A slice of the Mediterranean in the heart of Silicon Valley

With both Mediterranean-style architecture and decor, Hotel Zico is one of Mountain View's most stylish hotel properties. Recently renovated rooms carry the theme, too, with warm tones and sleek, modern furnishings. Unexpected touches -- loaner computers and a DVD lending library -- and complimentary amenities such as wireless Internet in the rooms, a daily hot breakfast and underground parking add extra value.

Highlights:
  • Complimentary made-to-order breakfast
  • Entertainment Lounge with games, a big-screen TV and reading materials
  • Newly renovated rooms with modern decor
Rooms:

Warm colors and ultra-modern, Mediterranean decor accent the recently renovated guest rooms at this 55-room boutique hotel. All accommodations at the Hotel Zico are smoke-free and have free Internet access, refrigerators and microwaves, Starbucks coffee and aromatherapy toiletries. Furnishings include either one king or two queen beds and an oversized work desk. Many rooms have private balconies, as well.

Features:

High-speed wireless Internet is complimentary and available throughout the Hotel Zico, but one of the best free amenities is the made-to-order hot breakfast. A fitness center with cardiovascular equipment is augmented by free in-room yoga and Pilates kits, available for checkout at the front desk. The Entertainment Lounge is available for all guests and is stocked with games, reading materials and a big-screen plasma TV. Business travelers will appreciate the on-site business center with faxing, copying and printing services or the "mobile office" -- a laptop computer and printer that are available for borrowing. Free underground parking is also available.

Horrible Experience

Truly, the worst experience I've ever had. The hotel (Hotel Zico)was under construction. The location is absolutely HORRIBLE with the front facing a ramp onto the Freeway-I had to purchase ear plugs to sleep. There is no dining in the hotel, only a complimentary breakfast. They're vending machine was broke and couldn't dispense WATER-Only Soda. Tap water (room temp at that). The room smelled old and musty-they had Plastic over my patio doors, and at various times - no running water. Miserable experience.

My review of Hotel Zico

In Hotel,First thing is that we did not get the shuttle service from Air port to Hotel on 02/08/08 and hotel to Airport on 02/10/08. Pure drinking water was not available @ Hotel. Although, the room was clean in all respect and room seemed much larger than most. I liked that the bathroom was separate from the vanity area and there was a very good modern sink of glass with a long counter and there was adequate space for hanging clothes.The location was very good.

Noisy, thin walled rooms with hard beds!

Very noisy, with proximity to the freeway and the thin walls. You can hear everybody's everything, next door, the creaky floor above and the freeway! The bed was very firm. The bathroom was dark blue and the lighting was on a dial timer. The staff was nice but it was just ok. We would not stay there again.

Comfortable Spanish Style Hideaway

This Spanish-style hacienda motel has quiet rooms with free wifi, a full-service breakfast with a made-to-order omelet. It is located in the heart of Silicon Valley and the prices are fair. The price of same dry cleaning is very inexpensive. I got a dress shirt dry cleaned sme day for $5. The crowd that stays here is a young, hip crowd. There is convenient access to public transportation and stores all around.

OK, But Not Spectacular

Decent, clean hotel. Free breakfast was marginal. Got an excellent deal, so overall worth it. Would not stay there if I was to be charged normal daily rate.

Nice if you need a place to stay for a day....

Or two! Longer than that would Be excessive. We stayed on the first floor. The older gentlemen in the lobby stated that it was newly renovated? Yea not so sure what was renovated the carpet was GROSS! My husband went to the front desk to discuss the Carpet issue and all he could say was it was Renovated. Everything else Looked pretty outdated aside from The bathroom; the sink was unique the counter was nice. (That in my opinion was the only renovated part) Their breakfast was nice (omelets, hash browns, pancakes etc) and pretty fresh and the ladies serving it were sweet as well. We chose this hotel because of the great price, so I suggest you do The same if you want to "try it out". Overall, not bad. It just needs tlc. It has potential. Def bring flip flops or slippers do not walk barefoot, maybe the rooms upstairs are better? Have no clue!

Decent Hotel - Nothing Special

Hotel Zico was perfectly fine if you're planning to be mostly out of your room, but doesn't go that extra distance or include any of the things that make a stay really enjoyable (e.g. I asked for an extra blanket one night and was told they didn't have any). That said, it's clean and very decently appointed.

affordable

The staff was great but the air treatment system terrible. Once the thermostat had been set to desire temperature, it blew in cold air for a long time then warm air followed by cold air and every time it intermittently restarted it blew cold air again followed by warm then cold again. Made it an uncomfortable night sleep.. Breakfast was outstanding.
