We arrived around 10pm and checked out around 6am but this hotel was clean, tiday and had a nice bed - slightly harder then I am used to but it was very nice. They sold little souvenir piggy banks in the lobby that local children had painted and the money went to local charities - i thought that was a... More

Nice clean hotel. Friendly and helpful staff. Fitness room lacks free weights but I'm a bit of a fitness snob so it may be adequate for others. Included breakfast was fantastic. It's an open buffet with omelet station and squeeze your own juice. Lots of choices for food.

This hotel nice nicely hidden in the center of San Jose, Costa Rica close to all shops, restaurants, cafes, museums, two casinos, and the National Theater. I came to San Jose to take care of some business and meet up with friends. I decided I was going to make it the most comfortable stay I have ever had in San... More

Perfect location, nice hotel outstanding service. Since our arrival we were greeted by a very helpful and pleasant staff. They did everything to accommodate to our demands, even willing to send someone to get us food to a nearby restaurant in the middle of the night. Highly recommended, great price-quality ratio! Would definitely come back😄

Stayed at the Hotel Presidente in San Jose for the first few nights of our trip to Costa Rica. The hotel is in the middle of the pedestrianised area of San Jose and the airport taxi got us there for 20USD and in about 25 minutes. The service at the hotel was excellent. All staff went out of their way... More

Outstanding hotel, breakfast fantastic. We had a large spa room with a huge bath big enough for four. The only thing is the beds are a little hard and it would be great if you supplied bathrooms. Also there are no windows in the room. However, the room was huge, clean and staff friendly and welcoming, Hotel right in the... More

Stayed two nights after 15 day beach/cloud forest vacation. Traveled as a family of 4 including two young children. We booked a suite for 20$/night extra. Huge room with king bed and another single in the bedroom. Nice living room with couches/chairs/TV. On 6th floor so no noise from street. Breakfast - ok. Best part was the fresh squeeze orange...

Cute room with clean and comfy beds. Right smack in the centre of San Jose. Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was delicious, everything is walking distance. No iron so make sure to bring a wrinkle release spray. View is ok since its in city.
