It's not the first time for me to stay at the President. I am amazed that the reception staff remembered who I am and welcomed me. The services at the hotel is of an above average standard which I can confidently say that it has been maintained since my last visits to the President.

Reviewed 2 weeks ago

My wife & I spent 3 days on our trip this time, and we found that the hotel services, room, cleanliness food and staff had improved dramatically from when we stayed there 2 years ago, The breakfasts are amazing, as were the dinners. We will only stay at this hotel when we are in Cape Town.

Excellent Hotel overall, just think that a few minor adjustments must be made to make it Perfect. Love the Espresso machine that was brought into the rooms gives really that personal touch. Remove the wall-mounted shampoo and body-wash containers in bathrooms and lastly think of more variety options at Breakfast, always the same setup of Bacon, Eggs, Mushrooms, Sausages.

Just look at your carpets, they are not very clean - stained. Some of the frontline ladies can be friendlier, especially the lady at the restaurant. Some of the waiters were quite slow and it took long for food to arrive.

I had a lovely stay at the President, the property has rare space for a Cape Town Hotel that I always enjoy. Room was excellent, service friendly and the WIFI was super fast. The President is my default Cape Town Hotel for a business trip
