We stayed one night, the room was old but clean, the hotel is some 10 minutes walk to the old town. Low season price is reasonable, during high season it would be far too expensive for what you get. Breakfast could be better, e.g. with a real Italian coffee or a real fruit salad.

Very pleased that we chose to stay at the El Balear. Excellent location in easy walking distance of the old town and port. We would recommend hiring bikes from the hotel and cycling along the promenade. We also loved the Riservato beach bar just across the road where we got a good discount on sunbeds because we were guests at... More

I would avoid this hotel! The factors in favour are a friendly and welcoming staff, a good location convenient for a stroll into Alghero city centre and it's on the seafront. BUT the rooms are in need of serious refurbishment, there is no lift even with three floors to haul heavy luggage up (so no good for anyone with a... More

I was surprised that this hotel seemed so low in the pecking order in Alghero. I stayed one night at the end of a cycling trip. Thought Alhero was lovely and was very happy with hotel. The staff were helpful and friendly.

We stayed one night at this hotel which is a very short walk away from the centre of the lovely old town of Alghero. The staff on reception were very friendly, even making us a coffee and giving us a croissant as we left early before the breakfast opened. Room was comfortable, if a little old fashioned, not been updated... More

Our last night in Sardinia was spent at this lovely small hotel. We had a great sea view and also looked over a lovely courtyard garden. We had an early flight so would have missed breakfast, but the staff very obligingly provided coffee and croissants for us in the bar area. Good location on the sea front; short stroll into... More

We stayed one night in this hotel. It is ideally located at the water front and close to the old town. The rooms are quiet and we had a very good sleep. The furniture looks quite shabby but the rooms are clean. The staff is very friendly.We liked the sea view during breakfast.
