“Great Value for money!”

This hotel is clean and staff is very friendly and helpful. We also enjoyed our food that was very good, great choices on buffet menu. Hotel is within walking distance to everything you might need!
We would definitely come back here!

Room Tip: Get the sea view room!

It's a cosy and friendly little hotel. The location is the best thing about it. Taking walks on the "lung mare" was very charming and full of beautiful sights. The view from the room was stunning and the sound of the sea very soothing. Good value for money in Opatija.

Room Tip: If carrying heavy lougage, ask for a room on lower floor.

The hotel lobby seems rich and expansive, giving the feel of a high quality, fancy hotel.
Sadly enough, the lobby is the only high quality part of this hotel.
The rooms are VERY small. To get to them you need to go down stairs, climb up stairs and only then do you reach an elevator that can take you to your floor. The rooms seem to be quite old and not well maintained and there is a bad odor in them.
The breakfast is also quite ordinary and unexciting.
In short - do yourself a favor and go elsewhere.

Very clean, excellent staff. Great position of the hotel. Food is very good. And Opatija is one of the most beautifull cities on the adriatic sea. By my opinion is more beautifull than Dubrovnik and Venecia. Also you have to go on a walk by lungo mare. Also you have a number of casinos

I found this WONDERFUL hotel to be to my liking! The staff were so helpful and willing to go that extra mile to help me with advice, money exchange rates and even a great sense of humor to go with it. The rooms had a great view of the beautiful Adriatic and my morning dip before breakfast made me feel resfreshed and ready for the whole of the day.
Great location! Great breakfast! Great for the kids!Fantastic holiday!
I will be back!!!

Room Tip: A view of the wonderful Adriatic will make you feel like a new person!

I had nice single room with a balcony and seaview. Clean. Good food, buffet style, Good choices of meat and fish.Good breakfast choices in the morning. The hotel is situated on the outside of Opatija on a busy road.At the back of the hotel is nice boulevard which brings you the main boulevard of Opatija.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea side room. refuse room at the streetside,
