Grand Hotel President

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 26, 2005

The Grand Hotel President is part of the Acampora Group and of the "Charm & Relax" hotel chain.
We stranded in this hotel for 3 nights because the hotel we had reservations for (Mediterraneo - see my other tip) had been overbooked.

The President is located on Capo di Sorrento, high in the mountains overlooking the Bay of Sorrento. Location is very quiet. A walk to downtown Sorrento will take about 25 min. (downhill). The hotel has a free shuttle that doesn't run very frequently. The Sita bus stop is on the main road, about 5 min. walk from the hotel.

The GH President is perched on the hill and the entrance is at the 5th (top) floor. This means that all the rooms are on lower levels. No problem for rooms facing the Bay. They all have a splendid view. If you have a room not facing the Bay, be prepared to have a view on the parking lot or, if you're on floor 1 or 2, even on a grey wall! If you don't mind paying extra for Bay view, this is indeed extraordinary.

Unique Quality: The hotel's location is perfect if you want to be in a quiet neighbourhood.
The staff is very polite and helpful.

The pool area is not very large (towels have to be paid) but there's an extra solarium with jacuzzi on the top floor. The hotel also disposes of a professional beauty centre.

Our room was large, had a large balcony, and all modern amenities like sat-TV, mini safe, minibar, A/C, ...

The restaurant overlooks the Bay of Sorrento.
Food was very good.
Breakfast is buffet style with various rolls & bread, fresh fruit, cereals, yoghurts, cheese & cold meats, eggs, bacon, ...
Dinner is served at the table with a daily varying menu (choice from different starters, mains and desserts).

Directions: Capo di Sorrento

The Hotel was fantastic. The staff were efficient and very friendly. The food and service were excellent. Our room was very comfortable and spotless. We paid the extra for a sea view and it was worth every penny. (request a high floor)

Unique Quality: The views from the President have to be seen to be believed. It stands high on a mountain side above Sorrento. You can see the whole of Sorrento, the Bay of Naples and Vesuveus looming out of the mist across the bay. The hotel had it's own free bus service running into Sorrento and back several times a day. There was a good path into Sorrento down the mountain side for the more active guest.
