“Great Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012

I stayed there for 2 weeks in April for business. My room was very clean and spacious. It had a view looking out at the port with a nice balcony, a marble floor, large shower and queen bed. The staff was very helpful and friendly. It was quiet despite my room facing the front of the hotel where there is a roundabout. It is only minutes from the historic center. I will certainly stay there again when I return to Olbia. One detail to keep in mind is that the parking lot is very small, 12 cars, and there is no street parking right in front of the hotel. But there is a side street that you can park on. If you prefer, read my review of this hotel in Italian.

No pool or gym but would certainly return. There is a sun deck with great view on the room but no pool. Only other negative aspects for me would be the fact that the rooms dont have full blackout curtains and the internet is very slow loading some pages...hard if you are trying to work. But it is FREE as is the breakfast. Its basic but good.
ALL staff are friendly and if there is one thing I will remember about this hotel is how helpful and courteous the staff are. Thank you for making us feel welcome!.
Great location by the way...just a couple of minutes walk from the centre of town, and great views (and balconies) of the bay from most rooms.
Amazing value. Will be back again next week......

The hotel is excellent. Actually, I had booked my stay at Olbia with the Mercure, which is quite good, but a bit far from the historic city, the restaurant and bars.
The President is a few footsteps away from everything and is very comfortable. The rooms are classic and very clean.I decided to move to this hotel, because it has a great location.
The only negative point there is the internet: even though I was able to use Skype to communicate, it was very difficult to surf the web. Websites like Facebook, for exemple won't even load. Working was a bit hard due to that, but it did not made me regret moving to this hotel.
I would definetely return to this hotel if I had to return to Olbia.

We only had one night at the Grand Hotel President, but it was delightful. The hotel has a touch of old world elegance and our room was large, beautifully appointed, with a wonderful bathroom. The staff was courteous and helpful and breakfast was delicious.

Room Tip: I don't know if there's a bad room in this hotel. We were in the back, but i think the fron...

We had a pleasure to live at this cosy and very comfortable hotel 7 days during our participation at the International Choir Sacred Music festival in Olbia.
Our impression in a couple of words - Very Good Hotel with a very friendly and helpful staff.
Advantages of locality:
1) Hotel located not far from the passengers ferry port (may be the closest hotel to the port) but in the silent place and in a few minutes walk from the central street of old part of Olbia.
2) In a 5-7 minutes walk there is a railway station and a bus station of bus which goes to the nice sandy beaches around Olbia. The season`s scedule of these busses (#4 and #5) you can receive on reception.
3) near the hotel there is a transport interchange if you want to go by car to other parts of Sardinia.

About the breakfasts - good enough choice of food for the good mood and pleasant starting of the new day, indeed

We would like to say many thanks for the comfort and hospitality to all staff of this Hotel.
