Imagine staying in a room glowing with warm ochres and reds on the walls and tall French doors that open onto a balcony overlooking a street vibrating with life. Gauzy curtains gently blowing in and out are oddly soothing to watch. This is the Bed & Breakfast " Il Girasole" located in a l7th century building in Cagliari, the capitol... More

We stayed in the Blue Sky Room - very comfortable, spacious and clean. The whole flat has its own a little bit african style. Luca, the host, is outgoing person, he is the source of useful information for the tourists who would like to feel Sardinia. What is more Luca serves delicious italian breakfast on a terrace - everything is... More

My wallet & VISA were stolen on the Rome metro. My bank agreed to send a replacement VISA to Il Girasole in Cagliari where I would be staying for 5 days. It was the day before I had to leave Cagliari and no VISA. Luca took charge, networked with UPS (my Italian never would have survived the technical language needed... More

Il Girasole was a great introduction to Sardinia. Luca was very welcoming and hospitable and as I was travelling alone that made a big difference to me. He gave lots of local information and practical tips and picked me up from the airport (with three other guests) when my plane was late. The room was large, had a large comfortable... More

My wife and I had originally planned on staying at the Il Girasole for two nights. But when we arrived and saw the room and that fact that the a/c did not work and the overall feel of the place, we decided to leave. We would have left our experience at that, since we left thinking that we had missed... More

Dear Guest, tacky email is the consequence of a tacky behaviour. So here's my experience with you. First, in your reservation, you asked for a quiet room. We have 3 rooms in total. 2 facing the street and 1 opened on a internal court. This is the quitest room we have. Obviously arriving at 13.30 in the center of a... More

Il Girasole is the place to be. Great price in a great location. You're walking distance to the Marina, restaurants, and bars. Luca is probably the nicest guy you'll meet. Very personable and accommodating. We'll never forget the experience. It was my wife's birthday and he went out of his way to surprise us with a home made cake and... More

B&B is strategically located close to the historic center of the city and to Marina, with the parking lot nearby (a bid plus!). We stayed at this B&B twice and it was a perfect budget accommodation. Nice décor, great breakfast (Luca, the owner, gives his guests a chance to taste the local delicatessens – the bread, cheese, ham, fruits, even... More

Great location! Luca was an amazing host, very knowledgable. The breakfast was locally sourced and fantastic. Cannot recommend a stay here enough. If you're visiting Sardinia, Il Girasole is the place to stay!
