This hotel could not have been more centrally located!! A short easy walk from the train/bus station, smack dab in the middle of all the tourist activity but despite that, quiet at night for sleeping. The staff I had to deal with were very friendly, efficient, and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable, lots of towels and in our case, a large bathroom. Our room did not have windows to the outside but instead a couple of large "frosted windows" that tilted into stair-wells. At first I thought this would make me feel closed in,and that perhaps it would be noisy but not at all, it worked out quite well for us.

The room was great. You are able to see the main street of Cagliari from your balcony.-I mean we are able to see from our room.:) The bathroom was also great. All towels and hairdryer were available in the room.
The only problem was no elevator availability in the hotel and you have to inform the reception about your arrival time. Otherwise you cannot come inside your room despite you had a reservation.
But anyway worth to stay. Advisable hotel for travelers.

Room Tip: Rooms on the street side is better to stay.

Gentile cliente,
La ringraziamo per la recensione positiva che ha scritto riguardo la nostra struttura.
La mancanza dell'ascensore, purtroppo, è dovuta all'antichità delle mura e della palazzina, datata ai primi del 1500.
L'orario d'arrivo è sempre una cortesia che noi chiediamo al cliente in quanto, non essendo un hotel, ma un affittacamere, non disponiamo di una reception 24 ore su 24.
Ovviamente, non ci permetteremo mai di lasciare il cliente fuori dall'albergo.
Se viene effettuata una prenotazione, il cliente ha il diritto di alloggiare nella nostra struttura in qualsiasi circostanza.

Saluti,
La Direzione

The rooms are nice but the lack of windows to the outside ruins everything. Air conditioning works good but not in all rooms, shower doors are broken in 201. The location is superb, losts of restaurants around, not far to the train and bus stations.

Very central location, in the middle of all the restaurants and cafés of the Marina district, at easy walking distance from train and bus stations. This causes a trade-off: either you're in a room at the front with daylight and high noise levels, or (like us) you're in a room under the stairs with no daylight (103). Some of those are directly off reception and the front door is often open, so it's still regularly noisy.
Breakfast is one great sweet roll and one wonderful coffee at the nearby Café Roma. Rest is extra.
Mind the policy of this hotel to charge you for your whole stay in advance (in our case, 4 nights). Once you've done that, it becomes very difficult to change your plans.
My advice: Make sure you don't pay anything until you've seen the room! And I for one am never going to pay up front for a number of nights again.

Room Tip: Carefully choose between relative quiet and daylight. Higher floors are probably better.

Great location, very helpful and friendly personal
There is one room, near the stairs, without windows...
Our room was on south side, there are a lot of restaurants. But with closed windows it doesn't disturb us. The air condition worked fine.

We had no particular expectations of this hotel when we arrived by boat from Sicily. We were very fortunate that it was within walking distance ( even with bags) from the port. Ok so there were a few stairs to walk up from street level to get to our room but we soon realised we were staying in the very heart of Cagliari.

Step outside the hotel and within 50 metres either side you come across about at least 15 restaurants! Within a few minutes walk and there are so many trattorias to chose from it starts to become difficult! Not only that ,one block away and one can take a fantastic walk along the beautifully marina.
The staff were very friendly and helpful and the rooms were great. I would definitely recommend the Arcobaleno especially given the very reasonable rates.

The B and B is 2 minutes away from both, the Cagliari Bus Station and the Train Depot. It is 1 minute from the port and a 15 minute long leisurely slow climb from the castello and the main shopping area. The room is clean, in fact not even the "Do not Disturb" sign could keep the staff back from cleaning one time. The personnel is extremely kind, like pretty much always in Italy and speak not much English (like usually in Italy) but can be understood well, like all the time in Italy.

Room Tip: The rooms in the front can be loud during the tourist season.
