The hotel is pretty much average in every way. Rooms are new and clean but small. The "seaview" is more like parking lot view with the sea in the distance. Bed was hard and staff were nice but didn't always seem to know what they were doing. Food at the restaurant was also average. if you want to stay right in Pula it's an okay choice but maybe a little pricy for what you get.

We visited Pula for a conference in May, for which accommodations were spread throughout the area. There are more elaborate hotels, but for our needs, the Amfiteatar most fit the bill. It is true, the hotel would avoid many complaints by describing the view more accurately. We stayed in a room with a "seaview" for six days, and then in a room on the top floor which had no window, simply a skylight. "Seaview" is an exaggeration of what one sees from the front side of the building. Even so, it definitely beats "no view." But one can walk across the street to a pleasant little park, and if and when the screens from the construction on the beach come down, it will be easy to experience the sea up close and personal.
That said, the hotel is very clean, the staff delightful, and the outdoor restaurant is first rate. Truffles abound in this area - and the restaurant has a delicious truffled pasta at a price that would be hard to find in most places. The breakfast was good, though choices were limited. Bananas go fast! The wifi problem might be disturbing if it is essential. It was not available on our floor the entire time we were there, but people could access the internet in the lobby. In an emergency the computer at the desk could be used, but the staff could not always do without it. But these are minor matters. How often can you walk out your door and see a glorious Roman amphitheater a block away? And then wander in the opposite direction among other Roman ruins in a jewel-like setting. Can't wait to return!

We stayed at the Amfiteatar Hotel for two nights in Pula, bookending our tour of Istria.

The first night we were assigned to a room on the small side but entirely adequate for going to sleep and waking up. We were given a wifi code - wifi worked poorly in the room but was fine in the lobby, so I toted the computer downstairs when I needed to do work. The bathroom had good water pressure, the room was clean.

When we returned at the end of our trip, we were given a room on the 3rd floor with skylight style loft windows (nice decorative touch, woken EARLY in the morning by the streaming light) and with a defective shower. The bathroom and bedroom carpet ended up soaking wet, but it wasn't a huge nuisance. The wifi worked better in this room.

The rooms were quiet, the continental breakfast very extensive, and the hotel in general quite modern and attractive. We were given a passcode for the front door to enter/exit during off hours - the code did not work, unfortunately, and I ended up stranded outside the hotel early one morning after a sunrise stroll (wasn't kidding about the skylights!) until a staff member came to my rescue. The front desk is not staffed 24 hours/day.

Its a very nice hotel - its just not an excellent hotel. The location is fine, the rooms were clean and I would recommend it for short stays. It just needs a little tweeking.

We visited croatia for 10 days, flying into dubrovnik, busing to split, and driving from split from split to Istria--Motovon, Rovinj, and Pula and visiting small towns enroute, and busing to Venice from Pula., see prior reviews for motovon and rovinj and tips. This hotel is less than a year old, sleek and modern, with art decoish style rooms and decor, wifi, an elevator,and a roomrefrigerator. The restaurant is said to be one of the best in PUla-we had a coffee on the patio and ate at a pleasant small konoba in the old town, ?Orfige?,a 7 minute walk from the hotel . The amphitheatre, is as well preserved as Rome but smaller, is 50 steps away and the old town, as noted, is a few blocks. Pula is worth a visit for the coliseum. We needed to overnite there to return our Avis car and get the 510am bus to Venice that stops in front of the .amphitheatre, But for this fact, we would have stayed in more charming Rovinj a 3rd night.

A small, but truly GREAT hotel in Pula, Croatia.
The Amfiteater is located in the center, right next to Pulas biggest attraction - the beautiful Arena.

This hotel has very modern rooms, great condition. And CLEAN.
The food is amazing, EVERYTHING we tried at the hotel restaurant was delicious, and I highly recommend the cakes.. especially the chocolate cake - mmmmmmm it is by far the best cake I've ever tried in my life. The chef is so good. And the cakes are hotel made.

The service at the hotel was excellent, the waitors are highly proffesional yet genuinly sweet, warm and friendly - and go their way about to make your stay pleasant and memorable.

The hotel has an outside restaurant and area, where you can relax with drinks, foods and is perfect for smokers as you can chill out there mornings and evenings... PERFECT!

I highly recommend it - and the rumours has it that is the nicest (if not the only nice) hotel in Pula. Brand new and plain awesome!!

Also make sure to visit a dining place called "Kod Kadre" if you're visiting Pula.. he has the classic traditional Yugoslavian meals - such as cevapcici and pljeskavice.. do try the cevapcici for a truly heavenly meal! Cheers and Enjoy!
