The hotel was very nice. We had a larger room, and everything was fine. Wifi worked well. The $40 deposit for the TV remote was strange, though. Anyone who would steal a TV remote would steal the TV, which wasn't bolted down!More

About
Description
The Vesuvio Hotel is located in the historical downtown, walking distance from the most important attractions of San Jose city, such as The National Theater, The Cultural Plaza, The National Library, ...More Museums, Shops, Restaurants, Banks, Nightlife and beautiful exotic parks. The hotel is located in Barrio Otoya, one of the oldest districts in the area and is away from the noise and traffic of downtown, yet close enough to be able to walk the central business district within a few minutes. The management makes it a priority to give their guests the fullest attention to every detail. Personalized service is the key to this owner management hotel. Less
