We stayed here for two nights in June and had a lovely time. Our room was in the main building and very spacious, with beautiful parquet floors and a nice view. The hotel staff was warm and friendly and the breakfast buffet was extensive and tasty. The only negative was the boats that ferry you from the hotel to Rovinj.... More

Peaceful island with no cars or any traffic, conveniently located 5 minutes away by boat from buzzing city of Rovinj. Hotel is old and undergoing partial renovation each year, so it's just getting better. Rooms have stunning views of Rovinj old city, and are spacious and comfortable, but with dated furniture - although this didn't ruin at all the positive... More

Accessed by a short boat ride from Rovinj, you arrive at the jetty below reception. Your luggage is taken by transport whilst you climb the grand staircase to check in. Reception is in a beautiful old villa with mosaic tiled floor and chandeliers. The grounds are stunning with immaculately kept flower beds and brick pathways winding their way around and... More

We stayed 2 nights here based on recommendations from friends who'd been there. It was exactly as we expected it. Old world charm. Not new. But clean. Bed was comfortable. Buffet breakfast and dinners were satisfying with a lot to choose from. No alcohol included though. The place is just amazing to look at. It does not have a wide... More

We stayed in hotel Katarina for 3 days and we had a blast. The staff at reception is very friendly and multilingual. The service in the restaurant is very nice and helpful. The breakfast was delicious! This hotel deserves more than 2 stars!

If you want to spend romantic, silent vacantions, you need to go in hotel Katarina and Rovinj. The hotel is situated on the island, 5-minute by boat from the town. Boat goes to island every hour. The staff are kind and well-mannered. We mentioned about our wedding when we booked room and after we were presented little gift to us.... More

One older and charming hotel with a good pool area. Our family room was clean and had one room with a bunk bed and a second room with a double bed, TV, air conditioning and mini fridge. The only thing that was negative was a cramped shower. The pool area has several pools and a children's section. If you want... More

Folks......this place is a score. Location is awesome. Island is serviced hourly by boat and only a few minutes to Rovinj. Staff is excellent and multi-lingual. Rooms have amazing views. Breakfast and dinner buffets were more than adequate. Pool bar and beach bar ( great lunch) where great. I don't care for screaming kids, so I was glad that exposure... More
