The room is very small, a single bed with basic furnishing like that of a hostel. The furnishing is also dated, like in the seventies. This is a no frill hotel, minimal service and the only positive is the good location in the CBD area. If you have a slightly bigger Budget, suggest the Lotte hotel next door.

Large comfortable (king bed) room, minimalist decor (looked new) is understated, which I found calming and inviting. Bathroom fixtures are a little dated, but everything was in perfect working order and clean. I had a delightful stay and would choose Hotel President on a...

The windows in my room did not seal well, so there was a draft when sitting close to the window. Also windows did not prevent the street noice and especially...
