Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
Grand Hotel President captivates guests with its top-notch amenities, including impressive views, delicious dining options, and a praised shuttle service for convenience. While the spacious rooms with sea views come highly recommended, a few guests suggest they could use some updating. Despite remarks about the cost, many find the hotel's cleanliness, personable service—often mentioning Maria Grazia—and the lively atmosphere with live music to provide good value. The hilltop location is another draw, offering breathtaking vistas, with the free shuttle being a much-appreciated touch.

This hotel just oozes quality service and friendliness. The rooms may seem a little dated but it seems to add to the charm. The rooms and hotel are kept immaculately clean. We booked half board and I am so glad we did. The service in the hotel restaurant and food quality for evening dinner was superb. It was like going to eat in your favourite restaurant every night with probably the best evening view of Sorrento thrown in. Breakfast was buffet style with plenty of choice and basically carried you through to dinner! We had no issues with warm/cold food. Drinks were reasonable for Sorrento, We were aware food and drink were expensive in Sorrento but some of the prices still came as a shock. A few places had a minimum of 30 euros per head charge to eat. We did not pay the nigh on £500 supplement for a sea view room. The view from the bar, restaurant, pool area and gardens are all spectacular. The hotel is well out of town with nothing bar wise near it. The shuttle service is very efficient and the walk down the hill to the Town is quite enjoyable. If you are going to do excursions from the hotel and have mobility problems be aware sometimes you have to walk up to the main road to meet the coach. Clarify this when book it. We had the best time and would go back in a heartbeat. Thank you to all the staff at the President for making our holiday so memorable.

This was a very nice hotel to stay in. Very clean and very cozy. A delicious Breakfast was included. The only downside is that it is very far from the center of the city. It cost about 33 Euro to go one way. The hotel does provide transportation every hour.

Perfect hotel for us away from all the hustle and bustle of Sorrento. Positives. Great location high above Sorrento with fabulous views across the bay of Naples. Also away from the road so no traffic noise at all All the staff were first class, friendly and hard working. Selection of food at Breakfast buffet was very good even if the hot food was only luke warm at times. The evening 3 course meal was quality with a meat, fish and veggie choice for mains. All cooked to order. We like our food and eat decent portion sizes so asking for extra vegetables was not a problem. We are wine drinkers and found the Italian choices quite palatable. Bedrooms are spacious, very comfortable beds, loads of drawer space with either shower or bath/shower. Negative. In Autumn the sun soon disappears off the outside swimming pool late afternoon due to its location facing North East. Solution, use the top floor which has ample seats and sunbeds. The walk down to Sorrento down Scooter Lane (our nickname for it) is not as bad as some people make out. It takes 5 minutes to reach the start of this down the extensive drive. A further 15 minutes to reach the main road and then another 5 minutes into Sorrento. Add a few minutes extra coming back. A 25 minute walk for a 70 year old with arthritis in the knee. We would highly recommend this hotel. It may be too far out of the way for some although the shuttle bus every hour is very efficient in getting you into town.

What a wonderful hotel. We stayed here for a week in October. It was fairly quite and most guests were from tour groups. We opted for b&b only. The breakfasts were great. The selection of food was extensive and you could even have a glass of Prosecco. We only ate dinner once. Although it was lovely and reasonably priced. We opted for a room with a view. So glad we did. The view was stunning. Waking up each morning and looking out to Sorrento was like a dream. I would say the room was small especially as we were sharing with our daughter, so not a lot of floor space. But lots of storage. Being so high up the hill the hotel offers a courtesy bus once an hour into central Sorrento but doesn’t operate for 3 hours during mid day and the last bus from Sorrento leaves at 10.50 ( which is a little early). As it was October the pool was very cold and unfortunately so was the jacuzzi. It would have been nice if it was warmer. We will recommend this hotel to anyone and everyone. And we will be back

We stayed at Grand Hotel President for 5 nights in August 2023 for our wedding. We chose Grand Hotel President the venue for our wedding reception after visiting in April 2022 and being impressed by its incredible view over the whole of Sorrento and the Bay of Naples. We visited several other beautiful venues – but nothing that we saw had the same breath-taking panorama. Our decision to book the venue was made once we met with Anna Angela (the hotel’s events planner) to discuss the options available. She was so friendly, helpful and attentive throughout the planning process – providing quotes for various suppliers and being the main point of contact with them to help us create our dream wedding. On the day, everything went smoothly thanks to the amazing staff at Grand Hotel President. The flowers, cake and décor were even better than we imagined based on photos – and our guests really enjoyed the drinks reception, evening meal and dancing. Our hotel room had everything we needed during our stay, including a perfect sea view balcony and plenty of space to get ready on the morning of the wedding. We really enjoyed breakfast, drinks on the terrace and the convenient shuttle bus service into the centre – and we had excellent service wherever we went in the hotel. We would highly recommend Grand Hotel President to anyone considering a wedding in Sorrento, or looking for the perfect hotel to spend a relaxing holiday! It is a very special place and we will definitely be back.

The most beautiful hotel, with the most wonderful views and the most amazing and accommodating staff! Myself, my husband, our family and friends stayed at the Grand Hotel President for one week, where our wedding reception took place at the hotel. We cannot thank the staff and Anna (the hotel wedding planner) in particular for making our wedding day the best day of our lives! From start to finish our day was wonderful, ran with precision and perfection. The food, service, entertainment, decor, flowers……..everything was exceptional! The moment I contacted Anna from here, in Scotland to organise our wedding, she could not have been more accommodating and helpful. Anna made organising a wedding from over seas easy and stress free and when my husband and I finally had the pleasure of meeting her in person she was just as lovely and instantly we felt in safe hands. The wedding venue itself took our breath away, the rooftop area has recently been renovated, and is gorgeous with the most spectacular views. The private restaurant is beautifully decorated where the stunning views continue………As far as wedding venues go, this hotel has it all. As for our stay, our room was beautiful and immaculately clean, we had a sea view and is certainly worth the extra spend. Breakfast was delicious, the bar area again beautiful with again stunning views. There aren’t enough words to describe how wonderful the staff and this hotel is, it will forever hold a special place in our hearts. I cannot recommend the Grand Hotel President enough. Thank you for making our stay and wedding day so special, memories we will cherish forever. We are already looking to book for next year!

We have just returned from a fabulous holiday at the Grand Hotel President and cannot speak highly enough of this hotel. The views are amazing especially from the restaurant terrace at night. The food was delicious and plentiful especially the breakfast choice. The staff were also fantastic – they could not do enough to make our stay enjoyable and comfortable. Special mention must go to Luigi and Antonino and their team in the restaurant. They made us feel welcome and carefully explained all the choices on the menu. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The shuttle bus is useful for getting into town and back and was very punctual. If you are going to the Hotel President to relax, do yourself a favour and book a sea view room ... you will not regret it. We did not have a view from our room as we were out and about on excursions most days. However, we can’t wait to revisit the hotel in the near future!

I was amazed by the views off of our balcony! The complementary hotel shuttle goes into the town of Sorrento every hour and picks up every hour from 8:30am-10:30pm. You do not need to waste money on taxis and you have a relaxing, resort feel nestled in the hillside cliffs. Pay the few dollars extra and get a room with a balcony and a view- it is well worth the money! You could not find a more picturesque setting. The rooms are not fancy, a little dated, but colorful and extremely clean with a refrigerator and everything you need. Let’s face it, you do not come to Italy to stay in your hotel room! There are plenty of places to lounge privately on the grounds and there are several verandas. The bar and restaurant have outdoor seating, all with spectacular views of the bay of Naples and Sorrento. I wish I lived at this hotel! Another review mentioned the pool is not heated and that is true, however, you cannot beat this hotel, particularly for the price. I would not stay anywhere else in Sorrento!

This hotel is absolutely perfect if you want a brilliant balance of Italian authenticity with breathtaking views of the Sorrento peninsula. The choice and variety of food provided with half board was superb, however what made it especially memorable for us as a family was the exceptional service provided by each of the maitre d’hotel Luigi, Piero & Antonio. Our housekeeper was also full of energy, positivity & joy everyday, not forgetting there is also an incredibly convenient shuttle bus that buzzed in and out of the town centre hourly … the reality is having stayed in numerous hotels it’s always the connectivity of people that make the difference, add that to this absolutely incredible location and this hotel will not disappoint, quite the opposite, you’ll remember it & then recommend it to those who’ll also appreciate the quality of an entirely complete experience.

We had a super stay in this very friendly hotel. All the staff were helpful and always had a smile for you! Our room overlooked Vesuvius and it was lovely to sit on the balcony after dinner and just relax. Our room was a fair size with the bed looking out towards the sea and Vesuvius. What a view to wake up to. We had half board so enjoyed a meal in the restaurant every night. Nothing disappointed - the food was excellent and we sat outside and just enjoyed the warm evenings. Special mention at breakfast for the omelette lady (I think Yolanda) - I am now copying her way of cooking them - just need a bit more practice. Most days we walked into Sorrento via the path at the side of the main hotel sign. Motor cycles used it too but you could hear them coming. It took us about 20 minutes to walk into town, and although there is a shuttle bus from the hotel each way, we always walked back.
