Hotel Presidente - San Jose City Center, Costa Rica, San Jose
Excellent4.0 / 5
The service was excellent and quickly responsive.
The hotel itself was lovely, a beautiful lobby hiding in the parking lot entrance -the hotel was somewhat tucked away, behind the gritty street where it was located. I had a layover in San Jose as my plane was canceled and rescheduled for the next morning. The location of this hotel was right in the city center, which I found crowded, congested, smoggy and not very inviting to explore, especially as a woman traveling alone. Also, the streets are not marked well, so wasn't adventurous about exploring the neighborhood. Good thing the hotel was comfortable-as a said, a lovely lobby, spacious room with big Jacuzzi tub, although I had to call for service with help stopping the tub. I don't think it was that well-maintained-in addition to the stopper being a little stuck, when I turned on the jets little bits of God knows what floated out. The complimentary breakfast was amazing - a good selection of fresh fruit and yogurts (also fresh fruit in bowls in the lobby for guests), rice and beans (the Costa Rican breakfast), a picadillo of carrots an potatoes, a really nice looking selection of freshly baked goods - not prepackaged like you find in the States (I regret that I was of sugar at the time, so didn't sample them), and best of all, someone cooking eggs to order, with a selection of veggies and cheese to add. There was sausage and bacon, too. I was off that, as well. The menu for other meals at the restaurant, however, was somewhat limited.

Great location in the middle of San Jose, tough to find without a GPS as the streets are crazy busy but overall exceptional location and building very modern on the inside

The reason I booked suite room was to use jacuzzi bath. When I turned on the switch, so bad smell water came out. I believe this hotel does not clean the bath well. Since I was not able to use, staying the room was wasted money. I have business trip to San Jose often, but I will not stay this hotel again.
