Alma di Alghero Hotel
Travel Blogs from Alghero
Hey there, sorry to have a gap in the virtual tourist ride. Yesterday, Sunday, we left Portoscuso and headed North on the Island to a fishing port called Alghero – not a small port by any standards – a mix of traditional fishing boats moared in with pleasure craft and charter boats. We traveled along the coast – steep coast for 46 kms from our lunch stop, Bosa Marina to ...
... you can’t rely on road names or numbers to find your way around the island (You’ll just be frustrated and lost, trust me!) A better approach is to figure out which town you are headed towards and carefully watch for signs in that direction. This seems to have worked out pretty well this week in our travels, except for in Sassari, where we were lost twice in the same day!
On Wednesday, we drove south ...
... get a little out of control and prepare our antipasti feast on the balcony as the last supper. The sky's big surprise, perhaps a parting gesture commenced at 7.30 pm, because it has been reasonably cloudy since we arrived we had not been afforded this unforgettable experience. Mother Nature gave us a light show that went until 9.30 pm, it is hard to describe the colours as the sun was setting beyond the islands on the horizon ...
... a head shade at a cost of 5 euros. We settled in for an afternoon of people watching and knocking back the African sand to sand salespeople, do you know the blokes go around selling what they call bikinis (really just a tiny bit of material) and the girls try them on right there and then! The water is too cold for most people but not for the Don and M-L but they are not in ...

A beaut spot under the shadows of the cathedral and castle walls overlooking the ocean and the very important landmark just offshore called Brown Island. Shared the area with a few others including ma and pa, 80 something's with an English accent, ma tall with trackie daggie shorts, how do I know and why is this important I hear you asking - well it goes like this. I decided to do a little exploring down ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Alma di Alghero Hotel
Nice friendly hotel alma
Stayed for 3 nights, staff very friendly and helpful. Room was large and airy and the mural on the wall was a nice touch. Breakfast food was fine, bar in hotel was nice and always easy to buy a drink. Nice walk into the old town, also two supermarkets nearby for getting odds and ends, train station also on the same road. We took trip to sassari on the train 3.10 euros return, this was a pleasant town to visit for half a day. We would stay at this hotel if we visited Alghero again.
A hidden gem
Stayed here for three nights. The staff are extremely helpful and welcoming. We were personally shown to our room by Elizabetta on arrival and given plenty of help and advice about the area. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the buffet breakfast full of variety. Location is great, on the beach front and 15 min walk to the 'old town'. Easy to get to from the airport, just catch the airport bus for less than a euro. I recommend this hotel to anyone and would definately stay here again.
Not a 5 stars but very nice
We was in Hotel Alma di Alghero in December 2005 and the Hotel was new and confortable.
Nice position right on the beach but just 10 minutes from city centre, breakfast is good and staff helpful.
We raccomand this hotel and we will come back.
Just got back from staying at the Hotel Alma ( 4 adults and 1 child 6yrs). The room still had plenty of space even with a double and a single bed. The staff were fantastic and answered any questions we had. The buffet was very good, a good range of foods. The rooms were large and were cleaned excellently every day. The hotel is situated very close to the town and the beach is directly opposite. Would definately recommend this hotel
Good Value Stay
Had a very pleasant weekend break here. Staff were helpful and breakfast good for a buffet. Staff helpful. Rooms large and clean, but not very soundproof. Good position on waterfront. Being new, it still needs to add information on local transport, activities and attractions for first time visitors.
Very nice hotel
We took a last minute trip to Alghero and stayed in this hotel as we read good reviews on it. OK it's not a 5 star hotel but we paid a good rate, room was modern and very clean, comfy bed, staff were fantastic, the location of the hotel is good, breakfast was fine, no problem at all with this hotel. Incidentally whilst in Alghero we visited one of the "top" hotels there, and whilst it had a higher star, the rooms were old and musty and the hotel had no atmosphere. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone travelling to Alghero. The welcome we received when we arrived, the help and info we got from the reception staff, and the quality of the rooms makes this a "upper level" 3 star hotel. Very easy to walk in to town too.
The best Value we ever spent
We stayed at Hotel Alma di Alghero in Alghero and were more then pleased with the high value we received for the money we spent. It is a nice quiet hotel in front of the sea and just 10 minutes from city centre.
The staff was very helpful and friendly and took lots of time with us showing us maps and brocures of things to do and even gave us recommendations on places to eat that fit in with our budget.
I would definately recommend this hotel to any one who places value on quality.
we will definately stay there again!
Little gem of a hotel!
Spent 3 nights (long weekend) in this lovely hotel. Brand new and excellent value for money. Large rooms are spotlessly clean and have beautiful hand painted sea frescos on the walls. Prime beach location. Staff are very pleasant and helpful. One small minus point - when we first arrived, we had lovely fresh brewed Italian coffee at breakfast-time. By the third day they had installed a coffee vending machine (free), but the coffee is nasty. However, for Euro 1.50 you can get the real stuff freshly brewed from the hotel bar from morning to night.
Would definitely stay here again.
Excellent with a perfect location
I really spent a nice time in this hotel...very friendly and next to the beach. Staff was very nice. I think i will be back there!
Breakfast was excellent, the standard rooms are enormous.
Loved this hotel
Stayed at this hotel in October. It is in a great position, just metres from a beautiful, clean beach and 15 minutes walk to the Old Town. The rooms are spacious and immaculate. The staff were lovely and very helpful. Nothing too much bother for them. Breakfast was good and plentiful. Will definitely be staying here again next time I visit.
