My husband and I stayed at Marie's apartment for about 5 days. Walking into the apartment it was smaller than what the pictures made it seem but it was good for a couple. The apartment was so close to the center and it was so easy to walk to places. At night it was a bit noisy because the bus would stop in front of our building so we would hear the cars beeping. Also there is no a.c. which I didn't check before going so sometimes when we would get back from a long day the apartment was a bit stuffy. the Wi-Fi wasn't so reliable it kept cutting on and off. But besides that it was super clean and super cute! We were also able to wash all of our clothes before coming back home. So that was a huge plus! Marie was very responsive and a great host. I definitely recommend this apartment!

Response from Marie:
So you got the real beat of San Jose Down town !! That is the exact description I give in my listing, San Jose is a hob so more than one million people move through the city during the day and it turns very busy, and at night it is the oposite it tends to get very quiet. The listing is very specific that it does not have AC, but it does have a ceiling fan. The wifi problem was solved the moment you told me and I gave you another network and pw, fortunately I have three networks in case the internet company fails my guests will always have internet. Happy to know you enjoyed and to have been able to host you!

The apartment was a little hard to find but once we got settled in it was great. Everything was organized and clean. The location of the apartment was close to lots of food and shopping areas which was good.

Wonderful location! Beautiful place. Loved the shower! The cold pulses were awesome! Private and secure apartment. Only thing is climbing the ladder to get to sleep but that was overlooked easily! Would love to rent again from Marie!
