“Good for short stay, no fuss hotel - Staff very friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

Stayed in this hotel for around 5 nights, it is great for very basic requirement of just needing somewhere to sleep. The reception staff are very very friendly and helpful and speak great English. The location of the Hotel is also great, near all the local shops and close to lovely ice cream shops and bars. I literally only came back to the hotel to sleep and would suggest this as a cheap accommodation if you are looking for the same without any frills. Only point i would mention is that i am not sure that they had a lift - not one that i saw anyway. It is quite a few stairs if not so if you need a lift make sure you double check with the staff beforehand.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2010

We stayed here on our way to Croatia and we only needed one night. We would have rather stayed at a b&b, but no one wanted to rent us a room for one night. We looked around at several other hotels, but they were more than what we wanted to pay for one night. So we landed on Hotel Istria. The owner was friendly the first time we walked in, but he was rude the second time we went back. He was not very friendly the rest of the time. We had a shared bathroom, which was cheaper. The bathroom was okay. It was clean and fine for a one night stay. Our room did have a sink in it. It wasn't furnished very much and didn't have a tv. It was also very small. Like I said in my title...it was a decent place for those who do not want to stay in hostels anymore, but can't really afford a nicer hotel, especially if it's only one night.

The hotel itself has a very low quality, but we were looking for a one night stay only, so we stayed there.
The room was small, but clean, bathroom was OK.
There was a huge problem: next day when we checked out they overcharged us by 9EUR! (We booked the room for cheaper, but we did not have any written evidence unfortunately, and the reception staff next day told that the price is higher that we were offered previous day.)
So: book via internet, or ask for a price list when you move in! otherwise it is an OK place for those travellers who do not have high expectations and just want a bed and shower for night.

  • Disliked — very noisy, they changed the price for the next day
