Good 7.2 From 41 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Avoid the ground floor in front.
Don't stay on the first floor in room 101 or 102. You can hear everything from the buzzer for the front door to the clerk typing on their keyboard. Other than that, excellent.

Good 6.0
Good location but average for the price paid
The hotel is in a pretty good location in relation to the city centre and China town. The main drawback is the size of the single rooms which were pretty small.

The best hotel really beautiful, my room was amazing
Karina, us1 night romance trip
Very Good 8.0
Not that costly, so okay
Far from luxurious, the staff was helpful and polite and the location within walking distance of central daytime San Jose stuff, but that also put it in an iffy neighborhood, that I really didn't feel comfortable about walking around late after dark. No elevator, so I had a third floor walk up of possible 4, even though I had requested the lowest possible floor, having mucho luggage and senior citizen years. In small room, at least the wi-fi worked well, tv, bathroom and firm bed, okay.

Poor 2.0
Stay somewhere else
Horrible place. Very noisy room, service nonexistent, TV remote did not work on a very small TV, safe did not work, bathroom sink had hair in it from previous guests and had not seen Ajax in ages. The room had a musty smell to it. For the same price or a little more you can find a better place. The only thing positiv was the location, very central.
