Olbia|2.19km from downtownThe hotel is literally within walking distance from the airport; free parking is available on premises, next to the building. Across the street are two supermarkets, and a few meters down the road in both directions are shopping centres. The exterior of the building looks a bit drab, but the interior appears to be recently refurbished, with a designer style in the common areas. and a sleek, business-like design in the rooms. The rooms have a decent size, with enough space for a business desk (equipped with one ‘proper’ (CEE type F) socket for European plugs) and a ‘lounge with armchairs and a little table. There is also substantial storage space available for your wardrobe. The bathroom also has a decent size, with a spacious shower; the surfaces for placing your toiletries are a bit limited, though, in particular if you travel as a couple. To make up for that, there is a hairdryer, a shaving mirror, and another type F socket. The bed is – as usual in Italy – a bit hard; two pillow types (one hard, one soft) are provided. A nice feature are the sliding doors to keep the sun out; the work very well and keep the room absolutely dark. To make the experience complete, the windows are very well noise-insulated – yon only hear the (slightly to noise) air-conditioning (even with starting airplanes). A downside: The ventilation seems to rely on opening the windows, which spoils the noise insulation and air-conditioning… The free WiFi works well; staff throughout the hotel were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is limited to three choices of set combinations (“Italian”, “Continental”, and “English”); it is being served, so allow some extra time. The restaurant is a bit ‘hit-and-miss’: The starter (gnocchi in my case) was excellent, the main (chicken) a failed attempt at haute cuisine. The interior is again designer-style, creating a nice atmosphere; note in particular the nice outdoor dining pavilion. Lots of locals are coming here for some fine dining, so make sure you book ahead.
