Hotel Italia
Ranked #9 of 33 Hotels in Cagliari
Reviewed 15 March 2013

Didn't prebook a hotel on recent visit, so chose one closest to where we parked on Via Roma. The Italia. A great location, and on a side street so no traffic noise, but parking OK on or near Via Roma - you have to feed a meter but can do that as often as you have to (there don't seem to be any restrictions limiting your stay) Lots of restaurants within yards. Friendly receptionists - male and female - who spoke good English. Nice good sized room on first night, large comfy double bed, though pillows a bit lumpy. Good breakfast..only downside is that the second floor rooms all seem to be being refurb'd at the moment so building noise started about 8.30. We then toured around Sardinia a bit (note almost everywhere out of city closed at this time of year, so allow time to find places if you havn't prebooked), and on return to Cagliari had no hesitation in coming back to The Italia for our last 2 nights. An even better room on top floor this time with sun in the morning and a view over old town - also more distant from the building works so quite quiet. Very happy with the place.

Room Tip: Try for the top floor. East facing have a good view over a quieter side street.

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. I found it quite expensive (82 euros) for the room that we got (a twin room with not much light). We were not able to secure a double room. Internet is not available in the rooms (only in the public areas), which can be a bit annoying if you need it. There were some difficulties in terms of communication with the receptionists as they didn't seem to speak well English but we sort of managed with my Spanish. The rooms do not have a safe and when we left the laptops in the reception so that they would put it in the safe, we were told that they did not fit. The breakfast and the location are the best part! One is quite central in the middle of a street full of restaurants and breakfast (despite limited) it is of very good quality. In sum, location is great, rooms are below average, these are old style (but clean), breakfast is good but definately too expensive for the rooms they offer.

Room Tip: Do not take a room that is by the street but make sure the alternative room they offer you has enoug...

Spent a night at the Hotel Italia with family and bearing in mind the price and the lack of any decent similar priced alternatives, this hotel is OK. My parents stay here a fair bit and the good points are that it is clean, the service is very good and the location, bang in the centre of Cagliari is hard to beat.

On the flip side the decor of our room was very 70s and felt bizarrely retro. Our room was small but there are quite a variety in room sizes and my parents always go for rooms at the back of the hotel as they say thet are bigger. The breakfast was very basic but all in all this hotel was Ok for what we paid and the fact we were our most of the day.

Room Tip: Go for rooms at the rear of the hotel as they tend to be bigger.

Stayed in this hotel before flying back to England. Very good value for money and the staff very friendly. Rooms clean, air conditioning very welcome and overall a very pleasant stay. Ideally situated for wandering around this beautiful city.

Room Tip: Request a room at the back of the hotel as rooms at the front overlook the road which is full of res...

Hotel is good for what you pay, and staff is friendly. I think rooms have been renovated last time in the 80s but everything is clean and comfortable. Breakfast is Italian, not bad. Free Internet. Location is great and you have good parking possibilities. I would come back if I have to go to Cagliari again.

The hotel is ideally located for all the attractions around Cagliari. The bus & train station being only 10mins walk. The hotel is very clean and basic, the breakfast were nothing special but adequate. Staff very polite but very limited in speaking english, which is part of the holiday experience. There are plenty of restaurants in the nearby area, so no shortage of places to go. As we were a group of 12 adults but found plenty of places to eat with not much bother.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front can be a bit noisey on a Sat night.
