“Nice for what it is, but do not expect charm.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2010

Rijeka expectedly lacks the charm and small-scale of Istrian towns. Mirroring this is this hotel. It's nice and its restaurant is pleasant bit of nouvelle cuisine a la Croatia, but the rest of the hotel has a bit of a utilitarian quality to it (even if nicely polished 'utilitarian'). But I think that's nice enough, all things considered. The location is very central, there's free parking, etc. Spend a couple of days max.

This hotel is right in the centre of Rijeka. A short stroll brings you to the bustling pedestrian area. The hotel itself is really good - splendid facilities. Highly recommended.

Hotel is located in the bustling centre of Rijeka, Modern, good size room with all the amenities you would expect in a 4 star Hotel but the en-suite was small. An excellent continental breakfast with a variety of cooked options, which is not typical of most European hotels. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, We decided to eat in the Hotel restaurant one evening, the food and service were of a very high standard.
Over all a very nice hotel, conveniently located in the centre of Rijeka with free parking.

This is my second stay at the Bonavia, and both times were extraordinary, relaxing, and enjoyable! The spa is excellent, and a nice massage and some time in the sauna are great ways to relax after travelling. The food is sublime, with traditional and contemporary foods; and one shouldn't miss the breakfast. The hotel offers complimentary internet access in the rooms, though it is by ethernet cable.

Overall I found this a remarkable, pleasant hotel with friendly staff. Highly recommended!

  • Liked — Courtious staff
  • Disliked — Internet access is good, but could use improvement.

The staff was very friendly. The room and bathroom were small but adequate. Parking was no charge and outside the front door with shopping and restaurants close. The basket of cookies in the room was great. The breakfast was huge!
