To keep the rating score and review content relevant for your upcoming trip, we archive reviews older than 24 months.
Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This lets us know that our reviews come from real guests, like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or quiet room than someone who’s stayed at the property before?
We want you to share your story, both the good and the bad. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinion and experiences, which are critical in helping guests make well-informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, and are treated with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we'll post every comment in full, as quickly as possible, after being moderated to comply with Booking.com guidelines. We'll also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
Once a review has been submitted, you can modify it by contacting Booking.com customer service.
We will use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content as well as the property replies to that content.
We will allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is that of a distributor of feedback from both guest and property.
Guidelines and standards for Reviews
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly without limiting expression of strong opinions. They are also applicable regardless of the sentiment of the comment.
Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.
Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language. Comments and media that include 'hate speech', discriminatory remarks, threats, sexually explicit remarks, violence, and the promotion of illegal activity are not permitted.
All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.
Respect the privacy of others. Booking.com will make an effort to obscure email addresses, telephone numbers, website addresses, social media accounts, and similar details.
The opinions expressed in contributions are those of Booking.com customers and properties and not of Booking.com. Booking.com does not accept responsibility or liability for any reviews or responses. Booking.com is a distributor (without any obligation to verify) and not a publisher of these comments and responses.
By default, reviews are sorted based on the date of the review and on additional criteria to display the most relevant reviews, including but not limited to: your language, reviews with text, and non-anonymous reviews. Additional sorting options may be available (by type of traveller, by score, etc...).
눇Stayed here for 2 nights right in the heart of old Bosa and close to the river. Emanuele was a great host who gave us lots of info on what to do and best places to eat. Followed his recommendations and enjoyed very nice meals, reasonably priced. Great situation in the old town and we found parking by the river close by no problem. Lovely bright clean spacious room only downside was a very small shower cubicle with door that was difficult to close. Shame really as it is a really big bathroom and doesn't really need a cubicle!
눇We stayed in Sa Balza for two nights, and we liked it very much! We had the "blue" room, that was overlooking the quiet back street on the second floor, it was very calm and quiet at night, and we slept very well - maybe because of the thick walls of the old house :). It was real stay in real historical house - we loved entering the gates, then the inside yard with old barrels, climbing up the stairs... Real old town ambience! and the room with vaulted ceilings! Our Blue room was really big, very clean, nice and very comfortable. The bathroom was also very clean and nice, with plenty of hot water, just the shower cabin was a bit too small... For bigger people it might be a problem :)
It is written that the property does not have a parking, which is true, but we easily found the parking place on the riverside street, which is just few minutes from the property. The property does not offer breakfast (I knew this when booking), so my personal advice for travelers from the north - if you want something more that just coffee and sweet cruasan, prepare some sandwich and fruits in the evening before, as in the morning you will find nothing "sour" in cafes. :) :) :)
It is very convenient that the owner Emanuele is working in a travel agency just next door - he was very friendly, we got a pre-prepared pack with all possible information we needed - actually, there was enough info on activities for the whole week, not only 2 days :) He told us where to go for dinner, what to do if you got striked by meduza (buy an amoniac stick in advance, at any pharmacy, so you could use it immediately after stroke), where to find anything we would/could/might wish to find and even checked us into our planes! Thank you, Emanuele, we send you our best wishes - we loved Bosa, and we loved Sa Balza, and we appreciate your attitude towards your hometown and Sardinia.
