No water for the 24 hours we were there. They said it was city wide but stores, restaurants, and nicer hotels had water. We assumed no cistern

If you stay here you would want a room that overlooks the patio rather than the noisy street.

We had an alright stay. Lots of noise but that seems to be the case everywhere we’ve been in San Jose. WIFI was horrible. Good breakfast. Staff was nice. Not bad for a quick stopover.

Cozy, comfortable, friendly B&B centrally located
We, a family of three, very much enjoyed our short stay at Hotel Kekoldi and wished we could have stayed longer. Kekoldi is a small boutique hotel with very friendly, welcoming and helpful hosts and service. Our room (#1) was pretty basic (BYO bathroom amenities) but very spacious and clean, which was all we needed. When I was able to catch a peak in room #2 though, I saw that that one has very lovely design/stucco. Although it is very centrally located in inner San Jose, close to major bus terminals (e.g. Gran Caribe Terminal for going to Tortuguero is in walking distance), museums and parks, it is nice and quiet. It has a cute courtyard and garden, and an artsy breakfast nook, where we enjoyed a very yummy complimentary breakfast with made to order eggs, homemade jam and toast, fresh fruits, fruit juice, cereals, coffee/tea. Some people remarked they had a hard time finding it...yes, at night the hotel sign is hard to see (half-covered by a plant), but google maps has no problem to lead you to the address. Then it's up a staircase to ring the night bell at the wrought-iron gate, which is locked at night - as it should be in any major city center. When we rang the bell, someone immediately came to let us in and welcome us. There is a great selection of restaurants in walking distance (such as Cafe Mundo and Cafe Rojo), and we felt safe enough in the area to walk back from a restaurant at 10 pm. Absolutely great value for money!

Good Hotel, Great Value.
This hotel was well worth the expense. The room was large and the breakfast good. The location was also good. I would stay there again and may do so when I return to San Jose later in July.

Off the main streets hotel
Lots of room with an extra bed in a separate area. The breakfast was fruit, toast, homemade jams and cooked to order eggs.

Rooms were comfortable and the staff folks were friendly and helpful. Area is a bit sketchy but close to city core. The hotel is hard to find (sign is difficult to see from the street) so your cab/shuttle driver should be forewarned.

Decent Hotel for Leaving from Terminal 7-10
The hotel is decent. The front desk manager was helpful with all of our questions of the area. The area is not the nicest, but better than the area around Bus Terminal 7-10 (where we were leaving the next morning).
