This review should be read in conjunction with my review of the Hotel Corallo, Isola Rossa, Sardinia. The reason is our holiday to Sardinia from Sat 30 June 2007 (we got the last flight out of Liverpool airport due to the attempted bomb in Glasgow airport) was a two-centre based holiday.
We chose the Hotel Gabbiano based on reviews from Trip Advisor and from photos on Panoramio.com that identified the Hotel’s ideal position and this is its strong point. Arriving at Alghero airport at 2130 hours we did not fancy driving so took a ten minute taxi ride to the hotel. Booking in was completed within a couple of minutes and our room was found to be neat, basic but everything you could want. Oh by the way it cost us £45 for the two of us per night B & B.
The Hotel is right on the main road and a 30 second walk to the right sees you on the prom and the main beach. A further 5-10 minute walk to the left from the hotel is Alghero’s harbour and the old town walls etc. Each night there are market stalls set up along the harbour with a variety of produce. This market was still going strong at midnight for the two nights we were there and is a fascinating hub bub of all things Alghero. Just sit and watch the world go by.
Breakfast is typically Sardinian…..ham…cheese, cereal, yoghurts, bread, honey, jams etc.
To summarise the Hotel Gabbiano is basic but its main selling point is its Location, Location, Location. I would visit again.
