Hotel Catalunya, Sardinia Italy
★ ★ ★
This large property dominates one corner of the streets in front of the old town. Although the leisure facilities are restricted to a small bar and 1st floor restaurant, it is in ideal location for exploring the old walled town with its restaurants, bars and shops. It is only a short stroll to the marina beyond which lays the long stretch of beach where numerous facilities are available. A popular choice for those requiring a base as opposed to a full facility resort style alternative.
The 9-storey yellow and blue pastel coloured building stands on the corner of the block with rooms facing out with views across neighbouring streets-although those on 2 sides of the upper floors would see the sea or old town. The front of the property is marked by a wrought iron gate under an arch with black and white tiled-flooring leading the 10m to the double-door entrance.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: Some rooms
The black and white polished tiling continues in to the square shaped single-storey height foyer where the brightly coloured reception desk stands in the centre. There are clusters of art-deco style furnishings providing a lounge area in front of the floor-to-ceiling curtain-draped windows. In one corner stands an American style bar with bistro style seating. Towards the rear of the foyer are a number of meeting rooms and 2 lifts to the upper floors. On the 1st floor, there is a large restaurant facility with well-spaced clusters of sturdy wooden furniture. An additional restaurant is advertised on the 9th floor but this is reserved for corporate events.
This town centre property has no grounds.
Area Type: Situated one block behind the start of the coastal road that runs along the Lido di Giovanni. Facing a public park with residential blocks and businesses to the sides.
