The Hotel President is located in Giovinazzo, a seaside resort town just 12 km from Bari, the capital city of Puglia. The town is close to the airport and surrounded by many tourist attractions. The hotel is a previous affiliate returning to Space Hotels and expanding the group's offer, which has always been aimed at meeting its clients' needs with destinations for both business and leisure travellers, wellness centres and gourmet enogastronomy.

The Hotel President Giovinazzo is a modern and welcoming four-star hotel with many strengths that attract both business and leisure travellers interested in the seaside, the city of Bari and nearby tourist attractions. The hotel's director, David Bendaou, reveals all in an interview.


Why should people choose the Hotel President for their stay in Bari? What tourist itineraries and attractions are there nearby?

The hotel's strategic position makes it perfect for all types of clientele: it is located just 100 m from the sea and only seven km from Bari's Palese Airport, which stands in the centre of the industrial and business area of the cities of Bari, Modugno and Molfetta. It is located only 12 kilometres from the centre of Bari making it a convenient starting point for visits to Bari and day trips to nearby tourist destinations such as: Trani (30 minutes), Alberobello (40 minutes), Castel del Monte (50 minutes) and Ostuni (60 minutes).


What type of clientele does the hotel have?

In the past, the hotel's clientele was primarily business people due to its proximity to the airport and the highway and to the services it offered. Now, thanks to the increase in airlines serving Bari, the hotel now has a large leisure clientele who enjoy being close to Bari and other tourist cities of Puglia.


What are the things to see in Bari?

Bari offers many historical, artistic and cultural sights to see including Svevo Castle, the Picture Gallery and the De Nittis Museum. In the late 1980s, the city underwent a major renovation making it much more attractive for tourists. The historic centre was completely renovated and many fashion houses have opened their boutiques there. The exhibition centre was enlarged and is in full use with fairs all year round. The city's Petruzzelli Theatre was rebuilt after a devastating fire and has become a star-studded showcase. Bari offers a wide variety of natural resources and interesting events to its visitors.


What type of cuisine is served in your restaurant? What is the chef's signature dish?

We are very proud of our restaurant and work hard to dispel the belief that hotel food is standardised. Our chef creates traditional dishes revisited with zero-km ingredients. The chef's signature dishes include: Rice with potatoes and mussels, to which he adds zucchini in the style of his hometown Molfetta; Paccheri with sea urchin sauce and red onions from Acquaviva. Other dishes and local products that we are proud to offer include: handmade orecchiette with veal sauce; cheeses from Andria and Gioia del Colle; salamis from Martina Franca; lampascione onions and lamb meat from Murgia; bread from Altamura; taralli from Bitonto. Our land is famous for its unique and special foods, in particular, extra virgin olive oil from Bitonto, made with high quality coratina olives.


What services does the hotel offer?

The hotel's business services include an airport shuttle bus service, 24-hour answering service, Wi-Fi internet access, simultaneous translation and computer rentals. For its leisure clientele, the hotel offers an outdoor swimming pool, a large outdoor area for jogging and special rates at nearby sports centres. Its private park is very popular with football and volleyball teams, which are often guests at the hotel. Another popular service is free access to a private beach with a large car park, just 4 km away, from mid May to mid September. Guests get a 30% discount on beach chair and umbrella rentals. The hotel offers a shuttle bus service to the beach and back.
