Reviewed 12 September 2013

We stayed only one night in Alghero and tried to select one hotel near the port and historical center.
The staff was great and the location was excellent.
The room was clean. However, the bathroom needs a bit of renovation.
The location could be noisy at night during weekends.
I would recommend this hotel based on my searched criteria.

Stayed for a week with some friends, had a spacious room with balcony on the 8th floor so great views. Excellent location, 5 mins to the restaurants in the old town and close to the bus stops.
The room was clean, towels were replaced every day and bed sheets every other day. The free wifi was quite good connection for Europe. Aircon worked fine.
We also used the free beach tokens provided by the hotel, although that beach you would get sewage spelling air blowing in so perhaps better to try out some other beaches.
For a continental breakfast there was quite a good choice, but those who are fans of cereal and milk you will be disappointed.
I would definitely stay here again, it's convenient, clean and staff were helpful.

Room Tip: 8th floor has a balcony so great views.

We had a great holiday in Alghero, its very nice city with many good restaurants. The hotel has perfect location. In front of the hotel is bus station, from where you can go to the beach of Stintino or Bosa city, which I recommend to see! The restaurant at the top of the hotel has beautiful perspective to marina. There we had a breakfast and it were good. Room and bathroom were clean. Service was helpful. Sometimes I had problem with internet wifi connection. And the price was little high. But also I recommend this hotel! Marek from Slovakia

Bad room and bathroom, bad view for the high price!
In my experience and opinion I cannot consider this structure a four stars hotel!
It's very nice the terrace on the top, but here we had a sit to have breakfast and no one came after 15 minutes!

When we've booked this hotel for our 7 day vacantion to Alghero city in Italy, we wanted a room with sea view. This was the most important thing for us, despite the fact that the price was pretty high for our budget. However, after a couple of days of staying there we've realised that we just made one of the best deals ever, as the hotel offered TOTALLY FREE private beach with umbrella and chairs, as well as TOTALLY FREE high-quality and fast wireless Internet (regardless the fact that the hotel advertises 2 EUR for 30 minutes of Wi-Fi - guess they were in the middle of some big changes). The room were cleaned every day and the sheets changed every two days. The food was also fantastic on the Blau restaurant! Thanks guys!

As mentioned above, we've stayed seven days at this hotel, during which we were not able to pay the reservation, because of their outdated management software. And here comes our issues with hotels' general security: because we only had cash (we had very bad experiences in the past with credit cards in Italy - our money were stolen), we were forced to carry the money with us (approximately 800 euros) everywhere we had to go. Why? Simply because the hotel management didn't want to let us pay the entire reservation from day one (or even day two or three, etc.), their rooms used old-school key system and the safe in the room was not so safe, as anyone could put it on a bag and leave the hotel like it was a client.

Don't get me wrong, the hotel was a step from being excellent, but they really need to put a new key system with magnetic cards on doors, and pin that safe into the wall (it has two holes in the back just for that). Yes, it was mentioned on the hotel's policy not to leave valuables in the room and make sure you double close the door while inside. But that's not a solution guys! Please update your entire security, as anyone can enter the hotel, lock-pick those old key locks and break into rooms.

Oh, and on the last day, when we've finally paid the reservation, the guy from the reception (with gray hair and glasses) did not even mention something about a receipt. We had to ask for one!

When we first go to the room, me and my wife noticed that the Air Conditioning was not working. We immediately reported the issue and the front desk said that they would handle it. Once we returned from dinner, still no AC. The front desk was unhelpful and pretty much told us "tough luck" I guess a $150 a night hotel room is not what it used to be. Do not stay here!

The hotel was fine, not very new but the rooms were ok. The breakfast was well not very good but the location is great, near the old town and the staff was very kind. The price you pay is not only for the hotel but for the location while there are more hotels with 5-10 minutes walking. But our visits were always fine, also for groups.
