I have been coming to this hotel for 2 years in spring and autumn, when the place (Lovran and Opatija) gets more quiet and less crowded. I love the location with spectacular sea views from the balconies, I love their rich breakfast, which you can enjoy in the sunny terrace, and I also love the fact that the hotel is... More

Nice hotel in a beautiful spot, with a great view. To be a 3-star hotel we thought it was great value for money. Breakfast buffet had most of what we expect. Dinner buffet very priceworthy, 110 Kn including beer and wine. Friendly and helpful staff. A few steps down to the water. Also very close to shops and restaurants. We... More

Great location! Clean rooms. Amaizing view! Lovran is beautiful location for family vacation or romantic getaway. Lungomare is a path from Lovran to Opatija, and is amaizing. Love the place very much!

We stayed three nights and had a double bed room on the second level facing the main road and the hills. (I wished we had the sea views, but those rooms were already gone when we booked). The room was spacious with high ceilings. The TV was small and it didn't work but that didn't bother us too much. The... More

This hotel is a mixed bag. Beautiful old building located right on the sea but needs a facelift and parking is limited to the first 17 guests. The dining hall is majestic with terrace overlooking the water but it's also the only place you get any wifi and its intermittent. Buffet food is good, reasonably priced and includes all you...

No aircondition and fridge in the rooms. In very hot summer it is more than enough. Find a parking lot is impossible. The wifi is a joke! No wifi in the rooms on the 4th floor. It is cheating. Nobody says that you can access wifi only at special places. Free wifi is advertised. Bathtube is not working properly. Better... More
