Historical Traveller Reviews of President Hotel
Never could keep a secret!from Unniepot
The hotel as already mentioned in previous reviews is definately one for those who don't mind a little exercise. The bus into the town however, was always dependable so getting around was not a problem.
The view was to die for.... even after a week, my jaw still dropped open when I looked out over the bay from my dinner table. The photos and video still haven't done it justice!
We particularly found the restaurant staff 1st class and they were extremely courteous.
For those with children, do not feel that this is an ideal location. The hotel is quite isolated and fairly quiet. The one or two we did see, looked a little bored.
Can't wait to return!
The view says it allfrom PaulnDeb
Ok the hotel is a bit far out but the courtesy bus was fine. We found the service v good. Food was ok, especially if you liked fish. Would definately go back.
Most Fabulous Holidayfrom A TripAdvisor Member
It has absolutely stunning eye watering views over Sorrento. The staff were absolutely wonderful, in particular the restaurant staff and the headwaiter that made everyone feel very special. The food was great. The reception staff was also very helpful, there was one reception member, who we encountered once on our last day who was a little rude and abrupt and very unlike the other staff we met. This member of reception we never encountered during the holiday. I would agree that the hotel is far from the town, but it is its location, which allows this hotel to have such fabulous views. The hotel does have a bus running in the morning and evening into and from Sorrento, it would have been nicer if they were more frequent, but having said that the bus was always on time and the driver was always very pleasant and happy. I would love to return there some day.
Nice hotel but access to town difficultfrom caramck
On the positive, the hotel is very clean with big rooms, friendly staff and beautiful views over Sorrento.
However we found the hotel isolated from town and difficult to access. We were told of a path that we would bring us down in 20 minutes however it was closed for roadworks and very steep. The hotel runs a bus to town but only until 11am, then at 5pm, 9pm and 9.30pm, the last bus leaves to return to the hotel from town at 11.15pm. Walking on the main road is not an option if you value your life! Taxis are 10 euro during the day and 12 in the evening but only until midnight (for return from town) and through the hotel contact. Therefore we had to be very organised, there was no popping out to the shop or into town at a whim. I would also not recommend this hotel if you like to sleep, I could clearly hear next door snoring and the tiled floor though beautiful is very noisy as you can hear everyone walking above and outside your room.
Dinner is 7-9pm, but by 9.30pm they are closing up and it was made obvious that they wanted us to go, so if you wish to dine late it is not a good choice.
Although the hotel is very nice I would recommend a hotel nearer town where you have the views but more flexibility for access to Sorrento.
Tip: if you are on a package holiday, don't go on organised trips, public transport is much much cheaper and easy to use.
Nice hotel but the staff can be rude~from A TripAdvisor Member
Absolute Blissfrom Brevi_Baby
Ps... I wouldn't recommend a sorrento holiday for children or teenagers as the few families we meet found it difficult to entertain them. It's definitely a destination for adults.

Amazing views but long way from townfrom Sunman239
heard it all before? the view is world class and stunningfrom ed2001
the room (and double bed) was of a good size, marbled flooring a nice touch ...
staff were generally good and attentive .....restaurant was fine but not 5* (food was a bit aggregated at times) pool service and view from pool was vg
all in all ....a great hotel, but the location and THE VIEW are the 'killers' which makes this 'the must stay' place for the discerning traveller in sorrento

Top Local Tips for Sorrento
public rransport avoid organised trips and taxis..very expensive. train to pompeii 5 euros organised trip 31 euros plus entrance.bus to positano 3.6 euros trip 28 euros
Arrival/departure arrangements to and Naples Airport Ensure your travel representative explains fully your travel arrangements from and to the Airport -we were alarmed at being deposited in a bus terminal in Sorrento after being dropped off by the bus bringing us back from the Airport - this bus was too large to negotiate the road into the hotel and we eventually were transferred to a smaller bus/taxi. The return journey was of a similar nature.
