Bed and Breakfast Centro Storico via Manno
Ranked #173 of 259 Cagliari B&B and Inns
Reviewed 21 October 2017

This review is a bit late but I still need to share our experience. We arrived quite late and did not realise Renato was not normally on-site. We had been held up for hours by the rental car company. As we got near to the B&B our car stopped completely, blocking a small street. We don't speak Italian and didn't know what to do. I called Roberto, who was initially a bit upset we were so late, but as soon as he understood our problem he rushed around to help. He called the company for us, and told them it was not right that we should have to pay for towing (as they wanted). He also dealt with the tow truck driver, and asked the restaurant over the road to stay open as we hadn't eaten all day. He was completely our saviour! As others have mentioned, he was also great at telling ius where to go and how to negotiate Cagliari. We were on the top level (no lifts - we knew this in advance). We are well into our sixties and Renato insisted on carrying both bags up and down again when we left. He could not have been more helpful.
The apartment is brilliantly located for a view for both sides (top level), shops and restaurants. It is spacious and comfortable. A cotton blanket would have been good as when we were there the duvet was too hot. As others have mentioned, the breakfast was basic, and we mainly bought our own stuff. Some fresh bread and eggs would have been appreciated.
You do need to be aware of the stairs. They are quite steep and after long days out can seem a bit daunting, but we saw it as extra exercise to wear off the wonderful pasta and wine! If you have a car, you can park in a great, and inexpensive parking station that Renato also told us about. It is an easy walk away. All up, the apartment, and Cagliari were wonderful for us (except the horrible car company- there will be another review about this). Thanks again Renato for saving us!

We stayed in this bed and breakfast for two nights, based mostly on the glowing reviews received by users. We soon realised that the reviews were primarily about the Cagliari sights and the location of the b & b. We booked the room through the b & b’s website. The manager answered promptly and we advanced partial payment through Paypal. The manager met us upon arrival at the b & b. He was very helpful and pleasant. As he does not live in the building, he showed how the various locks worked. The bathroom was well appointed, the room quite large (in fact it had a full kitchen) and the location was great. However breakfast was self serve and very skimpy. Juice, packaged pastries, cereal, milk, water, coffee, tea and some dried breads were our choice. We thought this poor when compared to other places we have stayed in Italy. The price we paid sure was for the location, not the quality of the breakfast. In fact we found a hotel (albeit outside the city center) for less. Free WiFi is offered in the room.

This b & b is ideally located near the harbour, the Citadel, shopping and many restaurants. Rather than a b & b it is really a downtown apartment/room with some breakfast food provided. The room is not well sound proofed. The floors are wood and the people above us came in late and we heard every footstep in the preparations for bed. We needed the air conditioning on as we had to close the windows due to street noise. Otherwise this is a fine establishment with a great location to walk around all of the main sights of Cagliari and to take in the pleasant atmosphere of Sardinia.

The rooms are apartments really, not B&B rooms. The rooms are big and clean. Short walk to restaurants and shops. Very helpful and friendly owner, helped us with our itinerary. Air con was very welcome!

We really enjoyed our stay at this B&B. Everything about it was perfect: the accomodations, the location, the VIEW, the host... We originally saw the website and thought it may be a nice place but it very much exceeded the high expectations we already had before we got there. The apartment was very clean, was very spacious (even with an extra fold out bed), had an nice modern look to it (exactly as it looks on the website) and it was very close to everything you could need while on vacation- great restaurants, shopping, attractions, etc... all within SHORT walking distance. To top it off, the host (Renato) was great. He not only offered to pick us up and drop us off at the airport for a very, very low rate, he even helped us get all our bags up to our room, gave us helpful tips on what to do while there and where to go. It seemed he knew everything there was to know about the area and even gave us some tips for things to do for the last leg of our trip in Rome as he is equally familiar with that area. Finally, and most importantly, for the price that we paid, this B&B is absolutely a steal- we got so much more for our money than we have at other B&Bs in cities accross the world. If I ever return to Cagliari, I will definitely be staying there again.

Very nice place to stay, although it was a shame we were not put up at the actual B&B as the pics on the site look lovely. We were put up in an appartment down the road. There was a slight mix up, because we had booked a room for 3 through hostelworld as this was the only option still available and there were only 2 of us. Very convenient to everything in town. We had a studio apartment that was tastefully decorated and breakfast was available in the private kitchen. Breakfast was a bit on the light side as there were yoghurts and some wrapped pastries and toast. And that was it. But there is a nice coffee shop/library across the street that makes excellent cappucinos and sell fresh pastries.

In all great place to stay if you want to keep a bit to yourself.
