I stayed at the Hotel Katarina in June of 2014. I had a lovely room with a balcony that had a beautiful view of Rovinj. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. There was refrigerator in the room as well. Breakfast was a buffet with a lot of good options and I ate dinner at the hotel one... More

We were slightly nervous on booking as the hotel only had 2 stars. We needn't have worried as it surpassed our expectations greatly. There was a bit of confusion about which boat we had to catch to get to Katarina but once there we were quickly checked in by efficient reception staff and found our way up to our room.... More

Located on a small island right next to Rovinj. The ferry takes you to and from the island every hour. The hotel has four star potential and they appear to be continuously working to improve. Our room was good size with a patio that overlooked the Adriatic Sea and Rovinj. Our reservation halfboard) include both breakfast and dinner. Large pool... More

For those who are looking for something special, romantic and authentic, for their holidays in Croatia, this hotel is definitely a must. Located on a little island at 300 meters from the continent, the Katarina hotel offers an outstanding panorama on the most beautiful town of Istria: Rovinj. Based on that, hard to believe that it is only a two... More

Great hotel, excelent location. Location is realy fantastic, on a small island very near to city of Rovinj (about 200 meters). Rooms are clean, not luxury, but much better than 2 stars. I think that only thing because this hotele received (only) 2 stars is lack of aircondition in some rooms and lack of parking (which is normal because hotel... More

I stayed here with my Girlfriend and we were slightly nervous due to some of the posts on this website, however we had a great time. The setting is truly amazing, looking back at the beautiful town of Rovinj on one side and out to sea on the other. The pool area I though was fantastic, 2 large pools and... More

We found the hotel randomly. I really liked the island and the view ( directly at the old city centre of Rovinj), especially in the evening ( there was a life music playing in the bar next to the sea- kind of romantic atmosphere.) The hotel was decent a bit overpriced I would say, the rooms certainly demand some reconstruction.... More

Had reservations in both senses ahead of my trip to Katarina. Seeing the mixed reviews and having gone to 2 star hotels before but my worries were soon put to bed. The room was nice and clean. Breakfast was fine, nothing special but I can only assume that it's vastly improved since the last reviewers visited. Most of the staff... More

Good - spacious interconnecting rooms with bunk beds for the children, wonderful views, clean rooms. The hotel is 2 star I would guess as it doesn't have aircon - we found fans were fine although may be a problem if any hotter. Lovely pools with no fighting for sun beds even in august. Fabulous location. Not so good - nothing... More
