After reading an article in Conde Naste Traveller and visiting the reviews on this website, decided to go and have a night in Rovinj with my husband, as we were working in nearby Vrsar.
The outside of the hotel is stunning. The reception was dark, and the welcome from the staff brisk and uniterested. We were handed a key, shown the room and left to it. No info on breakfast times, room features, anything. This was not for lack of English, by the way! The room was in the attic, which was a good thing, judging from my experience with old houses and creaking floors!
The room was characterless, Red carpet, red bedspread, red chairs. It was fairly large in size and the bathroom was decorated by a deragned person. Bright yellow walls (not well painted) and false slate flooring. The shower was great though, good pressure, lots of hot water.
Bed was kingsize, great until you went to sleep on it. Saggy in all places and the pillows were lumpy. I had to ask for a second pillow, and the one given was just some padding in a pillow case. But, room was quiet and the ac was great.
Breakfast was crap, white bread, no cereals, no fruit, and the coffee cold, hot milk cold, and despite complaining, was still cold when it came back. Grrrrr. Think 200 euro for this night was not good value and it is NOT 4 stars. But to be fair, there is nothing better in Rovinj as far as my research tells me, so maybe this is the best there is? Would think it was 4 star if they put a bottle of water, maybe a kettle and some coffee and tea making things in the room. No mini bar, just some glasses and a bottle opener and nothing to drink....Just was well there is a cool bar a couple of streets back.
Would not recommend for value for money, but location is good.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A historic building in a cobblestone street leading to the church of St Euphemia and steps away from Rovinj's main square has been carefully renovated and transformed into a charming small hotel, where traditional features are combined with up to date facilities to ensure a unique and comfortable stay. The seamless blend of tradition and modernity is accented throughout the hotel, which boasts finely restored antique furniture, centuries old stone walls and exposed beams, as well as wi fi and air conditioning. Sumptuous breakfast is served on the shaded patio behind the hotel and in the stone-paved reception and lounge area; at night this turns into a lounge bar where guests can have a quick drink or sample wines from our small but well-stocked wine cellar and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere. Our 23 standard rooms, three family rooms and one suite are decorated in tranquil earthy tones, with elegant wrought iron beds, yet each is one of a kind, with hand-picked antique wardrobes and dressers. All rooms have modern en suite bathrooms with bathtubs or showers, air-conditioning and free wi fi. ... more less
