“STAFF SPEAK ENGLISH!!!”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

I had a really bad experience at B&B Garibaldi and so I checked into Hotel Italia. The staff are soooo friendly and extremely HELPFUL!!!! The breakfast was superb and there are amazing cafes and restaurants nearby. The beautiful Poetto beach is a 15 minute walk and the city center (cagliari) is a ten minute drive. Had an amazing time and would definitely stay here again

Hotel rooms are spacious, simple and clean. Breakfast is also very good. It is good business or leisure hotel with free WiFi (working in all floors) and free car parking inside the hotel teritory. Hotel location is also very convenient if you want to take a rest near Cagliari airport before/after the fligh. I used my Best Western reward points to pay for staying, only 16 000 points per night.

The most amazing thing about this hotel was his very firendly staff. We had an incident with a car - our rented car tyre got flat. I asked the guy at reception where could I fix it. He was so helpful that he took the flat tyre (it was Sunday evening) and returned it fixed next day! We appreciate it very much!! It was amazing! :)

For a decade I've returned to Quartu to reunite with my Italian family and I've stayed at this hotel several times, purely because of these reasons.

Primarily the workers and receptionists are very friendly, speak English and are most generous.
- There is a WIFI Computer/ WIFI for you own room.
- The rooms are air conditioned, which is a god send when it comes to hot summer days and nights.

- There is a lovely, small breakfast room downstairs whereby one may tuck in to the standard 3*** foods such as custard doughnuts, delicatessen, fruits, yoghurts, a variety of juices and not to mention the meats and cheeses! - Since The Hotel Doesn't serve lunch or Dinner, the opportunity of sneakily snatching additional food into your bags for lunch is possible, However - do so at your own risk!!! I got catch once and they were most displeased... (Dramatic Music*)
But do not fear because there is a two minute walk past the Police Station (Towards the Coast) and there is a lovely little supermarket to purchase your beverages and foods at reasonable prices.

- The bedrooms themselves are rather sustainable; with a table, mini kitchen, chairs, and a bed that is cleaned daily. What more can one possibly ask for? There is a Sky Remote with a relatively proportionate tv screen for amusement and the bathrooms have plenty of bottles of shampoo/soap, you name it. Showers work lovely and there is of course, a safe to protect your goods.

Despite it's relatively old appearance (Navy Blue Blankets and 1970 Themed Walls), It is wrong to praise its reliability.

Not only is the location next door to the police station (so you are guaranteed to be extra safe in an already safe country) but it's five minutes to a shuttle bus that goes either to Cagliari or to Poetto Beach.

For you readers who are accustomed to 5***** Luxury hotels, I'm afraid that this is not the hotel for you. This hotel is suited for those who wish to explore the local area, the culture within both cities and to enjoy the white sandy beaches down the road. It is a safe, reliable hotel to put your feet up and to sleep in comfort.

Noise levels are reasonably low at all times.

There is a car park available too, however any cars that return to the hotel after very later (11pm+) must park in the lower level since their is a gate, CCTV etc - just for precaution.

I APPROVE this hotel - for what it's worth - you will get a bargain, particularly if you are out, enjoying what Sardegna has to offer!

Room Tip: - Any Room on Floor 2 or up tend to be quieter. - Any Family of Four (Any Family with kids) - I'...

If one has a car, it is easier to navigate around Sant Elena than Cagliari. An easy drive from the airport. Good, off street parking. Typical Italian hotel breakfast. Friendly staff. Free WiFi. I note the previous comment about there being few resturant choices: I found 1 excellent restaurant and one good restaurant very close by, plus a few pizzarias. A short drive (or medium walk) past salt lagoons full of pink flamingos (really) to the beach.

This hotel is not in Cagliari. It is an adequate, reasonable, budget hotel. The rooms are large & clean; the bed comfortable; the staff, helpful - & it has free parking. The only problem is that it is in Quartu'Sant Elena which is about 20 minutes drive from Cagliari. & there are very few restaurant choices near the hotel.

It is a bit like thinking you have booked a hotel in central London, only to find that it is in Croydon. No offense to Croydon or Quartu'Sant Elena

But if f you want to be in Quartu'Sant Elena, this hotel is a bargain

First of all, this hotel "is not" in Cagliari, but in Quartu Sant Elena, about 7 miles away. It is a 15 minute unpleasant walk to the seaside, through nothing scenic, or a quick 5 minute drive. A modern cookie-cutter highrise, but the rooms are nice. We had #401 which was actually a small 2 room suite with kitchen, with nice, though small, tiled bathrooms. A fair breakfast offering & spotlessly clean. At 84 Euros for a double it is no bargain, but there are not alot of options in the area. It is located in a combination office/residential setting, of no particular interest, next to what appears to be a police station. Nothing to enjoy about the area &/or nice places to walk. The nearby seaside is decidedly downscale. Would not return to this area, or would find something directly in Cagliari next time. Staff was helpful & courteous & there was internet access in the lobby.
