The spacious and prestigious structure represents a valued reference point for the business clientele; it is ideal for conferences, conventions, work-shops, exhibitions and cultural meetings, thanks to a Congress Centre equipped with the most modern and sophisticated audio-video support systems, WI-FI connections and spaces dedicated to hosting coffee breaks, brunches and buffets. There are nine halls for meetings and events – the main hall can seat 450 people – covering 1000 m2 in total; the multi-functional exhibition areas, ideal for temporary stagings and expositions, confirm the versatility of the Hotel President’s Congress Centre.
The President hotel, located in Lecce, few minutes from the city historic centre and only 2 km from the train station, was built in 1970 and is conceived to specially meet the requirements of the most discerning business customers, but also to create an ideal starting point to explore the unique beauties of Salento.

All the accommodation solutions are designed to meet the requirements of every single guest, proposing different solutions like rooms for smokers and non-smokers, with bathtubs or showers, and communicating rooms for families to guarantee a sojourn in total relaxation. The brightness and dimensions, which are well above standard, allow the guest to experience the private space of the room in the greatest possible comfort.
The Myosotis restaurant proposes a refined reinterpretation of the gastronomy of Salento through culinary artistry that maintains the authenticity of the flavours intact. It exalts the tradition of local products in the dishes, which are matched to a sophisticated wine list prepared by an expert sommelier. The banquet room, a setting that radiates style, is perfect for hosting gala events, candlelit suppers, cocktails, working lunches, coffee breaks and buffets for 450 people. The Hotel President also boasts a long tradition of organizing wedding feasts and ceremonies of every kind.
The Hotel President, situated in the heart of the city’s business district and near the Old Town, is a complex designed to offer its patrons urbane and meticulous service, perfect both for businessmen and for those wishing to experience a few days’ holiday in the city of Baroque. The classical furnishings, enriched with works of modern art, give the hotel a stately bearing that unites elegance and tradition, comfort and efficiency of services. All the surroundings are beautifully appointed: a fine hall with generous windows full of natural light, the American Bar, the Myosotis restaurant, and the business and congress centre.
