This is the only Hotel we hadn't booked in advance. We chose it based on The Lonely Planet review. We were traveling by car and needed parking. They offered us a Double Room with sea view for 140 Euros if we paid by Credit Card and 120 Euros ( about $160) if we paid cash. The room size was rather small for the price, but had a large balcony with table and chairs and a lovely view of the old town and the Adriatic. The bathroom is lovely and very clean, but only has a shower stall with telephone shower. All the other comparable Hotels we stayed at in Croatia, which were actually cheaper, had bathtubs. Also, the Staff would only leave one full roll of toilet tissue per day.
The Hotel is very nicely decorated and the bed was comfortable. There is steep staircase even to the first floor. There is a small service elevator, but it is not availble to guests. Someone helped us with our bags when we arrived, but there was no one to help when we left. At this price there should be Room Service, but it was not available.Therefore, it would be nice if there was a way to make tea or coffee in the room. When we tried to call reception there was usually no one there. We had to go downstairs to ask questions, etc. The Owner's daughter was extremely helpful & nice when she was there.
Breakfast is individually served and extremely generous. However, it would be better if tea and coffee was availble for guests to serve themselves. The Hotel restaurant is supposed to be very good, but we did not eat there.
The Wi-Fi is terrible. The TV is flat screen, but smaller than most we had on our trip. In addition, there is no pool or exercise room, etc. A little hard to get to because of one way streets. In addition, some of the signs to it are incorrecct. (Possibly a prank by someone.) We went past it twice because the Hotel sign is set back from the street and was obscured by plants.
