If you make it to Rijeka, you have to stay at Guesthouse Rijeka-Demetrova. You will be given a warm and friendly welcome, a free map of Rijeka and lots of recommendations. The host even brought a glass of šljivovica for me. The couple running this guesthouse is absolutely lovely and delighting to chat with. They live in the flat next door and you are told to ring the bell whenever you need something.
The four rooms are all differently designed and each goes with private bathroom, AC and TV. The place is clean (except for some beard stubbles), the bed comfortable with great pillows and the nights very quiet. You get privacy, service and a good night´s rest at reasonable prices. You can pay in Kuna or Euro.
You should not be irritated by the neighbourhood. It looks like some weird and shabby harbour area at first sight, but is perfectly safe even at night. In addition, the awesome restaurant NA KANTUNU is right at the corner; the Korzo, the bus stops for busses to Trsat and Opatja, the harbour with two café boats (NINA and ARCA FIUMANA) and a superb bakery are close at hand.
So many pleasant surprises in a city I did not expect a lot of in first place. I just wanted to find a place from which I could easily make daytrips to Rab and Labin and found a place with lovely people and loads of entertainment in the streets. Rijeka´s summer festival was celebrated with beautiful fireworks at midnight June 30. I just had to jump to the harbour and then right into bed to catch my bus next morning - as I have said: perfect location...
