    The quickness of the booking and the commodity of the check-in. The kindness of the receptionnists.

    the environment of this room has been quite noisy, by night. What has been relatively annoying because I had to get up very early the day after. The property and modernity of the fourniture have been not so perfect (the sheeps smelt a little cigarillo, and the bottom of the bedtime table "hide" some denies. But, sure, the price has been quite honest.

    The location is more than perfect and would recommend to all young people who want to get to fancy bars, chilled pubs, supermarkets with selected choices, delicious snack bars or modern cuisine. The Hotel has a great vintage flair and a wonderful patio where you could relax or have something to eat. You have to order breakfast and pay for it but we also used the kitchen once to get a small breakfast for our own. We would definitely recommend to stay here specially for the location. Keep in mind that the airport is a bit away and the traffic is crazy in San Jose so it took us 1 1/2 h to come here by Taxi.

    The floor in the room was not so clean as our socks got quite dirty walking around in the room.
