A place in the Sun

Save for some remedial attention required to the air-conditioning the stay was most enjoyable

Good location

Nothing much that you'd be interested in as we hardly stayed at the hotel. It says I need to add a bit more to the review but not really sure what to add other than mentioning it was a good location for the price

Nel complesso una vacanza ottima location stupenda a due passi dal mare, personale efficiente e cordiale cibo eccellente pulizia della camere ottima solamente piccole pecche tipo le sdraio per prendere il sole in piscina sono vecchie necessiterebbero di essere cambiate l'aria condizionata in camera e solo on off vecchia anche quella. Per il resto da ritornare sicuramente lo consiglio

Great hotel with a great location

The President is an excellent hotel perfectly positioned with great amenities. The buffet breakfast in the morning is impressive - the service is a little sloppy - but the hotel staff are friendly and they try to please

Fantastic hotel but pathetic service

Posted Jan 17, 2016 on Hotels
Check-in meant to be at 2pm but we had to wait till 4:30pm before we could get our room. No apologies was made for this, and the staff was quite abrupt. Wifi was a nightmare to sort - I had to phone 3 times before I could get it sorted. Waited 2 hours before we got the iron and bottle opener we had to request. Coffee making facilities in room tasted awful- take your own. Lady named Gladys who worked in restaurant on 9th January at 9:25am making omeletts/eggs was the rudest staff member we've ever witnessed. She barked at you when asking what you wanted to order, then served all the men first and made the ladies wait. Even the men were shaking their heads.And she'd ignore some people when they spoke to her. We've come to this hotel for over 17 years now, but the service has gone backwards. Very sad as the hotel is lovely and one of the best spots in Cape Town.

Great Location

Very nice hotel in a great location, rooms very comfortable and clean. Lots of staff around to help, but still drink and food orders took some time to arrive, but to be fair this wasn't restricted to the President hotel, I found this to be the case in almost everywhere we ate and drank in Cape Town

Nice hotel close to the beach

Posted Dec 24, 2015 on Wotif
Pros: Location and facilities
Cons: Service at the bar was a bit slow at times
Location: Beach, pool, shops, restaurants and tourist sites all nearby
Friendly staff, good facilities, happy hour drinks two for the price of one. Good value and perfectly situated for beach, shops and restaurants. Hop on hop off bus stop around the corner . Felt very safe and secure. Would highly recommend this hotel

When we arrived the incorrect room was booked despite my request when booking. They quickly changed our room, when we got to the room it wasn't ready. The next day we waited from 9:30am for our room to be made up, by 1pm it had still not been done. Very disappointed.
