My wife and I stayed at this hotel as part of a “Top to Toe of Italy” holiday. I cannot comment on value, because the cost was included in the package.
The hotel is in a small town not too far from Pisa and Florence, so is a good base for touring. There is not much to do in the town, but I would recommend a trip to Montecatini Alto using the funicular railway. Montecatini Alto is high in hills overlooking Montecatini Terme and there are splendid views over the surrounding countryside. Montecatini Alto is a small town with some shops and several good restaurants – it’s worth a visit.
The Hotel President is a pleasant hotel with comfortable, clean rooms. However, you will have to ask for the air conditioning to be turned on, because it is controlled from a computer in reception. Also, it had a nasty habit of turning itself off during the night, which is irritating during hot weather.
The food and service were good. There is a small bar and comfortable lounge in the reception area and a good garden in which to take refreshments.
