I have stayed 2 days in the hotel Gabbiano. The hotel is well situated, no so far from the center, but without the noise of the streets. Rooms are mostly with a sea view, I could admire the sunshining every morning. Breakfast is very well prepared and tasteful. Sea is just at the feet of the hotel, so you can...

Before you go there check how will you get there because there are not many signs indicating where is the hotel (watch out for one-way streets). The location of the hotel is amazing and if you check-in in room 233 and one above you will have a large balcony with a view on palau and the ferry crossing the sea....

I chose Il Gabbiano because of its location and was not disappointed. Perfect location directly at the sea side in walking distance from the town center but far away from its noise. Hotel looks a bit tired from the outside, rooms have air condition, are renovated and clean, single room has decent size, the bathroom is very spacious. Highlight is...

Beautifull surrounding. It's an old hotel stuck in time. No modern comforts and worst of all there was no airconditioning. It was to hot and we didn't sleep at all. Breakfast was good. Nothing special but ok.

Having lived on La Maddalena for 2 years I was unsure of where to stay when I returned for a visit on a busy August weekend. But Il Gabbiano was a perfect fit. It is a bit older and takes a beating from the elements being perched on the edge of a cliff right above the beautiful green water of...

The hotel is nicely located with amazing view. The lady at the front desk was extremely helpful she even managed to find for us a zodiac rental for 50€/day which is very cheap! The only negative thing is that the bed was not comfortable but again the room rental is low so qualité prix it's perfect!

As others have said, this is a good location - a short walk to the town so we could leave the car in the hotel car park and we had a fantastic view from our balcony on the 4th floor. The room was clean but even in October the lack of air conditioning meant the room was uncomfortably hot at...

We stayed three nights on June '12. We had a big room with a great seaview. Recently refurbished, with a great bathroom. Very clean. Very attentive service. We'd repeat if we had to come back to Maddalena Island.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Staying at "Il Gabbiano" Hotel means living the story of La Maddalena Island as a protagonist. The hotel dates back to 1955 and was the first to be built on the Island: its location, unique and unrepeatable, is its testimony! The hotel "Il Gabbiano" lies amid a mosaic of rocks, caressed by a crystal clear sea, with a beautiful view of the Islands of La Maddalena, Santo Stefano, Spargi, watching the route of the ferries from Palau to La Maddalena. We have 33 full furnished rooms, with sea view e balcony, a private dock, a restaurant, a bar, a free private parking an a free WIFI area for our customer. Finding us is very easy...you just have to follow the sea!!! Once you get at the port of La Maddalena, keep the sea on your left and in 10 minutes by foot here you are at the Hotel. If, instead, you arrive at La Maddalena by car, just after the little fishers' bay of Cala Gavetta, take the one way street that first goes up and then down again to the sea: there, on the rocks, you will find "Il Gabbiano Hotel"! ... more   less
