While I was booking my stay for September 24th by telephone, front desk employee was unprofessional asking me “What do you want? Are you taking it or no." However, I stayed for one night at Grand Hotel Dramalj. Check in was done by a men who clearly did not know the place very well. I got the room next to the street and it was horrible. Sure, it was clean but the noise! I could hear all the noise from upstairs (sounded like an elephant) and even all the discussions bybother guests in the yard. All and all a very noisy place. If you appreciate sleeping, don't stay here. The noise will keep you up all night. Not recommended.

Dear guest, thank You for leaving your review, so we can hear the good things, but also the bad ones, so we can work them out and never repeat them again. Unfortunatelly, as you said, the noise that sounded like an elephant is not one of the problems we could have solved, mainly because it didn't come anywhere from the property, but outside the property. As our front desk had explained to you, the noise that made you feel uncomfortable came from the upper street as you had seen yourself. We are sorry for the noise, but we couldn't stop our neigbours from building their house. As you made reservation to park view room,regarding your complaint we had offered a seaside room, which you had declined. Also, we are not familiar to any other noise which, as you explained, came from upstairs since the rooms upstairs were empty, meaning no guests in them. The constructional works took place till 5 pm, which was explained by the front desk, and as the floor above you was empty we find it hard to find the source of the noise that kept you up all night. The only source can be the cars that drive through the street, which is more random then often in the night hours. Apologies but we cannot inflence the street. We are also very sorry for thinking, as you wrote, that check in was done by a men who clearly didn't know the place very well. We whish you could have explained yourself more, since the lady who made check in and had talked to is from Dramalj and has been a part of our team for 15 years. We also find it diffcult to believe she was being rude to you, especially considering the fact you speak the same native language which makes your statement even more serious. Best regards, Grand hotel team

The hotel was very clean. The layout was interesting. The room was large and very quiet. The staff were very friendly here. Perhaps some of the friendliest of our whole trip! They have a breakfast buffet which is not grand, but a step above any continental breakfast you'd find in N America. They don't have a ton of parking spots, but it wasn't a problem for us going into shoulder season. They are a street crossing and a stairwell away from the Adriatic coast. The location is great!

We stayed in Grand Hotel , Dramalj for the 3rd time already . It’s located not on the 1st line but many rooms have an amazing sea view. The hotel is small and quiet. In the 2nd building (Vila Hilda) there is an elevator. The small food store (Komzum) is 5 min walk from the hotel. In front of the shop there is a “tourist train” stop to take you to the center of Cricvenitsa (main town in the area). The rooms are comfortable - light, fully set and “christal cleaned”. Bath and beach towels, slippers, hairdryer, safe... You can rent an apartment with a kitchen, all the necessary items provided (including rubbish bags, paper towels...). Sauna and the swimming pool are very useful when the weather is not so good. The staff is extremely friendly, almost all the people are the same from year to year , They are very much client-oriented, flexible, supportive. You have to go down to the beach, but anyway it’s not a long but good exercise. We would love to come back to this place next year again.

This is the 4 star Grand Hotel but it is not 4 star and certainly not grand. However, the lady on reception and check out was very friendly and helpful and the room was clean and breakfast adequate. The area itself was closed due to it being mid October.
