“Wow! Best hotel in Olbia”
Reviewed 20 August 2013 via mobile

Spacious, clean, amazing staff, great location and value for money! After an unexpected extension of our stay in Olbia we jumped online to find a hotel for the night. As it was August and had previously found many hotels fully booked, we expected the worst or high prices but, found the Grand to be cheap, spacious and very relaxing amid the August peak tourist chaos.
reception staff were super friendly, giving us a sea view room, extending our check out and recommending a great restaurant.
Rooms were huge and well appointed. Balcony overlooking port was very relaxing. We overslept and missed breakfast but staff offered to bring us croissants and coffee free of charge.

We had an unexpected two night stay at 'The Grand Hotel President' in Olbia...what a lovely hotel!! Great location for the 'old town' and also for catching ferries, etc. Extremely clean, very nice breakfast, very pleasant, helpful staff, etc., especially Elena! If we could give six or seven stars for service, we would for this hotel...nothing was too much trouble! Well done Grand Hotel President, you made our unexpected stay an extremely pleasant one!

Sardinia is beautiful and my stay was great. The hotel Grand President is very good and elegant. Beautiful room, the bed was comfortable. I liked very much the bathroom with a large shower and bath. Room with balcony and great view. Good location and close to the port!

Just returned from a week at the hotel with 9 members of my family; all of us there for a family wedding. The hotel was spotlessly clean, and the rooms were spacious and in classic style. The hotel is in a prime position with superb views of the port `and surrounding areas. The staff could not have been more helpful or efficient. We all have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the front have awesome views from the balcony

I stayed there for 2 weeks in April for business. My room was very clean and spacious. It had a view looking out at the port with a nice balcony, a marble floor, large shower and queen bed. The staff was very helpful and friendly. It was quiet despite my room facing the front of the hotel where there is a roundabout. It is only minutes from the historic center. I will certainly stay there again when I return to Olbia. One detail to keep in mind is that the parking lot is very small, 12 cars, and there is no street parking right in front of the hotel. But there is a side street that you can park on. If you prefer, read my review of this hotel in Italian.

No pool or gym but would certainly return. There is a sun deck with great view on the room but no pool. Only other negative aspects for me would be the fact that the rooms dont have full blackout curtains and the internet is very slow loading some pages...hard if you are trying to work. But it is FREE as is the breakfast. Its basic but good.
ALL staff are friendly and if there is one thing I will remember about this hotel is how helpful and courteous the staff are. Thank you for making us feel welcome!.
Great location by the way...just a couple of minutes walk from the centre of town, and great views (and balconies) of the bay from most rooms.
Amazing value. Will be back again next week......

Room Tip: Ask for a room at front of hotel

The hotel is excellent. Actually, I had booked my stay at Olbia with the Mercure, which is quite good, but a bit far from the historic city, the restaurant and bars.
The President is a few footsteps away from everything and is very comfortable. The rooms are classic and very clean.I decided to move to this hotel, because it has a great location.
The only negative point there is the internet: even though I was able to use Skype to communicate, it was very difficult to surf the web. Websites like Facebook, for exemple won't even load. Working was a bit hard due to that, but it did not made me regret moving to this hotel.
I would definetely return to this hotel if I had to return to Olbia.
