“Okay for a Brief Visit”
Reviewed 9 June 2012

This is a dated hotel from the 1970's but everything worked and the view of the sea from the balcony was great. Actually, there is plenty of room in the standard double with 2 wardrobes and a vanity complete with small chair in the bathroom. Everything worked and that is all you can ask for. The restaurant serves good buffet meals with lots of choices and a wonderful terrace for enjoying the view of the water. For the price, this is not a bad choice in the Pula area.

Room Tip: Ask for a western facing room.

This Hotel would have been "THE place" during the 60s and 70s.
Excellent staff and service and good food. Dinner was buffet style and only about $20 AUD a head including wine and beer.
Breakfast was included and quite substantial range of hot and cold food.
Wifi only in the Foyer area which is a nuisance but fast and free.
Very dated decor and tired carpets etc.
Lighting is retro and interesting.
Tired Hotel but clean, and good friendly staff.

This place is all about the location - the beach is right behind the hotel and is worth the stay here. As per other reviews, the rooms and hotel are quite dated. As well, the rooms are small and in need of some serious renos. You don't stay here for the accomodations, you stay here for the beach...

My husband and I recently stayed here for one night. We had read all of the reviews so booked this hotel whilst being fully aware it needing updating etc. but as long as it was clean we didn't mind.
On entering the Hotel Brioni, it's like stepping back in time! Nothing has changed since the 1980's, it was bit surreal! We paid extra for a sea-view and yes the view was nice, but the room was very disappointing. Aside from the decor, the beds were creaky and uncomfortable and the carpet (yes carpet) was very grubby. There was also a very over-powering smell of floral disinfectant! As people have previously mentioned, there is no AC in the rooms and due to the heat, we had to leave the patio door open when we went to bed - unfortunately our neighbours sat out on their veranda talking loudly until the early hours. We had a very restless nights sleep.
Breakfast the following day was average - normal selection of breads, cereals, ham, cheese etc along with some hot food. There is a nice area outside to dine if you so wish. The hotel is located in a very scenic location and a short walk takes you down to the shore. With regards to parking, there is very limited parking directly outside the hotel but we never seen one free space during our stay and had to park a few minutes walk away. I probably woudln't choose to stay in this hotel again unless is underwent a serious re-vamp! It has alot of potential, shame that improvements have not been made.

This hotel is old and since nothing seems to have been changed since the 1960s, it actually looks sort of retro now, which I don't mind. What I do mind, however, is that while it has a huge lobby and big hallways, the rooms and bathrooms are tiny, the beds are creaky and there's no AC, no fridge or minibar. When it's 38 degrees in your room it's not much fun to be stuck with lukewarm drinks for the night. The scenery around the hotel is very nice, however, there is no parking! Upon arrival, we were told by the receptionist "to park anywhere". This meant that we were driving around for a long time until we finally found some parking (in front of another hotel, which I'm sure was happy that we used their parking lot). Another big problem was that despite what the receptionist said, the hotel beach is _not_ suitable for children! It's rocky with deep water. Luckily, we found a public pebble beach nearby, which was nice, if crowded. The biggest problem with the hotel, however, is the price. If the hotel uses 60s standards, the prices should be similar, too... Not to mention that since the hotel doesn't seem to have a double + extra bed option, with my five-year old, we were forced to pay for a "triple".

Room Tip: With experience from two different secions of the hotel, all rooms seems to be very noisy.
