Great central hotel

I had one night in San Jose before flying home and wanted a comfortable central hotel. The Presidente is a great choice - the rooms are big and very comfortable, the location is great right in the pedestrianised area, the breakfast is extensive. I would highly recommend this hotel - if I'm ever in San Jose again, I would not hesitate to stay there again.

Great location

Great location - actually, the night we stayed this part of downtown was cordoned off for a visit by the Chinese president, so strangely quiet. As a result, we ate at the hotel too and it was very good and not badly priced. Customer service was good, taxi ordered and early morning breakfast box given.

j'y prendrai volontier pension

Pour un séjour d'affaires, l'emplacement donnant sur la rue centrale de San José (rue piétonne) permet en soirée de profiter de l'ambiance d'autant que beaucoup de boutiques ferment tardivement. En WE les musées sont proches permettant de s'y rendre à pied. C'est la troisième fois que je me rends à l'Hôtel Présidente et je pense que lors de mon prochain séjour j'en ferai autant.

****-tähteä ei täyttyne...

Jos neljän tähden paikkaa vertaa esim. suomalaisten samaan, ollaan kyllä aika kaukana. Ainoastaan henkilökunta pelastaa itselleen tuon neljännenkin tähden. Muuten paikka maksimissaan ***-tähden arvoinen... Aamupala onneton, ehkä **-tähden ja häviää kaikille Suomalaisille hotelliketjuille!
