Beautiful view, delicious late night dinner

Pros: The staff, the cleanliness, the quiet environment, the views, the pleasant music (until after 11pm), the food.
Cons: I would suggest turning the music off after 11 pm
Location: I did not get to do anything accept to get in, eat, sleep (kind of) and then had to leave next morning again. Would have stayed longer if was able to
I am grateful that my taxi driver (hired from this hotel) was on time waiting for me at the airport once I landed. He was friendly and comfortable to talk with. Check in process at hotel was super easy and quick. I appreciated the refreshing juice they gave me during check in- was much needed. I am grateful for the quick tour of the hotel, esp where the restaurant was. After all day of flying with a layover in between and no time to grab much food, I am grateful it was open till 10pm ( I had arrived there shortly after 9pm). The two restaurant staff were amazing: very patient and so willing to accomodate me, even though I was the only one there till closing at 10pm. The food was delicious, esp the pumpkin soup. I loved the view from my balcony-seeing the town all lit up on the mountain, with a clear blue pool below and a beautiful old tree near it. I also enjoyed the quiet, pleasant music in the background by the pool. However, it was not as fun once I tried to fall asleep after 11pm. Even though the music was rather quiet, I could still hear it all night, even with a closed window and curtain, and a blanket over my head. I wish the music was turned off after 11pm but it was on all night till morning. So sleep did not happen that night when I could have used it. But I still enjoyed the stay for the night. It was clean, quiet inside and I felt very comfortable at this hotel. Thank you.

Amazing Experience

This place was charming, private sweet and had a SUPER nice staff. The staff was warm and inviting. Food was amazing. Drinks at the bar...a bit too pricey. I strongly recomend this hotel for anyone who wants to avoid tourist hotels and stay some where amazing.

Hotel Alta

The hotel and grounds are beautiful. The hotel is located approximately 25 minutes from the San Jose airport; you can find hotels closer to the airport, but this hotel is charming and in a quiet area.
