“Nothing Great about Hotel”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

I stayed twice at the hotel during 1st and 2nd week of July, 2013. The hotel is centrally located surrounded by Residential schemes / bungalows. Infact driver who was assigned the pick up (they arrange pickup through Local Radio Taxi and not through their vehicle) from airport was not aware about the location. I had to search it through Google Map to find the place.

Rooms:
Rooms were clean. Bathroom was very small and requires reconditioning.

Restaurant:
I had a breakfast at restaurant. It was average both in taste and in variety.

Service:
Front Desk people were very helpful.

Overall, there is nothing great about the hotel. Good comfortable stay at reasonable price.

I have been to president hotel a few times over the last 3 years,mostly to attend weddings.Incidentally i hosted mys sisters wedding over 2 days in july 2013 at president hotel pune.The most impressive part about the hotel is their staff.Very competent and experienced hospitality professionals are managing the show here.The hotel hosts lot of functions /.weddings and corporate events which require a lot of coordination and they really know their job.The service is good and the event hosting over 400 people went off without a hitch.I especially had lot of requirements in terms of airport pickups,special menu requirements,multiple rooms etc and all were taken care of very well.The rooms on 5th floor are good.The executive rooms are slightly more spacious.They have very good rates in monsoon period i.e till september end and net bookings are very VFM.Food quality in buffet is excellent. The bathrooms are slightly small and few rooms need refurbishing.
However overall the property is quite well maintained.Access is good and located at a central place.
Riyaz - GM,bookings and Pankaj Gade - Banquet Incharge alognwith their teams ensure that all guests are taken good care of.

Room Tip: corner rooms on 5th floor are good.room opp suite is the best.Even the suite is very good.

Enjoyed the stay at the President Hotel. I had visited Pune for my official work & then stayed at the President Hotel. This was the second time i stayed there. It was very close to my work place. The food was also very good.

I'm writing this review on behalf of my wife. The bad first: internet bookings are much cheaper than the ones made on the front desk. However, if you tell them the rate you have gotten on the net, they will match it for you. The good: my wife lost her money in the evening and had to check out the next day in the morning. She had no cash nor cards. She called me and i called the front desk and apprised them about the situation. They were happy to accept a wire transfer the next day and let her check out in the meanwhile. Didn't expect such a response and thought i would need to hammer it out with them. Was pleasantly surprised. Other than that, food was good, service was fast and the rooms were decently sized.

I am compelled to write a review about this place is largely because of excellent service support that I have experienced from the front desk staff of this hotel.
Right from telephonic enquiry & booking, check-in and up till checkout, I always received an exhilarating and pleasant response from the front desk. I think phrase "smooth check-in" would have originated from a traveller's experience, like mine's with this hotel. Mind well, they never offered me any discount, nor any freebies or anything that would have made a traveller forget any shortfalls in service or any complaints but just a perfect, professional and brisk service. This review will be incomplete with mention of Ms. Aarti who handled most of my queries, booking and checkout. I would also like to mention that my views here are in background of my past experience with front desks of various hotels I have stayed with; including likes of J W Mariott, Taj, Hyatt, Prak inn etc.
Regarding other aspects, I must mention that apart from having excellent, city-center location, hotel has right ambience, cozy rooms, very good service staff and fair quality of food. You can not compare these aspects with a very high end hotel, off course, but for a little over budget pricing offered, what you get is really excellent.

Hotel location is perfect. Nice Broad hall . Good reception . Lift service nice as compared to so many rooms. Well managed rooms and toilet . Room service need to improve. Food was Ok. TV is pathetic, should upgrade to LCD. Centralized AC was good enough . Restaurant was very good with speed service.

Room Tip: rooms on the second floor are good

Here for wedding function, the function center within the hotel was good and also the lobby area is very nice and the hotel is in good location and also the rooms are bit outdated and need some uplift. And the staff is nice too
