Alghero, on the waterfront in the northwest of Sardinia, is one seriously stylish city. Its cobbled streets, honey-coloured buildings, sculpted beaches and 16th-century Catalan-Gothic influences make this medieval town a stand-out Mediterranean beauty loved by day-trippers. Stay a little longer to really uncover its charms by staying at a hotel every bit as striking as the city itself, and choose one of these unique boutique hotels in Alghero, bookable on Culture Trip, for a truly chic stay.

1. La Terrazza Sul Porto Alghero

Live the high life from this incredible penthouse apartment in the heart of Alghero, where a communal terrace offers jaw-dropping views across the harbour. The beach is within walking distance, while the city’s much-photographed old town is right on the doorstep. With just four bedrooms in the guest house, you’re guaranteed a personalised service from the welcoming owners, who will help with anything else you need while on holiday.

2. Villa Las Tronas Hotel & Spa

This spectacular five-star property was once a residence of the Italian royal family, who holidayed in Sardinia until the 1940s, so it’s no surprise this beachfront bolthole is not short on luxe. Surrounded by water on three sides, the hotel has its own five-acre (2ha) garden guests can stroll through to reach the centre of Alghero, plus two seawater swimming pools, a spa and an opulent vegetarian fine-dining restaurant.

3. Bienestar Maison de Charme

Swerve giant waterfront resorts and stay at this delightful B&B in the centre of Alghero instead. There are just six rooms in the property, and all come with fridges and coffee makers, so you can make yourself at home and cut costs. A free breakfast is served daily, but there’s also a café, bar and deli available so you’ll never go hungry, whenever you fancy a snack.

4. Villa Mosca

The next best thing to having your very own Sardinian retreat, this regal villa facing the sea feels like a private holiday home. Though the villa has 5,000sqm (54,000sqft) of beautiful grounds, there are only six rooms inside, or you can book the self-contained smaller villas in the gardens, which come with their own lounge, patio and kitchenette for complete privacy.

5. Hotel Catalunya

It’s worth booking this hotel close to Alghero’s historic centre just for the view from the property’s ninth-floor Blau Skybar, which offers DJ sets, live music and cocktails overlooking the whole Coral Riviera. There are 128 simple, modern rooms plus spacious family suites for those travelling with friends or children. There’s also a conference centre and park-facing restaurant, while the beach is just moments away.

6. Hotel Domomea

It’s hard to believe you’re in the centre of bustling Alghero when you’re taking a dip in this hotel’s rooftop swimming pool after escaping the crowds. The property is easy to reach for anyone visiting the beaches and attractions of the city, yet feels like an intimate hideaway thanks to traditional wooden decor, swathes of pastel fabric, an outdoor veranda with garden and soundproofed rooms that guarantee a peaceful night’s sleep.
