HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
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.

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

Location was excellent, because we did the red bus during the day and one of the bus stops is just around the corner from the President Hotel, so we just drop on and off at the hotel...
