“Awful - grotty & tired place.”
Reviewed August 11, 2010

Adequate for one night if you have nowhere else to go but grim. Forget getting any sleep as live music next door. Would have seen better days quite possibly as a bordello in 1900s - it just has that feel. If bad wallpaper, clunky furniture & yellowing wallpaper is your idea of ambience, great but basics
like TV was broken, bathroom v old & lumpy, possibly flea ridden mattresses - kept being bitten. Come here for great views of Kvaerner Gulf or come here to die (without the luxury of air conditioning). And yes parking is a problem but that is generally the case in Opatija town. Just do not come here with a 6 month old baby & a 2 yr old who are excellent travellers but this was a bit hard on us!
