We booked this hotel as part of a package holiday for our honeymoon, although the hotel needs updating a bit, our overall experience was amazing, sea front room with balcony, very clean hotel at all times bedding changed and room cleaned everyday. Staff are very friendly and there is a bar with free wifi and a beautiful little restaurant in... More

The experience of staying at this hotel for one night nearly made me want to leave Croatia. The rooms are tiny with nowhere to put two suitcases. The whole of the hotel is run down as they cannot afford to refurbish it. None of the rooms had plug sockets and so we were unable to recharge our mobiles except with... More

This hotel caught my eye on google earth search. Big pool, beach, view so we decided to get away from hostel types and stay.........Mistake ! This is a Eastern European package disaster. The place is run down 70's relic. Rooms are tiny, if you pay more for the view, which is fantastic, your room will be a furnace in the... More

Needs total look at again should pay guests to stay here! Food is horrible, room looks like pre-war. I am shocked by staff.'a English and knowledge of area is truly appalling. Sent me to a beach which was a few stones next to a road.

Once good hotel now is example of how things should not be run! Food is total disaster! Rooms are small and old furnished! Not to recommend to anyone! Try to find another accommodation because this one can be really party breaker in any way!

There was broken glass partition on the balcony, and the electrical sockets were broken. The entire hotel felt run down, not a Hotel for the British to go to. One good note, the staff were very friendly and helpful despite the condition of the place itself. My advice: Stay away.

I have spent 16 days at this hotel with my family. When you see this hotel for the first time, you have the impression that you are back in the 70's (of 20th century) when the communist regime governed the country (Ex Yugoslavia). The building is so large that it dominates the entrance of the Gulf of Stari Grad, and... More

hotel is simple, old fashioned, once may become a retro, it is simply furnished, but I totally disagree with all those excited "horrible" and "terrible" reviews. Hotel has a good location directly on the beach, beautiful Stari grad is reachable on foot via pleasant walk on promenade, nice views from the rooms, pool, terraces etc. Prices are very competitive. good...

This hotel is really really bad. I mean there is nowhere quite so bad to stay on the planet. The rooms are cramped, old fashioned(in a bad way), smelly and dangerously hot. There is no air conditioning anywhere in the hotel. The staff are rude. When we stayed there we had to keep the balcony door open as it was... More
