It's Better to Travel than Arrive?

Hotel Review : Sa Domu Cheta, Cagliari, Sardinia

My little room.

It was off season in Sardinia, hotel prices were down, there were cheap flights on Ryanair, and Halina was having a birthday -  bring on the girls weekend!

After a few of us doing some research, we settled on Sa Domu Cheta, a small family run hotel fabulously located in a narrow little street in Cagliari old town.

We had a mix of shared rooms and I grabbed up a single room so that no-one was bothered by my bonkers sleeping issues.  My comfortable little room, with air-conditioning, large single bed, full bathroom, wardrobe and reasonably priced minibar came to about €45/night and also had lovely big shuttered glass doors that opened to a juliet balcony looking over the interior courtyard (which, if I'm honest, could have done with a bit of a clean).

The only negative to my room was that the shower was teeny tiny and I could barely bend over to pick up my shampoo from the shower floor (no shelf).  If you were tall or a bit "well padded", you'd be stuffed.  Good water pressure though, and plenty of hot water. 

Part of the breakfast selection.

Breakfast was included in the room rate and was pretty good - cold meats, bread, cereal, yoghurt, a fab egg boiling machine (I'd advise 7 minutes to a perfect egg), and really good coffee made by the friendly staff.  Either Mama or Nonna make the morning cake and they all looked good, but one strawberry blancmange made an appearance every morning we were there, looking a little worse for wear each day - maybe steer clear of the milky desserts …

Reception isn't manned 24/7, but you get a key coded for the front door and your room door, so there's no problem coming and going.  The hotel can organise airport pick-up with no problems, and I arrived at 11pm to find Papa there waiting for me - obviously no issues with strange arrival times.

The hotel is in walking distance to the harbour and everything else you might want to see.
