Its quite a while since I stayed here,but what a Fab Hotel. The staff couldnt do enough for you.The room was excellent,looking out across the bay,to the church in Rovinj. There was a good variety of food available,with an option to go a la carte.I keep promising myself that I will return,and it may be sooner than you think.

We were here for 2 weeks and LOVED it!!! We've previously visited Rovinj but not this hotel. We were a little concerned about the boat to and from the island and it did mean you had to think and plan when you were going into town or returning. It's worth upgrading to a superior room and I appreciated the small... More

If you want hotel accommodation in Rovinj this is a good choice. It is on an island, but unless you are partying late this has never been an issue for us. Rovinj is not a venue for all night parties anyway, more relaxed evenings eating and watching the world go by. There is a free boat service to the mainland... More

We stayed at this hotel for a week booked through Thompsons. The people on reception were very helpful and we were able to go straight to our room 1.5 hours prior to advised check in time. The room was clean and spacious, however the shower was very small. We stayed on half board basis, food was generally good, somewhat disappointed... More

The shuttle boat is driving up and down all the time so you don't have a problem reaching Rovinj at any time of day or night. The room was really great, really clean and well equipped. The only...
