    a cozy hotel

    pass some very quiet days in the middle of urban San Jose march. the hotel is conveniently located and offers good service for the price. the only drawback that was presented was that the room I stayed in did not have remote control air conditioning and I got to spend heat overnight because the person who met me at the hotel could not solve that problem, so other well.

    Business trip

    The staff at the hotel were very polite and the service was very good. However I would suggest a flat screen TV as they has very old televisions and in bad condition. The breakfast could be better. The water pressure was very low on the 8th floor and can be worked on. Other than that the hotel is in a great location and great value for your money.
