Over the years, I have stayed in Lotte Hotel and Westin Chosun on company trips - they are good and excellent hotels if you are willing to pay top money. For almost half the price, I have decided to stay at Hotel President and I'm really enjoy my stay. I was given a room right in front of the City... More

In Seoul for a conference at Hangyan University. This hotel was very suitable. The room was comfortable with all standard requirements. Wifi is free and reliable. No coffee in the room though. Breakfast was a standard hotel meal, but plentiful. The hotel overlooks the City Hall and Plaza. The subway is very convenient as are the many markets and shopping... More

This 4 star hotel is right next to the City Hall in Seoul, next to 5 star hotels like Lotte Hotel and Westin Chosun, but way cheaper than them. Staffs were very friendly and the lobby was quite spacious and fancy. The building itself is little old, although I didn't have any problem with it. It is within walkable distance... More

Hotel President occupies the upper half of a high rise in an interesting part of Seoul. Front desk (good people) and breakfast buffet (so-so) are on the first floor. Other dining venues are on the 18th floor, convenient to hotel conference rooms on the 19th. Most sleeping rooms are on floors 20 and above, but mine was on the 16th... More

Easy shuttle transport from the airport to the hotel. Drop-off is at Lotte Hotel next door and it's also where the shuttle pickup point is to return to the airport. Very convenient! We had a triple room (3 single beds) and had enough space for all 3 adults with one suitcase and one carry-on each person. Wi-fi worked very well.... More

Stayed here for three nights for business. The meetings were held at westin chosun, which was more expensive than my allotted company budget. Hotel President was a great alternative within the budget. The room was spacious and comfortable. The wifi worked great as well. The house maids were attentive and responded to requests promptly. The location was great. The hotel... More

The hotel is pretty old, but its very well located, close to shops and subway, right in front of the cityhall. It´s clean and neat, but in winter a bit cold due to old windows. The breakfast for me lacked cheese and more bread and fruit options.
