    Nothing

    The location of this hotel is in the ghetto of San Jose. Lots of stripclubs at two minutes away, escorts bars just two minutes away the location is disappointing unsafe unclean I did not feel safe there. The hotel had no hot water the sink was not functioning the bed were not clean. I did not stay my second night I changed hotels.

    The hotel looks like in the photo only that without photoshop. Was clean and white but lack of welcoming feeling. More like a hospital. The elevator was not working. The bed not so comfy. The pillows small and not puffy. The linen not clean and every move you make its coming out of the matress that was with stains.On the good part: The staff was very helpfull . The brekfast good but only eggs,pinto, toast bread, coffee and tea. The location its pretty in the center. Good wi-fi.
