Excellent older-style hotel with harbor on one side, picturesque old town on the other. My third-floor room (there's an elevator) was amply furnished, quiet, and felt luxurious, though it cost less than $100. Personnel uniformly friendly. Hotel also has its own (somewhat cramped) parking lot; and there is an excellent restaurant on premises, with outside tables in a garden setting....

We loved our special room at Arbiana Hotel. We secured a great price due to off season travellers being few and far between. Good breakfast, great staff. Rob town was very quiet - we enjoyed a slow couple of days here

Breakfast includes: cereals, yogurt, fresh fruit, juices, coffee, teas, breads, rolls, several meat...

Perfect location in Old Town Rab that is within walking distance of everything! The staff were cheerful and helpful and patient. The rooms were classically decorated, clean and had a light and pleasant fragrance. We had a room with a long balcony stretching across the front of the hotel overlooking the picturesque marina. The restaurant on the patio under the...

Perfect location. Top notch staff, everything is taken care of up to a small detail (like our car, that was 3 layers deep in the parking lot the night before, was out and ready to go when we checked out).

Took the catamaran from Rijeka--and the hotel was steps from the landing. The Hotel is in the Old City, but distant from center and its loud noises. The hotel is beautiful and beautifully restored. It has a lovely private garden nestled between the harbor and the city walls. Friendly and efficient staff--kudos to Kristijan and Ivan.

Pros: great parking next to the hotel, very friendly team in general, especially the gentleman at the front desk, great location at the end of the old town and easily accessible. Cons: claustrophobic dated small and pitch dark room with supposedly city view, in fact view to the windows of another room and a passage, noisy until 2 am with...

Centrally located with views of the harbour entry. Pleasant staff and service. Good breakfast. Well equipped mini bar. Wifi was a bit slow. Overall I would recommend this hotel and would gladly stay there again.

Just got back from a couple of days stay on Rab Island. In general, Rab Island is quiet, family friendly and the locals are welcoming and not pushy like in many other Med destinations. Overall, highly recommended as a destination. With regard to the Arbiana hotel per se, it is a fine hotel and well managed. Some of the rooms...
