“Good choice in Pula”
Reviewed 13 July 2010

Stayed at Villa Madau over a summer weekend. Location is right at the center of Pula and that can be a mixed bag. Pula is a rare example of a real small town in a Sardinian beach destination, so you will get restaurants, bars, shopping and a place to stroll as you would expect from Continental Italy, but with with the typical gorgeous beaches and crystal clear waters of Sardinia.

On the minus side parking is difficult and far away and music from the street and from the roof terrace will stop you from sleeping till 1 am, when noise stops. If that suits you Villa Madau is a very nice choice, so it was for us.

Rooms are pleasant, clean and individually designed, nice breakfast is al fresco in the courtyard.

The hotel Villa Madau is located of the main square in Pula. The hotel staff is extremely helpful and the rooms are nicely decorated.
Due to its central location it can be noisy at times, but nothing you wouldn't expect from the city center of an Italian village ;-)

This hotel is a triumph of style over substance. The location is good - in the town centre with a fabulous outdoor pizza restaurant through an archway opposite. The rooms probably looked trendy 10 years ago but now look dated. Staff on reception were unhelpful. Plain glass windows in the bathroom overlooking the public corridor!!! Noisy neighbours practicising their drumming. 40% of lights not working in the bedroom which indicates in my view a less than careful attitude on the part of the proprieters.

This is quite a good hotel in a fantastic area of sardegna. I was a little concerned that it still had a room available at the last minute in the middle of august, but its a great comfortable 3 star hotel right in the middle of Pula. The room was clean and airy with four windows and 2 (narrow) balconies looking over a beautiful piazza with a direct view onto the chiesa (and gelateria), a good bathroom and cable tv (sky italia) with several channels in english and other languages. Pula in general is a great little town which is totally asleep during the day and bustling with activity around dinner time - it is also a relatively short drive to the beautiful chia bay. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was quite good (no hot food but a good selection of pastries, fruit, yoghurt etc). My only complaint was that due to the noise from the piazza (which one night went on until dawn) it was necessary to sleep with the windows closed and the aircon on - something I hate, particularly on beautiful hot summer nights. Also, I navigated to the hotel with a gps system which didnt realise that via nora was divided in half by a piazza so spent 15 minutes on foot looking for the hotel - in fact, it is directly across from the church!

  • Liked — Location - what a great little town!
  • Disliked — Need to sleep with windows closed.
