We have travelled extensively and in recent years have stayed in over 100 hotels so this revue has some basis for accuracy. The staff at Bonavia--every one of them were disinterested. The worst we encountered were those working the breakfast room and diners (not only us) were not made welcome nor attended to with any degree of enthusiasm. Their attitude...

We stayed in the Hotel Bonavia for one night as we traveled between Zadar and Pula. It was a nice hotel, with a comfortable bed and a big room with a lovely view from our 6th floor room (this was great for watching the massive storm that happened during our stay!) The breakfast was very nice and apparently the hotel...

I have got some 20 years of experience with this hotel. If you are in Rijeka for business it is ideally located. If you are in Rijeka for pleasure, again, it is ideally located. The staff is excellent and you can certainly feel at home there. Cuisine is also excellent, and you can see many important local people sitting in...

I stayed here one night (which was enough) while doing business in Rijeka. This is the best hotel in the center of town. And pretty much the only hotel in the center of town. So if you have to be in the center of town, stay here. That's what I did. That said, I wouldn't do it again unless I...

There is nothing grand with this hotel, except the price. Location is very central if you need to stay in the heart of the town. This may be disatvantage as it may be very noisy until early morning hours due to nearby entertainment venues. Stepping into the lobby gives rather discouraging impression of the establishment. It is very humble, poorely...

Location of the hotel is really amazing. It is located less than 100m from Rijeka's main pedestrian zone, Korzo, close to some good pubs, restaurants and coffee bars. Walking distance from the hotel are also the Old Town, several interesting museums and the water front. One of the museums, the Modern Gallery is literally across the street from the hotel....

I thought the lobby could use an update, and the rooms were small, but clean. The location was perfect and the front desk staff was excellent. A large breakfast buffet was included, and the front dining room was lovely.

The hotel is located in the center of the town, very near to the shopping area and the marina. Rooms are comfortable, clean and spacious. There is a little gym in the basement with good equipment (no dumbbells, but the multipower machine is equipped with up to 140kg). The only negative aspect is that in the morning the air inside...

I spent three nights here in December on business; the Christmas market outside created a charming ambience in the evenings. The center of town has several very charming pubs and restaurants.

This hotel used to have a great reputation and was known as one of the best hotels in Rijeka. Unfortunately that was then and this is now.
