Great location, spectacular view from the balcony of the room which was really big and well furnished. King-size beds, comfortable, pillows perfect. Bathroom and toilet are so good that I could thear sleep:). The hotel have a great coffee bar and an excellent restaurant with wonderful terace full of trees and a view of the city park.

We have just returned from a holiday in Rab where we stayed at this lovely hotel. Everything about it is special--the warm welcome from the staff, the perfect location overlooking the harbour, the spacious, comfortable room(ours had a long balcony with views over the garden and the harbour) and the cleanliness. The receptionists, particularly Ivana, were very helpful in suggesting... More

We stayed here recently for one night after a communication breakdown at Hotel Astoria saw us kicked out a day early on a Saturday afternoon (?!) and we were lucky to get their last room. Could not fault the hotel for location, sleep quality, beautiful/stylish furnishings, comfort and service. Staff were fantastic, wifi and aircon worked perfectly and our room... More

We stayed for a week in July 2014 and this hotel has to be highly recommended. Its wonderful position on the harbour affords great views from a sea front room of all boats coming and going.The fabric of the building is high quality with a great receptionist for whom nothing is too much trouble, from suggesting eating places (no evening...

Charming hotel with a beautiful view. Our room had two balconies and we could see the sea and the old town, too. The hotel is perfectly cleaned all the time and the staff is very friendly. Also the location is perfect - the old town walk starts directly as soon as you step out the back door of the reception

I have been returning to this hotel every time I go to Croatia (almost every year) and have used their outside terace at the coctail bar. I have nothing but the best to say about my experience with them. Food is fantastic, service great and ambient is to die for. I will be going there again in August this year... More

The hotel is very nice and the suites with view to the sea are great, some of them have a shared balcony but that is OK, you hardly see your neighbour. Ours had a tub but it didn' t work. The minibar was also available at fair prices. The breakfast is OK but could be better, the hotel is overrated... More

This hotel is situated in a prime location in the town of Rab. It's close to restaurants and cafes as well as taxi boats to the beaches. The staff is exceptionally helpful and kind. The rooms are very comfortable although bed did not meet the standard we expected (it wasn't comfortable). Breakfast, which is included, is fantastic. And, their restaurant,... More

We had the double room with sea view and terrace. Gorgeous room and bathroom. Huge space. Very clean and well maintained. Hallways are also nice. On the downside: Wi Fi weak to non existent. As if it is so difficult to put more routers and make sure signal is stronger... Light bulbs missing or burnt. Not to be expected in... More

Arbiana is the best choice in Rab in our opinion. It is situated in the old town, near the center with stores and restaurants. So if you plan to go out in the evening without the car it's perfect. Also it is at the end of the road after you enter the restricted area by the harbor. We had a... More
