Friendly staff, great food (half board)! The right place to feel good! The rooms could be more modern, although the bathrooms have been remodeled. The hotel will be rebuilt as a 4 star hotel until next year. read hotel review

Very friendly staff, great food and very clean throughout the whole hotel. The location was great - a 10 minutes' walk to Porec or you take the tourist train, which goes back and forth every 40 minutes. Boat trips in Porec, for example to Rovinj, are definitely recommended. The nice beach with the fantastic view of Porec is only about 100 meters away. Again anytime! read hotel review

Inexpensive, good hotel. All in all clean, but you should not to look in the corners and too inquisitively. the bathroom needs to be renovated, but it is kept medium clean. there is no mini bar in the room and the TV turned out to be very small. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the buffet good, even if somewhat monotonous. the dining room is very noisy, so it is recommended, to avoid the terrace. The evening offer is end of September, naturally attuned to retirees, the music is therefore corresponding. The proximity to the city Porec is sensational ... and trips are easy to make from there. Nice is, also that one thought about the bikes. Conclusion: a hotel, that captivates in the off-season by very favorable prices, and is reasonably clean. You can confidently recommend it for people with not too high standards of luxury. Friendliness in the hotel Zagreb definitely capitalized. read hotel review
