“Nothing Memorable”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

Driving up to this hotel is like entering the soviet union with a facelift. And it turns out that is what this is.

Behind the security guards and the entrance barrier on the driveway is a great big entrance and large public area. The architecture looked like it was built in the 70s (?) but the inside was fairly modern.

I arrived late and left early, so was barely there really. Check-in was easy (payment up-front), the room was functional and clean.

Breakfast was in a large room hidden away behind the conference rooms. Buffet-style, bland food.

In retrospect I would spend a little longer and find somewhere with some character and charm. I booked in a rush and didn't look around too much.

The President is a very good business hotel. it's in the business/conference center part of town so it;s not in a charming part but it's great if you have a conference around there.
comfortable rooms, friendly staff. The free breakfast is very good with a lot of choices and fresh options.

Evidently The President has been recently upgraded (perhaps for the Euro?) and as a result the rooms are clean, modern, and comfortable. The bathrooms were especially nice - not fancy but provided everything you could need. Excellent light, good shower pressure, and hairdryers that work! Hotel service was very good. It is located on a hill so the walk back to the hotel can be a good workout! Breakfast buffet was extensive and provided many good options.

I have previously stayed at the Hyatt and the Intercontinental and while I very much enjoyed those properties, I found their prices to be quite outrageous. The President provides a good alternative. I will return to this hotel as it was a very reasonable price point for a very good quality product.

We needed a place to stay for one night so we randomly choose President hotel. Later we needed 3 more nights and not even think about any other hotel. The staff greatly helped us about anything since its our first time in Kiev we need lots of info. Clean, nice. Close to main areas in city. Bar was great with a lot of choices and good prices. Rooms and bath are really good but single beds are a bit small but thats not a big problem.

If we will come Kiev again. Hotel President will be our first choice.

Our room at the hotel was very comfortable. The facility is post-independence so doesn't have the Soviet feel. We found that it was much cheaper to eat in the bar area rather than the restaurant. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The concierge made the appointment for the taxi to take us to the airport- very helpful. He also made a sign for the taxi driver with our name on it so we would get the right taxi.

Nice hotel for conferences in Kiev, friendly staff, not so old rooms, fine location.

Good breakfast, 24h local lobby restaurant with Ukrainian authentic food (in addition to european cuisine).

Wifi connectivity is Ok, bandwidth is more or less acceptable.

Conference facilities are 4 out of 5 (not so new, but still Ok).

The building is in a brutal Eastern European style and the rooms pretty much identical to many other mid range hotels I have stayed in. Possibly using the same furniture company!

Food and service is good. The gym and sauna is of a good standard and the hotel is a good choice for a business visit. I discovered that taxis can be quite hard to come by in Kiev so be warned

Hotel is a long walk of about 30 minutes from the main sites such as the museum of the Great Patriotic War and churches but easy to find
