Nice hotel in the middle of San jose

Posted 23-Aug-2015
El presidente was a nice hotel however finding the entrance to the actual hotel was difficult! The room was excellent spacious and comfortable and the staff was excellent. The area was extremely busy but you are in downtown San jose. Your could occasionally hear the noise from the street but i was surprised at how well it blocked most of it out. If your planning on going to the airport from here give yourself an extra hour just for the car ride.

Amazing staff

Posted 11-Aug-2015
The hotel is situated in the middle of town. At first we walked past it a few times as the hotel lobby is on the second floor and being tired after a flight from London, perhaps didn't see the sign. Once inside we were pleasantly surprised, the decor had an arty feel to it and the our room was ready for us early. Breakfast was good, a wide selection of fruit and hot food. The thing that greatly stood out for us was the exceptional staff who went above and beyond to help us.

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.

Superb service and wonderful rooms

Posted 26-May-2015 on Hotels
The best hotel we have stayed in this whole trip! The rooms are extremely comfortable with the best firm beds. There is very good air conditioning and the sauna in our suite was fantastic! It was our honeymoon and the staff was nice enough to give us a free upgrade ( thank you!) the bathrooms are also super clean and modern. Great location central to everything you need and also close to museums and affordable places to eat. The staff are amazing and one person even walked us over to the store down the street to help us buy a card to recharge our SIM card. The breakfast that is included was also very yummy. Would definitely stay here again the next time we are in Costa Rica!
