Hotel Presidente
Ranked #5 of 78 Hotels in San Jose
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 29, 2008

I can only agree with most other reviews the hotel is getting each time better, the improvements which took place for as long as I had the chance to stay in this hotel are very nice and could not be better. Depending up on where my meetings in San Jose take place I most of the time try to stay in this unique hotel.

The rooms are of a nice size, well maintained and very clean, the noise level is very low, which gives you the chance to get a good sleep at night.

The Restaurant / Bar service in respect to Quality and Attitude is perfect, the service is fast and always with a smile. During Lunch time you are well advised to make a reservation since the place is full most of the time, it also shows that the Restaurant does a good job on the local Guest market.

If you take all facts together, the President hotel prices verses value is for sure one of the best options you can find in San Jose. I am looking forward being back in March 2008
