Reviewed 7 October 2013

I was recommended this place by a Sardinian friend. It's more an apartment than a guest house. I had the whole place to myself for €30 per night! It's run by a very friendly family and their son speaks good English. A 10 minute walk to centro historico but if you have a car it's perfect. Very nice bakery only 2 minutes away for breakfast and supermarket also close by.

We - a Danish senior couple - stayed here for 2 nights late August 2013.
It was a little har to find. However, it matched the photos completely and we were very pleased.
We had a large apartment, with a combined kitchen and livingroom with access to balcony. A large bathroom with a laundrymachine and a beautiful and spacious bedroom.
Notice: You cannot use the kitchen for cooking unless you rent the partment as an apartment. This, we were told upon arrival.
We found this place very good and internet in the apartment was very good.
A little ways to the beach, but it is possible to walk. Good supermarket nearby.
We can recommend this place to everyone - unless you have problems with stairs as the elevator is not in function yet.
The entire building looks very new and the interior the same way.

This was an excellent stay. We didn't expect to find out that this is a fabulous place to stay, but it was! In a few words:
1). The apartments we have stayed in are situated on the 3rd floor. The living area is huge (45 sq.m. approx.) and is newly fully equipped. Also there is a balcony. Everything was clean & nice, a cozy place to live in.
2). The owner was very friendly and helpful, also he speaks English well.
3). Great wi-fi inside the apartments.
4). Best value for money in Alghero in our opinion.
The only little con is that it's not so close to the beach, but that was not a real problem for us. It is in ~15 minutes from the beach by feet.

Lots of space and a bright fresh mini-apartment at Il Cigno, excellent. Less than 10 mins walk to beach (Lido area) and close to buses, market, bars, in a quiet residential street. Stefano was very welcoming too. Particularly good if you want to go to the beach or travel around by bus, or have a car. I very much enjoyed my stay at Il Cigno - recommended.

I began to look for hotels based off of star ratings. B&B Il Cigno catagorized as "Fabulous" under another another travelers site, so I took the time to read all of the reviews. I made the reservation, and immediately was greeted by Stefano to ask if there was any special accomodations we needed. The only thing I requested, is that he help arrange for a taxi to come and get us. As a courtesy for guests, the Il Cigno offers a service for only 15 Euro per way (for 1-3 people) from the airport (we were 3 people, so we paid 30 Euro ttl), which can be arranged with advanced notification/based upon availibility.

We were greeted with a smile and taken to our unit. The unit was simply amazing! We had MUCH more space than we anticipated, with 2 bedrooms (with 2 beds each), living room/kitchen and dining area, washer, washing area with sink (perfect to clean swimsuits, and beach items),stove and refridgerator. There was plenty of natural light (which could be darkened simply by closing the shades). This made it fesible to cook, should we chose that as an option. It is very close the the beach, restaurants and supermarket.

Stefano Alfonso took us to a vineyard that we were interested in...score! He also showed us the prettiest beaches and ensured we arrived. Biking is popular in that area, you can get almost everywhere in the beautiful weather on the roads, Stefano made a great recommendation on where to get bikes for the best deal-which was greatly appreciated. He also allowed us to bring the bikes into our apartment area, which had ample space, enough to store 4 bikes without any interference of the space within our living area (right outside the door, yet secure within the complex).

We requested our breaskfast every morning at 9 am, which was a typical Itallian breakfast (cold and sweet items), consisting of fluffy delicious capuccinos, freshly squeezed orange juice, crossaints and toast (jams and Nutella) and cookies. This held us down quite nicely until lunch time.

There was FREE wifi as well. There is parkign on the street, should you chose to rent a car. It's well off the beaten path, yet close enogh within distance to get anywhere you would like to go. All of the hotels on the boardwalk/veach appeared rather grungy from the outside.

As I mentioned, Il Cigno is only 3 units, but they hope to expand into 5 by next year. They live within the same building, so any issues you encounter can be addressed on the spot. It is a family owned and run establishment, so the Alfanso family really go the extra mile to ensure that you feel taken care of, and hospitality is heart felt.

I highly recommend Il Cigno to any type or traveler/s, where you are a solo traveler, young or mature couple, older friend gatherings/girls trip, etc. It will exceed your needs if you're just looking to relax.

I will be back to visit Alghero, thanks to the Alfonso family!

Room Tip: All rooms are good, book well in advance, as there are only 3 units!
