While convenient...old outdated room, dangerous tub/shower, and no AC.

We had a family health condition that required particular accommodations, and the hotel staff work were exceedingly gracious about helping us out.

This is a very nice hotel and I really enjoyed it!

Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Great location. Almost next to a Tube line.

The staff was super friendly and very helpful. The lobby was very nice and the room had a wonderful view of Russell Square. The beds were incredibly uncomfortable but that is really my only complaint

I liked the rooms for the price. Staff very helpful

The hotel is very clean and well-maintained. There was no temperature control in our rooms and at night it was very hot (in early April). The staff did provide us with a fan, and that did help somewhat. I would not want to stay here in the hotter summer months. The beautifully maintained Russell Square is just across the street and there is a charming cafe there. While the British Museum is only 10 minutes away, many of the other London highlights are minimally a 25 minute walk away. There is a tube stop (Russell Square) just around the corner however. We asked staff to call a taxi for us but instead they called a service and the cost was three times as much as a taxi. We ordered our own taxis and Ubers after that.

Near train and city attractions

1 block from the train station

Breakfast was great, however restaurant for dinner was not good. Service was poor if you consider walking up to the bar to get your own drinks while on a table service with server. Closing at 9pm on a Friday or Saturday is not normal. Food quality eas not up to par. Cauliflower Mac and cheese was dry and under seasoned. Fish and chips was dry as well. Beds were extremely comfortable and rooms very clean! Overall a great hotel but not to have any meal but breakfast.

The price and location was great! Loved the breakfast also!

Excellent. Just the heating was not working properly

Dear Allan, Thank you so much for taking the time to share your feedback from your recent stay at President Hotel. We very much appreciate your comments, they are essential in our effort to improve our service standards and they have been shared with the relevant departments. I am sorry to hear you weren't satisfied with the taxi company that we called for you but, that it is just a normal taxi company and not Uber app , hence the price was more than Uber probably. Hopefully, we will see you back and this time, you will fully enjoy your stay with us. We look forward to welcoming you again in the near future. Kind regards, Paul Asst. Front Office Manager
