We stayed at the Hotel Imperial as a three day add-on to a Kvarner Islands cruise. This was the 3 star option that we were allocated on arrival. We chose not to pay the extra for 4 star as we have stayed in many comfortable and well equipped 3 star hotels over the years and assumed that this would be... More

One of the many, large and oldtimey hotels in Opatija. The dining hall is very large with several tables with different foods. There is little change throughout the week, but it's served hot and the bowls/plates never stay empty for long. The staff takes dirty plates away quite fast. We arrived pretty late in the evening and there was a... More

On arrival car parking was an issue as all hotels do not offer free parking, 09:00 ~ 19:00hrs you are charged everyday. If you are lucky you can park in hotel grounds but you are charged a daily fee 75kuna. We were allocated room 112 a sea view standard room. This room was very dated with old damaged furniture, carpet... More

We stayed at this hotel for easter and we were pleasantly surprised when we saw the room. And the view was jaw dropping. The food was great too. The location is great. Right in front of the hotel is the beach witch is very nice and good for taking photos. The hotel is definitely worth the money.

From the outside it's quite impressive, although the front is flaking (but to be fair that's the case for almost all hotels in Opatija). The breakfast-room is beautiful as are the other larger rooms. It really has the charme of gone imperial days. The room I had, had a little balcony and was facing the sea. A small room, but... More

Stayed at this hotel for 6 nights and although it was reasonably priced that is about all it has going for it. Very old and not very clean. Bed and floor creaked with any movement. Bathroom was pretty bad with a dirty shower curtain. So small an area. Phone didn't work in the room and although it was mentioned on... More

The hotel is great with a beautiful breakfast room. The room was good too if just needed a upkeep. Cleaning was some days better than others. Rooms had no air conditioning, this was said on the reservation so my bad. But wouldn't book it again because of having no AC. People who work there are very kind!

cracking old building in Opatija charging a mere €35 a night B&B for a single, out of season. Dates from the 1890s or so but feels a lot like a communist block put up by Tito or whoever to house the plebs on free weekends to keep them quiet. Long wide corridors, enormous dining room, large buffet of traditional offerings... More

This hotel was nice, but not amazing. However, I asked for a room with a view, and they delivered! I had an impeccable view of the Sea, making the price definitely worth it! The breakfast was decent - better than most places I've stayed in Europe, and the location of the hotel is great. I found the front desk folks... More
