Carlos V Hotel
Ranked #9 of 49 Hotels in Alghero
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 August 2014

The hotel is situated at Alghero, west sardinien cost. Hotel is on the sea front but without acces to the sea (no beach, rocky coast), ten minutes walk from centre, own parking place. Nevertheless the hotel has a large pool. The town Alghero is an old port town with a very interesting historical centre, many restaurants with sea view and marvellous sunsets. If you combine it with a good meals and a glass of wine...nothing better!

Room Tip: Ask for sea view room.

Hello,

I spent 10 full days in this hotel and I must say, I am usually a difficult customer. If I am not happy you will know about it and it usually does not take me 3 days to find out if problems will occur. Here - 10 days and not one problem!! Staff was great, breakfast was good, we had a large terrace with view on the sea (not direct view - but because of that it was extremely quiet, which we enjoyed). We loved the bartender Andrea!! Made us feel at home. Good Swimming pool.
Beach is difficult to access, you can either walk 10-15minutes to a creek or longer to the main beach. We had a car, so it was not a problem. The Gym could have been better. I have read many reviews on this hotel before going and I understand when people say that it is not a real 5 star hotel like the Hilton. But somehow it was better. Yes - you don t have a Voiturier - or anyone running to help you out with your luggage, but you can ask and you get it. BUT it is far cheaper!! all the softs and bottles of water in the room are free. Alcohol at the swimming pool is around 5EUR for a Martini and 4EUR for an amazing glass of wine!! We had plenty of those at that price. Try that at the Hilton, you will be ruined at the end of the trip. WIFI was free and worked well in the room and swimming pool.

At very short notice I booked a week away and this hotel was suggested to me.

I was delighted to get not only a bottle of champagne upon arrival - we were belatedly celebrating our wedding anniversary - but also a room upgrade.

Our room was spacious and spotless with a lovely big balcony overlooking the sea front. The traffic did not bother us as there are very heavy black out curtains. Breakfast was very good with a generous choice for all. Service could be a bit hit and miss though. We only had lunch at the hotel twice, once a roll at the bar and 2nd time lunch in the hotel and both were superb and good value.

The pool is lovely although we did spend most of our time out and about. Do mind your poor cards, you will be, fairly in my opinion, charged for the cost of a towel if you lose it. There is no need to bring a beach towel with you as you may leave the hotel with your pool towel.

Very quiet at night, over all we really enjoyed our week here, in our opinion a week is probably long enough in Alghero, I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this hotel.

One odd factor - in the room you get water and soft drinks free but if you wish to have a kettle with tea and coffee it will costs €10 for the week

Room Tip: I would advise to get a sun facing room, preferably one of the ones in the front of the hotel

We found the hotel, staff and everyone we meet as very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and comfortable and the breakfast very sufficient. The bar prices were very competitive and there was always a bowl of salted nuts on offer. The whole presentation of the hotel was excellent, would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet as the hotel is situated in a quiet part of town

The view, breakfast and swimming pool were to die for. Just wish they had some hot sauce. A/C was a little low but when asked, they turned it up a fan would have been nice. No ironing board or iron, but quite sure if we would have asked for one they would have given it to us. The bartender was very generous with snacks and drinks and very polite. The t.v. screen was about the size of a laptop screen and we lost the picture, but it was repaired the next morning. There was no bathtub for my wife. The bed was very firm. Very scenic with lots of outdoor shopping.

Room Tip: Don't choose a room by the elevator, to much people movement.

We came to this hotel to switch off from working.
The room was confortable and well equipped. Hanging fully opaque!
Reception is multi-langage, and efficient.
The swimming-pool, deckchair in quantity for everyone.
Real equipped fitness room.
10' walk to the historic center and the main area with the sea view restaurant.
15' to the harbor.

Room Tip: The sea view room is just amazing. King size bed is a proper very big bed ! A good tip is to rent...

I cannot understand the review by Xose M. We found the staff very friendly and attentive. Nothing was too much trouble even down to bringing up four sachets of milk in a delivery bag!
The hotel deserves its five stars. The people in the town also very friendly and the food very good. I would say the restaurants on the waterfront not as friendly as the in town ones. They obviously wanted you in and out quickly. We found a great place to eat - BORGO ANTICO la Marina situated Via Zaccania. Very friendly and helpful. The paella was wonderful as was the prawn cocktail (nothing to resemble a British one). All in all a great holiday and would recommend. Jan Miller

Room Tip: the garden view rooms are good
