People...You will be foolish to pass on this fantastic hotel...It is a diamond buried in the rough...It is in the most perfect location.

10 metres from the beach and 200 metres from the majestic old town, with a stunning marina promenade along the way.

The staff are absolutely committed to making sure each and every guest has an absolutely excellent experience. I cannot say enough about Antonio, Guiseppie, Patrizia and finally Bamba...They were the perfect hosts in this family run hotel.

If you ever decide to stay in Alghero this is most definitely the hotel to stay in, it's not 10 out of 10 it's 11 out of 10!

Ciao Pablo & Gina

Room Tip: Any...They are all excellent

Located near the historic center, near the beach, supermarket, bus station, travel agency, Hotel Il Gabbiano is perfectly positioned in Alghero. Breakfast is good and the staff is friendly. The rooms have not refrigerator but you can use the refrigerator from the bar.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms have balcony but are noisy.

Me and my girlfriend found this hotel very very pleasent, relaxing and homely in our 1 week stay. Nothing luxury, but lovely, positively interactive and friendly staff, tidy and clean, proper buffet breakfast. Perfect location, in front of beach 10 minutes away from old Alghero, plus buses to airport and beautiful beaches and places to visit just 50-100 metros away. Lovely balcony view of Capo Caccia and Alghero Bay, too.

Room Tip: Take a balcony view room

An average hotel, with a great location, just cross the street to get access to the beach. 10 minutes walk to the restaurants in the old town which are worthy a visit during your stay in Alghero.
Friendly and service-minded staff.

Stayed here for 1 week. Rooms and hotel are very basic and disappointing. No luxury. Nothing to recommend here, buffet breakfast same boring,limited selection every day.No hot food, no imagination used in this hotel at all. Bar is not used either. Balconies tiny.
The positives are; fabulous beach view and the staff with the exception of the night porter are extremely polite and friendly but do nothing to encourage a more interesting holiday
Basic is the word to describe this hotel and would not return to it.

Room Tip: All rooms are the same-basic

Hi All
I agree with the person who wrote " it's the worst hotel ever". 1- half of the hotel is a building site, we were put in a room overlooking the building site = noise starts at 8 am.
We asked for another room, and we were refused, although there were free rooms our floor. 2) unexpected charge 10 euro per night for air-conditioning 3) at the day of departure you have to leave the room at 10am, if you are few minutes late they charge you per hour, and if you leave after 1.30 you pay for another day 4) tv in the room does not work 5) very, very unfriendly staff ( maybe except for 1 person working there). They really do not care about the clients, or about return business. Book something else.
The only good thing about this hotel is central location, but with building site on one side, and loud road on the other, good luck finding quiet room.
