The Hotel President represents a pretty good deal in terms of value for money, at least in the shoulder season (October). The location is reasonable: a five minute walk down the hill to the centre and the beach. There are two pools, one for splashing and one for swimming, and the usual amenities. One big disappointment was the food. We...

We choose this hotel for the Ironman event and booked it via Nirvana (a local agent in the NE of England). We arrived late on the Thursday 29th and had booked the hotel for 5 nights, half board. We arrived and approached the reception area to be greeted by a gentleman. It was not a warm "welcome to our hotel"...

Hotel President is a three star hotel, and by location and being a bit dated I would not say it is great. But if you do not need a modern hotel, do not mind walking a few minutes to the beach, if you understand that for what you pay the food is not going to be fantastic, then you have...

I stayed for IM Barcelona and thought it was good value for money and friendly to the needs of those taking part. However my white bag with expensive equipment in it, was removed/ stolen from reception area post race which I am not happy about and hence my lower rating. That said, i cant knock the hotel for anything else....

We stayed for 5 nights during Ironman Barcelona and this hotel was in a perfect location. A 10 minute walk (if that) to the beach. Great food (we stayed half board) - massive selection at breakfast and dinner. Lovely wine (2 euros for a 1/4 litre!), cheap bar prices, good coffee in the bar. The pool area is spotless (jet...

Stayed here for IM BCN , perfect location, Quick check in. Only a 5 minute walk from finish area and registration and 10 minute walk from transition. If you are using Ship My Tri Bike the collection/drop off point is just a 5 minute walk behind the hotel. We stayed half board, there was a good selection and variety of...

Stayed here for 4 nights over Ironman weekend (the race start is just over 10 minutes walk from the hotel). Normally wouldn't go full board but did this time for convenience and the food was perfect for my needs. The hotel put on an early breakfast for athletes on the morning of the race from 05.30. I would suggest that...

Just back from a lovely Holiday in Calella, not somewhere that comes to mind when looking for a good experience as always assumed the Costa Brava was more for the party set. However as we were taking Daughter & Husband with us we bit the bullet and done our research. What can I say, this Hotel is classed as 3...
