It's clean, everything works, but there's not much else here that deserves praise. We were treated with a lack of enthusiasm bordering on indifference, quite unlike our other experiences with the Sardinians. Given the small room, the cramped breakfast space, the mediocre breakfast, and the lack of WIFI, this place is also somewhat overpriced.

Stayed here one night on a business trip, the location is excellent. I was a bit worried by the appearance of the place at first; to reach the guest-house you have to go through a little archway and go through a courtyard surrounded by parking garages, which did not seem too cosy or welcoming in appearance. BUT, once past the... More

Pretty much in the centre of town, within walking distance of the bus station. It is located off the street down an alleyway. Very clean and furnished in a pleasant simple sardinian style. Air conditioning - useful as the room was quite warm and stuffy, small shower room, but fine. We stayed a week and got a bit bored of... More

The Giardino Segreto is not an hotel but an unusual guest house, with four rooms opening off a small kitchen/dining room where a (good, home-made) breakfast is served. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable (though hot, needing the air-conditioning) with a good bathroom. It is centrally and ideally located, tucked away in a courtyard below... More

Excellent location in the attractive and characterful quarter of Stampace, with easy access to the historic centre and the bus and railway stations (important for us, as we were without a car). The accommodation was also excellent - clean, quiet and welcoming. Breakfast was delicious, with homemade conserves on offer. Our host was very friendly and helpful, and we appreciated... More

This wonderful B&B is a true find in Cagliari. It is well-located and perfectly appointed. It retains the character of historic Sardinia yet with all of the modern conveniences of a new hotel. It is quaint and friendly and lovely. In fact, we stayed here upon our arrival and then returned at the end of our 7-day trip to stay... More

We were at Il Giardino for six days, the weather was cold and rainy! However, we were saved by Silvia and Maurizio's restaurant recommendations. Our room was very quiet, even with the breakfast lounge outside our room, there were two doors so we really didn't hear a thing. Breakfast was a treat with bread hot from the oven, yoghurt with...

This B&B is hidden away on a quiet street, but only 5 min walk to the main streets lined with cafes and restaurents, and only 5 min walk to the amphitheatre. The rooms are beautiful, luxurious, quiet, and spacious. Breakfast is lovely with freshly baked cake and bread, and home made jams.
