Hotel Soleado
Ranked #29 of 49 Hotels in Alghero
Reviewed August 20, 2012

We had a sea view room for a week-end (150 EUR per night including breakfast) during the high season.

Good points: very nice sea view from the approx. 15 square meters terrace; large and clean room; very friendly staff; beach in front of the hotel; Alghero’s medieval city center reachable within a couple of minutes walk; nice breakfast;

Less good: small swimming pool; breakfast to be taken inside restaurant; road between hotel and beach;

Overall very good;

Hotel Soleado is situated by the beach of Alghero so if you book a sea view room (with extra charge) then you will have a good view of the beach. Also there is a clean and nice swimming pool which you can relax. Breakfast is good too. However, the bathroom which I had in my room had an unpleasant smell maybe due to the bad ventilation. I was lucky to have a side sea view room but there is not much deco in the room with basic furniture. But it is clean. However, the internet is not free and they charge outrageous internet fee per 30min, per hour and per day (10 euro for 24 hrs). You can get cheaper rate at the internet cafe just 300meter down from the hotel. The hotel is just a street away from the bus stop to & from the airport. So it is convenient and the bus also takes you into the city center if you are tired to walk. It takes around 20 minutes to walk into the old town. It is an ok hotel and the room rate is pretty cheap if you book 21 days in advance. Service from the hotel reception is just ok. They didn't give much information when I asked about bike and scooter rental and didn't even try to be helpful. But they are polite and speak good English.

What took my breath away about this property wasn't the location opposite the beach. It's proximity to transport connections (airport, train stations, buses and taxis). The bathroom was spotless, Towels and bed linen clean and ironed. The aircon worked perfectly and breakfast was enough to start the day. Staff spoke English fluently and were able to give advice re the local area and how to make my onward connections to the east of the island by train. Only drawback is the rooms at the rear of the property really on have views of the surrounding hotels. However there is a great terrace on the fourth floor for great views of the bay area.

Room Tip: The rooms at the front of the property would have better sunrise/sunset views

We found this hotel on line when travelling through Sicily and Sardinia and booked it due to the reasonable price and location. We stayed a week and found it to be very well situated opposite the beach and a short but interesting walk into the old centre of town which makes it very easy to have lazy days. The pool was clean although busy with some guests leaving their towels on the sun loungers all day despite not being about. Breakfast was the typical Italian mixture of meat, cheese and cakes. Our room (326) was designed rather strangely with the bathroom taking up most the the outside wall so the bed area was quite small and dark. There are several supermarkets round the back of the hotel and there is a fridge in the room although this does need to be emptied before the cleaner arrives which is a pain. Previous comments made about the plumbing are totally accurate - toilets flushing all night can be heard as if they are your own. We didn't access WiFi because of the unrealistic tariff so can't comment on it. It's only now after returning that I see there's a roof terrace which we didn't know was there.

The open top bus tour has to be recommended for lasting 1hr 40 mins and travelling out of Alghero to the headland (Capo Caccia) which wouldn't otherwise be accessible without a car or bicycle.

Very good value for money, friendly staff, but there are 2 major issues I have with this hotel:
1. You can “hire” internet access for 30’ at 3 quid (well, that was one of the tariffs) and only from 8:00 to 22:00. I find this extremely backwards and it would somewhat prevent me from staying in that hotel again as I am a big fan of being connected
2. Some of the staff are not able to speak even Italian… or try to understand my broken Italian even if they do not want to speak English, or Spanish or Portuguese, for that matter. Staff that can communicate is vital.

Stayed here with 2 friends recently..was pleasantly surprised. Just walked in of the street and got a large quadruple room with sea view for 100euro per night...great value. Room was cleaned daily, plenty of towels, fridge (for cooling the proseco!!). Pool area is lovely...staff were very friendly and helpful. Are some roadworks going on outside but should be finished soon. Will defo stay here again.

Room Tip: Sea view is wonderful

Yes, it could do with a bit of character and it wasn't perfect but this was all-round a good option for a 4 day stay.
So the good points:
- good location and although on a main road, it's one way and not that busy.
- good connections the bus to town comes right past the front door and the bus from airport stops just round the corner. You want the stop opposite Billa supermarket
- our room on the 4th floor was clean tidy, had sea views and air con.
- clean pool area with sun beds umbrella etc and roof terrace on 4th floor that no one uses
The not so good:
- a bit of construction work going on around you (end of May 12). The promenade directly outside the hotel is being done up and the hotel next door is having something added to the roof. Both should be done soon and not a major problem
- Breakfast buffet was basic but I understand breakfast in Italy isnt much anyway! It gets a bit same-y after four days
The tips:
- our room had a fridge where hotel supplies water. Put your own drinks in, just remove while your room is cleaned and put them back after
- the daps restaurant about 100m along beach road away from town and back a block is excellent (well signposted)
- ice cream place in the piazza in old town (recommended by the Times according to the sign) is just yummy and if you want a cheap lunch go to th self service restaurant opposite it
- as already mentioned take bus from airport as only €1.50 each
