Wonderful location in Rijeka. Nice staff, huge breakfast spread. Rooms can be small so if important to you select higher priced rooms. Was here in tough heat wave in high 90s... Room AC barely cooled but better than outside. Wireless worked fine ... Would definitely recommend for location and supportive staff.

Excellent location right in the middle of town with helpful staff and very friendly Cafe Ferrari at the front door. Very fast and free Wifi, delicious food and great value for money. However the place is let down by the rooms which, despite being spotlessly clean, were small and tired looking. My bath leaked and despite asking for it to... More

I stayed at Hotel Bonavia for 2 nights. Frankly speaking, the hotel is not so attractive at the first look by its out-of-date decoration, neither classic nor contemporary, just full of the early 1990s atmosphere. However, it's no doubt one of the best hotels in Rijeka once you have been at the open-air terrace in 7th floor where a great... More

We stayed for four nights and were given a great room with a beautiful view. Breakfast is delicious and so much variety, all the staff were very friendly and helpful. Excellent location can walk to main bus terminal in a few minutes and lots of shops, cafes and bars outside the hotel. Would definitely stay again.

My wife and I stayed here on 7th June while visiting Rijeka. The hotel is a 15 minute walk from the central train station and close to the town centre and the port area which is only five minutes walk away. We had a comfortable room and as we couldn’t see any local restaurants open on a Sunday night we... More

I stayed here for a week while on business. The Superior room was a great choice for a single traveler. Breakfast was included in the price of the room. It included eggs, ham, bacon, rolls and spreads, meats, cold cereal, fruit, yogurt, juice, and various pastries. Even though it was the same selection each day, I was able to eat... More

It was an extended weekend for us, kind a getaway. Very centrally located, Bonavia hotel was a perfect spot to explore the city. We had a clean and comfortable room, at the one the higher floors (recommendation), with the beautiful view. Listening the gentle sough of the locals having coffee in their bars, watching seagulls and enjoying cozy bed -... More

The hotel was quite old fashioned. The rooms were dark and traditional. I was only staying for one night but not all of my plug sockets worked and one set of lights didn't work. No sockets close to the bed. Bathroom was basic and a bit tatty and not perfectly clean. No iron or ironing board - can't even borrow... More

This hotel fails on every level. Expect to struggle up and down the front stairs with your luggage. Rooms tired and gloomy. The front desk staff are most unhelpful. We had arranged to pick up a car at the hotel. When it didn't arrive we asked for assistance. The woman on the desk said it was our problem. She failed... More

This hotel is simply the best in Rijeka and the only serious one with high standard. Perfectly located in the heart of the city,has a wifi connection and breakfast is included. Only problem is a small parking space in front of the hotel so if you are coming by car reserve hotel's parking space in advance. Prices are fair,they might... More
