    We spent two delightful nights at La Giaconda. The owners made us feel like friends and family. The service was excellent--beyond our expectations. The location is perfect and the room was comfortable. We will be back. Chao!

    Ho visto le recensioni e sono eccellenti. Io presumo di essere a San Josè in Marzo o Aprile 2016 e viaggio solo. Gradirei sapere se ci sono offerte particolari e quale è il prezzo indicativo per 5-6 giorni? Non ho nessuna pretesa particolare, nonostante sia alto 190 centimetri e pesi 130 kg: un bagno con doccia, cassaforte e ventilatore sono le uniche mie richieste. Spero che i proprietari mi risponderanno, con la gentilezza e pazienza di cui sono famosi.
