TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Presidente San Jose
We only spent one night here, but were perfectly satisfied with our stay. For being in the center of San Jose, the hotel does a good job with noise cancellation, though car horns will be car horns.

It was our last day in Costa Rica, so we decided to indulge in every craving. Mom was craving some fried chicken (some greasy stuff, I guess, after 2 weeks of healthy, unprocessed foods we've been eating). I figured younger kids would know where to go, ...

'There is no way I'm taking off this jacket' he said. When he had no choice but to take it off, Jose quickly took him away and gave him a club shirt. He nearly caused a riot. They are so passionate about their football. Morgs fits right in.
