Just near where the bus dropped us off from Pula was an accommodation agency so we went in only to find it was a homestay agency. Clearly we were not the first to make this mistake as the lady in the agency told us a bit about the local hotels and then kindly offered to keep our bags while we went in search of a room. We walked down to the Kvarner Hotel and, even though our guide book and other reviews on Tripadvisor were correct about old and no airconditioning, the hotel was so characterful and the staff were so friendly that we chose not to look anywhere else. There was also the added bonus of an outdoor swimming pool and a private "concrete beach". For our first night the room we were given was one of their biggest but at a standard rate so no complaints from us.
We moved rooms for the 2nd night, a floor higher and a smaller room with a tiny balcony. We could sit on the larger one but only stand out on this one.
It was ok with no aircon in June (we slept with the windows and doors open) but if it got much hotter it would have been too hot to be comfortable. There are no fans in the rooms, the decor is old, the furniture is old, the bathrooms nothing to write home about, everything including the plastic waterpaper bin was barcoded (a hangover from the past?) BUT the views are great and it was comfortable and you couldn’t help but keep imagine what it was like in it’s heyday. It was our first time on a concrete beach and best of all we didn't have to walk across the road. The loungers and umbrella cost to hire and you need to take your own drinks etc. After a while in the sun, you forget you are on concrete!
Breakfast was ok, good watermelon though. There is a supermarket across the road and a fridge in the room and it is easy to walk to lots of restaurants and the yacht club which was very nice for a drink on the terrace.
There is no wifi and there is a PC in the lobby – v expensive but seems to be a lot like this throughout Croatia.
We enjoyed our stay worn décor, heat and all!

the kvarner (ex "quarnero" in austro-hungarian and italian times) is probably the jewel of opatija/abbazia hotels in terms of history and tradition. its location right on the sea next a lush, large public garden and along the sea-shore walking track is unbeatable. hotel was built in the 1880s and it shows from it magnificent architecture and from the wide and majestic common spaces. the interior decoration is elegant in pink and light red tones with mock neoclassical furniture. my single room was not large, rather old-styled but with everything i needed and a functional bathroom. the magnificent restaurant offers a bland buffet style food with average service, reminiscent of some 1970s eastern europe. the covered swimming pool reminded me of some hospital atmosphere, with ice-cold water and didn't prove very inspiring. the open air pool instead, although rather small, is in a much nicer location within a garden between the hotel building and the sea. private hotel sun chairs along the sea shore (a cement slab: forget any sand) are available but at a cost, something deceived me a little bit considering the rather modest comfort offered. i would recommend this hotel especially for the wonderful view, large sea-terrace, beautiful architecture and history, less for its service and food. don't expect any 'modern' hotel: much of it is very old-style-europe, some of it has a rather eastern-europe feel. if you prefer a younger neighbourhood don't come in september when -i was told by hotel staff- many seniors from northern europe flock to this part of the world.

For people used to 4- or 5-star hotels, I can see why they would be disappointed with Hotel Kvarner. It's true that the furnishings were a little worn and I did detect a small tear in the bedspread. But for those (like me) who rarely stay in luxury hotels, Hotel Kvarner was a total treat.

There's not a lot of history in Opatija. It wasn't much more than a fishing village before it was turned into a playground/spa for the super-rich. As the oldest luxury hotel in town, Hotel Kvarner has as much history as you're going to get. Because they were here first, they also have the most superb location--in the middle of town, right on the sea, with splendid views. They don't build hotels like this anymore. Be sure to get a peek at the Crystal Ballroom.

But don't let the talk of faded glory convince you there are no ammenities: they have indoor and outdoor pools, a generous buffet breakfast, a reasonably helpful staff, and some very nice areas for guests to lounge and enjoy the view. Internet and room service are also available. Best of all, prices are very reasonable, within reach even of the budget-minded (if you're willing to splurge just a bit).

I stayed at the Hotel Kvarner for one night. My room was somewhat over the hill -- faded wallpaper, tired lampshades, a creaky wooden floor -- but it was very clean, the bed was comfortable, and the bathroom appears to have been remodeled sometime in the present century. I had a wonderful sea view from the balcony; didn't get a chance to try out the salt-water pool, but it looked inviting, and the gardens are attractive. The main rooms of the hotel exemplify Austro-Hungarian grandeur (the Crystal Ballroom is pretty amazing), but everything is a little worn and in need of freshening up. The hotel has a small parking lot, but it's nerve-racking to get in and out of (narrow driveways, small parking spaces). The location is good: lots of shops, restaurants, and cafes nearby, and the oceanfront promenade is a short walk away. The staff was friendly and responsive: one of my bedside lamps had a burned-out bulb, so I told the front desk, and it was changed within a few minutes. The breakfast was the usual stuff, but plentiful, and the dining room was sunny and pleasant. This was the first hotel built in Opatija (1884, I think) when it was being developed as a resort. In general, it's in pretty good shape, but with new wallpaper and paint, and some minor repairs, it could be outstanding. As it is, I felt that it was somewhat overpriced for its condition.

we stayed in villa amalia
first week had no view except tree's very dissapointed as we had booked room with bacony and sea view,went to see manager,but both hotel's full.so spent the first week in this room,but we were then upgraded to room with large balcony.
looking out to sea,it was so much better,staff were brilliant.
the room's do need a lot of work to bring up standed,the food was ok ish,we had to get to the dining room early as food got cold and also ran out.
the history behind these hotel's is fasinating,and to modernise,these would be a shame,they do need to do the elec, and plumbing's and decor ,these hotel's would not suit the young,who want a lot to do.
