Nice hotel, overpriced for little amenities
Hotel is in a great location tucked in the heart of San Jose. The restaurant was just Ok. Breakfast buffet is overpriced ($25), and there is no gym. The price is steep because of the location. The lobby and asthetic of the hotel is really cool and the view from the roof is breathtaking

Beautiful hotel in a great location
Very large, clean comfortable rooms- albeit it a bit sparsely decorated. The hotel is very attractive and in a great location to explore the historic attractions in central San Jose. The rooftop bar/restaurant offers great options and a great view. The hotel offers a very nice buffet breakfast. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Perfect stay in downtown San Jose.

Treated like VIPs!
Our stay from the very beginning was amazing! We arrived early and they were extremely accommodating to let us into our rooms early. They also gave us these incredible rooms on the top floor! They provided a snack and beers as well. The location was in the very center of the city and still felt very secure.

Worth the stay
We really loved our stay at Hotel Presidente. They upgraded our room and added complimentary breakfast to our reservation. That was such a nice gesture! We stayed here for two nights, and it was so centrally located. We were close to museums, restaurants and all the attractions we wanted to see. Next time we're in San Jose, we will stay here for sure!
