We stayed here for 4 nights and chose it based on it's convenient location to everything. I'd researched a couple of other options that had a little more islandnd charm, but ultimately decided on the Excelsior because of a very late night arrival and it's easy location directly across from the ferries, which made finding it after the town was...

Excelsior is right across the street from the Palau ferry in the lovely town of LaMaddalena. Free parking is available at a lot nearby. The staff was helpful and recommended one of the best restaurants we ate in while in Sardinia (Sotovento). The room was clean with a lovely balcony overlooking the harbor.

Cheapest stay in Sardinia and probably one of the best! Get location, right next to the port so easy to get to. The rooms Re huge! Breakfast was also quite varied and good variety of options available. All for £40.Only nuisance I'd say was the fact the TVs went on everytime we came into the room.

The staff was great, helped with dinner reservations and parking our van. Breakfast every day, meats cheeses and croissants. The fruit was also amazing. I would stay here again. Super close to everything in Palau.

This hotel is in a great location, however, the rooms are small and bed is not very comfortable....the bedding is outdated. The breakfast was good. The staff was very accommodating and welcoming, nice people.

This was our first time in Sardinia and we stayed only a week (far too short a time) at Hotel Excelsior. The hotel is perfectly placed, opposite the port and in the heart of the restaurant area. The room was very clean and fitted all of our needs. The breakfasts were included and set us up for the day. The...

The hotel is well situated, even if noisy in fact. Something is lacking in the hotel. They have a great rooftop that is not valuated, it is used as a solarium where it seems nobody goes... It could be transformed into a bar easily I guess, because you have a great view from here. Rooms are tasteless, you will find...

So this is a three star hotel and it is called Hotel Excelsior. Wow, I guess a hotel doesn't require to have to reach very high standards to reach the three star rank. Lets start with the interior - it is very old and in big need of a renovation. The rooms were fairly large however plumbing is a big...

The hotel is very central, near the village and opposite the ferry. Parking is available for free on the road opposite or you can pay in the parking near the ferry. For the overnight stay we've paid about €13. Restaurants and shops are walking distance and there is a great variety. The staff is very polite and helpful. The room...

Upon arrival we were greeted by the lovely and infectious Maria Luisa who pretty much mapped out our stay recommending a few of her favourite beaches and places to eat. I really fancied trying the much talk of Porceddu which is difficult to find without ordering way in advance which she did for us, and the restaurant was splendid as...
