I've never write any review, but for this hotel I must! This is the worst hotel where I stayed!!!! Rooms are from 1965 or even older, it's dirty, no air conditioner, couldn't get wi-fi to work, staff is unpleasant, food is really bad... I can't say anything good about this hotel except that there is nice park, nice taxi boats... More

I am recommending hotel Istra to all. Central location, where action is and at the same time very quiet and with morning view of small harbor and sunrise. Parking is available, drop your bags in front the entrance. The STAFF is the BEST, very very friendly, knowledgeable, ready to recommend the best and affordable place for dining, boat rental, other......... More

We were her for the first time, and I really have to admit that it was very nice vacation. I have prepared my boyfriend on the accommodation, because the lady in agency told me that rooms are little smaller than usual and that the hotel isn't classic 3 star hotel. When we arrived, we were both surprised. Receptionist were very... More

I was here last year with my boyfriend. We are in our 20ies, and what we expect from hotel are clean rooms, internet connection and good food. I can say that we were not disappointed! Actually, I was quite surprised when we arrived, because hotel is on great location. True, rooms are quite small, but you only need them to... More

I stayed two nights with my girlfriend last August. In a nutshell: rooms are small and poorly furnished. Same applies to bathrooms. Further, there's no air con and Croatian summers are very hot. Luckly, we were given a fan, and this at least allowed us to sleep. We also had dinner at the restaurant and food is just ok. If... More

This is a very unpleasant hotel, to the degree that I fear it may have scarred our recent visit to Croatia. There is nothing positive to say about it. From the moment we walked through the door we were greeted by unpleasant and rude staff. The rooms are small - fair enough - but lack lack basic amenities such as... More

We arrived in Rab on a stinking hot day and were checked into what was supposed to be a sea view room. What this meant was that you had to put your head out the window and look to the right for the view of the marina and the water in the distance. We were told that if we had... More

Me and my wife booked 2 nights in this hotel at the price of £100 a night in July 2011. Initially the staff was nice. The problem started when we went to eat a dinner on our first night. At the reception we were told we can have 4 choices of the dinner choosing between meat/vegetarian/fish. When we sat at... More

read a review on this site which talked about a great place for a romantic get-away...Very true! Once i got over the small size of the room based on American standards...getting a room with balcony is a MUST...we spent most of our time in the room on the balcony or in bed...we had a balcony that overlooked the marina right...
