The Radisson Hotel President is a good hotel but could be in a better location. As you turn into the street where the hotel is located, you will think to yourself "this can't be the right street". The street is not made up very well and there are boxes and other trading items all over the place. The walk from the hotel to the blue mosque takes about fifteen to twenty minutes. But once inside the hotel, everything is done very nicely. The staff are friendly and helpful and there is an English style pub on the ground floor. The rooms were perfectly adequate and clean. The roof terrace was clean and quiet but the quality of food from the terrace restaurant could have been much better. A lovely hotel with a nice swimming pool and sauna.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is located within 2 blocks of Grand Bazaar and within a 10 minute walk of all the historic sightseeing places. The breakfast buffet is spectacular.
