The hotel is located just a few blocks from downtown, a nice simple walk to everything. Our room was very clean, nicely decorated with a lovely french doors opening up to a nice terrace/balcony as we were on the 2nd floor, surrounded by the light scent from the lemon and lime trees with abundant ripe fruit. In the morning, Joe... More

This hotel is the perfect solution to stay in Carloforte. The location, although is not "central", is so close to the smal town center that takes only few minutes walking to reach it. The owners (a whole family) are great people, they take care of everything, they are funny yet helping. The Signora bakes everyday all the cakes for breakfast... More

Our stay in the Hotel California in Carloforte was one of the highlights of our trip to Sardinia. Joe and his lovely wife were so warm and welcoming! Our room was on the 2nd floor and was a good size. We had a private balcony with a drying rack (very handy for our swimmers and beach towels!) and a bathroom... More

Joe Obino, the owner of Hotel California, deserves high praise for helpfulness and honesty. More than once, he went above and beyond basic hospitality to serve us. Transportation from Cagliari to Carloforte can be very difficult and frustrating, especially when one speaks little Italian. Joe arranged to have a good driver meet us at the Cagliari airport, so that we... More

Hotel California is a very homey guest house ( despite the name Hotel) at walking distance from the very heart of Carloforte but yet very silent, compared to many other venues which are located in the center but could be significantly noisy at night. In Hotel California great nights sleep are guaranteed! Besides, if you have your own car, it... More

We booked two nights here in Mid may 2013. The hotel was clean, had good linens, comfortable bed, in a good location. The hotel is close to town (short walk) and far enough to be very quiet at night. The owner and staff are very helpful and fastidious with neatness and cleanliness. We had a room on the second floor,... More

I think we were the only guests the day we arrived without a reservation. It took some to time to track down someone to check us in and give us a key at which point they dissapeared again not to be seen until the morning.

I booked 3 days here in September 2011 - just 35 Euros a night, on my own but a good double room with balcony and en-suite bathroom, including excellent buffet breakfast. About 800 metres from the busy waterfront but very quiet. Joe the owner was very helpful. And the old town of Carloforte on San Pietro island is the best... More

We stayed at Hotel California in early April. The hotel itself is a huge villa on a quiet street in picturesque Carloforte, close to the seafront & the main square. The rooms are large & functional. It's clean. The place had a funky smell, however, and the duvet looked like it had seen better days. The owners are friendly, but... More
