Modern hotel with an unrivalled location in the heart of the city. Soak in the rooftop hot tub after a day exploring.

Epitomising the mantra of 'location, location, location', the modern Presidente hotel sits on a lively pedestrianised street right in the centre of San José, with shops, restaurants, bars, museums and interesting public buildings just steps away.

The standard rooms are bright, sparkly clean and spacious, while the spa rooms (with Jacuzzi) are even bigger. Junior and master suites, situated on higher floors with mountain views, are truly first class. All the accommodation is decorated in a contemporary style; beds are extremely comfortable.

The hotel has a good range of facilities including a small gym and Rainforest Spa. There is a hot tub on the roof where you can relax after a day exploring the, at times, chaotic city. There is also a café where an excellent buffet breakfast is served and there are plans for a bistro restaurant.

Our expert's view

Hannah Waterhouse
Hannah Waterhouse - Travel Expert

Hannah had an early introduction to Latin America when her family moved to Ecuador and she returned to study in Buenos Aires for a year before backpacking across the continent.

This contemporary hotel has a great location in downtown Jose but at the same time manages to be a quiet and tranquil place to stay. The food served at the hotel restaurant is great and the hotel is on a pedestrianised street if you fancy popping out to one of the nearby restaurants.
