A very nice hotel with a beautiful and modern furniture. Very warm and helpful staff. A bit far from the city centre (~30min by bus) and not so far from the beaches (~15min). The food is nice and varied, 20€/pers for a buffet where you'll have an appetizer, a soup, a first/second dish and fruit for dessert. If you want... More

We've just returned from hotel Califfo. This hotel was chosen for us as a base for the European karate seminar. First and foremost it is definitely not a 4 star hotel. It is basic and old fashioned. Our room was on the ground floor with a view of an outbuilding. We kept the curtains closed as the view was awful.... More

I was there out of the sezon therefore the place was very quiet. The best staff I have ever met, very friendly. Nicola from reception team - very helpful! 20 km from the town centre. Difficult to commute without a car.

The hotel itself is perfectly adequate, the rooms are clean and the cleaning staff did an excellent job every day. The rooms have all of the basics (apart from tea and coffee making facilities) but overall the hotel is rather shabby and run down, the lift was broken during our entire week's stay and the lamp and TV were also...

Very nice hotel, 10 min. drive to a lovely clean beach with restaurants. Nice not too big swimmingpool with all sorts of chairs. Our room had a fantastic vieuw. Badroom was great with bath (shower), toilet and bidet (not to wash your feet in!!!). Staff was fantastic, especially Leno (bar, for my campari soda and our late cappuchino and cognac!!).... More

Is cheap and confortable but is not the best hotel. It is not 4 stars, maximum 3. Rooms not so big and small and old tv. Furnitures are old. They have bus service to closest beach. Also big parking very easy to park. Not so close to Cagliary center or to beach, you need car or bus.

The price of this hotel made it attractive to me. Upon arrival I understood why it was so cheap! The area is very remote which in fairness it does say on their website. You definitely need a car here or (like us) will spend lot on taxis. It is approx €25 one way to any decent restaurants. There are none... More

Our room on the top floor was clean but was smelling like sewage, or rather rotting cadavers. It was impossible to stay there with closed windows. Our neighbors told us the same story. The wine was served in open bottles without labels at the very basic dinner. It was barely drinkable. Three out of ten bottles of white wine on... More

Beds was two singles put together which kept on coming apart, tennis court was out of order. Hotel is miles from town with an infrequent bus service. Pool is tiny. Have to also take the bus to get to the beach. Unless you have a car definitely don't go. Rest of the hotel is fine. Staff are ok.

Dear Mr Harra ? we are sorry about your complaint. Anywhere is advertised that Hotel Califfo is 12 km away from town, so it wouldn't be a surprise not find us in the center. The public busses to Cagliari town run every 20 minutes, the bust stop is just in front of the Hotel. We always suggest our guest to... More
