Our first time to Costa Rica, Hotel Presidente did not disappoint. After a VERY LONG taxi ride from the airport - 20 miles took 90 minutes on a Friday evening - we were graciously welcomed to the hotel by staff - got our bags up the elevator to reception while we took the stairs in the beautiful atrium. Check in was super pleasant, efficient, and helpful. Hotel seems very secure between staff and card key access to the elevator. Rooms good size with nice shower, very comfortable bed, and good climate control. Enough plugs for devices and Wi-Fi works at a reasonable speed, but maybe not fast enough for streaming.
The breakfast is phenomenal, with a number of Costa Rican specialties, omelets to order, fresh fruit, yogurt, pastries, bread, meats and cheeses, and fantastic coffee (which is also available in the lobby as needed).
We only had one night, but would definitely stay again if in San Jose. The staff is very pleasant and helpful, and bilingual English and Spanish. More
