Poor 2.0
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

Good 6.0
Hotel is very old. All the rooms need an update. It wasn’t as clean as I would have liked. The pool already is nice though and so is the gym. Security is very very good.

Exceptional 10.0
Good stay for some time
The crew is very friendly all over. but special at the pool bar outside Thanks very much to all
Hendrikus, gb3 night business trip
Poor 2.0
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Secure but outdated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The hotel has been around since it was built in the 70s and it really hasn’t had much of an upgrade since then so it’s outdated.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.

Good, clean and safe environment.
Good, safe and clean environment. Staff always friendly and eager to assist when needed. Pool and gym clean and in good condition. A little bit rundown, but holding and competitive. A good place to stay compared to competing hotels.
