We are a middle aged couple who have just spent a week in Opatija at the Sveti Jakov. This is a lovely hotel full of old splendour and character. The location is perfect for lounging by the sea or visiting the shops and restaurants, or a perfect stroll along the longemara, a lovely promenade walk for calling in at the...

It is nice boutique hotel, in very heart of Opatija, so location is perfect. I expected more from room, it was quite dusty (cobwebs on the ceiling), TV remote did not work and WiFi connection could be improved. Rooms looking at main road could be noisy from traffic. All in all, room is spacious and bed was very comfortable. Personnel...

In short: we enjoyed our stay. The location is probably the strongest point here, as you are just a short walk away from the city beach and other major spots. The room is equipped with dark furniture, what is normally described as 'traditional', and that is not what we frequently see in the hotels we choose to stay with (we...

This is a really nice hotel with perfect location situated in the city center. Both the exterior and the interior of the hotel are very nice and romantic.

We loved our stay here. Right near the beach in a lovely park. The staff and breakfasts were excellent. The rooms were air conditioned which was a definite plus. I also had a bath tub which I covet when I am in Europe.

For my one night in Opatija I wanted a central location and a traditional property with charm and ambiance. Sv. Jacov fit the description of a boutique hotel in a country house setting with its surrounding garden. Yes. The building itself has the appearance of a lovely country mansion. The first impression is reception. A high ceilinged medium sized room...

First off this is a great location in Croatia. I'm visiting in October so it is more quiet than summer so that is also important. Beautiful room #16 with a balcony, large room, bathroom, sitting area and again the fantastic balcony. And what's important to me that it is free wifi and a STRONG signal. Great staff, beautiful dining room...
