Great hotel right in the middle of the city.

Posted 02-Jun-2015
The hotel is somewhat hidden in the middle of the city. The staff was very helpful and the junior suite was huge and clean. The only issue is the outside noise which is no fault of the hotel and is expected when staying in the city. We only stayed one night between flights but would stay again. The breakfast buffet was great.

We flew into San Jose and drove to Hotel Presidente. It was easy to find, parking was convient and the staff was very helpful. Our room was clean and the huge garden tub was a bonus. Breakfast was wonderful!

The hotel El Presidente turned out to be a great choice. It may be a bit more than some of the other Hotels in the area but the staff was very friendly and helpful in every way. The whole facility was very clean and well managed. The desk clerks were very helpful with advice on tours etc. This hotel doesn't permit working girls which is a plus in many ways. The lobby is NOT a complete circus at all hours of the night. The rooms are very clean and there are no undesirables (if you will) roaming the halls. This hotel is like a sanctuary that you can come back to for peace and quiet. There was a little construction going on during my stay and there was a little noise but they made a good effort to only work during the middle of the day and early evening so it didn't disturb guests. The complimentary breakfast was great! Omelets, fresh fruit (The Pineapple was the best I've ever had!), coffee, orange juice, numerous types of bread, Traditional Costa Rican rice and black beans, cheeses, pancakes and plantains in a syrup, and the room where this was held each morning was fantastic. I would definitely go back and stay there again.

Great walking trip to San Jose

Posted 10-Apr-2015
Pros: Location, restaurant, staff.
Cons: Construction is underway. Once done, the hotel will be beautiful!
Location: Everything seems to be close to this hotel. We even say parrots hanging off the roof, playing, over the market.
The hotel Presidente is great for anyone planning to walk around San Jose and explore the city. It is close to museums and shopping, as well as city landmark buildings.
