                    7.4

                    hotel staff excellent!! really warm and nice especially the girl at receptiont!!also big rooms- a bit art deco- and the breakfast was great!!!!really really good

                    it was a bit dark- a bit old fashioned which made it look a bit art deco but at points a bit old, finally my room had a bit of dust as if it was cleaned not so recently- although others in the group didnt notice this

                  • Couple
                    7.8

                    Location was good, staff was friendly. good value for money, had a pleasant stay.

                    The breakfast was poor (only continental breakfast), very little choice. The room & furniture was in good condition, but quite old.

                  • Older travelers
                    8.8

                    All staff were really friendly and spoke good English, even when you tried and speak Italian.The room was large and clean with a well stocked mini-bar. There was plenty to eat at breakfast which was made up of a cold buffet ranging from delicious cakes through cerials to hams and cheeses. The local custard tarts were a winner.

                    The hotel is very dated in an almost retro chic way, very early 80's. The walls to our room were paper thin so 'athaletic' niebours kept us awake until the early hours.I felt the parking was a bit expensive (€10 per night) but for a city I suppose that was the going rate.

                  • Couple
                    4.6

                    service at the desk, location near centre, easy parking access

                    decor from the 70ies, poor bathroom equipment, too dated, needs a major renovation

                  • Couple
                    8.8

                    The room, the service and the garage.

                    I did not like the quality of the computers in business area (internet point)

                  • Older travelers
                    6.2

                    The staff were very friendly and tried to be helpful in every way. Their attitude was to be concerned that we were comfortable and our needs were met. The business center computer, printer and scanner was very important to us during this stay. Our room was very large. The hotel is located in a fashionable shopping area about 10 minute walk from the old city.

                    This hotel is large and impressive when viewed from outside and was once a luxury hotel but is now a bit "tired' and out of date in some areas. The tv had very few channels where as most hotels in Italy have a "sky box" which provide satelite service to many channels. We needed to have the shower repaired. The wifi would not work in our room...only in the hall or the lobby. There was an additional charge of 10 Euros per day for parking and a small charge for wifi.

                    7.0

                    The location of the hotel was great for my short trip to Lecce (for bussiness). It gave the chance to walk around the city without needeing additional transport. The restaurant is great.

                    The missunderstandings with one member of the staff; did not meet the hotel standards.

                    8.8

                    We were very happy to stay at the presiident hotel. may we suggest the possibil;ity of having a courtesy coach to take clients to the old part of the city and back,

                    There was nothing we did not like.

                  • Group of friends
                    7.8

                    The rooms at this hotel were spacious and comfortable and the staff very efficient and welcoming. Excellent cuisine in the dining room and a substantial breakfast.

                    The decorating seemed a tad outdated, though I wondered if they were aiming for kind of a retro look.

                  • Older travelers
                    8.8

                    The location was very close to the city center and walking to city sights. The staff was extremely friendly and fairly fluent in English. They provided excellent directions and made reservations for dinners throught Lecce. The rooms are slightly dated, but clean and functional. The breakfast area was well staffed and food quality was above average. Parking on site was important, although cost was 10 Euro per day. Would absolutly return to hotel on trip to Lecce.

                    Spacious rooms, good location

                    When we arrived we found out that we couldn't park the car at the garage, eventhough booking's site said that no reservation was needed, so we had to park it to another garage nearby which was more expensive. Despite the size of the rooms, the furniture is very old and worn out and definately not impecably clean. The bathroom water was leaking and the bathtub was draing the water. Television was not working. Breakfast was of rather poor quality. The hotel is all about appearances - its lobby is impressive - and no essence.

                    The Hotel President is located an easy stroll from the old city and the many sights of Lecce. It is clean with friendly staff and excellent facilities and a delicious breakfast!

                    I always stay here when in Lecce. This is a great hotel, with huge rooms and one of the best breakfasts. It's right at the center of the city only 3 mins walk to Piazza Mazzini and 6 mins walk to piazza St.Oronzo.

                    I dont like that some of the staff dont remember me and ask for my passport, while the case is I stay here almost once a month.

                    This is a very professional well-located hotel, just a short 10-minute walk to the historic centre. There is also onsite parking (an additional fee applies). We found our room very comfortable and spacious (if slightly dated). The staff were very friendly and able to assist with our requests for information. We would be happy to recommend this hotel to other travellers.

                    The location was perfect for us as family lived just down the street.

                    The air-conditioning in the rooms was not very effective especially in room 602 and in temperatures in the high 30's low 40's it meant that sleeping wasn't easy.
