“Perfect - but FYI”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 via mobile

Hotel Poetto is the perfect hotel for people wanting to see the sights and also have the beach on your doorstep!
However, there are some things you should know that will make your trip a whole lot easier.

1.A taxi from the airport to this hotel costs €20 (do not book transfers)
2. Finding the super market - turn right out of the hotel and onto the main road, keep walking for 5 minutes and you're there.
3. Cigarettes - standing at the front of the hotel - look left and you will see a large white building. Enter the building and turn left for a cafe which sells cigarettes and go straight on for the beach. (Ignore the restaurant sign on the right - it's never open)
3. Buses - there is a newspaper stand on the beach road, you buy a ticket for €1.20 per way.
4. Flamingo/nature reserve - jump on the QS bus right outside the hotel and jump off at the first stop once your on the motor way (sounds crazy but trust me) you will see a lake, go trough the bushes and you're there!
4. Cagliari City - this ones easy! Jump on the PN/PQ/PS bus and when you see the harbour on your left and you row of cafés on your right jump off. Head up hill for shops and downhill when you want to go home!
Head out and explore :D

I did quite a lot in a week but these are the main getting around parts :) if you need anymore info charleylambert90@gmail.com - email me!

Perfectly located, on the one hand at the head (and a 5-minute walk) of Cagliari's most beautiful beach (and near the Marina where, facing the magnificent bay, dinners and post-dinner gelati are wonderful) and on the other, in front of the bus-stop for a direct, fast and frequent service to downtown Cagliari, its sights, stores, and restaurants, Hotel Poetto offers a family like, warm and attentive service, in a small building (only the first floor has been converted into a hotel, with about 10 rooms). There is free parking and it saves the hustle of crossing the whole city if you are going on an outing. The room we had was not very large, but perfect for this type of stay, and made bigger by a lovely private patio. It was very quiet, extremely clean, bright, furnished in an elegant, modern way, with an fully equipped contemporary bathroom. Breakfast is a bit minimalist, since it is just a cup of (excellent) coffee and a (delicious) pastry from a near-by, beach-front café, but what a lovely way to start the day. I probably would not recommend it for a family, but singles or couples will love the alternative to older, and more conventional city hotels. We stayed in Spring (2014), a perfect season to visit Sardinia (where I had already been several times at different times of the year), full of blue crisp skies and flowery landscapes.

I stayed in this hotel for a 5 night stay mid October 2013.
Hotel Poetto is a charming, contemporary, boutique, family run hotel. The hotel is a stone's through away from Poetto beach, which makes it perfectly positioned to go to the beach every day and if the weather is unfavourable, stunning Cagliari is a 10 minute bus journey away with buses (PQ & PF) leaving frequently from a bus stop 1 minute away from the hotel.
The hotel has 8 ground floor rooms all with a private balcony and all rooms are well equipped and this includes a TV, safe and a fridge. The local supermarket is a 5 minute walk away. Tokens are provided for breakfast which is catered for across the road in a sea front cafe which was great. There is also a vending machine in the entrance to the hotel.
The staff at the hotel are warm, welcoming and extremely helpful. If you want an intimate, small family run hotel experience, in Poetto, this is a great place to stay.
Poetto beach in October is far less busy than in the summer months which made this trip an ideal time to go there.
All in all, a very positive experience.

The hotel is in good location close to the beach. Near the hotel is bus stop so it is easy to reach the center of Cagliari. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel room (actually there are only 5 rooms in this hotel) was clean and well furnished. In the reception you can “rent” o beach towel for 2 EUR… near the hotel (5 min walk) is a food shop.

Just back from our honeymoon in Sardinia and the sun was still shining high in the sky in October so when we checked-in direct from the airport (we arranged the transfer through the hotel) we were thrilled at how easy it was to check-in (early in the day) and how close we were to the beach- only 5 mins walk! We only made it back to the hotel that evening having soaked in the sun and the sea & having been fed & watered in the beach side restaurants and cafes- I recommend Su Mrutzu for a light lunch and a Mirto sampler ;-)
We liked the rooms in Hotel Poetto so much we booked our last night's stay at Hotel Poetto - the rooms are perfect - loved the private patios! We returned our rental car from here to Cagliari Airport in 20 mins too- con-ven-ient!!

Room Tip: All rooms are on the Ground Floor and come with private patios so don't think there is too much...

Nice new clean and quiet hotel, super nice and helpful staff! They even offered us a room with a king sized bed when one was available which we took instantly (for lack of availability my husband and I had booked a room with two single beds). The hotel is really small and there's a family like ambience. There's really nothing to complain about. We've spent a week there to enjoy the sun, the sea, the italian food and do some windsurfing. Everything is right beside the hotel. To reach the city center (about 15 minutes away) you can either take a cab or the bus (there's a bus stop right at the door step the hotel).

We stayed at Hotel Poetto in April 2013 and although it was not at the height of tourist season it was still a great place to stay. It is right by the beach, and only a short bus ride into Cagliari. The highlight of our stay was Mario who was extremely helpful whenever we needed anything.
We got free wine when we arrived and then another one a couple of days later. He gave us free sun cream and was generally keen to help with whatever we needed!
A really nice place to stay and we would guess it is even better at the height of summer when there would be more bars and restaurants open.
