Another more complete description of the apartment is in the airbnb website.
Marinella was very helpfull and friendly to us. Communication was brilliant, informations accurate, room itself was clean and very comfortable. Location is great - 10 mins walking to city centre, 15mins to bus + train stations.
I can only recommend and i give 5 stars rating!
Communication was a disaster.
Marinella's flat is beautiful. It's situated a bit on the hill which gives it an awesome view. The balcony is the best part.
We found everything to our needs.
We didn't met Marinella face-to-face, but she was always available via cell-phone and very helpful. The appartment is equipped with everything you need on your vacation. And the balcony is absolutely amazing!!! As the house is on the top of a hill I would recommend to take a taxi on arrival even if you have small baggage. All in all we would stay here with pleasure once again.
@Marinella, thank you for everything
We had a great stay at Marinella's place in Cagliari. The room was clean and had a comfortable large bed. The bathroom was clean as well. We liked especially the great view from the balcony were we spend some nights with a glass of wine. Also, the apartment is in a good area and close to the city center by foot. We highly recommend this place.
Marinella a été très serviable pour nous aider dans ce sejour. L appartement est grand et propre les trois chambres permettent d echanger avec d autres hotes sans se gener. Proche du centreville 15 minutes a pied mais attention ca grimpe!! Calme et agreable.
**Please read this review before booking a room in this apartment!**
We had a disappointing stay here so thought we would write an honest review of our experiences so you know what to expect.
1 - the room is falsely listed! it has a single bed, not a double bed so it is impossible for two people to sleep in this room and also very uncomfortable.
2 - this room leads out onto the balcony which is not private and is used by everyone - which means they can see everything in the room so there is no privacy. If you book the other room you have a bigger bed and access to the balcony so this listing should not include the balcony as a feature as the whole flat has access to it.
3 - there aren't any locks on the doors or any safe deposits so you have to be very trusting that the other guests won't steal anything of value.
4 - there is only one route into the center with a huge hill to climb - this takes about 25 mins to walk so it's long and boring.
5 - Marinella's hosting skills were left to be desired as she expected us to take the kitchen garbage out and didn't provide us with clean towels or clean sheets the whole 8 days we were staying there. She also made a rude comment about us sleeping together when we complained about the size of the bed.
6 - a minor issue, but annoying nonetheless, is that the doors slam really loudly when the windows are open and can't be closed quietly.
7 - Marinella needs to invest in some decent pillows as the fillings were so deteriorated that it felt almost worthless using them. This caused neck pain every morning.
8 - Before booking we asked if we could use the kitchen to make small meals which Marinella agreed with. However, we felt very uncomfortable when using the kitchen as she made us feel like we were invading her home space by giving us funny looks.
We booked this room based on the good reviews that Marinella received, however we are completely shocked that both her and the room have not lived up to their reputation. We can only conclude that these people stayed in the big room with the queen-sized bed. All the above points are standard things you expect to find even in cheap hostels.
Disappointing stay, will not recommend this place to anyone!
I am really sorry to read that Ruth did not enjoy her stay in Cagliari. It sounds weird, as all the other guests who stayed in my apartment have never complained about anything.
I confirm that the room which Ruth had is exactly as described in the website. It is correct when Ruth writes that the bed is a double bed and not a king size bed.
It is also correct when Ruth writes that the balcony is not private, it is a common balcony for all guest to use and share. I might not have specified this in the website. However, this has never disturbed any other guests until now. All of them so far were very happy to be able to sit outside and enjoy the wonderful view from the balcony.
There aren't any locks on the doors or any safe deposits. Yes you have to be trusting, it is wrong and completely improper, to expect that the other guests steal something. This is not the spirit of the community airbnb, nor the feelings of people that have stayed e will book my place.
It is regretful that I could not give Ruth what she had expected, but what Ruth had booked was a room within a shared flat, and not a whole apartment or an hotel.
About the other Ruth's remarks please take into consideration the other reviews in the airbnb website.
I tryed to do my best con Ruth, but it didn't help.
Absolute perfect. Nice appartement, near the City and a wonderful view.
The apartment is located in Cagliari centre, with tidy balcony and with wonderful view to Cagliari harbor. Very strategic place to live
Marinella's place is very nice, central and spacious. We had a great time in Cagliari and in Sardinia and will definitely return again! I'd recommend this apartment to everyone wholeheartedly.
Appartment is great. 10 mins walk from old city with stunning view from wonderful terrace. Unfortunately we haven't met Marinella, as she was away, but in any case we felt very welcomed there. Would recoomend this lovely appartment for anyone who wants great and affordable stay in Cagliari.
