We stayed at Hotel Presidente as we flew in and out of Costa Rica for our honeymoon. It was a great location that made it easy to experience a bit of San Jose despite our limited time there. Breakfast was delicious, staff was helpful, and the entrance was lush with beautiful plants. We also had drinks and snacks at the on-site restaurant which had a very nice atmosphere.
Decent hotel in the middle of San Jose. I stayed here for one night and would do so again. The room that was assigned to me was clean and has everything you need for a short-term stay. Nothing fancy, but perfectly adequate. Decent shower pressure and reliable WIFI. Hotel breakfast was slightly lackluster, but the upstairs restaurant is top-notch and worth a visit. The staff was helpful and spoke fluent English.
We were so happy to return to our favorite hotel in San Jose after a two year absence due to Covid. Their staff is the best. Special thanks to Jorge, Rodrigo, Roberto, Douglas, Angie, Maria, Alfonso, Lisett, Andrea, Karol and every single employee at this hotel (I know I am missing some names). The hotel is very nice. The rooms are spacious and very clean, however, the staff is the best part of this hotel. Costa Ricans are known for hospitality and friendliness and the Hotel Presidente embodies that. Their customer service to us was outstanding as we have grown accostumed to. From the moment you arrive, to check in, to the cleaning staff, the breakfast staff and the Azotea restaurant staff, they are all great. The breakfast was more than expected in times of Covid. With regards to Covid protocols, this hotel has gone above and beyond. Hand sanitizers available everywhere in the breakfast room and by the elevators and especially the great idea of the hand wash station and body temperature monitor at the entrance before you even get into the hotel. We did not feel inconvenienced - we felt served. One thing we would recommend to the hotel is in suite advertisement of their great Azotea restaurant. There is a TV advsertisement near the elevators but sometimes guests are rushed and many not realize or stop the video and may not be aware that there is an excellent restaurant right on site. We can't wait to return. If you ever visit San Jose, CR, stay here. We highly recommend the Hotel Presidente.…
I Had a one night stay in San Jose and this hotel was fantastic. Great location, roof top bar (make a reservation so you don't miss out) wonderful breakfast buffet. The rooms and common areas were very clean and staff very helpful. If you find yourself in San Jose I highly recommend Hotel Presidente. Muy Bueno !!
Hotel Presidente is an excellent hotel with a fantastic central location in San Jose. It is located a few steps down a small side street, just off of the main avenue. All of the staff was very friendly and helpful, and all in all, we could not have asked for a better stay. The environment is clean and welcoming, just right after a long day of travel to Costa Rica. The breakfast buffet in the morning is especially nice, with a comprehensive selection of delicious options. The air conditioning in the room was a bit old, but still worked fine, and the room in which we stayed was clean and comfortable. There are also elevators at this hotel, which is a nice bonus. All in all, I highly recommend this hotel!
