Reviewed 13 August 2014

This hotel is excellently located very close to the port and the amphitheatre, and only a short walk to the main town area. Although some of the rooms appeared quite spacious we were unfortunately booked into one of the smaller rooms where there was barely enough room to even walk around the bed. The rooms have no air conditioning and...

We are just back from an amazing week in Pula and we stayed in the Riviera Hotel. The location is excellent and the rooms are very spacious and clean. We were delighted to have a balcony and it was great to sit out in the evenings, even though it is small, there is plenty of room for 2 chairs and...

Hotel good value for money. No air con but have fans. Clean and breakfast good. Pula good for eating out. Hotel located near train station and bus station. Worth visiting Umag Porec and Rovinj and check out out Fazana just 5 kilometres away.

I would have to go with the very positive reviews that were written here already - when booking the hotel, we knew more or less what to expect and that seems to be the clue for an enjoyable stay in Hotel Riviera. We also really enjoyed the atmosphere of days gone by - you can easily imagine how the rich...

After 3 of my five days I was finally moved from an allocated room which didn't match what I understood I was going to get! It smelt dreadful, had stains on carpet,grotty edges bath and skirtings.A yukky bit stuck to the toilet cistern. Probably was once a pleasant hotel but that was in the 50's or 60's. Some of the...

If you like unusual places to stay we would thoroughly recommend you stay here. It is an amazing atmospheric place to spend the night and very central. It is an Austro-Hungarian palace full of grandeur and austere character and has an empty rather chilling presence - we hardly saw anyone. You are greeted by a wide entrance hall with a...

This hotel was exactly as I expected thanks to the accurate trip advisor reviews. Built in 1909, this crumbling listed gem was a real joy. The balcony windows from the 4th floor had an incredible view of the harbour with evening light shows on the cranes; thousands of birds gather in the trees in a small park below at dusk...

This hotel is so convenient and wonderfully close to the pula city centre. My boyfriend and I stayed here for the outlook festival and if we ever came again, we would truly recommend it.
