    Location was excellent. Breakfast was a buffet with plenty of choices, plus eggs, bacon, etc to order.

    The hotel was obviously a "grand" hotel in its time, but has not seen a substantial renovation in quite a few years and could really use one.

    This hotel has a good location but it needs to be thoroughly modernized. I understand that to maintain a hotel of this size and obvious previous elegance is difficult but it is currently not up to minimum standards, in our opinion. The hot water was lukewarm and when we asked about this we were told to run the waterfor 10 minutes since all the guests were on the 4th floor and the water took a long time to get to us. In addition, the bathroom activated an exhust fan each time the light was turned on and this fan gave off an unpleasant odor. In short, bring the rooms up to current code.

    Good access to the old city, it was only a few minutes walking distance. The hotel maybe need some renovation, but it has good old atmosphere. I have to say that the staff was friendly enough.

    Needed to wait more than 10 minutes to have hot water in the bath.

    Good breakfast only!!

    Very bad welcome. I ordered 2 rooms with air condition system but found out that the Hotel does not have any a/c system installed. When we asked for an electric fan I was told that onlt the rooms on top floor had such fans. When I told them that this was unacceptable from a three star hotel the Reception replied that "the only star in this hotel is me". I strongly do not recommend this place (I refuse from calling it a hotel) to anyone even if for free!!!!!!!!

    Location thats it !!

    This is the worst hotel we have ever stayed in. The rooms had no air conditioning or a fan which meant it was intolerably hot in July. When we opened the window we were eaten alive by mosquitoes. The next day we complained that we had been up to 5am due to the heat and insects and we were told that there was nothing that they could do and that they knew all about the problems - we weren't the first people to complain. When we asked for something to stop the mosquitoes we were told that we'd need to buy something ourselves. We only booked the hotel as there was nothing else in town available, I wish we hadn't bothered.

    Good location in walking distance to city center and even closer to sea shore. Breafast was ok.

    This hotel must have been a good one around 20 years ago but was not renovated or refurbished since then. Most of bath rooms equipment needs replacement as well as the furnitures in rooms. Lack of flight in the corridor on second floor as combined with yellow bath tube in one of the rooms made the standard even lower. The biggest suprize was wedding party organized by the hotel on saturday night. Having such party with live music downstairs sucessfuly discuraged us from sleeping till down. We used this hotel as last resort and it should be treated this way.

    Bars at the beach are close. Other than that, All is bad.

    No separation between toilet and shower area in the bath room. After taking shower, water was scattered throuth whole the bath room. No air conditioning is installed. I had to open all windows to make my room cooler. But it allows mosquetos to come into my room and I ended up mosquetos bites. In the hallway, there were no lights, so I had a hard time to open the door of my room with the very ancient key.

    Hotel Riviera was obviously once a grand old hotel and it is sad to see that it appears to have lost its shine i.e. old flaking paintwork around windows etc. It would be great to see the hotel spruced up so it could be given back its 'grandeur'.

    Smell of sewers in the bathroom, no running hot water (just lukewarm)

  • Couple

    It had a very central location and the hotel staff was knowledgeable and very helpful about things to do and see in the area. The building is absolutely gorgeous

    Breakfast was mediocre, the rooms are outdated and a little noisey...

    The position and hotel's lobby. It's the cheapest in the city.

    It looks devasteted, nothing fixed since 19-th century. It's a horror image, much more less that I expect.

    location was good

    stayed for 1 night in the hotel, arriving very late and leaving early in the morning. i contacted the hotel staff in advance to ask about breakfast and they told me we would get a breakfast package in the morning to take with us, however when we arrived at the hotel the staff didn't no anything about this and said it was too late to do anything about it, so we had to leave in the morning with empty stomachs for a 5h ferry trip. they also refused any compensation so we were really dissapointed with the service. room was big but i must agree with the others saying that the place really needs renovation and is a bit spooky. also the double room that i booked wasn't double but a twin room.

    The locations, nothing else.

    Too much old furniture with a terrible bathroom attached to the room.

  • Couple

    Wonderful old-fashioned socialist era building, really authentic. No frills, but no problems. Very good value for money. Wonderful breakfast terrace and very convenient for the bus station and central Pula

    The coffee included with breakfast is really not the best.
