“Great Value Hotel”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

We have just come back from our second stay at this lovely hotel.

Our room was really spacious and very clean and we both slept well. We had a large bathroom with shower and bath which was immaculate. The pluming is a little dated however and we had a leaky tap on the hand basin.

We thought the breakfast was great. There was a selection of cheese, ham, bread rolls, fruit and a lovely selected of cakes and pastries which included some of the local speciality pastries which were yummy. The staff at breakfast were really helpful and friendly and offered cappuccino etc in addition to the jugs of tea and coffee at the buffet.

We also found the staff at reception friendly and helpful. They gave us maps and helpful advice when we arrived and arranged transport for us to go back to Brindisi Airport.

Thank you to all the staff at The President we will definitely be back to stay soon.

Potentially this is a nice hotel, the public areas are a high standard. We had a nice bedroom with comfortable beds, the food was good and there was a good choice at the traditional continental breakfast buffet. Staff were very helpful and friendly although it seems that their English is a bit limited. The one big problem we had was the plumbing. The tap on the basin wouldn't turn off properly and on one occasion we flooded the bathroom because the shower wouldn't turn off, even when working it was tricky to use without getting water everywhere.

The staff were friendly & helpful, if at times difficult to locate, particularly at the bar before dinner!
The bed was large, firm & comfortable.There was a comfortable settee. The bathroom was large & adequate. The fittings were a bit dated, but if they had not been so vigourously clean ( with, I suspect vicious cleaning products over the years) they would still be looking good. The chrome fittings had been cleaned down to the brass underneath. Despite being on the road side, sleep quality was good.
Breakfast was adequate(I loved the tomatoes & large wild rocket!) There was a large bowl of apples, but all other fruit was tinned, which is a shame when fruit is so cheap locally in the markets. Coffee in jugs on the buffet was poor, but a request for cappuchinno quickly brought a cup of good hot coffee served with a smile.
Dinner ranged from quite good to just passable.

We stayed two nights at this hotel while my husband had meetings for work. The room was really big and had a really big bathroom. It looked pretty dated as far as furniture and decor and could be a bit noisy at times. The bed was a bit uncomfortable and the room felt hot when we arrived. Some people from our group complained about hot water in the shower, but it worked well for us. The breakfast was fine, plenty to eat. The people working in the hotel were all very nice. Nobody treated us rudely. We stayed in 2 other places in the area after staying in this hotel and we just found that hotel president was a little bit pricey for what it was, but it isn't a bad place.

I´ve reserved two nights for work at this hotel, and I must say it has been one of the worst experiences of my life ....
I am a person that for work travel a lot, more than once a month, and for pleasure too and I have stayed in hotels of all types, but I had never happened to go to a 4-star hotel and find a hotel that does not deserves no star.
the room smelled bad, no light, broken window, the rusty bathroom, dirty room. Breakfast also very bad, poor, to anything from a 4 star hotel. a lot of noise at night and throw the broken window came the cold, so I did not sleep for two nights almost anything .... all my coworkers, 20, came to the same opinion as me.
we would not recommend this hotel to anyone!

Staying at President was really a good choice - there are some small issues but nothing that can really make me say that it is not a good option.
We have stayed in the Standard rooms - booked through the hotel's website at a really great price. The rooms are spacious, with big bathroom and huge wardrobes.
Furniture was old - so was the TV, reminding the '80s, but this only has to do with style and aesthetics - the bed is wide and comfortable.
A minus is that there is only one plug in the room - or you have to move the desk and unplug TV and fridge...
Bathroom was OK, just shower - no bathtub, only remark about the towels : They were very clean but looked and felt old...
Service was very good, all staff we met spoke very good English and were very friendly and helpful
Breakfast was rather poor for a 4* hotel, but everything was fresh and tasty - must be the different breakfast culture as there were too many sweets available :)
Parking is not included in the price of the room, but it is a good idea to book a spot at the hotel's garage as the streets are usually busy.
Wifi is available at all areas, but you need to ask a device specific password from the reception.
Finally, location is very good - less than 10' on foot from the historical center and with easy access to the roads to other cities ( Bari, Taranto etc )
If you are not going to spend a lot of hours in the room and you do not mind the small issues mentioned it is a very good option - and the standard rooms are at a very good price - or you can try the deluxe rooms...

I have stayed in this hotel several times and have found it to be the most wonderful place to stay. Firstly, the staff are so kind and attentive to your every need - they made a real effort to make my birthday special for example, with cake and a lot of attention to my comfort and were extremely welcoming. Secondly, this hotel has everything you need - delicious food, delicious breakfast and comfortable rooms. Room service are attentive and reliable too. I really recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a comfortable stay with kind, friendly and attentive staff.

Room Tip: I would recommend the fourth floor for ultimate comfort and especially liked room 407.
