All of the staff were friendly and helpful and their english was good. Jorge at the front desk was a super star. I'd had some challenges with my room on an earlier/previous stay and then again on my most recent stay so Jorge upgraded me to a suite. But they had remodeling construction going on and the suite was right above the noisy area so Jorge moved me to a nicer suite away from the noise and provided some other comforts to make up for the inconvenience. He really went out of his way to make me comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was excellent and the servers and cooks top notch. Unfortunately the remodeling construction was loud in the mornings if you wanted to sleep in. And although the location was central in San Jose with easy access to shops and taxi's the street noise from vendors yelling sometimes was irritating.
Don't leave the hotel after dark.
The atmosphere, the fact that is new and clean. The personnel of the hotel, the food during breakfast. I did not like the streets surrounding the hotel
Located just off the bustling central street, the Hotel Presidente offers refined comfort in their modern-designed hotel. From friendly greeting from the staff to a tasty breakfast, our stay was pleasant from beginning to end. The location allows any traveler to find restaurants and the Teatre Nacional within minutes. For such a modern and refined hotel, we were surprised to find the window would not lock shut! Though we were up high, this "insecurity" may cause anxiety for some; for others, like us, we prefer to have the window open at night. Our bed was also surprisingly hard while among new bathroom facilities when also in a room with new bathroom facilities.
The professional staff was incredible.
Location was excellent-right on the pedestrian walkway convienient to stores, restaurants, and sights. Breakfast was included and had made to order eggs, and other offerings. Wi-fi was free. Rooms were very comfortable and very clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
Located on a pedestrian street within walking distance to many restaurants and bars. Room faced away from the street and was quiet. Room rate included free secure parking. The front desk staff were pleasant and helpful in pointing out local sites and places to eat.
Mejor albergue que hemos estado! Las habitaciones son bastante grandes y los cuartos de baño están limpios. Recomiendo este lugar para aquellos que buscan ahorrar dinero!
Seguro, tranquilo y muy limpio. Personal de recepción muy amable y servicial.
The hotel is average. The room is small, no coffee machine the place was almost empty I asked to change my room and they said no No map of the city no free coffee in the lobby Next day they had no soup or shampoo The place needs a new management. Small things makes the place great
Every time I entered the grounds it was like an oasis in the heart of a very large city. Beautiful pool and landscaping. Quite relaxing and the staff was very helpful as well. landscaping, very relaxing and the staff Was a few blocks from shopping and a national park but way too far from the airport. Was a $35 taxie ride from the airport.
