Modern hotel with an unrivalled location in the heart of the city and a rooftop bar.

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 impressively spacious. All the accommodation is decorated in a contemporary style; beds are extremely comfortable.

The hotel has a popular rooftop bar and dining room with a friendly team and great views across the city. All in all, we think the Presidente is an ideal mid-range base for your stay in San Jose.

Our Expert's Opinion

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.
