“Not a 4 star hotel”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

We stayed 3 nights at Mediterraneo in Septemer 2012. Room 401. This hotel may have been a 4 star hotel, but now it is definitely not, although the prices were. The most positive was the breakfast and we guessed that that was something that the business guests required. Our room was noisy because it was placed very near the elevators. So both in the evenings and early morning the noise started. The total impression was that the hotel needs renovation.

The size of the room was adequate, but worn and smelled of smoke. The TV in the room was small and had only 3 or 4 (italian) channels available. The remote did not work. No meals, except breakfast, were available. No WiFi in the room, only in the lobby.

The positive with the hotel was the view from the room over the sea and the reserved car park.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

The hotel is pretty run down in the hall and outside, but at least the room I was in had been renovated and was pleasant (you should ask for a renovated room at the counter). The wifi didnt work in my room, so I had to go to the lobby to get work done which was a pain. The area is not very nice, but it was convenient for the convention center which was a 10 min walk away.

We got a good price from the convention management, but I wouldnt pay more than 100 euros for a room in this hotel.

Take a look at their website...well, nothing is like you see there!
This place is actually closer to a Motel than a 4 stars hotel.
I can't understand why it is ranked 4 stars! Unbelievable!!!
The rooms are uncomfortable with very old furnitures.
Don't even consider to stay here...go elsewhere!
The owner should invest more money and make it a real hotel!

Don't waste your money! The 'hotel' is dirty, disgusting and smell. Old furniture. old carpet. Old everything! Staff rude and unhappy.

Room Tip: no good room available. Bad smell everywhere!

The description of the hotel online is nothing like what it really is. The hotel is very old, dingy, dirty. The room is really small. The carpets are all stained, the chairs were stained with coffee. The tub was cracked and the water was coming out yellow constantly. There is not a clock, nor coffee maker, the telephone was not working properly ( could barely hear). The staff at the front desk were not nice, nor did they give good service. Their answer to everything was "I don't know". They advertise the hotel online as a 4-star, but in reality it is only a 2-star. We would never stay here again and definitely not recommend this hotel to anyone. The only slightly positive comment I have is that the view was not bad if you were on the top floor and facing the ocean. We only stayed 1 night and checked out and stayed at another hotel for the remaining 6 days.

I let my niece make the reservation, assuming she'd think of location. She didn't. The hotel is not close to the center of things, so you are always walking back and forth, spending money on cabs or buses or hanging out somewhere just so you don't have to go back. This hotel has a seminar or business meeting every day, so the lobby is frequently full of non-hotel guests. The restaurant they listed is closed for renovation. And while there are a few decent restaurants within walking distance, it is a long way to the good ones. The staff were pleasant, but I think they are more happy with business travelers than vacationers. No pool. No outdoor spaces. The internet only works in the lobby with a 3 euro per hour charge.

If you are going to Cagliari for vacation, I would stay in the center and not in this hotel.
