“special hotel with harbour / marina atmo”
Reviewed 17 July 2013

special hotel. up on third floor of turn of century art deco belle epoque city villa.. 12 individually designed special rooms, with art to buy like sculptures. fantastic lounge, with many slightly weird and unusual objects ... furniture, art,.
location is unusual: via roma is loud and full of traffic. we had a room to quiet back, which only had one window and was a bit dark and dreary.would pick a room with harbour view nxt time, even if nosier. hotel manager was fantastic: very sophisticated, professional, gave us a fabulous restaurant tip which i have written about earlier. great breakfast, with luxurious buffet, even if i only ate fruit. at 180 euros place is not cheap, but an experience.

Room Tip: Room 4 is quiet but only has one window so is a bit dark.

We stayed at the Miramare based on TA reviews. It's location is perfect; facing onto the port with dozens of bars and restaurants nearby, as well as the most historic parts of Cagliari.

The room we were in was quite nice, but not amazing. The hotel is certainly quirky, but I didn't really get a sense of community or feel any sort of ambience there. They let us check in very early, which was cool, but we weren't shown around as we saw others guests be subsequently. There is a sort of living room where apparently drinks are served but we never saw anyone in there.

We didn't get breakfast with the room, so can't comment on that, but right outside the front door there is a cafe and there are many more very close by where you can get food from very early in the morning.

I'm not saying there was anything wrong with the hotel; it was fine, but given the price we paid and the rave reviews, I felt a bit disappointed.

We had the Junior Suite (room #1). The suite is very nice, kind of an old style. We had fresh fruits and biscuits waiting for us. Only thing is that the room is at the back of the hotel, has a super small balcony and no view (or a view to the wall, 3 meters away and the neighbours' windows).
The personnel was very nice, the lounge has a great view on the harbour and de Via Roma.
The hotel is very nicely located in the very city centre.
The breakfast was awesome, and fresh.
The Wifi connectivitw is kinda jumpy, but a computer is available for free to all.

The hotel is not so easy to find (the door is between a coffee shop and another store) and the lift is kind of small, but I guess this is also the charm of boutique !

Room Tip: I think rooms on the "Via Roma" side have a nicer view (harbour and sea), but are less qui...

Miramare Boutique Hotel is one of the most beautiful Town-Hotel we have ever visited. The place is full of Art-Deco furniture and very tastefully details. The rooms are perfect, clean and comfortable. Even if the place is on a very busy street just by the harbour, we found a parking near the trainstation and could leave our car 24 hours for Euro 10.-. We didn't mind the elevator being old and small. Entering the house the first time, one has to go upstairs to the third floor without elevator, which was not a problem. For the luggage we had some help immediately. We were warmly wellcomed and pampered during all our stay. We look forward to go back one day.

Room Tip: it is possibel to book a room without harborview but quiet instead.

If you want something a little different for your stay in Cagliari, then the Miramare hotel is definite something you should consider. It is . . . um . . . quirky, shall we say? Decorated in a mix of bric-a-brac, antique shop and art studio it is indeed a colourful (if a little cluttered) place. I was overly anxious that I’d knock over something delicate and break it whenever I left my room.

The rooms are comfortable and all decorated in their own “theme” – our was floral, and then some! – and the bathrooms are modern and clean, if a little cramped. The staff are helpful , particular the girl dealing with breakfasts, and having someone on the door 24 hours a day is comforting in a place that most definitely does not have that big hotel vibe.

Breakfast was frankly astonishing given the size of the breakfast area. While able to seat maybe ten people comfortably, the buffet breakfast offered a very broad variety of options (all cold) – anywhere that can offer me at least three different types of freshly baked cake for breakfast is doing something right, in my opinion!

There are some gripes though; given we were driving into Cagliari, the hotel search we did included the options for parking, and the Miramare offers free parking. Well, yes, possibly. The road outside the hotel is utterly crazy, and there are some parking spots on it, though mostly paid spots. It is possible to find free parking but to do so you have to be exceptionally lucky AND willing to cram your car into heroically tiny spots that butt up to the road in a rather alarming fashion. This really isn’t “free parking” as I would expect it. In addition to that the offered Wifi worked for about 50% of our time there. Again, not ideal.

Overall the stay was indeed a good one but the odd quirks and slight misrepresentations on what you are paying for mean it has to lose some marks somewhere.

Found this hotel from TripAdvisor and very pleased I did. Very central. Room clean and pleasant and the whole place is full of character. Welcome change from faceless chain hotels. Wonderful breakfast. Like eating in an art gallery. So I would worry about going there with young kids. Too much to break!

We just loved our 4 night stay at this hotel - stylish and comfortable. We were travelling as 2 couples and stayed in a suite and a room with a sea view. Both were lovely with individual 'eclectic' decor which was charming and different from typical hotel rooms (in a good way!). The hotel is in a great location just a five minute walk from the bus station and central for the main part of the town. We found it easily and the small lift was quirky and fun. Breakfasts were a delight both in content and presentation and it was lovely to sit with a glass of wine in the pretty main room of an evening. The only downside was the rather alarming noise of the bells at which sounded as though they were actually ringing in the suite but we learned to anticipate this, if not to sleep through it! Overall, the hotel offered a combination of service, style and comfort which was very impressive. Highly recommend it for this location.

Room Tip: The suite really had the wow factor and the sea view room,although noisier, was lovely
