We stayed at Hotel Istra for 2 weeks last September. Staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms were small but had everything that we needed. We would like to had a few more english speaking channels other than the news to keep me occupied whilst it rained. It did rain for couple of days and got quite cold in the evenings... More

Dear Reviewer, Many thanks for your kind words about your stay at hotel Istra last September. As it seems you were able to enjoy your time at our property even though you were not as fortunate to have sunny weather throughout your entire stay. Septembers in Istria are usually still pretty warm, and if the weather is nice, the temperature... More

An amazing hotel in a beautiful location! Set on an island near to the unspoilt town of Rovinj, it really is magnificent. You have to travel by boat to and from the island which doesn't take long and boat times are quite regular too. Hotel reception area is big and spacious and there's a nice bar. Breakfast is downstairs which... More

I've stayed at the Hotel Istra in October 2013 because of the dance weekend that kept place there. Because the hotel was full, they gave us a room in a building near the hotel, which was bran new. When we came into our room we were positively shocked, because it was a suite. With bedroom, living room, bathroom with both... More

We were at Hotel Istra on a summer vacation in 2013. It was perfect! Beautiful island, great, modern hotel with excellent location - only 15 minutes from Rovinj and tourist crowd, and still you have a peace, nature, beaches... We loved it! Room was small but with modern furniture, good bed and great view! We were very pleased with food... More

The location and setting of this hotel is excellent. The views going in and out of the town are amazing, particularly on an evening. The food at the hotel if ok, but nothing better than that. Definately worth getting the ferry across into the town on an evening.

The location is superb, peaceful and beautiful Our room was comfortable and the whole hotel was spotless. We also really enjoyed the town of Rovinj - a tiny,... More

My wife and I stayed here during our honeymoon. The island where the hotel is located is absolutely beautiful and smells of rosemary and lavender. The hotel is perfectly located on a secluded island just a few minuted outside of Rovinj by ferry. I would say that the hotel was excellent for Rovinj standards but just good for mine. Pros:... More

Stayed at the Istra for 2 weeks in September on a Thomson package. Stay started badly with a room mix up caused it seems by another guest with a surname starting with same letter - this was quickly sorted out with reception, but not before we had seen the rooms with a sea view, which are somewhat larger than the...
