President Hotel, Cape Town

Great hotel-Great value and highly recommended
Great value for money. Very secure and superb location close to the sea. I would have liked a room with a balcony but the panoramic view was beautiful and the windows were large and opened up so not a big deal. Breakfast amazing. Staff are all outstanding and willing to help. I gather this hotel went through a bit of a ropey patch and someone has definitely got hold of the place and spruced it up and got the staff really working well and in harmony with each other. Well done-I will definitely stay here again and highly recommended

It was an excellent stay and even when I had a problem with the newly renovated shower it was promptly fixed. One problem the 1 and only USB outlet didn’t work so charging my cell phone was a problem.

Nice property but so many issues
Buffet breakfast has many delicious offerings. Table service is friendly but the people preparing eggs to order seem unhappy but maybe that’s because many of the guests are rude to them. Shower water was unpredictable - sudden changes from cold to hot to cold made for an unpleasant experience. Front desk staff also seem overwhelmed but again - many rude guests interrupting them constantly. No electrical outlets near the bed - this is 2017, get with the times.

Horrible customer service!
I had great expectations for the President hotel as I had stayed there within weeks of it opening in the 90s. Boy was I wrong. We arrived and somehow the hotel had a system glitch and the room book was "unavailable" despite a booking 3 months in advance. We booked a double sea view room (I had even called to confirm the room a couple of days in advance and all looked good). When we arrived we were given a twin mountain view room which was TINY. Our luggage barely fit. We were told by the front desk manager Kassiem that we should check back the next day for our originally booked room type and that we would recieve a discount for the 2 nights. A day goes by and no room available. Finally on the second day we were moved to our booked room type helped by Thomas (who actually was very helpful). The breakfast was good but service lacking as it took 20+ minutes to get some coffee....Upon checkout the front desk associate had no record of any discount we were supposed to get and back and forth emails from Kassiem have not resulted in any successful discount despite him saying its been processed and confirmed with Expedia/Hotels.com. How on earth can you run a business and not have the ability to provide a discount/refund?! It is absurd and its been 2 weeks now. I'm starting to think it was a farce to calm us when our room wasn't available. Will not be back!
