Is cheap and confortable but is not the best hotel. It is not 4 stars, maximum 3. Rooms not so big and small and old tv. Furnitures are old. They have bus service to closest beach. Also big parking very easy to park. Not so close to Cagliary center or to beach, you need car or bus.

The price of this hotel made it attractive to me. Upon arrival I understood why it was so cheap! The area is very remote which in fairness it does say on their website. You definitely need a car here or (like us) will spend lot on taxis. It is approx €25 one way to any decent restaurants. There are none...

Dear customer, we are very sorry that our services were not up to your expectations. We are very sorry for you. When people try to offer the best hospitality and work to make your stay pleasant and to solve problems, become really unpleasant to receive a review like yours.

Our room on the top floor was clean but was smelling like sewage, or rather rotting cadavers. It was impossible to stay there with closed windows. Our neighbors told us the same story. The wine was served in open bottles without labels at the very basic dinner. It was barely drinkable. Three out of ten bottles of white wine on...

Beds was two singles put together which kept on coming apart, tennis court was out of order. Hotel is miles from town with an infrequent bus service. Pool is tiny. Have to also take the bus to get to the beach. Unless you have a car definitely don't go. Rest of the hotel is fine. Staff are ok.

Dear Mr Harra ? we are sorry about your complaint. Anywhere is advertised that Hotel Califfo is 12 km away from town, so it wouldn't be a surprise not find us in the center. The public busses to Cagliari town run every 20 minutes, the bust stop is just in front of the Hotel. We always suggest our guest to...

A friendly hotel. I have no complaints about whatsoever considering the very reasonable rates. Perfectly clean, rooms cleaned thoroughly daily. Breakfast acceptable. Staff great. Bus service stops right outside hotel. My only *advice*.....is book this hotel.....but if your there for more than a couple of days- make sure you book a little car too.

We stayed for 2 nights. A/C was not working and in a very small room that was jut horrible. We complained about that and the not working safety box, but not until we threatened to leave if it was not fixed, they moved us to another much bigger room. A/c was still not working but facility was much better so...

The room had a musty/old smell once you opened the door. We opened the windows for air flow right away. This would not be a solution to the problem as there was road noise and you could hear the humming from the pool pump. The air conditioning did not seem to be working? We turned it on and went out...

I stayed here with my partner for a week. On the positive sides - Decent, clean room with a nice view and en-suite - Nice pool area However: - The hotel location is poor; it is a 40 minute bus ride to Cagliari, the buses stop running at 11 and taxis are very pricey, so not very convenient in general...

Myself and my parents stayed here for 1 night before we went onto stay in a villa for the rest of our stay.
