“Nice Hotel on the Sea in Rijeka”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

An upscale Best Western, but still in that genre. Few extras, but very clean, well maintained, comfortable. Balcony juts out over the water for a spectacular view of the islands and the coastline. Large full breakfast with fresh, tasty selections. Attentive, helpful, polite staff. Away from other hotels, so quieter. Close to malls and the center.

Room Tip: View is better on upper floors.

As with other reviewers, the spectacular aspect of this hotel is the views. We stayed here for our first night in Croatia. Also agree that the staff was helpful. We had rented a car at the airport. Thankfully, the rental agent escorted us to the hotel, otherwise it might have been difficult to find - noticed very few signs for the hotel enroute, and the available maps were not as detailed as we would have liked.

The main shopping complex is a short walking distance away, albeit uphill, and there are some restaurants there more reasonably priced than was the inhouse, virtually empty hotel restaurant, for dinner. The breakfast was acceptable if not overly extensive compared to other hotels.

This hotel is at least a half hour's walk from the city's more historic center.

Stayed here for 2 nights and wished it had been longer. This hotel is right on the edge of the sea and from its elevated position gives the most spectacular views over the Adriatic sea. A sea view room is a must. The hotel has been renovated to a very high standard and the staff are very helpful. There is limited parking but free if there is space.
The breakfast is excellent, the only disappointment being the coffee. All over Croatia the coffee is amazing and yet hotels seem to rely on industry coffee machines that you would find in a train station and the coffee is awful when a pot of filtered Croatian coffee would be the finishing touch to a great breakfast here.
Lovely hotel and a very short drive into Rijeka city - great place to stay.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

The vistas from our oceanfront room/balcony were simply spectacular. This hotel is situated right at ocean's edge. The room was very comfortable, though would have preferred a single bed to the one we had, which was 2 twins pushed together. The room oddly lacked a coffee/tea pot, usually available in a hotel of this quality. Though you can get a cup of coffee in the lobby, you have to pay for it! The weak link here is definitely the kitchen. The breakfast buffet (included), was ok, but not stand-out. Do not eat dinner here. The food was literally inedible. We were, gratefully, not charged. The meat had that dark taste/odor of something left over from last week's buffet. The staff were very kind and understanding. But this beautiful hotel is missing the boat by not bringing its restaurant up to par. Another oddity was that the lights were on maximum brightness at dinnertime, not exactly romantic. No candles on tables either. Again, with this million dollar view, this restaurant could potentially be fantastic. Free wifi internet was also nice. The wall radiator in the bathroom was nice for having a warm bathtowel.

Room Tip: Definitely get an oceanfront room.

I stayed in this hotel for one night in February in one of the superior rooms with a balcony overlooking the sea. And what a view I had!
The staff here are very friendly and helpful specially Zeljika the receptionist!
The hotel is clean with a great breakfast buffet. Unfortunately I only stayed for one night so I did not eat in the restaurant.
I will make sure to be back again in the summer.

Room Tip: Try to book a room with a sea view it is worth it!

I have been a regular customer for this hotel in every season, and the thing I like the most is the view from the room's balcony, very relaxing. I have never had the time to take a bath, but considering the position of the hotel, very close to the city and industrial plants, I do not think it would be a great idea. If you plan to stay in Rijeka for the beach, you better consider Opatija, some 10 km away.
Decent breakfast, simple rooms, great wifi service in almost all rooms, useful parking beside the hotel. The city center, quite nice after renovation, is not at walking distance.

This beautiful hotel has the Adriatic splashing up on its landscape. The rooms were clean and pleasant, but what made our vacation in Croatia was the staff at the front desk. They patiently and proudly answered our many questions about their homeland and hometown. We asked them in English, but they were fluent in many other languages as well. They also had a stash of some great beers for sale behind the counter!

Room Tip: The balcony is really OVER the sea
