“Good location, nice hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

The hotel is very nice - the rooms are clean and there was even a small mini bar in the room. The breakfast was your basic continental - but they will also cook eggs for you if you ask. I notice one review to be quite critical of the breakfast - I have to say that I do not agree - it was good, we had no complaints.
The location is great - literally steps away from the amphitheater. The staff was friendly and very helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

This is like coming home when you have been away for a long time. Your relatives meet you at the door, offers you smiles and coffee and a nice room with a wonderful bed. Next morning when you wake up, breakfast is ready and you feel at home and relaxed.

This is the real hotel luxury. We have been at the Spa Hotel where the Princess of Thailand like to spend her holidays and other luxury/design/posh-hotels and liked it. But Scaletta is in a division of itself. Its not the building and shining greatness, its the people and the small details that says that they care about YOU!

We love this hotel :-)

Great location next to the amphitheater but hard to find much else. We were there in the off season and found it hard to find a restaurant nearby. Free parking can be had right in front of hotel. The staff was very helpful and friendly.

I stayed in Scaletta for 5 nights as it was the only hotel available, the location was ok.
Breakfast was bad, a tiny stand at the bottom of the stairs, they served buns that were ok on monday and were hard by wednesday, water was displayed in a bottle, but it smelled of chlorine, so the one time I poured a glass of water from the bottle, I didn't drink it, guess they refilled the bottle from the tap.
The room smelled damp every evening when I got back, and the AC only kicked in at midnight, I was playing with the remote and trying to make it work, the ventilator would come on for 10 seconds then it would stop, however at around midnight it would start at full blast without stopping until morning when it would be freezing in the room...

I would recommend this hotel as a budget hotel, but it's not really a budget hotel when you look at the price... the price does in no way mirror what you get for your bucks in this hotel...

Room Tip: Will not visit again

A little tricky to find by car but a 3 minute walk to the amphitheatre. very clean room, comfortable bed, good reading lights, good breakfast. A women and her brother run the place and one of them is normally at reception. It was difficult to find a good restaurant in the area as they have reduced menus at this time of the year but lots of good pizza places. Good value for money.

Nice hotel in an excellent location close to the arena. Spotlessly clean, cood sized rooms. Free wifi and plenty of tv channels. Good breakfast with plenty of choice. Eggs cooked to order.
I had room 2 which was facing the road. This did lead to a bit of noise disturbance. The steps up to the hotel weren't really an issue but i didn't have much luggage.
I would stay here again.
I don't know why they use the hostel-bookers site for online booking. This is definitely a hotel not a hostel.

My boyfriend and I were in Pula for one night only and stayed in Hotel Scaletta as it was close to all the sights. The location is excellent, the Roman amphitheatre is a few steps down the road and the other sites are within walking distance. The hotel rooms are just standard, however the staff are very friendly and were very helpful with our requests.
