    Greeted by a very friendly and helpful member of staff. This made us feel very welcome after a long flight. Front of house open 24 hours a day so you can leave a key behind and not worry about losing it. Breakfast was very well catered and could order bespoke omelettes.

    Located in the centre of San Jose, traffic meant a private transfer would take 2 hours from the airport. Rooms are a little bit dated in comparison to the pictures. The bed and bathroom were clean but the wardrobe had thousands of wood mites/bugs crawling all over it. Quite hard to find things to do around the area.

    The place is lovely, so colorful, full of plants and greenery, seating areas with charming designs. Location is terrific too. A short walk to central San Jose with all its great sites, museums, parks, etc.

    It was hard to control the temperature of the water in the shower. It went from very hot to very cold for no apparent reason. Difficult to enjoy a shower under such circumstances...
