We stayed at Hotel Presidente for the first and last night of our trip to Costa Rica. The best part of Hotel Presidente is the location (if you want to be in the middle of downtown). You are really close to several of the city's major attractions and surrounded by lots of local shops and eateries.
The rooms were clean and nice, and we had a great view of the city from the sixth floor. The staff were pleasant and professional. There was a decent buffet breakfast in the morning. The hotel was like a little oasis in the middle of downtown. I was super glad that we had not rented a car. Driving in downtown San Jose would be quite intimidating and the hotel is not super easy to find. Only disappointing part of our stay was the recommendation we received from the front desk for our last dinner in Costa Rica. The Nuestra Tierre was probably the worst meal we ate in Costa Rica. It could have been because the restaurant was deserted and the staff distracted by the Costa Rica v. Panama soccer game that was on that night.
