“Incredible place, amazing design and fantastic food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is our second year in Rovinj and both times we combined Monte Mulini and Lone. You cannot fault either. But now about Lone- loved everything about it, truly a design hotel, excellent staff and amazing food. Chef Priska Thuring thrilled us and exceeded expectations both last and this year and we absolutely loved the spa!
Considering it for New Years too! Highly recommended!

Lone is a great design Hotel. It is, however, not worth a five star rating due to some very annoying hotel "features":

* The Hotel Service is extremely slow in pretty much everything. It takes up to 20 minutes for drink orders to be taken at the restaurants. Room service takes ages to get to your room. Nobody is 100% sure what the hotel regulations permit and what not.
* The whole park in front of the hotel is literally _full_ with cars. Pedestrians cannot use the sidewalks, as there are cars parked over them, one is forced to walk over the road where cars are driving through.
* Dog fee is extremely high (25 Eur per night) in comparison to pretty much every hotel in the world.
* Wi-Fi speed is by far not the best (watching internet TV is simply not possible)
* Breakfast is very spartan — always the same with a very rough selection of meals. No selection of coffees.
* The room's carpet-floors are cleaned with some strange detergent that stinks for at least 3-4 hours after the room has been made.
* The so called "wellness" is actually a joke — no whirlpools, very small saunas and little space for post-sauna relaxing (I counted only a dozen seats). Also, WHAT ARE CHILDREN doing there?

Apart from the above this is a great design-hotel at a very nice location. Worth a solid four-star rating (not five, sorry).

Room Tip: Go for the Jazz Rooms or the Bay Suite.

Hotel Lone is siutated near the lovley old town of Rovinj, The hotel is in easy walking distace of the beach, and about half an hour from Rovinj. The hotel is very modern and stylish, the accomodation was excellent with spacious well equiped rooms, that were keepted in excellent order by the staff. The food was another story, breakfast was o.k with the usual selction of cerials and hot food, the evening meal was rubbish. Their was very little choice if you did not like the dish of the day, and if you like your food plain you will go hungry. We could not work out if they did not know what the were dooing, or they were on a very tight budget, perhaps thats why ther restaraunt was less that half full! My advice is to go B&B and eat out, Sergio's Pizza in Rovinj was excellent.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are nice but you may be disturbed by the disco from the adjacent hotel.

I've seen it many times - the owners name their hotel "design" but it's all a bunch of nonsense. Not this one, I must say I really liked how it is all wrapped up in a cute package. The rooms are lovely, spacious and clean with great details. The staff was very polite and the breakfast had everything you could possibly wish for.

Amazing hotel. Rooms are perfect, specially designed and every detail look great. We had a room with privat little jacuzzy on the balcony and it was a perfect atmosphere. Spa is great, nice spots to sit outside after saunas. Room service was amazing.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

We saw the title line on a bag sold in the hotel, which we thought summed up Hotel Lone quite well. It is a pretty new hotel, rooms are big, modern, clean and have nice private terraces. The bathroom is also nice & modern, but we couldn't get over the fact that there is a huge glass window that doesn't allow any privacy in the bathroom. We needed to cover the window with a blanket. Whoever designed that is either a total voyeur, or hasn't thought this through. (Bathing- potentially shared & sexy. Toilets- not so much.) Breakfast was wonderful, huge selection of almost everything. Pool is big, but is shared with Hotel Eden, which wasn't a problem for us in the off-season. Parking is chaotic and definitely not 5 star (see title line). You can park your car anywhere outside, although not legal. Notes on the windshield reiterate this fact, but apparently there is nowhere else to park as hotel staff told us to "just park anywhere." Odd. The town itself is a nice 20 minute walk along the watersedge, which we enjoyed. The spa area in the hotel is also very nice. One last oddity of Hotel Lone (and perhaps it was due to a Sept. visit) was that the hotel seemed to cater to buisness people (large meeting happening while we were there) as well as vacationers equally. This feels a bit schizophrenic as a guest, since the vibe is not clearly one or the other. For a long weekend, it was hard to lose the work mentality and relax with business people lurking everywhere-- and on the weekend, too.
