“A Perfect Spot for a holiday in Cagliari”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2011

Me and my wife went to Cagliari for a week's holiday and after a brief research on the internet, we decided to stay at B&B Livingston.

The first reason for our choice was the beautiful pictures of the place and we found out that in reality the place was even better :) The rooms were very clean and the bathroom especially was both very modern and very hygenic. There was a beautiful quiet terrace for breakfasts and a beautiful kitchen.

The location of the place was also ideal for us. It was a five-minute walk away from the city center and very close to important spots to walk around (piazza yenne, piazza mateotti, the port etc.) We prefferred spending our afternoons lying on the beautiful beach in Poetto and the bus stop was only a little walk away from the house (Actually on your way back from Poetto, take the "9P" bus which stops right in front of the apartment, we discovered that on the 2nd day :))

And last but not the least, Alberto was very helpful all through the stay. He made recommendations for places to eat and nice quiet spots in Poetto Beach and they were lovely. He provided us with maps and extensive info about things to do in Cagliari. He even helped us book restaurants for dinner (because in some of them nobody speaks English and we didn't know Italian :))

So I guess it is thumbs up for B&B Livingstone and Alberto. I recommend everyone to stay there when in Cagliari.

Situated near center of Cagliari on a quiet street, takes around 5 minutes by foot to get to marina and many nice restaurants nearby. Bus stop to get to Poetto beach is just around the corner and a bus station to take a day trip, for instance, to Pula, Vilasimius is 500 metres away. Buses from airport arrive there as well. If you travel by car free parking can be found in vicinity but the street where B&B is situated is in Zona traffico limitato during some periods of the day (morning and daytime if I'm not mistaken).
The place itself is very clean, new and nicely arranged with charming personal touches. Rooms are really big, airy, quiet and have all amenities one may need. Breakfast is served on a charming terrace but I guess for colder weather inside dining-area is used.
Alberto, the onwer, needs a special mention.
When I first contacted him via email he was very helpful giving me good advices on planning our trip. When we arrived he picked us from the airport, provided with maps and loads of information about the city. He also suggested two very nice restaurants near the B&B - Ci pensa Cannes and L'oca bianca - we tried both of them and definitely recommend. He is very attentive friendly and always eager to help.
Cagliari and it's surroundings are very beautiful and B&B Livingstone is a perfect place for exploring it all.

Room Tip: Not all rooms have balcony - ask for one!

If you are considering Cagliari,this is the place to stay.
Central,quiet yet handy,one of the best accomodation choices I have made.
Alberto is a great wealth of knowledge and is more than willing to help.

We stayed for 4 nights and would recommend it to anyone who wants to be somewhere central but on a quiet street. It's near the bus station with easy access to poetto beach, villasimius, pula and all the other attractions of Cagliari.
The B&B is small and modern and the room was spacious, bright with a big balcony and the owner Alberto couldn't have been more helpful. Great breakfast too:)
