Hotel Regina Margherita Hotel Hotel 4 star
Viale Regina Margherita 44 Cagliari, Italy
Amy Adejokun Section editor

Located on the avenue that runs from the sea to the city, in the shade of high buildings and tall trees, the Regina Margherita is one of Cagliari's most representative hotels.
Popular among holidaymakers, but equally well-equipped for those travelling on business, this establishment is a good reference point for a stay in Sardinia's capital: it's renowned for its 20 years dedicated to providing efficient service and a thoughtful welcome.
The communal areas could do with some renovation to get rid of the visible signs of ageing, which, however, don't seem to affect the guest rooms: the accommodation units are in fact modern and well-equipped, and fitted with hypoallergenic wall-to-wall carpeting.
Finally, there is also a restaurant in this establishment which boasts years of experience and knows how to keep up with the times.

    Location 8.4 /10

    The Regina Margherita stands on the avenue that bears the same name, and is easily accessible by car or on foot. Its neighbour, the 'La scala di ferro', was the first hotel to open in the city, and it is said that Lawrence of Arabia once stayed there; it now houses the local prefecture.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    It has a capacity of approximately 100 guests and provides a simple but elegant setting: the Regina Margherita brand makes a timid appearance in the rooms, which almost seem to be in the middle of a renovation process that has been suddenly halted.
    The common feature of all the room categories (standard, superior and deluxe) is that they're all decorated with elegance, without being overdone, their classical style boasting remarkable attention to detail. The single superior rooms feature a double bed, the soundproofing is excellent, and all the units are fitted with hypoallergenic and fireproof wall-to-wall carpeting. There is also a plan for women travellers.
    All the rooms are equipped with the necessary amenities: plasma-screen TV, telephone, air-conditioning and a mini-bar. The bathrooms are fitted with a hydromassage shower, and with a bathtub in the superior and deluxe categories. The cable Internet connection is rather dated, but is soon set to be replaced with wireless technology: guests have to pay for this service (just under 2 per hour).
    The bathrooms aren't very big, but the toilets feature rounded lines and have a highly modern look about them: they contribute to the 'trendy' style of the hotel and fit in nicely with the size of the room.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    The Regina Margherita is still considered one of the best hotels in the city, and it has aged well, with an elegant exterior and a tastefully decorated interior.
    The hotel has retained a formal atmosphere, thanks to its classical appearance and the size of the building. The entrance hall leads into a separate reception area, which occupies a large room with doors leading to the restaurant on one side and the breakfast room on the other.
    The RM has a lot in common with a luxury vintage car: spaciousness, robustness and good service. However, the communal areas on the groundfloor could do with some renovation: they lack intimacy and the architectural style of these big spaces darkens the area and causes it to lose some of their charm.
    However, the hotel has everything you need to enjoy a pleasant stay in Cagliari: its location (10 minutes from the centre), its conference and meeting rooms, and the care taken to make its guests feel comfortable.

    Although very different in style, the RM and the T hotels have in common a close attention to detail, which is such a pleasant feature when away from home.
    The bar in the entrance hall serves snacks at all hours, which is perfect for late arrivals. There is also a hairdressing salon and a special service for women, who can ask for their dinner to be brought up to their room.
    Another of the establishment's assets is its area dedicated to conferences. As well as the indoor area of the conference hall, which can seat between 25 and 300 people, this facility also includes a terrace that afford a view of Cagliari and The Angels Gulf.

    Following significant renovation work that began at the end of the 80s (and lasted until 2003), the hotel underwent a second renovation phase that started in 2004.

    Food and drink

    The restaurant service is available only to big groups. However, the bar serves snacks in the evening, should you be arriving late in the day.
    Management does not approve of the famous 'Sardinian Dinner', a weekly feature of many other hotels in the region, but it does provide a local menu so that you can sample some of the more traditional dishes.
    Given that the Nuoro region (in the centre of the island) is the heart of Sardinian cuisine, fish isn't exactly a specialty here: however, the meat is particularly tasty (too bad for vegetarians), and typical of Sardinian cuisine.
    You should try the famous suckling pig.

    To know

    The Regina Margherita opened in 1982 and belongs to the Jolly hotel chain.
    It used to be a theatre (which stayed open during WWII) but it was destroyed by a fire during a fascist demonstration. After the war, it was bought by the Counts of Marzotto, who turned it into a hotel.
    Two years later, the establishment was bought by its current owners, who carried out renovation work (1984-1987) and opened the hotel under its current name, which makes it the most historically significant hotel in Cagliari.
