It is huge hotel for Rab Island (biggest an one of the oldest). Old architecture, repainted pink without good reason. It has own parking and place for two or three buses. You need to walk around to come to reception in the middle of the building. Rooms in the left and right wing are average for four stars; but they... More

This is a lovely hotel, situated in a beautiful park, very near the centre of Rab. The rooms are quite small, but they are clean and comfortable and the view is spectacular. The hotel pool is very nice, especially in the morning, when there are few people there. Breakfast is ok, but the dinner is not very good - they... More

What is nice about this hotel is the swimming pool area (note that the hotel doesn't give you towels for free...), the buffet for breakfast, and the location in the Rab old town center, barely 10min walk from the Catamaran (Jadrolinija) arrival place in the port. But it's definitely not worth a 4* hotel standard. Staff at the reception/bar is... More

Terrible housekeeping: dirty floors, hair on carpets, clugged bathtub due to hair and dirt in the drain, toilet bowl not cleaned even once during 7 days, soap not refilled even once. Disappointing F&B, as if there is no chef. Lots of food during breakfast but cheap and of very poor quality (e.g. salami). Poorly prepared dinner: overcooked meat and fish,... More

Dated, dark, noisy lift shaft next to room. No balcony rooms available. Good repetitive - we were only there 3 nights... Staff not very welcoming, kept speaking to us in German which we can't understand. The wee man who served our drinks was nice.... but spoke in German every day..... £155 per night is not particularly cheap for this hotel... More

We stayed here recently for three nights whilst touring Croatia and out of five different hotels this was the most disappointing. We checked in which was reasonably efficient and went to our allocated room on the second floor. We had booked eight months previously and requested a double room with balcony and high floor, obviously not to be. The room... More

Good and clean rooms, amusing service personal, very good food. Location is fantastic almost inside the old city of Rab. A great view from the balcony, nice walk to the beach and possibility to take a free boat ride daily to a nearby peninsula for a nice bath. With the car you can easily go around the island and explore.
