Very nice hotel with pleasant and helpful staff. If i go to Olbia again, this where i will stay. Rooms are nice and clean, with lots of space. February is not the warmest month but it was possible to enjoy the the nice balcony as well.
Inspite of Coronavirus and the ever changing rules to mitigate the impact on the economy the class of the hotel shone through. Originally booked GHP through TripAdvisor. Unfortunately with Boris wavering from one day to the next and with the rather long notice of the cancellation terms we decided to cancel our booking. Scouring the area for other alternatives I kept coming back to the GHP. Having made the decision on the hotel, we contacted directly and what a top decision that was, Elena was great and added to the feeling that we had done the right thong. Though more costly we probably ended up with a better view, balcony,view over the gulf, late checkout of 1pm, not 10am and with a late flight that was needed. However importantly we were able to cancel very late in the day. Then came Boris decision to put Italy on the destination with lurgy that we need to disinfect on the way back even though returning to a country with worse rates, ours is not the reason why. No island exception. So decision time isolate again but just for 7 days away is it worth it. Well the hotel looks good ,Elena has improved our expectation so let's do it. An empty flight over, 45 on board. Short flight, very quickly through the airport, no waiting for a test just quickly temperature check. Bus outside, hindsight wonderful but took the twenty euro taxi ride and arrived at the hotel 4 minutes later. Greeted by Elena and a temperature check. Room 312 ,what a lovely room, lovely balcony, lovely view ,ferrys in the port, London eye to the left with its light display. Right choice made , no restaurant operating due to Coronavirus! But only two minutes walkfrom Olbia. Waking up every day to the view, sitting on the balcony was wonderful, lovely cup of coffee and the view nearly heaven. Traffic can be noisy so perhaps higher floor would be better. In my opinion the noise is worth it for the view, rooms on the side don't have the full view. The maintenance of the room was perhaps the best I have come across, with clean towels daily and sheets every two days, four times in a week. Breakfast was exceptional,with lovely cold meats, cheese,cereals,fruits, yoghurt, scrambled eggs, sausage, and for me a wonderful selection of cakes. The berry cake just shading the cream by a smidgen. Orange juice on request and the coffee wasn't bad. The three staff that worked the restaurant looked the part, smart and were excellent, nothing seemed too much trouble, though I suspect they have to bite their lips at times. Quickly realised how to get busses to Pittunga beach ,the train to Costa Aranci, this was a good choice. Restaurants in the vicinity were ok , a vegetable or two would be nice to have on your plate when you don't a want a whole course. The weather at the end of October was great, the Coronavirus was respected by the majority. Corona,As I said the restaurant was closed because of Coronavirus but it appears they were able to cater for the visiting football teams do breakfast but couldn't do a packed lunch for the journey home, similarly we had to sit with our cases because no system to keep baggage safe has been devised. Notwithstanding the impact of Coronavirus measures and the road this is a great place to stay.…
Extremely kind, helpful and efficient staff. Very good quality price. It is my second time there and this time I stayed for 8 days for work. Everyone is there to make sure you are ok and to help you with all your needs. It is 2 minutes walk from the centre and all the restaurants and they have beautiful marina and sea views from the balcony. I highly recommend it.
Great Hotel with some years. The room was big and clean. They were very aware of Covid, and keep the distance. The breakfast is very good. The parking is small and free, but you can park in front of the hotel easily. The bathroom has a window with any curtains, everyone can see you!!! The service is fine.
We booked a room at the grand hotel president as on booking.com it matched the filter "parking". The note on it simply specified that it was free and no reservation. We arrived tired at 11pm to find out the parking was actually extremely undersized and there was no spot available for us. As we needed a safe parking spot we had to find another hotel capable to offer the promised parking, paying 40eur extra which won't be refunded to us by the Grand Hotel which did not comply to the offer on the website. Highly disappointed.
