Location was awesome. On a walking street with many restaurants. This hotel was great for what we needed. Spent 2 nights here to see the city before we went to the coast. Used them to arrange airport pickup. Also, had 2 massages at the hotel. We were very pleased with everything. Great location, great value.

Outstanding hotel! Room was quite large, staff was most friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to assist us with cabs, money e change and reservations for dinner. The breakfast was very tasty and included lots of choices including an omelet station. The location was perfect for sightseeing.

This is a good, clean hotel with really helpful staff right in the centre of San Jose. Ideally we would not have stayed in San Jose (it doesn't have a lot to recommend it) but the hotel itself redeemed the stay

My boyfriend and I stayed at Hotel Presidente last week and were very impressed with the cleanliness of our room and the hospitality of the staff. The breakfast was really delicious - our favorite we had on the trip, actually. They typically had sausage, eggs, plantains, gallo pinto (also the best we had), a selection of fresh fruit, pastries, etc.... More

Hotel is in the heart of the city - very busy area at all times. Hotel staff are very professional and courteous. Hotel is very clean, decor is contemporary and price is very reasonable! We stayed 1 night before we returned to the USA - would definitely stay here again!

We checked in at 1pm today and left by 7pm due to a mixup with our departing flight time. The hotel was a bit hard to find initially (it is on the SE corner of Calle 7 and Avenida Central). My husband stayed in the car while I ran in to inquire about parking (it is on the west side... More

We reserved three rooms for our family's last day in Costa Rica. This was a convenient location in the downtown, right on the pedestrian street and close to museums, shopping, and restaurants. Two of the rooms were pleasant, modern and clean. There is no view from the rooms. The third suite that we rented for our son was on the... More
