The ocean view is beautiful - all the way to Robben Island and beyond! Rooms are sunny and large windows that can open fully for the sea breeze. One can hear the ocean at night and then wake up to it.

Reviewed 19 April 2016

A Cape Town property with very limited sea view, the service, decor and general mien of the President combine to make the place feel more like an institution than a hotel. It's a good base for group package, but not a destination in itself.

The staff, facilities and position of the hotel was excellent. I would have preferred not to pay for parking. I would highly recommend the President hotel. The swimming pool and outdoor facilities are wonderful, the pool is very clean. The security at the hotel is very good

Chose this hotel as the images on the website looked good. The room was clean and the view was ok. Staff are very friendly and the breakfast is good. The hotel could do with offering a free shuttle to the V&A as that may prove a good selling point. I thought I could walk there but was mistaken.
