“Comfortable stay”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

this is our second stay in this hotel, really pleasent, nice staff, nice comfy bed (always a must).
breakfast is always busy but that comes with being in a big hotel i suppose.
really nice shower as well, some places dont have such nice ones, (like the water being to slow) but ours was quite powerful..
not far from certain theatres & also covent garden as well, just a little walk if you dont mind walking!
we've already booked for a nother stay in a few weeks time....cant wait!

We stayed at The President in May. It is an excellent location close to everything. Compliments particularly to night staff - Philip Kennedy, Mariolo (not sure of spelling) and others whose names escape me. They were so accommodating- nothing was too much trouble. We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you!

This was my third stay st the President. My room this time - as before - was very comfortable, the towels were new and the key replaced by the card system - I almost missed the long stick!
Always a safe, secure and comfortable place for me to stay in London. Concierge and staff pleasant, helpful and friendly.

Staff - helpful
Beds- springy and uncomfortable
Location - good
Rooms- old fashioned
Breakfast - cold stale toast but cereal was edible
Wifi- only available in lobby with poor connection
Towels- weak, worn and seen better days
Leaving the key at reception became annoying
Desperately in need of a revamp

Nothing fancy about this place but if you want a good value hotel that's convenient to the subway and is in nice neighbourhood then this is your place. Lots of restaurants nearby and very close to The British Museum. A breakfast is included each day and although the food isn't fantastic there's lots of variety. Nice little pub to come back to after a long day of sight seeing. We've stayed here several times and are always quite happy with it.

Room Tip: Get a room away from the park and the main roads. Its much quieter.

We used this hotel without knowing anything about it.Shabby, sadly lacking in visitor comforts.Small things such as towels (thin and poor quality) no provision of toiletries only a basic soap) even the type of toilet paper ( thin and Narrow) Black boot marks three feet up the wall in the bedroom. I could go on. I know that this week-end was busy (German football final in the city) but I hate to think what our German visitor guests thought.

Room Tip: Look else where

We spent 2 nights at the President Hotel and really enjoyed our stay. It is very reasonably priced and you get what you pay for, if you want the comfort and plushness of the Ritz, pay Ritz prices! The hotel is really well located with the tube station just round the corner, passing a good pub 'Friend at Hand' on the way! The staff were very efficient and friendly, our room shouldn't have been ready till 3pm but when we arrived at 1pm we were told it was already ready for us. The room was spacious enough and clean, there were enough towels, people have complained about not having shower gel etc but who goes away without taking their own??? It was a little difficult getting a table at breakfast time but when you did the food was good with plenty of variety. All in all a fab stay and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
