Hotel Bor
Ranked #2 of 10 Hotels in Krk
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Stayed here 2 nights with a tour group. We had a big room with a spare single bed overlooking the next hotel's pool and ocean. Some of our other travel mates weren't so lucky and got really tiny rooms with a skylight and their ceiling is slanted cause of the roof, a few of them bumped their heads when getting out of bed.

Breakfast was pretty good, included bacon and eggs.

Hotel is a 7 min walk to the main town and seconds to the ocean.

It was pretty quiet in town towards end of September. I was surprised at how businesses make money.

Me and my mother visited Krk on a spontaneous adventure, and went hunting for accommodation. We wanted something close to the sea, as the sea was the main focus of the trip. Hotel Bor was one that had free spaces(this was the second week of September, so low season). The receptionist was very lovely, gave us options and even let us see the room before making a decision.
The room was small, but adequate, we had a view of the sea(ruined a little bit by a water slide of the next door hotel). We did wake up to the sea nonetheless. The room had wet walls and there was rust in the bathroom(plastic shower), but was kept clean and therefore these remarks came to us after 2 days of staying there.
We bought a breakfast package. Breakfast was nice, had everything we needed, but we had to get up at 8 to get good bread buns(it was served 8-10am). This was quite a small window, but as this is a relatively small hotel, it was sufficient. Juice was from sirup, not real fruit and I personally disliked the coffee, but that is completely a thing of taste.
It was extremely close to the beach, and we had a choice of 4 separate beaches in walking distance, so in this regard, it is ideally situated.
The lower rating is because, for a 2 bed room, we got charged a price for 2 rooms, basically. There were two of us in one room, but for the price we paid, we could have bought 2 separate rooms altogether.

All in all, the receptionist was extremely helpful and very thoughtful(asked us how our day went every time we came back, always greeted with a smile), breakfast was buffet style and had everything, room had sea view. A great 3 nights in Krk.

Stayed here end of May 2012. Parking is under large old Pine Trees, if the weather is rough the car is a mess next morning....ours was. The hotel is situated almost on the waters edge and caters for those with this bent, it is 5 minutes walk to the center of town. Multistory no lift, with stairs within the same level, not good for bag carrying visitors. Room clean enough basic but felt soulless. Dining area come bar is reminiscent of a bygone works canteen, staff friendly if a little rough. Individually cooked breakfast was a pleasant surprise and voted the best breakfast on our 8 week sojourn. OK for a night stopover.

The hotel is in a good location, but overshadowed by large hotels behind. In front of the hotel pine trees provide shade before the rocky shore and the sea. The rooms are small and the food was pretty standard. If it were not for the location the hotel would have little going for it. However you do not have to walk far to enjoy the beautiful coast and on the other direction to reach the old and very busy old town of Krk. Overall you would be better finding a good camping site and spending your money on a good meal!

We chose the Hotel Bor for location and price and were not disappointed. The hotel is a short walk along the coast form town and easy to access by car. It sits on the coast with about half the roos overlooking the coastline. To the front of the hotel, there is a open area shaded with pines and containing a trendy outdoor bar with relaxing couch-like seating and the rocky coast just on the other side. Though rocky, there are many "shelves" where people lay out to get sun and warm up from a swim in the ocean (described as "fresh" by the locals).
The building itself is very nice witha beautiful outside. Inside it is clean and comfortable with both inside and outside dining options. Though there are some things that could be updated (such as well worn carpeting), it does not detract from the experience. The rooms are comfortable and attractive with seemingly new furnishings. Some things that are normally provided in hotels, such as bathroom products, are missing, but it wasn't a problem as we usually bring some along and there are plenty of stores in town to get some if needed. We also took the breakfast option which was well stocked and did not disappoint.

We were incredibly happy with our stay and would come back to the Hotel Bor again when we return.

It is a magnificent place for holidays. Incredibly close to the sea, hidden in a natural pine forest on a modest downhill. A rich seaside carving gives a lot of privacy. Well this is Croatia so expect no sandy beaches but rocks, small rocks, tiny rocks, among huge rocks. This is no exception, although the spot is unique and probably the least crowded of the crowded places. Also it is very close to Krk center, 5 minutes distance.

The hotel is a good standard for Croatia. Small, cozy, with very friendly and engaged people. Runs a very very good restaurant. Could really have a bit better equipped rooms, but who stays indoors on vacations, right? Also it is affordable but not to cheap, so you find there a well balanced company and approach.

Please book directly, this way they save money on commission.

Ah, and beware in August: the whole Northern Croatia is FULL of Italian tourists.
