Amazing little hotel! Breakfast was served at cafe Roma which is a classic place and amazing for people watching. Very nice couple who own the place and always ready to help!

Lovely B&B, tastefully decorated, ideal location right in the middle of the historical centre of Cagliari, opposite the port and near the shops. The owners are very welcoming and friendly. Reasonable prices. We highly recommend it and would happily go back there. Rita, Patrizia & Antoinette

This is probably one of the best picks in Cagliari. Conventiently located in the centre, yet off the main noisy streets, La Ghirlanda is an oasis of peace in Sardinia’s lively capital. The hosts are very welcoming and only too happy to offer tips and advice on Cagliari and surroundings. As for the rooms, spacious and well decorated are two adjectives that come to mind naturally. I would even add somehow classy, and prepared with delicate care. After one day driving across the island, la Ghirlanda was just the perfect haven and touch of Sardinian hospitality we needed. Price is more than decent and includes breakfast at a nearby café, with "pasta" (croissants or similar), "spremuta" orange juice and a cappuccino. What better way to start your day ?

A few steps away from the port, bus (to airport, notably) and train station, in a very nice old building. Pleasant reception, the owners are a "mature" (don't you love PC-lingo?) couple, he speaks some english, she good French. Rooms are clean, Bath room good (I liked the rolled towels, nice touch), very good value for the money (and location), perhaps a tiny bit cramped, but then who wants to stay inside in Cagliari?

This is not a Bed & Breakfast., as the breakfast could not be served. The room we were in was very clean. The mattresses could be better. So far so good.

The bathroom was part of the room, just a wall separating it from the beds. It was all very small, the shower was so small we had difficulty to move there. The wc made a hell of a noise when flushing.

Inside the room was a nice air conditioning, but the elder lady was not willing to turn it on. So we had to open the windows to let some fresh(!) air in during the night. That meant the street noises did enter our room too and we could not sleep because of it.

Yes indeed a very noisy place that would not let you sleep. A very annoying elder lady that poked her nose in our business, that even didn’t speak one word of english. That refused to turn on the air conditioning. No breakfast at all.

If you look for a Bed with Breakfast and you like to get some sleep at night, you should not choose this place.

We stayed here for 3 nights over the Easter break & had a very relaxing stay. The B&B is in a great location, very comfortable beds & the owners are incredibly nice & helpful. We decided to stay an extra 2 nights in Cagliari (we were going to stay in Pula) but they didn't have any rooms left, so they called around for us & found somewhere for us to stay. Not many people will do that for you!

If we come back to Cagliari, we'd definitely stay here again, and highly recommend it to anyone thinking of staying in Cagliari.

we stayed one night at this b&b which is located in the marina of cagliari. the airport bus leaves 300 meters away and the location is just great to explore the city by foot.

the owners welcomed us very friendlich and our room was perfectly tidy and very comfortable. the bed was just perfect and the room was decorated with lovely details.

the breakfast wasnt served within the b&b but at a cafe around the corner, which served good pastry in an authentic and busy atmosphere. all together la ghirlanda lives up to its good reviews on ta, which was the reason we decided to stay here.
