My second stay here, and just as good as the last time. For a location within walking distance of the tourist attractions this is great value. A comfortable lounge for the night cap and a great bar with balcony overlooking Russel square for a pipe smoker to enjoy his pint! The staff very friendly and the room is just what... More

We were booked into this hotel by Rail Discoveries when the date of our rail trip was changed. We had originally booked to stay the night at the Premier inn at Kings Cross which was more convenient for our early start from St Pancras. We had to use a taxi both to and from the hotel which added to the... More

Excellent value for money. Clean, comfortable, good shower, great location, food great, friendly & efficient staff. Russell Square itself is a nice place to relax before heading round the corner to explore the British Museum!

This hotel was very conveniently situated, only a short distance to Earls Court underground and within walking distance of the Victoria and Albert museum, Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park. We upgraded to an executive suite after having one night in a very pokey underground room. The suite was on the second floor overlooking pad and also had a nice balcony... More

For the price this place was excellent! The big bus tours started right down the street and the subway was less than a 5 minute walk away. So easy to get anywhere you want the British museum was a short walk through the park from there too. The beds weren't that comfortable.

After reading bad reviews on TA before about this hotel i wasn't looking forward to it at all. I had looked elsewhere but couldn't find anything in my price range, so though oh well lets give it a go. Arrived at President and from the outside it looked run down and in need of a spruce up. Reception was the... More

Woke up on the first morning with house keeping at the end of my bed at 8.40 wanting us out the room to clean it. Went to breakfast and sat at a dirty table which wasn't the end of the world, came back to the room to get ready and noticed there wasn't a hairdryer so I called reception where... More

I've stayed at the President Hotel before and given it good reviews but this time, sadly, I can't. The room I was given was a disabled room, as I needed a walk-in shower. The room was huge and had lots of space for clothes, etc, and plenty of tea and coffee supplies. No complaints there. But the windows had been... More

Stayed in a group of 6 last weekend over 2 nights. Great location just round from Russell Square tube station. Rooms basic but clean. We must have been in the older style rooms on the first floor as they were older but they did the job, for all we were in the hotel over the 2 days! Breakfast again was... More
