    Don Carlos is somewhat difficult to find if you are driving yourself. Much easier to take a taxi but once you get there the charm leads you to believe you are not in the middle of San Jose. This hotel is several old homes put...More

    I don't know if it is available for the dates you need, but I had room #6 when I was there. It has two large beds. I believe that it came to $71 US taxes in per night. Great room, very clean.
