Small dark rooms, isolated location

Very small, postage stamp size, DARK rooms. 25 minute taxi ride to town. Isolated location in a questionable part of the city. Nothing nearby. Not a good hotel choice. Front desk impersonal and at times, even rude.

A wonderful, clean and great hotel. Very good shuttle bus to airport since my plane departed early in the morning. The shuttle came on time and took only me to the airport. The staffs were great, served free welcome drink. Great.

Small rooms

The rooms were extremely small. Everything was small. The pool, about the size of a bathtub. The bathroom, the bathroom door barely cleared the toilet. Most of the staff was nice, except for a guy in a purple shirt. I asked for a 5 am wake up call, but I did not receive a call. However, I set the alarms on my ipad and iphone, so I didn't miss my 8:40 am flight.

Comfortable Hotel in Safe Neighborhood

The hotel is very quiet, clean, modern, and comfortable. The location is a little over a mile away from downtown San Jose, which is perfect if you want to feel safe and away from traffic jam. The breakfast has omelette station, breads, cheese, fruits, and cereal. The hotel's restaurant Etnico has wonderful food and cocktails. There's free wifi and a small gym (only 3-4 machines). If you're looking for nightlife or attraction, this is not the place for you. But if you're just passing through San Jose or business travelers, this hotel is perfect. About 20 minutes to the airport.
