Hotel Piccada
Ranked #9 of 17 Hotels in Palau
Reviewed 7 October 2008

Location was excellent, a short walk from the port, bus station and ferrys.

Signora Eligia Cudoni and her husband, Paolo were very nice to us, making sure all our needs were met. On a rainy morning Paolo took us on a little tour of the area until the rain stopped. When we couldn't arrange a tour of the Coast of Smeralda, Eligia arranged for Mauizio, the young man behind the desk to take us on a private tour. He was very passionate and knowledgeable about the area. The breakfast was certainly adequate and the rooms clean. I would recommend Hotel Piccada as a very good place to stay in Palau, Sardegna

Reviewed 26 September 2008

We arrived in Palau last week and was provided a list of 8 hotels, 6 of which were 3 star by the local tourist board. We decided to call them all and to find the best deal, the first three did not answer (it was 8 pm at night and there receptions were closed) so when the Picadda did we took the room. Turned out to be the best located of all the three star hotels in the small town - only one block from the main part of town. The others were all 2 or 3 blocks out. The hotel was also at least 20 Euro cheaper than the others in the town for an equivalent double room.

We had been travelling around Sardinia by car and of all the places we stayed this was the best. The staff were really friendly, speaking very good english and from what I could tell German and French as well. The breakfast was also the best we had in Italy - with not only the standard pastries, and excellent coffee, but cheese & cold meats, cereal, fruit and yoghurt - a rare find in 3 star hotels in Italy.

They have wireless internet access and the staff were very helpful with local activities and information. We were able to park our car outside the hotel and the room had a mini-bar fridge, a good shower/bathroom.

The only downside was the double bed. It had a ridge in the middle that made sleeping a bit tricky. The choice of pillows and extra blankets (that had been lacking in the other hotels we stayed in) made up for this and as long as you didn't want to roll over to the other side of the bed, it was quiet comfortable.

All in all, a good hotel and I will definitely go back there when we return.

I stayed 2 nights in the Hotel Piccada at the beginning of August 2008. The hotel is fine for a 3 star hotel but I found it very expensive at £110 a night, which I would have expected a 4 star hotel for.
I would stay here again if I could get a much reduced rate, approx. £60 per night.

Room:
Decent size, very clean. We did not have a room with a balcony, but did have a sea view and since we did not spend much time in the room it was fine. Small TV with only Italian channels. Small fridge. No alarm clock. No safe, but you can request an individual safety deposit box which they keep behind reception to which you hold the key.

Bathroom:
Reasonable size with bidet. Clean. Very small shower but worked well with constant hot water.

Location:
About 3-5 min walk to harbour, down the hill. 7-10 min walk to where the coach drops you from Olbia Airport. If you have lots of bags this hill is quite steep but manageable.
5 min walk to main restaurants just off the harbour and 7-9 min walk to main street with shops.
So very well located and gives an excellent view from higher rooms of the harbour.

Additional:
It is a family run place with what I would call average service. They did not seem to go out of your way to help but reception is manned 24hours.
We asked for one additional towl one day and were told point blank all guests get 2 towels a day and that is the limit.
Breakfast is again of 3 star standard and completely self-service. Only continental so no hot items.

My husband and I stayed at hotel Piccada for our honeymoon- one week at the end of July. It is a wonderful hotel considering the reasonable price and the excellent location. It is located at the center of Palau, a small-ish town that has everything you need- restaurants, night-life, tourism, good food, a port, beaches... The hotel is family-run and the rooms have air-conditioning. Perhaps the only small downside is the breakfasts which were self-service.

Stayed: July 2008
