The Good : Lia Hotel has wonderful service, clean rooms and a healthy box breakfast. The hotel is very well located and you have easy access to transit. Parking was also included ( in the Bay area this is a bonus )

The Not so Good : The sound from other rooms and outside can invade your sleep. The alley in the back has trash dumpsters that get dumped in the mornings. You will wake up when this happens

Stayed: March 2018

Dear TheDanBecker,

Thank you very much for your review.

At hotel LiA (Life is Art) we are always happy to receive feed back from our guests about their stay with us and ideas on how to improve the experience for our future and repeat guests.

With the renovation of our 35 rooms, we have introduced an art and since recently also a wine theme to our hotel

We apologize for the noise around your room, and we are looking forward to welcoming you again soon.

Best regards,

Ivo S.
Xperience Manager

I visit San Carlos on business two or three times per year, and I usually stay at LiA. Rika on the check in desk is very friendly & helpful, the rooms are clean and tidy, and the location means I'm never more than a 10 minute drive from my office, or a short walk into San Carlos, which continues to surprise me in a nice way every time I stay there -- anyone else been to the Savanna jazz club? Well worth a visit.

Needed a hotel last minute and LiA saved the day! With affordable rooms and more than friendly staff we were so comfortable! Super impressed by the wine night, manager, and both of the front desk attendants (day/night)! Rika checked us out and was so pleasant! Also a GREAT spot in location to food and drinks

Rika was a huge help during checkin. I was early and needed to change for a meeting. She got me in a room quickly. Room was clean, well decorated and bed was comfortable. Great for business travel. Conveniently located near the train station and the airport.

Great place to stay. Clean ( very ), the staff was great, plenty of parking and lots of good food nearby. The rooms have a Hair Dryer, Keurig Coffee Machine, Iron and board along with a really nice artsy remodel.
