I often travel to Italy for business purpose. At least once per month I have to fly from Scotland to Rome or Milan and work there for couple of days.
This year the corporation for which I work decided to organize a business trip in a period considered in the whole peninsula high season, august. Due of a longer stay than usual in Rome, I had the opportunity to spend a long week end from friday to monday out of the city.
For my destination I chosen Sardinia. The choice fell on T-Hotel in Cagliari, one of best hotels in Sardinia, since I got impressed by the very positive feedback released by the other guests.
At beginning I thought this is more a place for couples or small families but I have to say that my trust in this structure has been totally accomplished. I had what I came for: relax, great food and smart service.
The T-Hotel arranged for me a transfer from the Sardinian airport, fast checked-in I have been described all the services available: the SPA, the restaurant, info on room service, sight side, details about the urban area. Everything has been explained fast, with efficiency and in not formal tone.
If there is someone which got the essence of what really does mean to run a Smart hotel this must be the THotel management: all the reception staff has been perfectly trained and all of them have always a smile on their face. This is wonderful attitude, because it’s really good to see people working here with such team work disposition and the efforts they do to let enjoy as much as possible their customers.
Walk or relax?
I had walk around the city centre but honesty what I have been more focused in my three days were the SPA and the restaurant. In specific case I’ve tried both à la carte menù and “degustazione”: I appreciated both of them, still I really thank the very nice chef which always directed me on good choice, in order for me to taste the real sardinian food, with a “plus” touch of very interesting variations. Italian kitchen doesn’t have to be just traditions, and here they got the spirit of it.
Saturday morning I decided to ask for some guided tour and, thank the young guy working at the front desk, the van picked me up and I’ve been brought through the most interesting sardinian place in 50 km range from Cagliari, after all I was in vacation and I didn’t want to rush and neither to go far away.
I asked to the driver to bring me back a little in advance and he prontly said me yes! Was in fact a very hot day and I really needed a shower and fast swim before having dinner.
The return and conclusions
On sunday I spent a wonderful time at the bar after my dinner and I rebooked my transfer to the airport. Suprisingly I had also a small discount on my return lift to the airport! Was really a pleasant and relaxing experience. I will definitely rate and quote this hotel to my company in case of any meeting (hopefully will be any soon soon) to the island, because the T-Hotel has indeed also a very well furnished congress space.
