Best hotel in RijekaPosted Aug 11, 2017
Bonavia is a fine and efficient four star hotel. On the positive side, the Internet access via Wi-Fi was very fast, the room was very clean, the air conditioning (in spite of 90F) was very efficient, the front desk service was very courteous and efficient. The breakfast that was included in the room rate was standard European breakfast (served in four star European hotels), and the room rate was reasonable. In spite of being located in the center of the city (superbly located), the area is remarkably quiet. On a downside, like most (non-American) European four star hotels, there is no doorman to assist you with your luggage (you will have to carry your luggage ten steps up to the lobby since there is no ramp for the handicap guests), lobby is diminutive, parking (surcharge) is on the public street and may be a challenge to find a parking spot. The garden restaurant caters exclusively to the bus tours (for dinner) and it is off limits to individual gusts. I was offered a table inside a completely empty room that was obviously not acceptable to me. My recommendation is to ignore the restaurant all together. There was no extra electrical outlets in the room or bathroom to charge your Iphone, shaver, or a laptop computer (you must unplug the standing lamp). If you adjust your expectation, you may enjoy staying there. I would definitely stay in this hotel again.

We enjoyed our stay . I especially loved the wellness and sauna included in the price. Breakfast was good and staff friendly and helpful. Room could use more electrical outlets for charging .

Pros: Good central location. Friendly, helpful staff. Large rooms. Good wellness facility with very good massage, but fitness room could be larger.
Cons: The shower screen didn't not attach to the rim of the bathtub and therefore flooded the bathroom floor each time the shower was used. better hairdryer
We enjoyed our stay and found the hotel well located for exploring Rijeka. The wellness facility offered good treatments, a sauna and steam room. The staff was very forendly and helpful. Rooms were spacious, clean and well appointed. It was also close to the ferry port. We enjoyed our brief stay at the hotel and in Rijeka.

Four starPosted Aug 4, 2016 on Hotels
This was a return to this hotel after a long hiatus. Still for us four star but hotel looks and fell bit tired. No air condition in hallways nor was the one working in our room. Front desk was ready to help fix this. There is no coffee maker in the room which is big miss especially since we had delux room with great balcony and view. It would be big plus if they install one in the rooms. We eat in hotel restaurant which is highly recommended. Service and food was excellent. Good choice of local wine. Again, aver all will give four star.

Great PlacePosted May 11, 2016 on Hotels
A very nice luxury room. Very nice bed. Large bathroom. A/C was able to be turned on (unlike most other hotels at this time of year) Elevator quick. Parking space free and right on hotel drive. Fast wifi. Awesome breakfast (prosecco and smoked salmon) Great dinner too, with a great waiter. 5 minute walk to harbor, 5 more to old town.

This is hotel we use for the time we need to stay in Rijeka proper. it is nice older hotel centrally located. The room was nice and large. Very clean, but carpets could use definite replacement. Overall a nice place to stay but quite overpriced.
