Best location. 1.5 min walk to downtown, 6 min walk to Caltrain/VTA/Company shuttles (see detail);
Great for short stay or apartment hunt;
Tradeoff for the location: You may hear Caltrain crossing noise between 6AM and 12AM. It is usually OK for average sleepers when windows are closed. Light sleepers may need to use earplugs or skip, especially if you are on a stressful trip.
Very safe and convenient neighborhood. Easy access to many many restaurants, coffee shops, barber shops etc. You can see the guidebook for more. I will also happily provide local information for you.
If you are commuting to nearby companies such as GOOG, Symantec, Samsung, Intuit, there are free daily Shuttle that departs from the Caltrain station(6 min walk from apt). For map and schedule, search…
