Great place to stay right in the heart of downtown San Jose. Clean, friendly with great food. A little bit of street noise with someone selling bird calls all day. Would stay again. Stayed for three nights in Feb. Loved it.

The hotel is right on the pedestrian avenue, so it's easy to get to and in a safe area. There isn't much in the way of shops in the immediate area, and most of the restaurants nearby are either American chains or average bars, but it's fine if you are just trying to find a place to spend the night...

I enjoyed staying at the Hotel Presidente during my recent trip to Costa Rica. We stayed overnight on our way to the coast. The staff was friendly and accomodating, the room was spacious and clean. The area is a little busy, and there is no sign on the outside of the building, you could miss it if you didn't know...

Don' t expect a tourist hotel, but this nice business hotel is very convenient situated in the center of San José. So if you want to visit the Gold and Coinsmuseum and the new Jademuseum or the National Theatre than this is all just on walking distance.

Location was awesome. On a walking street with many restaurants. This hotel was great for what we needed. Spent 2 nights here to see the city before we went to the coast. Used them to arrange airport pickup. Also, had 2 massages at the hotel. We were very pleased with everything. Great location, great value.

Outstanding hotel! Room was quite large, staff was most friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to assist us with cabs, money e change and reservations for dinner. The breakfast was very tasty and included lots of choices including an omelet station. The location was perfect for sightseeing.
