Reviewed December 29, 2006

We stayed in Hotel Opatija in September 2006 and had a great time. We got a good deal through Easyjet, and the bus journey from Rjeka was really straight forward so this saved us an expensive taxi journey.
We thought the hotel was beautiful, our room had a lovely balcony and although it was reasonably basic there was no cheesy decor which was a bonus! We both have hectic jobs so enjoyed spending our days chilling on the platforms by the sea swimming and reading and there is also some excellent snorkelling. We saw absolutely loads of fish, we were surprised not to see more people snorkelling. Food and especially beer is very reasonably priced, but this is not the place to go if you want loud bars and clubbing! We went to Hemingways on a Saturday night to liven up our stay with some cocktails and listen to the DJ they have at the weekend. There is good pizza and pasta and excellent sea food, but if you tire of this why not catch a little boat round to Lovran and treat yourself to a posh meal at a very nice restaurant there?
For a lounging about total week'sbreak we couldn't have asked for more and would definitely go back.

This is a very nice budget hotel, which would have been very grand in its day. It is in need of a coat of paint but that adds to the charm. Everywhere is spotlessly clean and our room had a fantastic view over Opatija. The rooms are basic but clean and there is a good choice at breakfast. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

The hotel is very centrally located, we had no problems with parking but this could be a problem in July/August.

We have stayed in far worse 3* plus hotels, overall I would rate this as a very good value budget hotel and would certainly go back.


Opatija is a lovely town with plenty of bars, cafes and restuarants. If you get tired of pizza and spaghetti try the Istranka Restaurant for something different.

This hotel is very cheap and the rooms are fairly basic - ours was clean and everything worked, though no mini-bar. We had a room overlooking the town which was nice. Lovely sunrise.

From the outside and from the downstairs this hotel seems very grand, which is why i think people are disappointed with the rooms. They are standard 3* no better and certainly no worse than I have experienced elsewhere. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfy and there was lots of choice at breakfast.

Parking can be a bit of a nightmare though - there was a wedding reception in the bar / function room when we stayed, so we had to park round the back, but we were fine the next day. They were accomodating in the bar even with the reception going on and it was reasonable for the drinks. There are also some lovely little sitting areas too.

Opatija itself is fairly brash but quite cute and very friendly. Overall, I think this hotel is good value for money!

Stayed 2 days in a single room in Aug 2006.
This (like all singles) in the old wing of the hotel, and nothing has been done there since the 80s. Dark, cramped and worn down is the theme. But, it was clean at least.

Pros:

-Location, downtown Opatija and 50m from the Bus station
-Low price
-Good service

Cons:

-Cramped, old, worn down room
-No ventilation A/C in old part of hotel.

Check in is from 14 00. Staff are friendly eg contacted taxi firm on our behalf to confirm pick up.

The rooms are comfortable, clean with excellent air conditioning. No fridge and poor quality cable TV. The reception area and restaurant have no air conditioning. Rooms cleaned every day and to a high standard. Comfortable single beds.

Breakfast is continental style buffet - fresh bread served every 15 minutes. Hope you like scrambled eggs.

Location is central up some 50 metres from the beach. Be sure to have a sun bed booked by 09 30 or earlier. And expect a concrete lido style ie no sand beaches. Access to the sea is by steps or diving in.

A classy resort with excellent restaurants - loads of Austro Hungarian charm. More American than English tourists - although English is widely spoken. Fantastic sea-side walk through town and beyond.

A good value budget hotel

This hotel is nicely located. Parking can by tricky. Seems to be everywhere in Opatija. The staff were very helpful. But the rooms were mediocre. Good value though.
