Our Opinion
This hotel is connected to the Imperial hotel through a lounge area. Their Night & Day Pub has excellent fish & chips. Just across from Russell Square Park. No hair dryers at this hotel.
Overview
The President Hotel, located in the heart of Bloomsbury is just a short walk from the newly restored Russell Square and opposite the tube station, provides an ideal location for exploring London's many sights. The famous British Museum and Oxford Street with its many shops are just a short walk away. You can wander around the market stalls and take in the street theatre in nearby Covent Garden. Soho is also bustling with bars, restaurants and all kinds of entertainment. Your best choice in the Bloomsbury district.

Good hotel at a good price

Can't think of anything negative about this hotel. My friend and I spent a weekend there and booked single rooms. We were delighted when we were given a twin room each. The room was very comfortable and clean, as was the rest of the hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel location is excellent for getting around London as the tube is just around the corner with frequent various buses passing to many different parts of London. We will definitely stay at the President again when we visit London.

Client traveling

Selena at the front reception desk is absolutely amazing! I needed someone at the hotel to print something for one of my clients and she did a phenomenal job and was incredibly patient over the phone. Keep up the great work! Thank you!

Does the job

I've just returned from a trip to London with my mum where we stayed at the President hotel. I'll start by saying that the location is great- it's right around the corner from Russell sq tube station and there are plenty of shops and cafes etc nearby. There are several positives for this hotel- check in was fast and the foh staff were all friendly and informative. We shared a twin room and it was very clean and had all the amenities you would need. Do note though that there is building work going on across the road and being on the fourth floor I did find the builders to be peeping toms! Another positive was the breakfast-we were seated quickly and the food was filling and of a decent quality considering the price. Onto a couple of negatives- I found the room to be fairly cold and the heating didn't seem to work properly. Also, the decor of the rooms is a little tired and dated; it's a shame that the smart style of the lobby isn't carried into the rooms. Finally we found the restaurant to be a little lacking when we had an evening meal there. The staff were pleasant but lacked charisma and the restaurant on the whole needs a bit more atmosphere and life about it.Ultimately this is a budget hotel so we weren't expecting the world, and we agreed that it was on the whole a decent night sleep. Considering the location the price was great value and a little tlc and attention to detail could definitely liven up the place. No real complaints though as we had a great lovely time in London!

Surprisingly good

Stayed here as part of a theatre show package and if I'm honest was not expecting great things. Arrived on 12th October and was greeted by welcoming staff. Headed to room, still not expecting much and was surprised with the quality of the twin room although it was a bit warm. Breakfast in the morning was good. All in all a very relaxing stay

Unfriendly staff

I am a frequent traveller for work, almost every two weeks travelling, this hotel has good connection to the public transport, and that's the only good thing about It, apart from that it's not worth the money, rooms are very tight on space, something called customer service does not exist at all, very unfriendly staff, no potters to help with the luggage, they don't provide even iron and iron board have a communal room for it, so every time you need to iron you need to go to the 1st level and get in the queue, I requested the receptionist Mateo to let the food delivery come to the room, but instead of refusing politely he was extremely rude, and I collected the delivery from the reception where I faced him shouting at me and being extremely rude even there wasn't any need for it don't know maybe he was on drugs or what. I complained to the manager while checking out who took it very lightly with no Apologies, I will not recommend this hotel at all, please find elsewhere.
