The hotel isn't a 3 star hotel and isn't worth the money. the only good thing is the location, but it's too noisy, too hot and very old, it needs urgent renovating and a more professional approach. the food is bad, too. If you are writing a paper about the former yugoslavian tourism 50 years ago, then this is the... More

To get it out of the way immediately: the hotel is old and it's noticeable. Ancient plumbing, old wardrobes, doors that remind me of my old school rooms... But it's as well kept as it can be. Those old bathrooms are spotlessly clean, bedsheets are whiter than white and the beds comfortable. We got the last empty room for our... More

We spend there a whole week in the of August and I have to say that I'm more than satisfied with the service. The hotel is a bit old but the staff, food and perfect location make up for that. People at the reception had a constant smile on their face and had always time for me and my never... More

Ok, so you do tend to expect levels of everything to be slightly lower and prices to be slightly higher than mainland venues due to the difficulty of an island location, still for a hotel claiming 3 stars there is far too much missing. Hotel location is very convenient being just a few hundred yards from the ferry drop off... More

Location of hotel is excellent because is near city beach and city center but far away from city noise.

Hotel Istra on the island of Rab has a very good location and friendly staff at the reception but that is all when it comes to positive sides. Hotel is rated 3* which is much higher than it deserves. I stayed there for summer holidays in August for 7 days and it was not the most pleasant stay. The room... More

It is situated in a perfect location. A short walk from the ferry, an even shorter walk to the bus station that can take you to all corners of the Island and back to the mainland. The hotel was clean and comfortable and the staff were friendly and very helpful. For the time of year we stayed it was great... More

+ Good, because on one minute you can be on the main square of Rab city, where programs and restaurants are. The rooms on the backside are relatively quiet. In front of the hotel from the port start all boats, water taxis. Every day was cleaning and tidying up. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Its possoble to sit... More

Me and my boyfriend were so excited about our vacation, but soon our happiness came down. We stayed in this hotel for 6 days, in a double-room with the extra bed and a parking view. We had halfboard. The room was actually terrible. Everything is old, the bed creaks, mattresses are disaster. We had a spinal pain in the morning.... More

Breakfast is enough, but not a great vary. Room is clean, simple (free wifi, bed+tv+cupboard, fan). Great location (close to the center; after 10-11pm it's quite). Staff is perfect (kind, multilanguage mode on - italian, german, french, english). Dinner is optional (choose from 4-5 options each day). Parking is optional (recommended; it's cheap)
