Accommodation in Cagliari
Hotel 4 Mori is newly refurbished and located nearby
the historical part of Cagliari, not so expensive (70 euros) could be nice if
you stand the noise of the street. Anotther good choice, considering position
and rates is Hotel Italia
in the Marina quarter, the part of the town where you can find lot of
restaurants and night life. If you are looking for something more trendy you
may want to go to Caesar's Hotel or to
the brand new T Hotel; they are both
not so close to the conference site but at less than half an hour walking.
Hotel Regina Margherita
and Hotel Panorama are two
other hotels you may want to check for.
Making your reservation ask always for the special rates for University of Cagliari guests, most of the hotel will give you a small discount on this basis.
The best site by far is bed-and-breakfast.it where you can find all the b&b in Cagliari; it uses Google maps to locate the b&b.
Tips: If you are looking for a place with ADSL in every room you may want to book at Sardinia Domus; it is a brand new b&b, a little more expensive than average but it should be worth the price. If you are willing to stay close to the seaside, Mistral, Il profumo del mare, Lewis and Poettando are right on the beach at Poetto (no more than 15 minutes by bus to and from the conference location). End of June in Cagliari is already quite hot and the water in "Gulf of Angels" is gently warm to allow swimming at any time of the day.
Use the links to the hotels and b&b sites to get up to date rates, contacts and directions. For any further question do not hesitate to contact the organizers.
