Hotel President

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed here for three nights in october 2017. The staff were helpful and courteous. The room was large and comfortable, although the furniture was a bit worn. The bathroom shower was decrepit! Breakfast was good. Lecce is a beautiful, lively and interesting city, with some gorgeous Baroque architecture and two Roman Theatres. Eating out is easy, lots of restaurants and cafes, and good shopping. The hotel has a basement car park.

I enjoyed the 5 nights I stayed at this hotel. The staff were fantastic and very helpful and the rooms comfortable, but showing signs of wear and tear. The shower head was very temperamental and had a mind of its own, spraying the whole bathroom on one occasion. Probably the best $ star hotel in town.

Rather stuck in a time warp but clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Good WiFi in the room and excellent and plentiful toiletries. The food was reasonable but after a few days became very boring. A twenty minute walk into the old part of town

Nice place, good wifi, indoor parking, the staff wasn't very friendly and the food of the restaurant is awful but for sleeping it is very confortable. It is well located, near the town, shops and restaurants.

The travelagency booked this hotel for us. The only good thing I can say about it is that the staff was really friendly. The room itself was big, but dark, very sober interior, it smelled bad (like mold, moist, old)... a bit like your grandma's wardrobe. The room was situated at a very busy road, could not open and had some kind of barrs before it. And in the hallway it smelled like somebody smoked sigarettes... it felt more like a prison then a hotel. Please go Some place else. We did! Lecce is beautiful and has so much more to offer! The location is also bad, way too far out of the historical centre. No way it deserves 4 stars.

I have been in this hotel for one night, honestly I did not booked it, it was made from other person, the hotel need a big refurbishment, only the reception area looks nice, the rooms and bathrooms are big but old, old, old style, even the towels need to be changed at least, everywhere is very clean as a good point, my bedroom had the window to a courtyard of block of flats (it is not a nice view), in the breakfast room, they do not offer many options, only cooked ham, no scrumble eggs or fried, only boiled eggs, no fresh fruits, only pineapple and apricot in light syrup, when the juices run out, they do not bring more, the waiters do not smile with customers when someone ask for something, miserable faces, selection of pastries where ok, this hotel must be considered 2 or 3 stars as maximum. my room was in front of the laundry section due that door was always open (508), the bed was comfortable, the tv with some channels, a good point is the historical center is only 10 minutes walk from the hotel. good location. do not only take a look at the price, look for quality.

Central Hotel with car parking facilities underneath hotel with over 50 parking spaces. Excellent customer service from reception staff. Very good rooms , clean with good facilities. Breakfast served in dinning area and had all types from pastries to yoghurt so. Short 5 minute walk to main shopping area and all bars and restaurants. Lecce is well worth a visit

Dated hotel, in need of refurbishment. Missing what you expect from a 4 star hotel nowadays. Been there for business so not booked on my own, so cannot comment on value for money. Breakfast was average. Location is good,as situated within walking distance from Lecce's main square ( S.Oronzo).

We stayed for 1 night at this hotel. Short distance from city centre (1 km or 15 mins walking). Hotel rooms are quite comfortable, nice beds. The hotel has its age although the owners are doing their best to refurbish it. It is a place I would recommend!

Α very modern, clean and comfortable hotel. Although it was difficult the first time for us to find it, we paid off by the fact that it is close to the city center and you can move comfortably on foot. Just 6-7 blocks away form Piazza S. Oronzo and amfiteatro Romano. We had a large room although no view because we were traveling in a group and you have to be lucky to have a room with view... The bathroom was also large, with all the necessary things. The breakfast buffet, enough for our tastes, with good variety. The important, a variety of cheese and yoghurt, Cretan "dakos" with the accompanyings and fruits. Not great variety of sausages. No omelet, just boiled eggs (for those who like it. I don't know if you can order...). Not always available Wifi. Very helpful staff. It was a very good choise of our travel agency.
