Perfection
We stayed here at the beginning and end of our trip and loved the Hotel Presidente so much we extended our stay an extra night! This is such a wonderful hotel. Things to love: the service; the ambiance; the breakfasts; the roof terrace; the central location; the proximity to interesting pedestrian commercial corridors; the service (bears repeating). Can’t wait to come back to San Jose and stay here again!
