We checked in to this hotel at short notice on 16th September after a disastrous experience with our self catering accommodation in the old town. The reception staff speak English and could not have been more helpful, finding us a quiet room near the centre of the town with a lovely sun terrace and completely salvaging what was left of our holiday. The room was bright and airy and clean with a sympathetically renovated modern bathroom. There are several flights of stairs in all of the properties in the old town as Bosa is a medieval town with all the houses built over 3 or more levels. The building we were in however has a lift which takes you all or most of the way depending on which floor you are on. Breakfast is a perfectly adequate continental affair with fresh breads, cheese, meats, yogurt and fruit as well as good coffee and juice and some cereals. The waiting staff speak limited English, but there's nothing complicated about breakfast so it wasn't a problem and they were extremely friendly despite our sparse Italian!! Bosa itself is charming without being overly touristy yet, although clearly there is quite a bit of regeneration and development going on so that may change. There is a good selection of eateries offering local Sardinian fare at a range of prices and are pretty good value for money. We based ourselves here for 10 days, but frankly if we had to do it again we would stay a little further south on this coast closer to Oristano and perhaps just visit Bosa for a night or two. The coastal road to Alghero gets lots of good press, but again, the coastal scenery on the east coast is more spectacular and we were appalled at the amount of litter strewn along the road at every point you might be able to stop - Alghero was so busy we couldn't even manage to get a parked so we just turned round and came back - one to miss in our opinion. Go south towards Oristano and visit the lovely beaches further down this coast - S'Archittu or San Giovanni - and don't forget the ruins at Tharros.
