Very friendly and helpful staff, clean and spacious room with a good supply of hot water. The hotel is very tastefully decorated and is converted from an old clothing factory. Breakfast is good and so is the terrace restaurant food.

Thank you for your review. Our jacuzzi rooms are very popular, and sell out fast. Hopefully next time you can reach out to our reservations department, they sometimes can work miracles. Hope to see you back at the Presidente soon
