We stayed at this hotel for easter and we were pleasantly surprised when we saw the room. And the view was jaw dropping. The food was great too. The location is great. Right in front of the hotel is the beach witch is very nice and good for taking photos. The hotel is definitely worth the money.

From the outside it's quite impressive, although the front is flaking (but to be fair that's the case for almost all hotels in Opatija). The breakfast-room is beautiful as are the other larger rooms. It really has the charme of gone imperial days. The room I had, had a little balcony and was facing the sea. A small room, but... More

Stayed at this hotel for 6 nights and although it was reasonably priced that is about all it has going for it. Very old and not very clean. Bed and floor creaked with any movement. Bathroom was pretty bad with a dirty shower curtain. So small an area. Phone didn't work in the room and although it was mentioned on... More

The hotel is great with a beautiful breakfast room. The room was good too if just needed a upkeep. Cleaning was some days better than others. Rooms had no air conditioning, this was said on the reservation so my bad. But wouldn't book it again because of having no AC. People who work there are very kind!

cracking old building in Opatija charging a mere €35 a night B&B for a single, out of season. Dates from the 1890s or so but feels a lot like a communist block put up by Tito or whoever to house the plebs on free weekends to keep them quiet. Long wide corridors, enormous dining room, large buffet of traditional offerings... More

This hotel was nice, but not amazing. However, I asked for a room with a view, and they delivered! I had an impeccable view of the Sea, making the price definitely worth it! The breakfast was decent - better than most places I've stayed in Europe, and the location of the hotel is great. I found the front desk folks... More

We have just spent the first 2 days of our Croatia tour in this hotel, and it has been thoroughly enjoyable. We received a very personalized welcome by the receptionist - he reminded me that we had requested a quiet room, preferably with a sea view, and he confirmed he was able to provide both. This evening when we arrived... More

Lovely and old but still wonderfully nostalgic. The staff extremely helpful and polite. Wonderful large balcony overing looking the bay I would definitely return. After all the small rooms we have experience throughout Europe this was refreshing.

I was only staying for one night and wanted to test one of the old classic Opatija hotels. We got a good deal with half board included (Opatija is more expensive than other towns in Croatia though). I knew that the hotel wouldn't be renovated and up to date, but it was OK. We booked a room with balcony on... More
