Rina Hotel
Ranked #20 of 49 Hotels in Alghero
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Stayed for a week in the apartment, which is located in the next building to the Rina Hotel. It was not 4 star accommodation at all. Quite disappointing, we had to go to the hotel to use a swimming pool which was rather small. Size of the room was adequate to the booking page and the kitchenette equipment was basic. Room was cleaned daily but not very thoroughly. Receptionist was very nice and helpful - thank you so much!
The big plus was a supermarket cross the road, where you could get everything you need for self catering holiday, good choice of restaurants close by and amazing ice cream place 2 minutes from the hotel.

Maria Pia beach is the best place to relax as the beach close to the hotel is dirty and the water is cluttered with seaweed.

Room Tip: Apartments are located in the building next to the hotel - 3 star accommodation

Very rude bold old man

I won't suggest this place even if it was for free .

We stayed in the annex building. Booked for 2 adults and 2 children through Booking.com and paid in full at the time of booking for a 1 bedroom apartment (30m sq). When we arrived we were put in a studio (25m sq) with a bunk bed in it so no privacy for anyone. When we checked, the manager said there had been a 'mix up' and we could move to the right room the day after. We were given a free breakfast for our trouble but had to hang around the day after till lunch to move our stuff as we weren't going to leave valuables in the safe to be moved for us. No-one mentioned the mix up at any time during check in or when they took us round to our room so if we hadn't queried it we think we would have been left in the studio all week which is a bit of a rip-off given we paid the higher price at the time of booking to make sure we got a separate bedroom.

Other than that the staff are very polite, the rooms are kept clean and the location is OK (provided you're happy to do a bit of walking) being halfway between the old town which is great and Pia Maria beach which is a bit more picturesque than the nearby town beach.
There's no wi-fi in the bedrooms and no hairdryer which was advertised. Also, we asked for a room on a higher floor but got one on the first floor so its probably a waste of time filling in the special requests section of the booking site.

Absolutely no bad words about this place. Location couldn't be better. We had balconies overlooking the ocean which were amazing. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful - Kevin, both Giovanni's, the girls at reception just to mention a few. Being on the sea front close to the bars and 10 minute walk to the centre of Alghero really added to the amazing experience.
(Wifi in the rooms and throughout the entirety of the hotel would make this the perfect hotel)

Room Tip: Balcony overlooking the sea

We stayed at Rina hotel 4 days (May, 17 to 20).
The experience wasn't the best.
The first day was very hot so when We ask for the air conditioner they said that was disconnected and can't be activated just for our room. We request a solution and they send us a fan, that wasn't the solution We needed
Later We tried the Wifi conection but it's not for free -as their web page said- you have to pay... and the common areas are the bar and lobby, so We payed for something that used for a little time.
Our room doesn't look at all like those that they promote on pictures and the pillows were awful.

The breakfast and bar service were nice.

we stayed at Rina one night only, we have traveled around Sardegna. The staff were nice and friendly, everyone spoke english. We booked studio apartments but due to problem with booking.com reservation apartment was not available so they gave us 2 separate rooms (group of 4 people). If you are travelling by bus from airport the journey lasts for approx. 15 - 20 mins and cost 1 euro from the machine iinside the airport. You can also pay on the bus, but you hv to pay 1.50. The pool area was really good.

Just returned from 6 nights in the studio apartments at Hotel Rina. If you are travelling by bus from airport the journey lasts for approx. 15 - 20 mins and cost 1 euro from the machine immediately outside the airport. You can also pay on the bus. Get off when you see the Farmacia and walk back in the direction you've just come from and go down to the left at the bike shop. You'll see the hotel about 150 yards on the left. Studio is clean and spacious and the pool area is lovely. The beach at the bottom of the road is lovely but there is a very strong smell at times therefore I would recommend walking 15 mins along the beach road, away from town to Maria Pia beach which is absolutely stunning. We used the local bus to travel in and out of town 1 euro, though it's a lovely walk also along the prom to the Marina and old town. The pace of life in Alghero is so chilled and our weather was amazing. We'll definitely go back to Alghero and will probably stay at Hotel Rina again.

Room Tip: We had a first floor studio and only had a view of apartments behind us. Ask for 3rd or 4th floor
