The hotel is very well located, in the Verudela "resort" area, shared with some more other hotels of the same company. It's surroundings are beautiful and very quiet. You can hear the birds singing every time. The room was quite small and you can tell the hotel has a few years, but it was clean and was comfortable. I asked for a double bed, but they reserved me two single beds, and when I asked to change rooms, they said it would cost an extra 4 euros/pax. It was end of June but it was already quite hot, so the AC would have been handy. Since they don't have AC in bedrooms, we slept with the window open and it was ok. The restaurant is quite good. The employers made two mistakes with the change, but because one was at my favour and the other against, I truly believe it wasn't on purpose. The beach is really close, even though we have decided to walk an extra 5 minutes to go to the bigger one (on the Hotel Brioni side) We didn't had a car but the public transport are very efficient and not expensive. We took a shuttle from the airport to the bus station and from there the regular bus to hotel - city centre. The pool is very nice, with salted water. Don't miss the sunset there, it is really beautiful. I would recommend this hotel, and it is a very good value for money.
