when arriving by train turn right and keep walking towards Rijeka harbor. stroll along the boulevard and keep straight close to the shore until you see the orange container terminal. cross the bridge until the tunnel. just before entering the tunnel you'll find steps which leads you directly up onto the Setaliste XIII road. turn right and after 250m hotel is on the right. with light luggage it was an easy 30-40min walk. staff speaks good english. I was informed about an upcoming wedding celebration right upon check in. my room was on the top floor (6th) with a balcony towards the sea. wow! very private on the sunny side with a view of a lifetime, however not recommended for people with fear of heights. the room itself is charmless but functional with a small flat screen (~30channels), coffee and tea and a small safe. breakfast was included in the room rate and was rich and of very good quality. the elevator can take you down right from your room to the private "beach" (towels at reception). it's all rocky and only safe when the sea is calm. actually not a place for kids under ~14 and not really inviting. you'll also find a few deck chairs for sunbathing, the water is refreshing and looks very clean. however I noticed people living in the building next door, throwing plastic bags filled with trash into the sea right next to me. even if they may drift away after some hours, what a disgrace! there was also a dog next door, which just couldn't stop barking. annoying! a large shopping center is within 10min walking from the hotel. turn right and cross the road after 100m at the crosswalk. take 100steps up the hill, cross another road and turn right after 50m. after another 100m you'll find the entrance on the left. here you'll find a large supermarket and good food options on the top floor. due to the disturbances of the wedding celebration, I was granted a late check out and a little discount on the room rate for one night.
