Lovely rooms, really clean and modern. great location, not far from nearest tube. Breakfast is lovely, and the restaurant is very clean and modern. The waiting staff could be better, had to interrupt a conversation to ask for more coffee and I don't think they were impressed, however the other staff were really nice and couldn't do enough for you. The bar is really nice - think Great Gatsby! Would definitely stay here in future.

Room service would not bring to the bar even though they would have to pass this area to go to 7th floor this does not make sense, do we have to go up stairs order food then follow waiter back down into bar silly rule. Smoking area could be signposted as people are leaving cigarette ends outside of the main entrance. Room was adequate. Small paper thin towels to dry yourself with. Breakfast was basic and not very hot, staff could be a bit more friendly. I would stay here again as it is very close to tube for all the links.

The staff are friendly and helpful, our room was clean and comfortable. We had a meal included on the first evening and it was very good so we decided to eat at the hotel on our second evening too. Breakfast was self service, including cooked items, cereal, toast and fruit.

A little apprehensive about staying here after reading reviews ,

Picked this hotel purely for location it was easy access for the tube and theatre land
On arriving found the hotel really easy to find ( a short walk from kings cross ) even shorter from Russell square,
The outside of the building was very pink off putting to look at, but once in the building very Art Deco pleasantly surprised, a very swift check in, polite and helpful staff,
We stayed on the 6 th floor room looked recently decorated, small but enough room for a 3 night stay only in there to sleep


Breakfast
We just showed our room card to front of house we were then seated very swiftly
English breakfast was adequate,
Continental was available but we never tried it
Fresh orange Dring not great too watery

Evening bar
Lovely open plan very pleasant staff could be open later so didn't have to go to the late bar which found a little rowdy as we were with parents who just wanted a quiet relaxed atmosphere,
( could have a member of staff serving drinks through to the lounge area as 11pm is early closing for London )

Value = correct price for what you get ( we think the negative comments on this hotel are people wanting 5* service for 3* prices

Room = small but clean

Bar= comfortable but closed too early

Breakfast= what you would expect for 3* less water in the orange please

Would I stay here again yes I would great location

Room Tip: 6th floor very quiet

We spent two weeks at the President Hotel while we were visiting London and area. The hotel was extremely efficiently run (if you want to sleep in, North American style, you'd better hang that 'Do Not Disturb' sign!) from maid service to continental breakfast. We were not looking for fancy, or view, or a lot of space - just someplace clean and quiet to rest up and recharge for the next day's adventures.
Our only problem was that our original reservation was switched from the two twins to a room with a queen/double, but we got that rectified immediately. The front desk had presumed we would prefer a view and the one bed in a slightly larger room. They did not think that we would like the courtyard (working) room with the twin beds - but it was perfect to our needs. Since we had researched travel in Europe, the lack of supplied facecloths and shampoo was not an issue.
This hotel is extremely convenient to the Russell Square tube station and to the British Museum.
We will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We were on the third floor courtyard side and found our room very quiet. Internet was spotty and ge...

We have stayed here a couple of times and have found it ideal for a London break.Very central and easy access to transport but we walked to most places.The hotel is perfectly adequate and rooms clean,very pleasant bar and very well organised even though it's very busy.Staff very helpful and willing to help with any queries.Lots of places nearby to eat and drink if so inclined.Breakfasts were fine with lots of choice though I have to say that,personally,I would have liked more fruit.All in all a very good hotel if you are visiting London to sightsee and do shows
