“A Bit of Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2005

There is nothing between this hotel and the Adriatic except a pedestrian promenade. When you walk into the lobby, it looks as if the hotel is built right on the sea. Walk out of the hotel and jump into the sea. The water here is very salty, and thus makes you very bouyant. Great swimming! My hotel room was clean, modern, spacious, airconditioned, had a BIG bathroom, and was inexpensive. I couldn't get a room on the seaside, but the cityside was lovely nonetheless. There are restaurants all along the promenade, as well as a short walk away in the town center. Food is good. Try the stuffed calamari almost anywhere. It's delicious! Give yourself two to three hours to eat dinner -- the pace is leisurely. The hotel breakfast is a typical Slovenian full breakfast: eggs, little weiners, cereals, juice, coffee, tea, lots of bread and spreads such as pate and honey, some fruit, tomatoes, ham, and lettuce. Buy a guidebook of Piran in the bookstore on the square. There's a lot to learn about this place. There's also a great jewelry store on the square that sells traditional handmade Slovenian and Yugoslavian silver jewelry.
