We stayed in the hotel Istra 14 days ago, booked thru booking.com. We travel only for few days, to have a relaxed weekend by the sea. The hotel is old but clean. We had a room with balcony on top floor with a nice view to the open sea. Breakfast choice is very poor, the tables are not clean, the... More

Rooms, reception, pool, everything. On pictures seemed more better. The hotel is near centre but in a quite area. The stuff was not so helpful. In the room was no safe, no mini bar, ergo no cold drinks in 30°. Parking is terrible, the hotel has just a few parking place, the others has to on the street, you must... More

The hotel is terrible. Really. Just do go there. First- there's no parking. You can park in the street- and it's expansive. Second- the staff- they are just not nice, rude and very not welcoming! Bathroom- small, basic, broken toilet. Rooms- Very basic room, small and old tv (from 1992 or so), no air condition (and it's hot!!!!!), no fridge... More

Nice people, good service and hotell on the water. Try to get the room at ground floor they have terraces 10 meter over the water, they are spaceous and private. Rooms are old in style and worn down. The hotel lies very central but not in the center of Opatija. You reach the walk path that goes many miles along... More

This hotel was the highlight of our Croatia trip just because of the view. Ask for a room on the seaside, as it's just so worth it. We had a little balcony opening up overlooking the sea and it was just perfect. This was also probably one of the most reasonable night's we had cost wise for accommodation. The hotel... More

Great stuff, very good food but rooms are without air conditioning. All hotel is without it. Great outdoor swimming pool for kids, and hotel beach. Also, lack of parking space, just a few . Dinner was great, with lots of food and interesting choices ( some of them was local food ).
