“Good facilities but next to a traintrack and on the flightpath of the airport”
Reviewed 1 November 2010

We were there for one night. Room was spacious and clean, hotel restaurant was good too. However hotel is right next to the traintrack and close to the airport. We were unable to sleep with window open. Even when closed it was noisy. The rooms at the front might be better from this point of view

Went here for mini honeymoon, main one next year. Stayed 5 nights. Found hotel ok, only 10 mins from Cagliari airport. When arrived, was not impressed by standard room but was given upgrade - new room much better, not quite 4* but cosy and clean. Room had TV, some satellite channels, sofas, small balcony, very comfy large bed, small hydromassage bath and very basic hairdryer in bathroom. Rooms are definitely not soundproofed as advertised on some web sites! Can hear people in corridors, airplanes flying over and trains pass by.

Hotel has nice swimming pool, but no spa or wellness centre or massages available - again this is advertised on some websites! Does have a gym, and a sauna has been installed but is not licensed to be used yet.

Found all staff to be very friendly, particularly those on reception who spoke good English too. They would advise us on good beaches to go to, such as Chia and Villasimius (both a good hour´s drive away). There were other beaches only 20 mins away but we wanted to go to the better ones. Also went in Cagliari, about 20mins away, not too much to see but gave us something different to do other than going to the beach.

Ate in hotel 2 nights as only a couple of other restaurants in the area - a nice pizzeria a few doors along and a little italian up the road. Hotel food very good, reasonably priced too. Waiters Ignaccio and Luca were excellent. Breakfasts were basic continential, quite nice, ended at 9.30am.

Overall, would say that this hotel is ideal for a stop over for the airport or business meeting, but not for tourists. The staff made the stay pleasant but the hotel was more like a 3* than 4*, and not the best location for seeing the sights. May go back to Sardinia some day, but would probably stay in the north next time.

Hotel is only OK if you're staying for *one* night. Using as a stop-off if you arrive late in Calgiari as it's about 10 mins from the airport along a straight motorway. Then leave after breakfast the following day and head north for Costa Smerelda where you will find the real Sardinia and the type of holiday you're actually looking for (amazing food, beaches, scenery). Hotel Grillo was kinda smelly, breakfast was AWFUL, and none of the staff spoke a word of English. The hotel is a large B&B, not made for actual holidays. At only €70/night, you can't really expect anything more.

When l booked this hotel l was confused by reviews on Trip Advisor for another Hotel Grillo in Sardinia which were poor. If you are staying in Hotel Grillo, 123 via Carmine in Assemini - relax its a brilliant hotel, the other one is somewhere else. The hotel is about 3.5 miles from Cagliari airport and it cost approx 15 Euros for a taxi. We stayed in a junior suite - the rooms and bathroom are spotlessly clean and in good repair but don't expect 4* - more like 3*. However this is the only negative thing. We stayed for 3 days and the staff at the hotel could not do enough for us, there was an issue with the jacuzzi in our room which they handled brilliantly. There is a lovely pool and sun longer area at the hotel which we really enjoyed. The hotel is 1 min from a Spar like shop if you want to buy drinks/food etc and there are restaurants and ice cream parlours all around and within easy walking distance. You can catch the bus (4 Euros per person return) into the port of Cagliari - bus route 9. This is worth doing just for a walk around the harbour and a look-see at all the expensive boats, some great (but expensive) shopping in Cagliari as well. Overall it was the staff and the service that made this hotel so lovely. Highly recommended.

We(4 adults) stayed at the Il Grillo after a long day of flying from the USA via Rome. We booked on Booking.com and got a good rate for a quad.
We were greeted by Marco who helped us settle in by suggesting a terrific pizzeria within walking distance. He supplied us with silverware and a place to eat our take out in the lobby. The room was very clean, the bathroom was huge and the shower wonderful, and nice fluffy towels.
We liked the Grillo so much that we booked another night just before we left Sardinia. When we had some problems with the AC, the manager promptly moved us to another room.
The breakfast was good. If you stay at the Grillo and you speak English be sure to talk to Lucca, the waiter, he loves to practice his English.
PS the hotel is a little hard to find, it is a sharp left at the rotary. it's worth it. Oh, I forgot to mention the pool. It is one of the prettiest, cleanest pools. find time for a swim
