The staff was sweet and overall the hotel was attractive inside.
Cons: The air conditioning, the lighting, and easier entry and exit.
Location: There was a Taj Mahal restaurant across the street but nothing else in walking distance. Uber did service the hotel which was a great thing.
I was not told before I arrived that my room did not have air conditioning. There was only a ceiling fan and some windows which when open left you with absolutely no privacy. I am allergic to cigarette smoke so it did not help that my neighbor stood outside my cracked window and smoked constantly. The picture of the hotel is a bit deceiving because the hotel is not well lit, therefore, single women it is a little spooky returning late at night and waiting on the sensors to turn on the lights as you go up the steep walkway. There was no parking lot, only 2 car spaces inside of the gate that was facing the street. The gate opened upon your arrival if it was within office hours, otherwise you would have to use the key to unlock a side door to enter the grounds. Uber had a hard time finding this location so make sure you download Google Translate to communicate and get rides if you do not speak Spanish. There are no shops or stores close by and the street is not conducive for walking. The staff was nice but they had a very limited breakfast menu. As a matter of fact, they did not serve any type of meat for breakfast and there were several ants at times that were bothersome. I think the stay could have been better had I been more prepared and familiar with the area and especially if I had air conditioning.

Nice staff, good food but not if you're in a hurry. Staff not always available. Breakfast is made to order.

Nice city view

Posted 14-Mar-2017
Passed by the hotel for one night to take a flight in the next morning. Despite the location and the irregular and small parking area, the staff was great and the room very clean. Everything was excellent for what we needed. The view of the city from the top room was marvellous.

Incredible view

Posted 01-Mar-2017
The hotel is hidden from public view. It is located on a hill with an incredible view of the city. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is great and there is an incredible Italian restaurant just down the street.

Beautiful Reviews

Posted 19-Jan-2017
Pros: The views were beautiful. The outdoor patio allowed you to prepare some foods and eat. Relaxing.
Cons: Nothing
Location: Taj Mahal Indian food restaurant across the street... Yummy!
Chose this hotel because it was only 5 doors down from the dental clinic I went to. But ended up loving it. I would come back to just stay here.

Great value

Staff is very friendly, and the room is a great value, and surprisingly quiet, considering the good location--the only thing that is not so good, is the parking situation

Friendly Staff, Great B&B style hotel

Posted 31-Aug-2016 on Hotels
Only stayed there for one night as we were heading out of San Jose the next morning. The hotel was very clean and the staff were very friendly. We had issues finding a rental car and the staff was very helpful in the arranging of a rental and allowing us to stay at the hotel while we waited for the rental company to arrive.
