If you are visiting Cagliari and you are not going there by car, the hotel Miramare is the best choice for you. First things first. Why not by car? Well, the hotel is placed at a main road at the port of Cagliari. It is a nice location, but for parking, it's hell. You are lucky if you find a spot, so you are better of without a car.
As soon as you enter the hotel via a big old entrance near a café, you will get the first great experience in this hotel: the elevator. It's a small old elevator, fits two persons inside, closes manually and drives at a decent speed. It certainly feels like good old times.
The reception area is designed nicely and as soon as you arrive, a friendly staff member will welcome you. Usually, they will offer you something to drink to pass the time during the check in. You can have a look around in the nice inside/outside area of the hotel. As it is really small, there is just a small, but nice and cosy spot to sit outside, right next to the reception. The breakfast room is also near the reception. Designed really nice, with an old fireplace and old stucco on the ceiling.
The rooms are spacious and every room is designed differently.
I had a room, which was designed by an artist and had lots of stuff glued to the ceiling. So if you lay down in bed, you can see green painted guitars, playtoys, dolls, computer parts and all kinds of stuff. Other rooms are kept the old way and also pretty nice.
They are quiet at night, so even though you are in the middle of the city, you can get a good night sleep.
The breakfast is also delicious, but beware: if it's not included in your room rate, the price is pretty high.
The location itself is amazing. You can go shopping of sightseeing in the old town of Cagliari. Nice restaurants are also nearby and if you need any advice, the staff will help you with everything out.
So if you are looking for a great place to stay and get a little Rome feeling on Sardinia. This is the place to be.
