“Helpful staff but rundown rooms”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2011

This hotel was very well located on one of the main roads into town and so easy to find. We were able to park the bike safely and easily and the old town was only a few metres away. The staff were very friendly and helpful, but the positives end there. Our room smelt of cigarettes and damp, it was small and the sheets were not well ironed (leading you to wonder how clean they were). The shower leaked, the door to the bathroom was almost impossible to close and the whole hotel gave the impression of lack of care and in desperate need of renovation. Breakfast was poor and as uninspiring as the decor in which it was served. We really don't expect luxury of any kind when you pay between 70 and 80 euros a night, but at least everything should be clean, work and of reasonable quality.

This hotel is located at the main square in Iglesias. From outside it looks not good at all, but inside is really nice with a huge room to rest and see TV and read. Our 4-bedded room was really ok and the breakfast was also good for the price we paid. But the best of all is it's location nearby the old town. The staff was very helpful.

Hi,
This one is very small - really small rooms.But the hotel staff especially the lady receptionist makes up for it. They are really gentle and treats you like family.This one is in the centre of Iglesias so you dont miss anything especially the Pitzza.

I would say, if you want to stay in the centre of Iglesias, this is the only one. Le Tour Hotel is a much much better option if you have own transport.If you dont, then Artu is the one for you.

Disadvantages are no swimming pool, no gym and no other activities - It is more or less like a flat in the centre of the town.And there is free Wifi, but the signal strength in first floor is very low - You should come and sit in the lobby

We stayed in this hotel for only one night - and for one night it's okay. Everything seems to be old and run down and would need some updating. Breakfast is okay. Location is good as there are only a few steps into the old town. You can book a place in the garage for an additional 3 Euros.
