I stayed at the Hotel Presidency a few months ago and was bitterly disappointed with my experience. For starters, none of the photos of the bedroom in their website is similar to the real deal. The hotel rates itself 4 stars but from personal experience, it barely looks even 3 stars. I stayed in 2 different rooms with my family. The first room did not have proper air conditioning hence the room was constantly warm. Air conditioner was also leaking into the wardrobe. The room was filled with mosquitoes. The next morning, breakfast was cold. We then got our room changed to a 'better' one. This time we faced the problem of no hot water services (we brought this up with the manager and was told this was due to the high occupancy rate of the hotel and nothing could be done about it!), the electrical plug points in the bathroom was not working and again breakfast the next day was cold and food was not sufficient to accommodate all hotel guests. The hotel rooms look nothing like the website photos- the photos portray new rooms, however on arrival- the rooms had a musky odor, furnitures were really old and their linen smelled. Never again will I set foot in this hotel again.
