“A great place to stay - very highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

The hotel certainly has a feeling of class about it - rooms are very spacious and of high quality, breakfast is excellent, and the staff are very friendly and do everything they can to be helpful. The pool is very pleasant but the hotel is only a short walk from the beach, which is where we spent more of our time. In the opposite direction, a pleasant stroll takes you to the old town which is beautiful and well-served by restaurants and bars.

All in all, this is a great place to go on holiday and very highly recommended.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front of the hotel which overlooks the pool to get more atmosphere in the even...

My wife and I really liked Hotel Arupinum. The hotel is located about 10 minute walk from the center of Rovinj, in a quiet neighborhood. A few blocks from the hotel there is a nice park with beach access. you can also rent bikes at the entrance of the park.
Rooms are comfortable and nicely decorated. Pool is very nice and relaxing in the chairs around the pool is great. Buffet breakfast is very good. Staff was very friendly and helpful with any questions.

I am happy we decided to stay at this hotel and trade between having to walk 10 min to the town and be in a nice place vs be in the town with not so much conform.

definitely will stay here again.

The hotel is situated away from the main tourist centre of Rovinj which is actually perfect as it means that you can return to a quiet and calm haven. It is only a short walk into the main town and likewise for the beach.

The hotel is carefully designed and has everything that you could need in your room (bar tea/coffee facilities but this is a particular niggle of mine in hotels!) The breakfast provided was brilliant- there have been some reviews stating that there were no healthy options but every morning there was plenty of fresh fruits and light breakfast choices. The daily pastries and cakes were delicious! We had one meal in the hotel which was superb and good value for money- especially in relation to the centre of rovinj where the quality is not as good.

The pool is lovely and sun loungers very comfortable. The only problem is that these can be in high demand and unfortunately some guests had done 'towel reserving' despite not using the lounger in the 4 hours we were by the pool! The hotel provides big fluffy robes which were nice for hanging by the pool in after a swim.

The bathroom was lovely and well equipped. The only down side was a strange sewage smell that came from the toilet during our stay. We enjoyed our stay, the only downside was on check out when they had problems with our card. We used this in other hotels and locations after and had an expensive phone call to the bank so it was clear that it was a problem on the hotel end. This meant we had to pay from another account which was not ideal and ended our stay there with quite a bit of stress. They also add service on to every drink you order by the pool.... when we had tried to tip we were told "don't worry I've already done it" ...we prefer to be able to decide how much we would like to tip based on service and weren't too keen on the assumption for just a drinks order. To be fair service was great and was happy to pay this for food. Despite this we would stay again but thought it would be helpful for others to know so they didn't have a surprise of a 20% service charge upon check out!

My review of hotel Arupinum is divided in different sections in order for the reader to easily evaluate whether my comments are relevant for his/her trip. We stayed 11 days which gives me reasonable good grounds for this review.

Location
The hotel is located slightly above the old city where the restaurants are situated. It takes you some 15 minutes to walk to the old city. The walk is pleasant. It takes you some 10 minutes to get to the beach area.

Parking
The hotel has some parking space outside the hotel as well as a garage. This is very good, since finding parking places in Rovinj may not be the easiest.

Standard
The standard of the hotel is excellent (and I do mean that). It is new and well designed. You will probably be surprised how elegant the hotel’s interior is. Internet connection is free and has an overall good quality in the room. The rooms are excellent. Especially the bath room is splendid. You will find every necessary item (of good quality) and both a bath and a shower. AC is working 24/7 and is great compared to many other hotels I have stayed in where AC can be kind of slow.

Breakfast
The restaurant (lunch and dinner) will be reviewed separately under Arupinum Restaurant. The breakfast is average or good depending on your preferences. In general, focus is on white bread and sugared items. I prefer some healthier alternatives, but opinions may vary from country to country.

Staff; front of house
"Biba" & co are starst and will do their outmost to make you feel welcome and are always prepared to deal with any issue that may occur.

Staff; cleaning
Very friendly and greeting you. Unusually nice compared with many other hotels.

Pool area
If you are travelling to Rovinj and would spend your days at the hotel's pool, then you may would like to know that there is a tree overshadowing some of the area where the sunbeds are situated. You can easily move around a bit and get sun between 11.00 - 17.30. Since the breakfast area is the same as the pool area, it is not easy to get any sun before 10.00. Should you prefer, which most of people seemed to do, to walk to the beach, this "problem" does not apply. - It is worth to point out that the sunbeds are really comfortable, much better than the standard you will usually find.

Services
The hotel has some services (laundry) etc which worked very well and to outmost satisfaction.

Summary
This is ceratinly not a "B&B" but a very good hotel where the staff tries their best to make your holiday a great one. Thanks for a lovely holiday!

New hotel with lovely rooms, lobby and great pool. The staff were very friendly. The restaurant is fabulous; great food and a lovely setting around the pool. Location is good as it is only a short walk to beach and to town. The breakfast was top notch. Would definitely return. This is a hotel not sure why it is located in B&B and Inn section.

Staff friendly, breakfast plentiful, rooms clean, pool cool, town nearby. Came here with family and in laws, we all loved it. We would certainly stay here again, in fact I hope we do! Everything about the place was perfect and the cleaners work very hard... if you are into dressing gowns the ones in the room are very soft!

Room Tip: Smile it is a happy place.
