“Avoid this hotel like the plague”
Reviewed 17 June 2010

I'm an experienced traveller, having stayed in many different hotels & b&bs of all kinds. This hotel was so bad that after visiting the room I decided to leave. The hotel itself is terribly dated and shabby. The decor was hideous and depressing at best. The carpets in certain areas of the hotel were scruffy and stank. There was no lighting in any of the corridors which meant you could not decipher the room numbers.

I booked the hotel via internet at the rate of 89€ breakfast incl. I do not deem this to be especially 'cheap' and expected a more modern, more pleasant hotel. The staff seemed fairly friendly but thats little consolation when you're staying in such a dump. I was so appalled by this hotel that I felt compelled to share my experience with others in the hope that they do not make the same mistake as me in booking a room there.

I was in the hotel a couple of weeks ago with my girlfriend and some friends.
Generally speaking it was a very positive experience in this hotel even if there are some elements that were not so good.

I don't know if the hotel is simple to be reached from Cagliari with bus but probably yas because some friends of mine went to Cagliari by bus in less then 1 hour.

The hotel is a four star but it has to be refurbished in some areas.
However when we arrived the receptionists were very kind and assigned us the room in few minutes.

A bad surprise was the elevator: quite small and very shabby, I hope it will be refurbished very soon!

The room was clean (even if on the moquette there were some spots) and confortable.
The bathroom was very clean, there were only a problem with the shower but they fixed it very soon.

Breakfast was good and various moreover the breakfast room was at the fourth floor and you were able to see the whole Cagliari gulf: a great experience!

The swimming pool, more or less always open, was a fantastic option when we didn't want to go to the seaside.

At the end I think that the hotel is quite good to spend some day near Cagliari.
