Lovely rooms, really clean and modern. great location, not far from nearest tube. Breakfast is lovely, and the restaurant is very clean and modern. The waiting staff could be better, had to interrupt a conversation to ask for more coffee and I don't think they were impressed, however the other staff were really nice and couldn't do enough for you....

Room service would not bring to the bar even though they would have to pass this area to go to 7th floor this does not make sense, do we have to go up stairs order food then follow waiter back down into bar silly rule. Smoking area could be signposted as people are leaving cigarette ends outside of the main... More

The staff are friendly and helpful, our room was clean and comfortable. We had a meal included on the first evening and it was very good so we decided to eat at the hotel on our second evening too. Breakfast was self service, including cooked items, cereal, toast and fruit.

We spent two weeks at the President Hotel while we were visiting London and area. The hotel was extremely efficiently run (if you want to sleep in, North American style, you'd better hang that 'Do Not Disturb' sign!) from maid service to continental breakfast. We were not looking for fancy, or view, or a lot of space - just someplace... More

The hotel is of the standard you'd expect, decent rooms and good staff. I found the bed too hard but that's personal preference. The breakfast didn't have the range some might want (eg. very little fruit). But the location is very good, there's good restaurants around the hotel and great tube/bus links. 15 minute walk from Euston station.

My husband and I stayed in this hotel on 11 and 12 August 2014. The location is excellent for a quick visit to London and Russel Square tube station is literally around the corner from the hotel. The room was basic but clean and that is all you need if you just want a place to sleep and not spend... More

This is a busy hotel!! Alot of groups staying here but obviously very well organised place as no waiting involved for lifts or for breakfast. We stayed here as part of a weekend theatre break and for those purposes the hotel is perfectly located. We got the tube from Kings Cross - one stop - although really we could have... More
