Convenient for an early ferry departure to Sicily.
Posted Oct 5, 2013
We stayed at Hotel President only as a stopover after a flight from Venice, then drive from Naples on our way to Sicily. The hotel is just a few minutes from the ferry to Messina, and was very reasonable priced. The breakfast was great, with fresh fruit, yoghurt, meat, cheese, pastries, etc. The room was ENORMOUS, and exactly like a throwback to 1980. It was actually quite funny after staying in many tiny, tiny rooms over our three week holiday. There was a lovely balconey with a distant view to the water, but nice to wake up and see the fishing boats heading out. Parking was very secure, inside locked gates.
