3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

The hotel was very clean and well situated for me as I was only on business at the airport, however, I have to agree with previous commenters, it was like something out of the 80's. It was very clean, and the staff were friendly enough. The breakfast was very nice and had a wide selection of continental items. On the downside, they have no free wifi and the cost is €8/ day...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

We stayed for a night in October, choosing this hotel due to an early flight next morning. The hotel was fine. Three things we did not like - parking lot was dirty. This gives an impression like the hotel is closed. The second thing was an A/C which apart strong noise did not cool down at all, and the third thing was the towels, which were from thin cotton and did not suck any water. Apart from that, the room was clean and well designed in 80's. Breakfast was very good with variety of warm and cold food. We would come back.

This is an older hotel, i kept thinking it would have been great in the 80's.
it's a good location, close supermarkets and the motorway.
I didn't see where we were staying as a friend booked it for us.
We arrived just after 2pm and were greeted by a lovely gentleman. (not that i really understood what he was saying as i don't speak much italian) but was polite and happy.
We had a twin room. It's very basic, exactly what i would expect for a 3 star hotel. nice and clean, very simple. I was a bit surprised there was no mini fridge or even an iron for your clothes (but then again i am use to the ones that we have in Australia).
I was only in Cagliary for one night as i'd travelled down for the weekend from Arzchena.
I was happy. 56Euros is not expensive for a hotel. To ciprian181 who left a review before me. If you want to be treated like a king then pay the money and go to a 5 star hotel where you receive that service.
Great Stay & Great Value.

Only one night in this hotel and for sure i will not come back or suggest to chose this hotel . First of all very bad attitude from the receptionist when he saw the passport , he told us that ck-in is after 14,and the time was around 13. Then when we want to leave the luggage he just show us the place in the reception without any help and he did not even move from his desk. The other receptionist that we found in the evening was very nice, he was also on duty in the morning of our check-out, but it was too late to change my opinion.Rooms are very old , the wall paper is falling from the wall, old carpets, the rooms are smelling.Far away from city center,but if you have a car is ok.

We should only have an overnight stay before an early morning flight. From the outside the hotel looks dismal, but the reception area and the dining room was very good.

Clean, large rooms (which should have been renovated), but the AC worked poorly in the rooms and it smelled of stale smoke in the hallway.
There was free parking and a decent breakfast. Friendly staff who spoke good English.
But still there was great value for one night

If you're flying into or flying out of Cagliari, then the Idea hotel is perfect. Located reasonably near to the airport, the Idea hotel is excellent value and a good starting point for your holiday in Sardinia. Staff were helpful and polite and although from the outside, the hotel location detracts from it's appearance don't be despondent, with excellent parking facilities, inside it's clean and comfortable. My only criticism of the hotel is that the rooms look a bit "tired" and need a re-vamp. Great value and well-recommended as a stop-over!

From outside looks like an abandom place, the terrible gas station next door, doesnt help plus the front garden need a bit work. But the hotel is very clean. We went with our 2 kids, 2 and 4 years old, and the room was big enought for all of us. The staff is very friendly. Parking is free. Breakfast was good. Was a very good choice for a non expensive hotel. The location near the airport was perfect for us, we only stayed over night on our way to the north.
