Perfection
We stayed here at the beginning and end of our trip and loved the Hotel Presidente so much we extended our stay an extra night! This is such a wonderful hotel. Things to love: the service; the ambiance; the breakfasts; the roof terrace; the central location; the proximity to interesting pedestrian commercial corridors; the service (bears repeating). Can’t wait to come back to San Jose and stay here again!

8/10 Very good

Very good value
We had a good experience, stayed 2 nights. The glowing reviews of some need to be kept in perspective however. This is not a five star hotel. But it is a great hotel for the price, great for a tourist who wants to see downtown San Jose. They seem to be working on upgrades and many trainee staff at the hotel. Our room was huge, but very little furniture, we could have held a dance in all the empty space. The soundproofing is Ok, but not perfect. The hotel is at a very busy, and very dicey intersection. A LOT of street noise at night so very sensitive sleepers might find it hard. And taxis are required at night, not an area to walk around in after stores close. Very few amenities in the hotel. With all that said, it was clean and efficient and the location is excellent to see the sights. I would recommend it, just don't expect 5 stars.

Amazing Hotel
Hotel Presidente was an amazing little hotel. The staff was extremely helpful and very friendly. The room was clean and the shower had great water pressure. Breakfast was included in our stay and we were pleasantly surprised by the options available. We were not able to enjoy the rooftop patio in the restaurant due to the rain, but the view was really cool. We ate at the hotel restaurant and the food and drinks were delicious.
