“Central hotel in Lecce”
Reviewed 25 February 2013

Hotel is located very near the old town, about 7 mins walk. Hotel provides free WIFI and the room is huge and spacious. Staffs are helpful and the breakfast is great. But the hotel is ageing and I suggest hotel need a medium degree of renovation especially the lighting.

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and it was great. It was right in the heart of the city centre and within walking distance to everything. The hotel room were spacious and comfortable. They were also very clean and the staff was very helpful. The breakfast was amazing! The food was fresh and there was a lot of variety. For those who have access to a car, I would definitely recommend driving to Otranto and Galipoli since they are only about 20 min away. Both Cities were by the Adriatic sea and the views were amazing. All in all, I would recommend this hotel since it is inexpensive, compared to many other italian hotels, but very good quality.

The best thing is central location, very close to the historic city center. The property is rather old and need some refreshments. The room are quite spacious and clean, but the decor is old like from 80's and looks very used. The bathroom wasn't comfy. No Wifi access in the room (or it doesn't work). The staff were friendly and professional. Good breakfast.

We stayed here one night of our 10day trip in southern Italy. The hotel has a car park underneath with was spacious, and we did not needed to leave our car key with the concierge, just the numberplate of our car. The check-in clerk was very nice and gave us a map of the city and explained everything very clearly. The was also very spacious and clean, the wifi has the fastest connection during my whole trip. We had lunch at the hotel restaurant because it was raining and we did not wanted to search for place to eat in the rain.The waiter service was good and the food was excellent. Walking to see the rest of the city was easy.
The bed was comfortable and the selection of choice for breakfast was good. I like the overall experience and recommend this hotel for anyone who wants to visit Lecce and its surrounding area.

We spent 4 nights here and found it to be a perfect choice for our first trip to the Puglia region of Italy. We loved Lecce and liked being able to walk to the city center from the hotel. We picked up a rental car in Lecce on our second day there and were able to park in a secure hotel lot for $10 Euro per day. From there we drove to Gallopi, Otranto, and Leuca. The breakfast (included) had many options and was good. Internet access in the room was fine. Our only issue was with the lighting in the room. There were only two lamps and no overhead lighting--it made reading in the evening a challenge. It's a large business-style hotel near shopping. We liked it very much!

The President Hotel is large with cavernous public spaces beautifully cooled in the summer heat of southern Italy. We used it as a base for exploring Gallipoli, Otranto, Matera and Alberobello as part of a Great Rail Journeys of the World Tour. Very spacious rooms were a welcome change from the rather spartan hotels used until then.Bathrooms too were modern and large with every possible facility. Moreover the food, even that supplied to tour groups, was of good quality and served by cheerful friendly waiters. The Antipasta was a delight here as well as main courses and deserts, the fruit was delicious also and ripe for once. As there are no restaurants within an easy walk, we had lunch in once on a non touring day and the choice from the ALC was excellent. Our Langoustines Thermidor were a treat. Local wines are cheap and the reds very quaffable though whites were less so. If one had to find any fault with this hotel, then perhaps it's distance from the Old Town might be a negative and the lack of a garden or a pool, especially in summer, is a minor negative. All in all with cheery receptionists and a willing bartender, the President will not let you down.
