“Very noisy in the night + misunderstanding re. the price”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

we were looking for a place to spend our last night in Croatia close to Rijeka airport. we arrived around 21:30 to ask for a price. the lady at the reception didn't speak any English, so I tried to talk Russian / Croatian which worked fine at a basic level throughout our stay in Croatia. however the lady kept on speaking German to me which I don't speak a word of, so the process of finding out the price took longer than usual. after a while she wrote 110 on a paper for me which seemed like a fair price even per person, as we paid 150-250 kunes in private rooms, so we decided to stay.

i guess the hotel is built during the Jugoslavia-time, very typical 70s style Soviet-like hotel, however, well-maintained. rooms clean with good bedlinen and (almost) everything inside functioning. however, it had an unpleasant omnipresent hospital-like smell of old building inside the rooms. during the night it was quite cold and i woke up freezing, but didn't find any extra blankets. also, the note for the summer-time - there is no AC in the rooms so I Imagine it can get pretty hot.

around 4 a.m. we were waken up by some drunk German-speaking teenagers running around, shouting and banging the doors. they would calm down for a while but then start again every 10-15 minutes which was quite frustrating, as it made it impossible to sleep. at 5:50 when I heard a Hoover outside the door I finally got up and went to the reception. the hall was completely trashed: a large chunk of a cement corner was knocked out, there was soil and parts of the plans everywhere, flower-pots were all around the floor... and one teenager was trying to vacuum all that away. i went to the reception and talked to a guy there, who said it was some drunk guests and he was sorry but couldn't do anything about it. that seems strange to me. if he couldn't leave his duty to calm the guys down and he didn't care that the guests didn't get any sleep since 4 a.m., wouldn't he care that the property is being destroyed? wouldn't it be a good idea to call the police maybe?

not being able to sleep we went to breakfast which was rather poor, but I guess ok for a two-star hotel.

the next surprise was waiting for us at check-out. we were told that the price was 388 kunes. so we went to a long discussion with the receptionist about the price of 110 kunes that we were informed the night before. he said such prices don't exist and he had no idea why the receptionist the night before had written 110 for us. we said all we have left was 250 kunes and we were not going to pay anymore, cos if we had known that price, we would have never stayed there. it took us a while to persuade him to call her. after the conversation he kinda calmed down, re-registered us to a cheaper room category and took 252 kunes, apologizing for the mistake made by the receptionist the night before.

all in all - I think that in Croatia it doesn't make sense to stay in bigger hotels - there are private rooms for rent EVERYWHERE, in every small village, which are much cheaper and better-kept!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

It was actually better than most 2 stars hotels I stayed in. At first we received a room that had no balcony and was very small and had a smell of old furniture like it hadn' t been opened for years, although the panorama view was excellent. Then we noticed our toilet didn't flush so they imediately gave us another room (as it was late in the night). This one was more spacious, had a balcony, but still had some sort of smell, maybe from the cleaning lotions. Breakfast was typical continental, nothing much to say except the juices were horrible. As for the dinner, the food was pretty good, varied, every night we had something different (fish, chicken nuggets, fried or mashed potatoes, pasta, rice, etc), you could make your own salad (you had different type of vegetables, dressings, olive or sunflower oil,etc), as for the dessert the cakes were excellent, you also had yogurt, watermelon, pudding, fruit salad, etc The location it is good and bad at the same time. Good because it is very close to the beach and bad because it is so far away from any supermarkets (you have to walk about 15 min on a slope).

2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

Hotel is a part of larger complex, there's another hotel Adriartico next to it that does their check-in, not sure how can they operate them side by side as Primorka is really bad. Receptionist is shocking, haven't met one this grumpy for a long long time. Fair to say customer service is non-existent and would rather sleep on the beach just to avoid meeting her again. Rooms are bad, you won't get any sleep as there's no AC, they are tiny and stuffy. Breakfast were provided by hotel Adriartico too, that one seemed like better option as it was renewed and their staff were a bit more professional. However, there were masses of people at breakfast, probably from other hotels too, way over the dining rooms' capacity, hard to find a place to sit so not really a pleasant addition to already poor accommodation. Lucky we only stayed for one night.

Room Tip: Choose a room in a different hotel.

Travelled up from island hopping near Split and stayed here for one night with my girlfriend before our flight from Rijeka Airport. The proximity of the hotel to the airport is its only saving grace.
No air con in our room, not even a shower (just a bath tub) forget about a fridge or a TV.
The brick/stone promenade running beside the sea was pleasant enough if you ignore the gas refinery opposite which wasn't shown in any of the pictures. The one night we stayed was literally a nightmare and I'd strongly advise choosing somewhere else. The reception lady who met us in the Primorka actually grunted at me to show the direction of my room. The other staff however were lovely and helpful and of course paying £35 for a night with breakfast on the surface seems like great value but you can get much better for less in the area and I'd wouldn't stay here again even if this hotel paid ME

I was at this hotel in September 10. The hotel is a normal hotel for 2 stars nothing more to expect. It was quite, close to the sea (we even had a see view room which was great), rooms not to big, and services poor. They did not give us (me and my husband) a matrimonial bad, we had a double room with separated beds. On the other hand the food was excellent (we had breakfast and dinner included).
