We have recently returned from the hotel president. We had a wonderful trip, the staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for you. We had a room on the 5th floor very comfortable and cleaned regularly, we used the train it visit Lucca which I loved. A lovely little town which felt laid back, walked the wall around the city and climbed the tower, we had lunch in the amphitheater which was great. I was disappointed with Florence we were ripped off two Luke warm coffees for ten euros.
Viarregio is a nice town, promenade is good to walk along in the evening , beach Irene oppositie the hotel is good, friendly staff and it is kept lovely and clean .
All in all I would recommend this hotel, the food was good four courses every night, the only criticism the menu was only changed a couple of times and it did become a bit Samey.
We hired bikes from the hotel and cycled miles along the prom which was a good thing to burn off some of the pizzas and pasta we had over eaten during the week..
