Pleasant stay in excellent location
As a family we booked 3 rooms at the President for a weekend get together. The rooms were comfortable and clean and tidy. The rooms were service cleaned again after first night. The staff were pleasant and helpful. The big bar area is excellent for relaxing. The location is great, near British Museum and around corner from Russell Square tube station. We had a good price and I would definitely consider staying there again. Thank you!

OK stay.
It was ok nothing special for the price you pay but that’s London prices. Room was small, decent size wardrobe only two power sockets in the room none near the bed. Breakfast was ok although both the bacon and sausage has only been threatened with going in a pan as they were hardly cooked. Reasonable selection of food. On site parking needs to be paid separately and £24 for an overnight stay is ok for central London. Good location just off Russell Square. It was ok.

Great stay, would not hesitate to stay here again.
Good location, friendly staff, big room, lovely breakfast. Good soundproofing so no noise coming from outside, could hear occasional sounds from other rooms but nothing too bad. The only negative was they took ages to check me in - not sure why but would've been annoying if I'd been running late for something. Nice area, 2 minutes walk from tube station.
