Hotel Presidente - San Jose City Center, Costa Rica, San Jose
Very Good8.0
good downtown option
The hotel is located right on Avenida Central in downtown San Jose. The Plaza de la Cultura, several museums, and several parks are within walking distance. This is a good thing as the city put on two free outdoor events in about 3 days that I was in the area. I liked that I was able to open the windows of my room and experience a birds eye view(5th floor) of all the hustle and bustle of San Jose. The hotel in general and the room were clean and equipped with the basics plus complimentary toiletries and an un stocked mini-fridge. I thought the service at the hotel was pretty good. I tend not to interact much with the staff but the interactions I did have were pleasant. There is a rooftop patio that's connected to the restaurant. While it was enjoyable to eat outside I did notice that there was no other place such as a garden where you could just be outside while on hotel property(other than the parking lot). This wasn't a negative for me but I know that many like to relax in a garden or near a pool while on vacation and this hotel simply doesn't offer that. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a comfortable room and good guest service in downtown San Jose. I would also consider visiting this hotel again.

Perfect location in Downtown San Jose
We had wonderful service at this hotel. Our room was very spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was great as was the rooftop restaurant/bar. We particularly appreciated Yolanda at the front desk who was helpful and made us feel welcome our first visit to Costa Rica.
