The hotel itself is pleasant, but the location is less than ideal. You are at the mercy of hourly ferries that operate only during set hours. This is not the place to stay if you want to explore the beautiful streets of Rovinj. Most guests, including myself, are there for big conferences.
The hotel is dated, with very small rooms. I paid a good bit to be upgraded and it was worth every penny. The spa is excellent, and in summertime I'm sure it would be a much more enjoyable marooning. The terrace is lovely, and the service there is very good. My experience with the reception desk staff was not as gracious. I would explore other options if you plan on seeing Rovinj.
