President Hotel4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Despite being situated on top of a motorway, Hotel President finds itself in a vibrant and fun part of town. My room actually over looked the motorway and I could not hear a thing so you won't be loosing any sleep over traffic noise. This is an oldish building and a family run establishment so expect plus and minus quirks. I ate in the restaurant every evening while I was there and the dinner and drinks were excellent however the restaurant does lack ambience and style. Breakfast was truly a sumptuous affair and made the whole stay worth while.
A tale of two halves! The staff at reception and restaurant were welcoming and helpful but someone definitely needs to look at their house keeping and possibly retraining is needed. Toiletries and tissues were not restocked and unfortunately we even found a bag of stale old moldy bread in one of the cupboards. When we made the reservations directly with the hotel there was no mention that they were undergoing refurbishments to some of the bathrooms so not as quiet as one would expect.
Had to cancel at the last minute because my grandmother passed away. They still charged me 90% of the full charge. Real classy. Travel to Bonn frequently. Never booking this hotel again. 0 stars if possible
I reserved a room for 7 nights for November 2017 based on their rate plan which stated "free cancellation until 18:00 at day of arrival". Once the reservation was completed, I received an email booking confirmation which said "A free cancellation of the reservation not possible". In response to my request for clarification and cancellation (with the proof of the above-mentioned information), the hotel manager repeatedly failed to address the issue but only wrote "no cancellation possible". One day after the reservation and my email exchange with the hotel manager, I found out that the full amount of this reservation was charged on my credit card. I emailed again and this time called them to cancel the reservation as they promised in their rate plan but to no avail.
Disappointed that you have to pay for wifi after thirty minutes. Room was clean but a bit noisy from the street and the highway underneath. If there were more options in this neighborhood it would be better. Lots of great restaurants nearby.
Nothing to exciting to mention but the hotel for one night was pleasant and within walking distance to all the attractions, restaurants etc. Staff are friendly and rooms very clean. The noise from the highway would have bothered us if we left window open, but since it was cold and we were very tired this didn't seem to be a problem.
We stayed here for a few nights while visiting Bonn on a business trip. It was a reasonable price and it's close to the university. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was comfortable and we found the wifi to work reasonably well in our room. Wifi was free for the first night but only a few Euros for subsequent days. The hotel is located in a nice neighbourhood and there are grocery stores and plenty of good places to eat. The breakfast at the hotel was good and the staff were pleasant and quick to provide hot coffee. The only downside was the noise from the highway. There is a major road which runs under the hotel and even at night the odd car can sound quite loud. Having the window firmly closed helped but then the room got stuffy. I don't think it matters where in the hotel you stay, there will be some traffic noise.
The overal experience was really good. I must say the location near botanic garden makes it really "green" area. That is pleasant, but i would not choose that hotel from may-june, because of alergy. The hotel is 20 minutes walking or 5 minutes by local transport from main railway station. PS: Try bacon at breakfast. ;)
This non assuming, clean and updated hotel is located on 'neighborhood' commercial street with all the shops you need and restaurants you would like. Being set about 15 min walk from the main train station (10 min bus ride) it's the perfect refuge. Front desk is friendly and quite helpful. The rooms are a descent size, clean and quite modern in decor with all the usual amenities. Except for an iron, which needs to be asked for, and availability depends. Wifi is only free for 30 mim, but it is sting and stable. 5 euros gets you 24hrs, and 20 euros for 7 days. The bathrooms are being updated, although I did not think it necessary. Ask if the renovation is done for a new bathroom. There is a restaurant on site, but with all the diversity of choices at the doorstep, I did not eat there. It's an easy 25 min commute by bus/subway to the International Convention Centre. Quiet neighborhood at night, and things don't seem to close as early as in the commercial centre of the city. Overall, solid base for Bonn visit.
I have to leave a positive review this time around as this is my second visit here and I have to say the hotel has undergone some solid changes. Rooms have been revamped. And it looks good still missing a waterboiler tea coffee compliments and cheaper parking as 16 euros a day is still quite alot. Still some other negatives like a good wine selection is lacking at the bar. PRESIDENT HOTEL has won a regular visitor in me though.
