Location is fantastic, but hotel was not clean (lots of stuff under bed, on rug). Pipes showing thru the ceilings, bathroom hot water literally took about 5 minutes to get hot (really thought there was no hot water). Smallest shampoo/soap packet I've ever seen. Towels paper thin. I rarely knock a place, but this didn't deserve 1/2 star. That being... More

This hotel is located in a great location. The main Promenade is very close. Rooms were very small but clean. There was no WIFI available in room. Was barely able to get it in public areas. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good nothing to complain about. We always had lunch and dinner in town. There is a... More

Me and my friends randomly landed in this gorgeous town and couldn't have left happier. It's the perfect place to sit back and relax for a while (not a beach party town, though you can find a little bit of nightlife if you look properly). This hotel was very close to everything and the people are extremely nice, we got... More

The location is good, next to the see and some hunderd meters to the main beach. The rooms are not big, but ok for holiday stay. No air condition, but an electric fan in the room which changed the air quite well when placed by the open balcony door. Street side rooms can be noisy, earplugs are necessary for good... More

Stayed here for one night during my vacation. Location is great - hotel is located near everything you need. Girl on the reception was very polite and nice. My room was too simple, but had great view! Summa summarum, it's ok experience for that amount of money. :)

Upon arrival I thought oh no, this is not good! An old and quite plain art deco hotel that hasn't had any money spent on it for years. 70's furniture that is a bit shabby and tatty. Old carpets. Noisey plumbing. No air conditioning! I know I should have noticed the missing air con when we booked, but I just... More

We stayed there because it was cheap and had swimming from the sea front. It is a package hotel for Russians. The other hotels next door in the same hotel group were equally poor

I booked in for a couple of days with IGOR at reception and was assured of a comfortable stay and then it all went down hill, no car parking on site only in the road about 0 .5 km away at 5 kuna an hour, I asked IGOR ( who was devoid of humour) for some 5 Kuna coins to... More

Adequate for one night if you have nowhere else to go but grim. Forget getting any sleep as live music next door. Would have seen better days quite possibly as a bordello in 1900s - it just has that feel. If bad wallpaper, clunky furniture & yellowing wallpaper is your idea of ambience, great but basics like TV was broken,... More
