Cute San Jose Hotel

Would recommend Tue, Jun 7, 2011
Cute little hotel in a very convientient location. Very nice little rooms with old world style decorations. The restraunt was great. On par with the old time casino rooms in Vegas as far as value for the price and amenities.

Dining

The hotel restraunt was very good.

Very satisfied

Would recommend Thu, May 12, 2011
I was looking for a hotel that was not one of the chain plaster palaces. I saw the ad for the Hotel Santo Tomas, crossed my fingers and made the reservation. I cannot quite adequately say just how pleased I was. The hotel is small, and while not on the prettiest street in San Jose, it is quite beautiful, quaint and close to many attraction. The hotel has a locked front gate and a lockable cabinet in the room. There are several outdoor sitting areas, a small pool and lovely plantings. Hotel Santo Tomas personnel are courteous, helpful and always on hand. The rooms are plain but have all you need. They are sparkling clean as is the entire hotel. The attached restaurant is small, the food is quite good and beautifully served. I recommend this hotel with no reservations.

Attractions

The local attractions, museums and such are a close walk. Taxis abound and there are plenty of buses. I personally would not recommend driving if you are a novice. Traffic is heavy and the drivers have little regard for pedestrians.

Our experience at this hotel was great. It was charming and the staff was so nice. Thanks [...] for being so nice to us. We had dinner and the Chef prepared our food to our liking and made sure we were happy w/dinner.

Shopping hint

It's best you make arrangements for someone to drop you off there is no place to park and too many people downtown.

Overall Good Experience

Would recommend Sat, Apr 2, 2011
Overall, our stay at Santo Tomas was a good one. We stayed for 7 days and took one day excursions out of San Jose for most of the days we were there. The staff was very accomodating. We arrived back at our hotel fairly late in the evenings. It was quite nice that the hotel had a restaurant on site, with the option of room service. The food was excellent. Also, breakfast was included in our rate and consisted of eggs, toast, rice and beans, and fruit. While the area is not the best in town, it is a short walk to most of the popular areas in San Jose. During the day, we did walk around and didn't experience any problems. This is not like the typical big brand chain of hotel.....but if you are looking for a hotel with a bit of charm at a great rate the Santo Tomas is a good find.

the worst

Would not recommend Sun, Mar 6, 2011
I have never before written a review of a hotel after a trip but I feel compelled to do so now. The Santo Tomas was easily the absolute worst hotel I have ever stayed in. From top to bottom it was terrible: it is located in a ghetto, the prostitutes lined up every night on the corner and we were told not to walk down the surrounding streets, the staff was ill-equipped and unhelpful, we were refused extra towels, told to hail our own cabs at night when leaving the hotel and told that there was no internet access while clearly there was a computer in the lobby. The room itself had an unusual odor and the walls were very thin, one could hear everything occurring in the surroundin rooms. Any potential visitor should do themselves a huge favor and pass on this one-star hotel. And I almost forgot: the food was horrendous as well.

Very Accomodating

Would recommend Mon, Feb 14, 2011
Quick over night stay before heading to Manuel Antonio- clean, spacious room, delicious breakfast. There was a slight mix-up when we checked in and our Interbus reservation was cancelled by accident, however the staff was extremely helpful and made alternative plans for us. Would recommend to others and would stay there again.

Its an OK experience

Would not recommend Fri, Jan 28, 2011
I was given room no 14 , the room is not great and had cockroaches . The good thing about the hotel is : the staff is very friendly and supportive. I brought a guest for 2 hrs in the night and i was asked to pay $20 for that. Still not able to digest why should one pay $20 when the room is booked for 2 guests and i was living just single for all the days i stayed there. The hotel is located in downtown and is near by to del ray and other happening places

I love this hotel

Would recommend Mon, Nov 22, 2010
This is a great hotel. It is not the Hyatt. It is an old mansion that has been converted into an hotel. It has nice decor appropriate for the early 1900's. They have some new rooms on the second floor which are smaller but modern in style. The staff is excellent, attentive, informative and always helpful. The other day, a friend returned from a trek and had her laundry done by the hotel in two hours. The restaurant is superb. There's a small garden, an exercise room and a raised veranda for reading and relaxing. Overall a great place.
