The room alocated was stinking of cigarrette smoke and when the reception was informed, they put up their hands saying they could not do a thing! Any way since the hotel was convieniently placed to my office and the main street, I bought an air freshener and managed my stay there.

Had a short one night stay here. Best is the location, right in the center of Rijeka. I had a room on the top floor, with a sea view. The room was fine, but showing signs of wear and tear, although perfectly clean. It was lacking electrical outlets (had to unplug the lamp to charge my phone). Breakfast was OK... More

I was in Rijeka for business and spent a week in Bonavia. The hotel was absolutely ok. Absolute value for money offer. Clean enough, nice enough even with gym, pretty small one, but always empty. Breakfasts were more than ok with good choice of local teas. The hotel is placed in the very centre of the city: walking distance from... More

Spent a night at the hotel but had registered my home address with the police as is the law in Croatia if you are a tourist. The rooms are tired but the buffet for breakfast is good. On reporting to the police again the hotel had reported me and I was told I needed to report again to them after... More

Nice and charming hotel , proud of its 130 years of existence. Extremely clean, albeit a bit oldfashioned, very well maintained, very friendly staff. A hot water cattle and some coffe and tea could be added though... Still, the minibar is very much ok They could "touch" the rooms a bit too but I suppose they just want to preserve... More

The best thing about the hotel is the location in center of town. Also staff gave good recomendation for local non-touristy recommendation which was 10 minutes away by taxi which sort of negated location benefits. They said nearby restaurants didn't have as fresh local fish. Rooms were fine as was breakfast. Big problem I had was with Internet and I... More
