From the outside, the paintwork looks a bit tatty, much better inside. We had booked 2 rooms, a double and a single, so I was pleasantly surprised to find 2 double rooms, and next door to each other. We were on floor 6, so not much noise, we were shattered every night anyway. We went down for breakfast around 8.30am... More

Be sure that you will not get more than you have paid .. in my opinion, it worth the money. Pros: My wife and me really enjoyed the stay in this hotel as its location facilitated our movement in all directions to all the attractions we have visited. Russell Square Underground Station (Piccadilly Line) is at 3 min walking distance.... More

Took a single room for 2 nights sightseeing in September 2014. My room was clean & basic, bathroom, shower, double bed, tea coffee hair drier etc. Breakfast was good - self service - and the staff were helpful and cheerful. The hotel is near Russell Square tube station, but is also within easy walking distance of lots of tourist attractions.

We have stayed in The President a number of times before. We stay here due to the location, clean rooms friendly staff and great breakfast. We stayed on the fifth floor this time and the room was very quiet, and just a complete make over. We will be staying again on our next visit.

This was my third trip to London and my third stay at the President Hotel for 7 nights. Since my last visit (in 2011) the rooms have been updated and this has made a huge difference. The room is brighter due to the lighter paint and bed coverings; there is also more shelving for storing items. The bathrooms are very... More

Stayed here for 4 nights. It's a simple hotel. Yes the beds are kind of firm. Yes the towels are thin. Yes the rooms are small. But it's cheap, for London, in an excellent location, clean, and safe. Wifi seemed to be slower at night. During the day it was just fine. My rate came with breakfast but I never... More

My wife and I spent a week at this hotel. When we visit London we always stay in Russel Square area and have stayed several times at this hotel mainly because it is very near the tube station. Excellent staff, very average room with an ancient functional bathroom and poor WIFI room service. The main problem is the breakfast. You... More
