“Spectacular renovation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This hotel is quite one of a kind among the recent restored hotel.
What is really impressive is the quality of the interior furnishing and decorations, specially in the superior rooms.
We had natural marble everywhere in the bathroom, we had solid and well done furnitures, and a comfortable bed.
Very well insulated room (good double glazing unit), a sufficiently furnished minibar, tea/coffe machine, tv, and everything was in good order.
The hall is very nice, and there is also a small interesting library, and newspapers.
The hotel was renovated recently and we were amazed by the quality of the renovation, which I guess was very expensive.
Coming to the service, we can only judge the breakfast, as we had there no lunch or dinner: wide choice, good presentation, prompt waiters.
Definitely we were happy about it, and we would recommend it.
The only point, the internet connection is not free, and in spite the price requested was a small one, I would expect in such hotel to have it included in the rate.

Room Tip: I suggest the superior rooms, in spite they have no direct view of the beach

I was due to travel to Alghero in July but had to cancel The hotel management were very kind to accommodate me for a weekend in october and for that I am very grateful.
This must be a wonderful hotel during the summer but while we were there the weather was bad and the hotel is not geared for that. The restaurant offered a full dinner only so we couldn't have a snack all during the day , the bar is on the terrace so no cosy drink area. The prices were prohibitive so really we were forced into town despite the storm and torrential rain.
Our room was beautiful and could not be faulted. Breakfast was good ,staff polite and friendly and happy to look after us.
We enjoyed our stay and did not let the weather hinder us. Alghero is lovely and we had great meals at reasonable prices.
I would love to return to Carlos V in the Summer and perhaps someday I will.

Reception area and ground floor were transported from a 3 star tourist hotel. Everything above was a good 4 star, the spacious rooms / beds/ furniushings and bathrooms/ dining rooms was excellent. However no tea/coffee making in room. A nice place to be based for a few days whilst exploring the surrounding area and local town.

Stayed here on business and fortunately had an excellent company rate for the rooms, as this five-star hotel definitely has five-star prices. But this hotel is high quality - rooms were spacious, nice large bed, clean and modern fittings and bathroom. Unfortunately there was an additional charge for tea/coffee in the room and no wi-fi provided. The hotel has lots of facilities and a large swimming pool, although I didn't get to try these. The hotel is just a 10 minute stroll to the centre of Alghero, so well positioned and it has nice views out to sea.

I would recommend this hotel, if the price is right.

The staff speak fluent English. The breakfast and buffet dinner were great. The hotel is located right on the water and is about a 10-minute walk from the city center. The room was well furnished. (A suggestion to the hotel management: consider placing the plethora of drink and snack options in a minibar out of sight; fee-based Internet access with a complicated setup
should be eliminated.)

Walking into the Carlos V hotel, you will be greeted with a reception designed in the 80's - which is very strange for a hotel re-opened in 2007....

The hotel staff are generally pretty good, and were relatively accommodating to our early arrival, getting us into our room a couple of hours before schedule. The "maitre de" was a smug sort of chap. I'm not sure why, or what he thought it would achieve, but he practically laughed when we ordered three courses each... excuse me for paying your wage son. The barman on the other hand was delightfully helpful. Finally, the receptionist was useless when our pay-per-view film didn't work, simply forgetting about our plight when her shift changed. The maintenance man was friendly, but utterly clueless, and we still have no idea what happens to poor Ben Stiller in Tower Heist.

Attempts to download the same on iTunes proved fruitless - there is no Internet in the rooms. Well, unless you count a Cat-5 cable as internet - which of course will not work with an iPhone, iPad, iMac or anything else with an "i" in it. "The internet doesn't work so well in the rooms", so we are told.

The food is tasty, but comes at a price. Avoid the gnocchi and the raw prawns - both are undercooked (which you might expect I suppose for the prawns), and neither taste that great. Other items were delicious, and all can be washed away (with your sorrows) with reasonably priced local Brut Torbatto.

Mattress's optional. The floor may be a more comfortable option. Drinking heavily is better still. If chosen, they will of course come as a pair of singles. No bath. The shower is spacious - but no bath. Really? REALLY? Fine for a two star - I'd expect more from a five star hotel....

Room Tip: Arrive early to get a parking space - at peak times you may struggle to park.

Carlos V in Alghero is a beautiful five star resort overlooking the ocean, located less than 1/2 km. away from the city center. It's right across the street from the beautiful "Villa Las Tronas". They have everything that you expect from a five star resort. Their friendly staff makes everything easy for the guests. The rooms are very large and comfortable. Their beautiful, modern marble bathrooms have jetted tubs, along with seperate showers equipped with rain showers. My husband and I had to agree that they had the best cappucino we've ever had! Their breakfast offered a wide variety of organic honey, and organic preserves. The omelette station was one of our favorites!
