“A very friendly place to stay.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2010

I walked over snow-covered mountains to reach Aritzo and arrived just as it was getting dark. Thank goodness the Hotel La Capannina was open, because every other hotel and B&B in the village was closed. I speak little Italian, and the staff speak little English, but the welcome I got really made me feel at home. In fact, the first thing said to me by the woman who booked me in was "I saw you yesterday in Meana Sardo." Considering that I was only in that village for 20 minutes, I was surprised I'd been spotted at all! Excellent rooms, but at that time of year very few people staying in the hotel, though it seemed to be busy with local people using the bar and games facilities. It snowed both nights I was there, so that the whole area was buried, but the roads were kept open. No problem with the heating and hot water, which was most welcome, because it really was bitterly cold outside. The chalet style of the hotel really made it look great in the snow, like it was part of an Alpine ski resort, instead of being in sunny Sardinia!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2009

The hotel is situated just off the road entering Aritzo from the South. Its about a 10 minute walk into the town. When we visited in September, to say the Hotel (and town) were quiet would be an understatement--we were the only visitors!

The hotel has two buildings with smallish, but clean and bright rooms. We were able to choose our room, being the only guests, and selected a 1st floor room with a balcony and a nice view of the valley and town.

The hotel is rustic in style complete with stuffed wild boar in the dining room. The owners were friendly but spoke little English.

A word of warning --Aritzo is a nice little town but VERY quiet. When we visited, we could only find one restaurant/pizzeria that was open. The hotel offered to provide an evening meal but we didnt want to sit alone in the dining room so opted to take our chance in town, and the pizzeria was fine.

We were on a walking trip and enjoyed our time at Hotel Capannina and Artizo. If you're after jumping nightlife though, it may be best to give it a miss!

This small hotel has been run by the current couple for about 3 years, and they seem to have so far concentrated on refurbishments to the bedrooms which are in a separate building to the main house.
From the main road the appearance of the hotel is shabby and unattractive and needs a simple tidy up. However we booked in advance for an overnight stop and the welcome was good.
The rooms are well equipped, updated and spotlessly clean, with fabulour views from the balcony across the valley. An evening dinner was included, but there was no choice. However the anti-pasti was excellent, the ravioli was the best we have ever tasted, followed by escalope, and locally grown cherries. There was a carafe of red wine included and more was offered. Breakfast was also good.
The Italian owners were very welcoming, and spoke a little English and French. Senora did the cooking and Senore did the serving.
It was a convenient stop on our way back to Cagliari, through stunning mountain scenery and very quiet roads. Aritzo is very small and nothing to hold you there, apart from being wonderful walking country. A good choice for an overnight stop.
