Historical Traveller Reviews of Alma di Alghero Hotel

Brand new, friendly, well situated hotel

from TheBestShows
I read most of the reviews about this hotel before booking - and I found them to be pretty accurate. This hotel is well situated for both the Old Town (15-20 minutes walk south) and the beautiful Maria Pia beach (15-20mins walk north).

Its good sized rooms - we had a larger room with a third bed for our child - would easily have coped with a fourth. Kettle, hairdryer, TV (nothing in English though - the manager said that this would be remedied) good furnishings, bedding and towels changed regularly... all fine.

The hotel has recently moved the breakfast room downstairs, freeing up an area on the ground floor which now has new settees and a very large plasma TV. A bit of tidying up is going on outside... will some seating be going out there? That would be nice. The bar serves good coffee but didn't have the right ambiance for an evening drink, in my view.

A few people on the site have mentioned missing the hotel from the airport bus. The airport bus (an orange single-decker ride for €0.70) doesn't actually drive past the hotel! After driving through a built-up area, the bus joins the sea-front at a set of traffic lights. Get off at the next stop (only 100yds or so from this junction) and walk back along the coast and away from the old town for about 8 mins. The Alma is just past the Hotel Florida. We got a cab to be honest though!

I would suggest that you discover the Maria Pia beach before settling for the Lido outside the hotel. It's a short walk away from the hotel, in the opposite direction to the old town. On the way you will pass the La Playa Creperie with good paninis and pancakes, a bank machine, a supermarket (bigger one just by here, in the road parallel to the beach, behind the coast road), an old tobacconist, post box and in the next turning right the Restaurant Pizzeria Alguer Mia, which was our "local" restaurant. Very busy with Sardinians and tourists - had a "homely" and friendly feel. Keep going along the coast road, and you'll see Maria Pia beach signposted through a small pine-tree wood. Well worth the walk, and you can get the AO bus home (stops outside the Alma) from the hospital that's situated there. Buy the tickets in the tobacconists opposite - and a few for spare!

Good days out - boat trip to the Grottos Nettuno €13 Adults, €7 children under 12. (Costs more when you get there to get in!). Go on a calmish day! We also got the bus down to Bosa - a good coast ride for €3 and maybe a return through the mountains for €4.50. You'll need to check the timetable - I think reception have them - maybe the day before you go as it's not a hourly service, to say the least.

Alghero's magnificent for a short break, enjoy!

Beware false promises

from GeorgeCumbria
My wife and I, together with another couple, booked a night at the Alma directly with the hotel. Despite assurances to the contrary, full payment was taken by their agents, Venere, in February. We checked the reservation via e-mail the day before we travelled and received a confirmation from the hotel. On arrival we were informed that there was a problem and only one room was available. The receptionist suggested that one couple stayed at The Alma with the other couple moving to a hotel along the road. Not a chance!

We eventually got two rooms at The Riviera which was a superb hotel (see review).

My advice would be not to trust this hotel. There are better hotels offering a more reliable service in the same area of Alghero.

Good three star hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
This may be the most popular hotel in Alghero on this site, but it would be wrong to think of it as the best in town. It is after all just a three star hotel. In its favour it has very eager to please service - Elizabetta on reception, with her good English and TV personality charm, is the main attraction. The rooms are also at present only a year old, so all is modern. All rooms have a balcony, most with a side view of the sea. Also the breakfast, despite what some say, is fine.

Great for a short break

from SuePlymouth_Devon
Spent 3 nights at the hotel from 4th May. As mentioned before the hotel was spotless, rooms large and well equipped and the staff extremely friendly. We particularly enjoyed the plentiful buffet breakfasts with lots of choice. The Hotel was in an ideal spot for the beach and we walked into the old town each evening where we found some very good restaurants - fish or pizzas being the thing to choose.
We too missed the bus stop, and had to carry our bags quite a long way. The taxi back was organised by the hotel receptionist, costing 20euros, a bit excessive for the 10 minute drive, but worth it for the conveniece.
All in all a great few days away.

A short break in Alghero

from A TripAdvisor Member
Just got back from a three night, mid-week stay in Alghero at the Hotel Alma. Agree with other posts: it's new, clean, large rooms, good breakfast, lovely friendly staff and a few metres from the beach. The bathroom is large and the shower brilliant, with plenty of hot water. The only snag being that the shower doesn't have a tray and if you spend too long in it, ( I did) ,water eventually find its way across the bathroom into the room - a minor quibble though. We had a room near the rear, but it was still pleasant to sit out on the balcony and catch the last of the sun as it dipped behind the apartment block.
Things didn't start too well as the Hotel is not that noticeable from the road, and if you haven't been to Alghero before and dont know where the bus stops, then it is easy to miss the stop. The Via Lido is a lovely promenade, but with luggage becomes something different! Bus from the airport is less than a euro. You stop at a florists shop on the outskirts of the town to buy a ticket which is validated on the bus. Taxi back was 20 euros ( bus schedule not compatible with Ryanair). Two nice restaurants nearby, "Daps" and another one very popular with locals, "Les Arenas" ( turn right out of hotel, right again). There are plenty of restaurants in the town, and we ate at one of those situated on the sea/town wall, where the views are to die for on a balmy May evening.
A couple of tips:
1. There is a kettle in the room, so no need for a travel kettle.
2. I got bitten by mozzies ( in first week of May) so be prepared
3. Fridge in the room, so good for keeping those essential like beer cold
Have a good holiday!

Loved it!

from A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel is in a great location, right by the water and in walking distance from the downtown area!! The personnel are very friendly and helpful!! It is a very clean hotel, I have absolutely no complaints!!

Excellent Value

from DUBL0N
Stayed at this hotel from March 21st to March 28th and I have to say I could not fault anything with the hotel. I am in the hotel buisness in london and the hotel depicks all the london standard of a top hotel all though it be 3*. Staff were very friendly and professional, rooms were very clean and in good repair. not very often you find an inroom safe in this style of hotel was a bonus. Breakfast basic but talking t othe very young ownwer of the hotel he has great plans for the hotel to bring it to another level which are in progress at present. Entrance needs a lot to be desired but will improve. Sardinina is beautiful but March very quiet. Dont go expecting bargains around london prices. Tratorria Pac is FANTASTIC for food.

Nice, clean, comfortable and modern.

from A TripAdvisor Member
One of the most pleasant hotels we have stayed in. The staff were all very attentive and spoke good English. We only had 4 days here. Probably long enough as a lot of the restaurants, shops and tourist attractions were still shut. Guests were English and German tourists and also Italian businessmen. On the day we left the hotel was completely full. Surprising for this time of year although many other hotels are still closed. The breakfast was plentiful with a wide choice to suit all tastes. A pleasant walk along the seafront to the town centre takes about 20 mins. There are several decent restaurants locally. The whole area could certainly do with a spruce-up, including the beach.

It was just ok for me dawg

from autoholic
We had a 4 day weekend here on the strength of the previous reviews. We found some to be accurate and some pushed the boundaries just a tad. We found the hotel with no problems after taking the bus from the airport and walking up Via Lido. It was at the end of an unfinished driveway which unbeknownst to us at that point was to set the trend for our stay in Alghero. It'll be nice when it's finished.
The hotel was very clean and tidy having been completed in Sept 2005. We'd paid for a "superior" room and got 303 on the second floor one from the end. From the balcony you can see the sea, over the apartment building in front of you or across 4 other balconies.
The room was huge with space for an additional bed to enable it to be converted to a family room. We'd booked a double bed but got 2 singles pushed together. Could anyone invent a clamp to keep them together? As it was early in the year the tiled floor did nothing for the temperature, fortunately the a/c unit doubles as a heater.
We spent a very enjoyable Saturday walking the harbour and the town walls, the architecture is amazing, all those closed shops! Yes it was early in the year and a Saturday but it was worse on Sunday. Having said that Alghero is a very pleasant place to visit with nice some great places to see, look out for Stray Cat Central where the harbour wall meets the town, and the Rambalas restaurant but make a reservation as it's very popular with the locals.
We hired a car at the last minute via reception and it was delivered to us at the hotel at 09:30 on a Sunday morning. Now that's service. It was collected the following day from the hotel and all at no extra charge. Be sure to park on Via Lido overnight though or pay the 15 Euro charge levied by the hotel.
The walk to town is pleasant and the promanade will be great, when they finish it. There was rather a lot of litter on the beach and on the waterfronts around the town, I'm hoping they tidy the vast amounts of seaweed (where Alghero gets it's name) away before the summer.
Just a note on the breakfasts at Hotel Alma, you are presented with one platter of processed ham, another of processed cheese, 3 types of cereal, tinned and fresh fruit and more cake that you can shake a stick at. The coffee and juice come from vending machines and are fine. There is no hot option as this hotel does not have a kitchen.
I'm not expecting to return to Alghero or the Hotel Alma. It's a nice, clean, reasonably priced hotel which was ok. I can't see quite why others have raved on, it was ok and that was about it.

Nice Hotel

from Online-Buy
We stayed for 4 days in February 06. The room was spotless clean and very large. The buffet breakfast was okay, lots of different cakes. The staff was always helpfull and friendly. The hotel is located across the street 50 meters from the beach. All rooms have direct dial telephone, satellite TV, air conditioning, hair dryer, mini bar, safe, and complete bathroom. To walk into the old town of Alghero it takes about 15 - 20 minutes. Alghero airport is 7 km away from the Hotel. Nice place to stay.
