  • Hotel is very old. All the rooms need an update. It wasn’t as clean as I would have liked…

    The hotel is great. Food was outstanding being an Expat worker we struggle to have good food, but this hotel was amazing. The rooms are dated but all in all it was a great stay. Will be booking for more company employees to be staying here also.

  • 8.0.Very good

    The hotel was clean and the reception was ok. However food service was poor. They claimed the hotel was fully booked and the restaurant refused taking calls for food requests

  • 2.0.Poor

    Worst Experience for a Senior suites hotel

    I regret booking there the room. The management is so poor everything about the room are so old that the to get into my room was difficult. Each time I go out of my room and returned I need to go back to the reception to enable me get into my room. The room is not clean the shower is not working everything there are old.

    Old and Dingy

    The hotel doesn’t match the standard of a 5 star. A major overhaul is in desperate need

  • 2.0.Poor

    First, I was told there was no room for me even though they confirmed in my presence that my reservation was in place. They kept my family with all the language in public for 2hrs in an area that foreigners are at risk for kidnap. I was forced to pay extra to keep my transport on standby. Eventually they gave me a room that was not meant for me and was not exactly what I paid for. The place was dirty. A call for change of bed sheets was never answered until checkout. I am not just disappointed but frustrated with all I had to pass through following this lodging at presidential hotel port harcourt.

    Secure but outdated

    Hotel security was good for Port Harcourt. The hotel has been around since it was built in the 70s and it really hasn’t had much of an upgrade since then so it’s outdated. No hairdryer or iron provided but they do put kettle in the rooms: The Chinese restaurant offers large portions of well cooked food, the platinum club is very good if you wish to party late night in a safe and secure place, however the club does not sell spirits by the glass, only spirits largr bottles at around 32k each

    Old but well maintained hotel

    Presidential Hotel is one of the old luxury hotels built in the 70s and earlier in the same class with Premier Hotel Ibadan, Metropolitan Calabar etc. Hotel is well maintained, renovation was going on during my stay and you could here the banging noise of workers during the day time. The hotel has one of the safest clubs in Port-Harcourt "Platinum Club". Easy access and very convenient location to most of the major night spots in town.
