    the outside pool would have been nice, if it was cleaned and if you could used it :-)

    I would never go back to this hotel or to Opatija. The staff is rude and unprofessional (especially a person called Gabriel), the hotel is old, it has a "socialist" set-up, the rooms are ugly and all the customers who make a reservation via Booked.net get rooms with a view on the street, so do not expect a sea view...plus parking is a problem and you cannot leave your car in front of the hotel even if there are free places there because "thee places are reserved for other customers"...this seems to be the case in all Istria, so it is preferred to down more south to Dubrovnik or stay in Umag on the north.

    Very good

    The location of the hotel is great. Right by the sea, and very short walking distance from the centre of town. The breakfast is quite ok. The room is clean, and overall good value for money. I would be happy to go back, in the condition of gutting a sea side room rather than a road one.

    If you don't get a sea view and have the room facing the road, it is extremely loud from the cars. You have to have the window open as there is no air conditioning, and would be way too stuffy and hot otherwise. However road side rooms specially lower floor, really load from the road.

    Very good

    The staff were nice and friendly. The location was amazing- right on the beach and the hotel had its own private beach. They have a bar and pool table. Good for families and couples but not much to do except go to the beach!

    It was very dated and needed modernisation. The breakfast was very low quality and the restaurant service was not very good. They also said that they had table tennis in the brochure but they had thrown out the table! The hotel was generally clean but very old fashioned.

    Helpful and friendly staff in general, decent breakfast and great location.

    Very poor parking facility, no air-condition was ridiculous especially in that heat (almost dangerous). The advertised TV/channels was poor, we had to reprogram the channels ourselves. No mini-fridge in rooms, no coffee setup in rooms.

    Friendly staff and cheap.

    Had to ask 4 times to get soap in our room. Breakfast average. Cold stuff was fine but the hot foods were awful.

    Beautiful building on outside, but need to invest money on inside. At breakfast there is a great variety of cheese, egg, omlette, cakes...etc. The hotel is located on the beach, close to everything.

    The furtnitures need changes or renewal.
