Hotel Presidente

Top choice boutique hotel in San José

Recent revamping has turned this formerly drab hotel into a glorious boutique stay. The new lobby offers tons of inlaid brick and antique adornments, and a red spiral staircase leads to a rooftop garden and hip new cocktail bar. The central location remains ideal, as do the 71 well-appointed rooms, the best of which feature Jacuzzis and stunning city views.

The hotel's rooftop cocktail bar is the talk of San José, with incredible city views and an exquisite garden.
