Although my friend and I just had a one night stay here, before flying home the following day, we wished that we could have stayed longer. Hotel Niko is a small, classy, family run hotel and, without doubt, it was the best hotel that we stayed in during our trip. Hotel Niko was quite easy to find, with signs for many of the hotels, including Hotel Niko, being posted alongside the main roads. Once at the hotel, there was sufficient parking and we were able to park in the hotel’s own car park, directly in front of the hotel. Check-in was straightforward and quick, although not nearly as quick as the man who whisked away the luggage to our room – no hanging around for tips here!
The rooms are so elegant and the bed was indescribably comfortable, with top quality bed linen. I would love to say that I had a brilliant night’s sleep but, unfortunately, this was not the case. Although I dropped off almost immediately, I was woken by brilliant light shining around the room. Through my sleepy haze, I established the culprit to be the television which somehow had managed to turn on without human assistance! The bathroom was of a good size with a powerful shower and plenty of hot water. One point worth mentioning, too, is the luxurious quality of the toilet tissue which appeared to be very lightly perfumed and was of a thickness and softness not seen for years! Breakfast was a feast that was served at the table. Watching the trolleys, laden with freshly prepared food, being pushed around the restaurant was reminiscent of a bygone era especially as so many hotels now opt for the modern buffet-style breakfast. I would say that helpful staff and top quality customer service are the trademarks of this hotel and, from check-in to check-out, the staff were faultless. Perhaps the only slight disappointment was the lack of a tea and coffee making facility in the room although, again, staff were quick to assist and brought boiling water and complimentary milk into our room (we had our own supplies of tea and coffee).
As noted in other reviews, smoking is permitted in the dining room and this is quite off-putting. However, from my own observations during this trip, this does seem to be the case across Croatia generally. That aside, Hotel Niko is a truly wonderful establishment with a superb staff for whom nothing is too much trouble. All in all, I loved Hotel Niko and would definitely stay again, should I return to Zadar.
