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.

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... More

Standing proudly at the end of seafront, newly renovated hotel Aribiana is the jewl of the island. With mesmerising sea view, great location, perfectly balanced wine list and brilliance of the young chef, Arbiana deserves highly recommendation.

Arbiana is just beautiful! Bringing the spirit of old times, distinguished by the great location, spacious, very well equipped rooms with a wonderful view, it is a place not to miss when in Rab. Be sure not to skip breakfast and try out food from the menu. Staff is kind and smart

This was by far the best hotel we stayed on our travels through Croatia!!! Amazingly friendly staff!!! Fantastic interior design, making you feel that holiday feel. Rooms were superbly comfortable. Even though we had to change from one room to another to extend our stay, the view from both rooms were fantastic!Nice breakfast too! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
