Stayed three night and found it quite good. Very central for bus station at Sky tower, bus stops, supermarket and main shopping street. Not far for aquarium shuttle either. Down side Internet for one device only and limited, no toaster in room on another floor for some reason and our lounge was a bit worn out. Can be a bit... More

It's not a Hilton - no gold taps: It's a Great Western. Comfortable, welcoming, clean and not unaffordable. Our stay at the President was outstanding. Welcoming registration, cosy, comfortable ultra-clean room, excellent wifi, staff who couldn't do enough and a perfect location to discover the city. Public transport stops outside, a 5 min walk to the "Brand" shops and the... More

The hotel is slightly dated but as we entered our room, we were amazed with the size and the facilities. The room was clean, the toilet is at a decent size and the kitchenette has everything what we wanted. Wifi access is only for 1 device, unfortunately. Location wise it's perfect, with the sundry, supermarket just down the road, the... More

Hotel check-in was pretty quick. The lobby and lift probably needs some updating. Rooms were huge with a small kitchenette but very tired looking. One of the soap dispensers was empty. Toilet flush did not work and had to call help. Both key cards did not work and had to go down and reset one card to get in. Internet... More

This reservation was made for us by a travel agent. When we arrived late at night, construction blocked the entrance, and it was dark and locked. No parking, and I had to leave my daughter with the car and walk uphill to a dark entrance that was locked.Supposedly there was a button to push but it was too dark for... More

Just a short walk to shopping street (Queen St.) and a supermarket(Countdown). A convenience store and souvenir shop at the entrance of the hotel. Near Sky Tower, Town Hall, Albert Park, civic center, etc. You can walk here to the ferry station where you can take a ride to Devonport, Waiheke island, etc. The hotel is a bit old, but... More

The room was very clean and well presented. It is great to have a little kitchenette, only the bare essentials of plates/cutlery and a microwave but this is more than a normal hotel room would provide. The housekeeping staff did a great job, the bed linen and bathroom towels etc were very clean and looked good. Three of the four... More

The room smelt like sewerage when I walked in and because there was a huge slingshot ride outside on the street, there was screaming that was loud all night. I was petrified. For someone staying by themselves, I wouldn't recommend and I wouldn't stay here again

Stay was okay, room was way too hot though and not enough Windows. Staff were good and rooms were clean but way too stuffy. Price was good and the buffet breakfast was yum. Would recommend for a short stay but not if you get clostrophobic.

Dear no1pokachic Thank you for your feedback. Our sincerest apology about being unable to move you to a higher floor which was due to our high occupancy. Unfortunately the construction at the front of the hotel is beyond our control as it is part of the cities infrastructure upgrades and improvements. We have double glazed all our rooms now that...
