Hotel Alma di Alghero, Sardinia Italy
★ ★ ★
A compact property, its limited facilties are restricted to the 1st floor reception, lounge and bar and a ground floor breakfast room with a lift serving all levels. Having said that, it is well placed for both the beach, located across the road from the end of the drive, and a realtively comfortable walk in to the old town centre with its wide range of restaurants and bars. A popular choice for those looking for the independence to explore the area and also as a quick stopover for those arriving or departing on early flights but basing elsewhere on the island.
The drive way runs alongside the residential block for 50m opening on to a parking area in front of the property with double steps leading to a side entrance adjacent to a small shrubbery. Some of the bedrooms, on the 3 floors above ground, have staggered white brick balconies with views front and rear across properties along the beach stretch. 6 wide steps lead up to the discreet double glass door entrance.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: Some rooms
The white and terracotta coloured tile floor of the foyer is furnished with 3 large soft sofas and a flat screen television. The reception counter is tucked away in the corner with only a filing shelf behind indicating its use. Towards the back of the foyer is a smart american style bar with cafe style seating at round patio tables. There is a small lift to all floors and uncarpeted stairs lead down to a breakfast room decorated in bright pastels and furnished with sturdy wooden chairs and square tables. Throughout the property, local artwork is on display.
The property has no grounds other than the parking area to the fore.
Area Type: Located behind a residential block with a drive leading on to the main coast road running along the Lidi di Giovanni and sperated from neighbouring Soleado by a further residential block.
