“Very comfortable stay, great hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2011

We stayed at this hotel at the end of August and we thought it was very good value for money. The room was spotless, very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was not too impressive, but was good enough. All in all, I would definitely recommend it. It's location is also quite convenient if you want to visit the north east of Sardinia.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2011

This is a business hotel in the city centre and feels like one. Don't expect any more and you'll be satisfied.

Cons: No pool, front desk staff not the most enterprising or proactive (eg, when asked about opening hours to local pharmacy or restaurants, they just looked at us blankly and replied they did not know, although when asked to please call and find out they were happy to help -- it just never occurred to them to take the initiative to phone on their own), bed linens quite worn and pilled, poor recommendations and directions for dining and beaches, poor noise insulation between rooms, internet and WiFi constantly down.

Pros: Proximity to Olbia's Umberto Corso and the nightly festival over the summer months (live music, street vendors, food carts, outdoor films -- quite lively! we enjoyed it but can see it being too loud for others as it runs late), generous with toiletries, housekeeping, friendly (but not the brightest, see above) front desk staff.

OK overall, but would not stay in again.

Room Tip: If it's peak season & sensitive to noise late at night, don't get a front facing room.

Excellent hotel with style and ambience. The stay in it is a real pleasure. We loved the nice balcony of the room with the lovely view of the port and the lagoon.

Room Tip: A room with a view of the port but on upper floor to avoid street noice.

We stayed in Grand Hotel President in Olbia during a one week tour of Sardegna, which was our honeymoon.

We had conveyed this much to the hotel and we were positively surprised to find champagne and strawberries waiting us to the room.

The hotel was spotlessly clean. Rooms spatious and with a heavy-classic luxurious feeling.

The breakfast was very basic including cold cuts and cheese, boiled eggs, cereals and fresh bakery. A bonus point, the really good coffee served from the bar.

The hotel is smartly placed directly by the marina offering nice port view but also 5min walk to the restaurant center of olbia and right by the highway. So if you are looking for a hotel to use as getaway, location is perfect. If you look for a place to hang and relax, then this is not the place for you.

One setback for the hotel is the absence of any sort of pool, sauna or spa.

Room Tip: ask sea view
