“Deja vu all over again”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

This place looks great from the outside with a great location for the local sites. Then there was the lady at reception that did not finish charm school. Up the very tiny elevator, down the hall to the room, and I literally thought that I was having a flashback to my first college dorm room. Small, cramped, rather cheaply furnished. The only saving grace from my college days is that the bathroom was in the same room. Of course there was the water that was coming up from the floor drain in the bath.
There was one unique feature. Using some kind of an upright portable space heater as a headboard for one of the beds was definitely different. And, while this is not a direct hotel issue, there was "Merishka" the small barking dog in the courtyard,(?) behind the hotel from 5 to 7:30am.
But, as they say, any port in a storm. Come to think of it, it was a dark and stormy night......

Room Tip: What ever you do, read the reviews.

after I had booked I had reservations after reading other reviews. I think most of them have been unfair. The Jadran offers honest down to earth value for money. I find it clean and the staff helpful and of course it is IN THE BEST LOCATION. Yes the breakfast isn't the greatest, but it does cater for all tastes. The bed is comfortable, linen changed on a daily basis and I would definitely come back

Room Tip: you need to ask for air con if you want it. I would definitely recommend it as can get noisy outsid...

Family of 4 booked two rooms in early January. Location can't be beat - right on the riviera and close to ferry terminal, restaurants, shops,etc... Rooms are small, cramped, cold and in need of serious upgrading. They are clean though. Walls are very thin and spent the night listening to snoring from the room next door.

Service was hit and miss. Night clerk was okay, but somewhat rude and dis-interested, but in the morning the woman at the desk was most helpful - even let us park free for the day while we took the ferry to one of the islands after we had checked out.

Breakfast (included) was alright. Had virtually everything one could want, but the waiter was more interested talking to other staff instead of ensuring guests were looked after.

Overall I would recommend for an overnight, mostly due to location alone. For anything longer there are much better options available.

The hotel is ideally located in the old town, where you will probably spend a lot of your time whilst in Sibenik. It is also only a couple minutes' walk from the bus depot, which makes it wasy to make your way from one coastal town to the other. For these reasons alone, I have rated it as "average". Otherwise, the hotel is reminiscent of a communist-era hotel; ugly and functional, no frills and very few smiles from staff. Having said that, it was clean and breakfast supplies were plentiful. Sibenik is the sort of place where you will spend most of your time outside your hotel room anyway.

Room Tip: Don't book this hotel if you're looking for creature comforts

Very little room, bad breakfast, very well located (the main quality), without internet, the parking is well paid, an uncongenial staff, old building with many needs of repair, but... is the unique hotel in the old town.

Room Tip: Try to have a front room. The back rooms are very claustrophobic without views.

The hotel is on the Riva within 5 minutes walk of the bus station and is located in the old town, so is ideal for those travelling by public transport.
My room was not over-large, perhaps almost cramped, with two single beds, two bedside tables, one chair, a suitcase stand and a chest-of-drawers on which there was an old-style tv. There was a large air-conditioning unit and separate radiator also taking up space. The toilet/bathroom off the entrance had a bath with shower over. I found it rather depressing to spend any length of time in the room.
Breakfast was from 07:00 to 10:00. There was as hot food scrambled egg and frankfurters, though they were not kept hot. Also there were cold meats, cheese, bread and yogurt. Breakfast provided was probably best feature of hotel.
Reception staff were not over-friendly and seemed to hark back to Communist times.
The hotel is adequate and functional, though not endearing. If there were another hotel on the Riva, I would stay there.
