“Pretty average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

Big hotel, with lots of tourists. Location is great, and that's the best thing about this hotel. The rooms are only ok. Windows are made of a single thin glass, so it gets pretty cold in the winter. Breakfast is pretty average, watch out for dirty dishes and cutlery. WiFi is good and accessible from the room.

Good hotel and good location, clean, friendly staff. 3 minute walk from Russell Square station. Hotel has some good amenities branching off from main bar (coffee shop, bank, barber etc).

Slept amazingly at hotel(prob the days activities though)

Booked this hotel through a superbreak deal and found it excellent value for money. Easy to find come out of Russell Street tube station go left and take your first left and its right in front of you. Rooms basic but comfortable but this is fine for the amount of time you spend in your room. Breakfasts were manic as two hotels were using the facilities but we had no problem in getting a table. Food quality was very good and stocks were frequently replenished. Good location for Central London and the theatre district within walking distance. Only minor complaint was that the walls are thin and you could often hear people talking in the corridor. Will definitely use this hotel again next time I am in London.

Great location walking distance to tourist attractions but they were renovating other floors when we arrived. You could hear the hammering. Bathrooms have no handle bars to get out of the tub. Shower curtains dirty. Corridor carpets stained and the worst coffee I ever had.

We couldn't fault this hotel as the service & location were excellent for our 3 night stay. Yes it's looking a bit tired... however this is to be expected in most city hotels with the volume of guests that pass through the doors. This hotel gave us everything we would expect from a 3 star central London hotel...clean fresh bedding & towels (which were replaced each day). There's a good choice of hot and cold breakfast dishes in a pleasant dining room and the staff are very helpful. Our attitude is that you DONT go to London to spend the day in your room..it's just somewhere to sleep, change & refresh after a full day sightseeing.

Room Tip: Enjoy a relax in the lovely Art Deco lounge of the sister Imperial Hotel. Pass by reception & th...

Centrally located at a stones throw from the station is decent, neat and made up of twin hotels. Staff very supportive and helpful. Breakfast served is in need of revision for its pretty basic and a joke. Car rental is next door with plenty of dining options in and around. We stayed for 2N and found the stay good not great and basic not luxurious.

We stayed at the President Hotel for 2 nigts mid-week in March. The hotel was a short walk from Kings Cross Station (10 minute). The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel room as clean and beds comfortable. As the hotel dining room is undergoing a refurbishment we had to have breakfast in the Imperial Hotel. The restuarant was very busy but the staff always managed to find us a clean table. The breakfast was good with your usual cereal, fruit, toast and cooked breakfast items. The hotel is very central and within walking distance of Covent Garden and Oxford Street. Ideal hotel for a short break and I would definitely stay here again.
