A small family business hotel above the arcades of via Roma, it offers front row views of Cagliari's port from the moment you walk in. First opened in 1938, this hotel was part of the elite and crème de la crème of Cagliari's hotels. Famous ballerinas and high society people have stepped their foot and slept in this hotel's domains. Each room is decorated with impeccably maintained antique furniture. The rooms are spacious and airy. There is also a common space with a small antique bar tucked in a corner from where Mr Palmas will entertain and delight his guests with a glass of vernaccia of his own production.
