“ok business hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014

I was in Rijeka for business and spent a week in Bonavia. The hotel was absolutely ok. Absolute value for money offer. Clean enough, nice enough even with gym, pretty small one, but always empty. Breakfasts were more than ok with good choice of local teas. The hotel is placed in the very centre of the city: walking distance from waterfront, market and many nice restaurants around.

Stayed there October 6th through 10th with my fiancee and her sister. This was the second time I have stayed at the Hotel Bonavia. Overall I always enjoy the hotel. Here are some pros and cons.

Pros - Great location. 2 minute walk to city centre. We had a top level room with a balcony that over looks the inlet bay - incredible view. I highly recommend it. The breakfast buffet is comes free with the reservation. It is by far the best hotel option in Rijeka.

Cons - Compared to some of the other hotels I have stayed in Europe I never perceive it to be a great value. It was 124 euro a night per room for 2 rooms. In Rome I stayed in a magnificent hotel for 110 euros per night. Next time I am in town I am considering going the Air BnB rout. If the hotel had more like competition it would not be able to get these rates as it is a little dated and needs a remodel. However, for now it is the best option in Rijeka.

Room Tip: If possible get a top level room with a balcony. The views of the inlet bay stunning.

I have spent one night on a business trip in Bonavia hotel. Single room was not too spacious, but bed was big enough. My room was on front side and was a bit noisy up to midnight. Room was very clean. Also service on check in and out was very fast and polite.
Hotel is located in hart of city, few meters away from main pedestrian zone, Korzo street. It is not a designer hotel, especially a breakfast room is a bit old fashion- with all chairs dressed in white. More important is that food served there is ok and everybody can find something to eat.
I had no time to use wellness and swimming pool, but it is also an option in this hotel.

Spent a night at the hotel but had registered my home address with the police as is the law in Croatia if you are a tourist. The rooms are tired but the buffet for breakfast is good. On reporting to the police again the hotel had reported me and I was told I needed to report again to them after staying at the hotel and was fined 500HRK for being an illigal immigrant !

The airconditioning wasnt cooling sufficiently.
there was no coffee/tea maker in the room.
housekeeping staff was good,efficient and polite.
most hotels place a fruit basket in the room on arrival but there was no such thing in Bonavia.
when i stayed here a few years ago the rooms were bigger and there was a platter of fruit and cookies in the room but this time nothing !!!

Nice and charming hotel , proud of its 130 years of existence. Extremely clean, albeit a bit oldfashioned, very well maintained, very friendly staff.
A hot water cattle and some coffe and tea could be added though...
Still, the minibar is very much ok
They could "touch" the rooms a bit too but I suppose they just want to preserve the history spirit ...
Overall impression is very good.
I would stay here again
