We select, you rate. Scores are on a 20-point scale, and they're assigned by our members who actually stayed there. If a hotel's rating falls below 16, it's gone — so your post-stay review is actually our most important quality-control tool. Thanks for that.

Somewhere between a stately, old-fashioned grand hotel and a fun, funky little boutique hotel, there’s a gray area where you’ll find the President Hotel. Not literally, of course — try telling that to your cab driver and we can’t be held responsible for where you’ll end up. Best just to mention that it’s right behind the American embassy, and keep the conceptual stuff between us.

With just over a hundred rooms the President is clearly not meant to be offering quite the same product as the spectacular luxury hotels of days gone by. It’s more like a boutique hotel with a grand-hotel theme. The standard rooms are swanky, Art Deco–flavored, in appealing neutral color schemes — but given their compact size (not to mention the city scenes that are printed full-size on the walls of the inward-facing rooms, in lieu of actual city views) they’re more like references to luxury-hotel accommodations.

At the top of the range, though, it’s another story entirely. The suites are expansive and richly detailed, as far as they go. And there is the matter of a helipad up on the roof. But it’s the presidential suite — fittingly, perhaps — that ascends to heights undreamed of elsewhere at the President. This suite offers panoramic views of the city, a pair of bathrooms with jacuzzi tubs, a meeting room and a personal kitchen — plus a panic room that meets NATO’s official security specifications. Those windows are bulletproof, by the way.
