We stayed in this hotel in July, in the apartment building. Although the room was small when trying to open a travel cot for our youngest child, the room was new and the opportunity to have breakfast and dinner for an economic fee made a great difference to our holiday. The only comment would be that there was no place... More

While the hotel has been recently renovated, the rooms are still quite small and the common areas are lacking in ambiance. The hotel is at the beachfront but the area is not private and one must rent a beach chair. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, but the hotel lacked a nice area in which to have an afternoon/evening... More

Nice hotel, friendly waiters and reception. Close to the rocky beach. No service for umbrella and beds at the sea, but you can rent a bed for 25 kuna a day - best in the shade of the trees in the garden of the hotel. Breakfast really ok - maybe you will miss fresh fruits. Rooms with AC.

We expected an older type of place, and were pleasantly surprised at the modernity of the room furnishing and equipment. The room was a bit on the small size. Our room was with sea view, but the view was obscured by trees, which was a pity. The grounds of the hotel, extending to the sea itself, are very pleasing. Buffet... More

We stayed in hotel Kimen in August. The room was very clean and nice, although quite small. Staff was very friendly and professional. The only problem are Bicycles in the evening on the walkways, but this is not something that Hotel can fix. :)

We stayed in hotel Kimen in July. The room was very clean and nice, although quite small. Cleaning staff was very friendly and professional. This hotel however could benefit from a small swimming pool, at least for the kids. The beach is a bit strange, in between a walkway/bikeway and an area with pine trees and minigolf ground. It's not... More

This was a very pleasant surprise for us. We were aware of 2/3 star rating of the hotel and we chose depandance. It is two star rated - furniture is rather old and there is no air-con. We were staying on ground floor, which meant the room was never too hot and we had exit to the terrace - our... More

Clean, well-located, dog friendly hotel with a nice beachfront near Cres Town. Friendly, competent staff, decent food, with good value for money. I would recommend this for a family with children that doesn't mind large crowds during peak summer months. An alternative to using the beach in front of the hotel (which is very crowded in August, probably a result... More
