Hotel Convent
Reviewed 22 February 2015

As we neared the Hotel we were baffled of its location which resembles on a trailor camp with Boules structure for elders with resemblence of a nursing home. In the hotel we we're suprised that there was no elevator which becomes a big problem for some people with issues of carrying luggage but ofcourse as we were expecting there was nobody qualified either to take our stuff upstairs into the first floor. After we took luggage ourselves trough the hall we came to the room. We were really expecting bigger room compared to the rooms trough Istra and nearby cities and it was nothing like it, they were small with no space to move with 1 person in nontheless with 2 people. There was also no balcony and bed was making crumbly noises and after sitting on it I actually felt in. It was also extremely cold at night, I managed to sleep 3 hours after heating myself by the radiator in the bathroom which was also the only one. The only thing positive room wise was cleanliness and overall quiet. One would expect to have at least a pool to jump in after a morning routine or a savna in the hotel but one should figure; the hotel and the facility were seperate 300 m away and someone would have to put on a skiing equipment in the winter season going forth and back to have a bloody swim. Food: was very modest and one sided with no choice for other foodies like vegeterians etc. You'd had to eat what you got and in my case I actually had a ''jogurt'' day. Trying to relax on the coast there were bad fumes coming from everywhere and overall it was a filthy coast. With all said it's definitely not a classic 4 star hotel rather a 2* motel - hostel at best with a place to crash and dissapearing next day.In case of having another experience in Ankaran I would not return there in a million years.

My wife & I stayed here on route to Croatia, not by choice, it was late night & other hotels were full. When we arrived at the address using the sat nav, we were surprised to find the hotel located on a camp site. We were told all rooms were full but we would be staying in a 'villa' in the hotel grounds, for 'villa' read 'bog standard apartment' - that's exactly what it was, but for 126.50 euro. This was a rip off. Breakfast the following morning, which was totally self service, was also very average. The main hotel looks quite nice in daylight, unlike the 'villa' we experienced.

In this hotel the staff is very unpolite and rude. Impossible to order coffe in a crowded caffe. The food is average, so are the rooms. The prices are too high for what this hotel offer. The beach is ugly and it stinks. In non season time everithing is closed.

This hotel is a refurbished 1000 yrs-old benedictine monastery, situated within hundreds of yards of a coast lined by pine trees. We liked it a lot - spacious rooms, sparseness of the decor, friendliness -even chumminess - of waiters and the reception team. WiFi and ethernet in every room. I did miss an extra (small) table in the room where I could do some work (on the laptop). We had great walks on the coast and the sunny hills above, where we tasted wine and olive oil with local farmers.

The kids liked bowling + swimming pool/sauna. We benefitted from visiting out of season - i can see that the hotel might be less enjoyable in the summer, surrounded by hordes of RVs and campers.

In a nutshell, probably one of the best places to visit when one is in the area.

Room Tip: I suggest Rm 121 - corner suite, larger with a view on 2 side including sea. Nice for sunsets.
