“Fantastic location, fantastic breakfast, fantastic city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

Only bad thing I can think at all is no air condition so it's very hot in room during summer, and no TV.. breakfast is so good and so rich.. dreamy.. hotel has her own beach.. walk to center is near sea and 15-minutes far.. Opatija is so beautiful.. staff in hotel and people in all town n is very kind and friendly..

We travelled by motorbike parked right outside the front of the hotel no parking fee, very nice staff thought the half board option was good value especially free wine and beer. We loved our room 115 - 15ft balcony sea view great.

We visited the hotel last week it is a small family hotel with friendly people. The rooms are a bit old and not excellent I should say average. But the breakfast is exellent and the dinner as well, and best location in Opatija!
So we had a nice holiday over there !!!!!

Payed 75 euros for one night in this hotel that wasn't even worth 40 euros a night. I fell in love with the pictures on the booking site, but these pictures look nothing like the real condition of this hotel. Every piece of this hotel needs renovation, urgently. We could see electrical wires trough the ceiling while standing in the shower! The only pro is the lovely see view.

So I have to bias regarding this stay, since I spent 20 years of my life in Opatija. I have seen "Grand" hotel Belveder almost everyday, but never from inside. Now, for ones that do not know, this hotel was built in 1900 and not a lot of things have changed in long, long, long time. Including the staff; that is Old, Rude and completely not interested in their guests. I guess they are aware of the hotel's condition and they cannot believe they are actually selling it??!!
Hotel needs full top to bottom renovation. Holes in a wall are just "normal". NO A/C!!!! If you are there in summer this is a "no no". It was 80F at night and sleeping in those conditions is almost impossible. No TV in rooms. Amenities in rooms - oh sorry - What amenities???
Now, few good things.
Location. Very close to Trznica or Opatijski Mul (Harbour or Port). It is right on the beach. Although the beach needs some upgrades. Also, right next to Franz Josef "Lungomare". Walkway that goes from Volosko to Lovran. Very Very Beautiful!
Parking - it seams that there is plenty parking spots.
So.... Sad that I have to write this bad review. Hopefully someone will buy this gem and create beautiful boutique hotel. SO much potential!!!!

Room Tip: Sad to say but except location there is no reason to recommend this hotel.

My wife and I stayed in the main building with a room with sea view. As other reviewers have noted this is a hotel whose facilities are in something of a time-warp. The room was big and quite comfortable and although the temperature was in the 30sC it was not massively uncomfortable even without air-con. No tv in room, wi-fi in reception rooms only but still with a certain charm.
The breakfast buffet was excellent and for a price of around £54 for the room and breakfast represents value for money. Not bad!

Ever wondered how people lived with no basic commodities such as TV or air-con? Here´s your chance to find out. Make sure to bring thick book to entertain yourself. If you don´t have mosquito repellent, you might look defected the morning after.

On the bright side, the hotel has great position, polite staff and quite spacious rooms. Even the breakfast is satisfying enough. The interior is totally outdated. It might pass as shabby chic in the 80s, now it just looks sad and depressive. Funny detail: a glass of red wine in the bar served on a coffee cup. I´d rather stay with Flinstones than go back to Belvedere.
