“Fantastic Hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2010

We moved here after a night at the Holiday Inn Cagliary which was nowhere near the city!! Francesco and Vincenzo were brilliant! So friendly and helpful that it made our stay in a foreign land comforting. It was great to see the boys take on the hospitality trade and do well at it. The welcome, the ambience, the spacious and well appointed with big fluffy towels and airy bathroom were very easy to get used to. The breakfast was homely and beautifully presented with home made cakes by the boys!! Very impressive hospitality. Hotel is very centrally located and easily reached from train station within minutes. We got a map off the internet to guide us. A street of steps can be easily managed without luggage although we carried ours. Close to the portside. Very comfortable indeed. Thank you Vincenzo & Francesco

Hard to find (use a satnav !) - tough to find free parking. Lots of stairs to climb - room at Sa dumo was fine but because we were short stay they moved us 10 minutes across town to another building with more stairs to drag your bags up. Tv didnt work at first then only 4 channels. Breakfast in the room was prepackaged croissant and coffee with no milk. Noisy night life right outside your window at this location. No hot water for shower. Would not recommned to short stay visitors if you dont get the Sa Domu Cheta building.

My girlfriend and I arrived Cagliari in the evening, and it was dark. We got a taxi and with a little bit of troubling we located Sa domu Cheta. It is, like other people has pointed, a little bit of difficult to find. We checked in and the young boy in the reception gave us excellent service.. The grandma in this B&B is just lovely.. A charming old italien lady stood at the kitchen cleaning up and preparing for the nexts morning breakfast.. She dropped everything she had in her arms and came out just to say hello to us, then we start feeling this Italian harmony.. She looked at us, saying something at Italian and in 30 secs she was starting to prepare a little meal for us.. so nice..
The next morning we got breakfast and the youngboy in the family was taking good care of us, giving us everything we wanted.. And then the lovely grandma stepped out of the kitchen with a nice cake in her hands to us... I was feeling that we were one of the family! I think this tells what this B&B stands for.. The rooms are very nice and excellent for a couple... The location is very nice, in the old part of Cagliari and you can in most cases walk to different things..

The service is great!

Things didn't start off well - I got a taxi from the airport with lots of bags - including my bicycle.

The cab dropped me outside and it took me a while to (a) check I was at the right place and (b) get someone to answer the door. Unfortunately the ab driver left one of my bags leaning against a pot-plant in the hall, so when Nonna Maria came out and found me there she shouted at me in Italian, and I didn't get checked in at this stage, and she told me to come back in an hour.

So I sat outside, put my bike together and waited for something to happen. A couple of other people turned up (I think they were guests) and as they were going in they kindly phoned the englishs-speaking guys from the hotel, who turned up a bit later and checked me in. It was all a bit stressful. The room was very small and dark at end of corridor overlooking courtyard and neighbours rooms.

The convenience of being in central Cagliari, and the relative cost was Ok. The breakfast was superb and after a couple of great breakfasts I was a lot happier. By the end of the stay, Nonna Maria Was being lovely to me, which was nicer than being shouted at, and she gave me a big bag of biscuits and cakes which lasted for the next three days of cycling.

Just stayed in Cagliari and had a fantastic time at this friendly, family run B&B. Tasteful mix of antiques and modern furniture, the rooms were cool and spotlessly clean, it was hidden in a quiet back street but 2 mins walk from the centre. Most of all, when we lost our driving license, the receptionists who speak good English manned the phones all morning to help us out. We loved it.

I chose this B&B based on the positive reviews at Tripadvisor and was slightly disappointed. The location is good as it is in the centre, but the place is difficult to find, no signposts on the way. Also, we had to wait for about 30 minutes till the owner arrived and we were shown the room. The room was rather nice, modern and clean, but has no real character and is very dark since the only window leads to the courtyard and you will not want to open it once you smell the odors coming from outside. The breakfast is good though and consists of a choice of cakes and yoghurts.

The B&B was not as bad, but I believe that you can find a better place for the price of 85EUR out of season.

This was our third stay in Cagliari, having previously stayed outside the city and drove in, then the T-Hotel (outer-inner city) and now at the Sa Domu Cheta. It's easy to find the street - the front door is less obvious, indeed almost unnoticeable. It is though, just over 5 mins walk from the Bus Station (just 2 euros from the airport - take it and save the 20 Euros a cab might cost), and there isn't much room for a hire car outside in any case.
It is modern and clean, we upgraded to a suite - a larger room with a sofa and modern TV. Great size, great bathroom. Breakfast was continental - pastries, yoghurt - no meat/eggs/cheese. But you are less than 5 mins from the very centre of town - loads of restaurants and cafe's within a 10 min walk. As well as parks, gardens and piazzas. The staff speak really good english....and the only negative was the noise on saturday night at the nearby bar over the road - no sleep til 3.30am I'm afraid - though sunday the bar was closed so we slept OK.

The best thing about the Sa Domu is the location. for 48 hour stay you can't go wrong.
