Nicely decorated, comfortable rooms, helpful staff, outstanding food at breakfast (included) and dinner, good parking. No elevator.
Everything was nearly perfect. Wired internet connection did not work in our room.
Friendly, comfortable, excellent service and restaurant was an enjoyable experience.
Excellent staff!!! they helped me with everything that i needed.... not a thing
It is a family owned boutique hotel with strong European f;air with large comfortable rooms and updated bathrooms. Upscale restaurant. Personal attention by hotel owners. All in all very enjoyable stay.
Excellent location in the old city. Very good bed and breakfast.
the location and comfort could have lower rates for summer. It's a business hotel well located in the old area of Zadar
The overall quality of the hotel.
comfortable, luxurious hotel, very clean, good location small bathroom
Ease of access to town center and it's attractions. Friendly staff. Late breakfast until 11.
Great location. Lovely rooms. Friendly staff. Maybe a little overpriced.
Location within old town Very difficult to find and high price
Very helpful and friendly staff, very clean and comfortable room, right in centre of Zadar. N/A
As the only reasonable hotel in the old city area, the Bastion turned out to be an excellent choice for location, good breakfast buffet but didn't use the restaurant requested a non-smoking room but there was an ashtray in the room although there was no obvious smell of tobacco
Everything. service, location.
Close to freeway was the only good thing about this hotel. Breakfast was weenies. We woke up to no water at all and could not shower, use the sink or the toilet. The ratings on the internet are overrated. We couldn't wait to leave and should have continued in our trip to stay in Zagreb where there are More hotels and places to eat, The date on the water bottle in the hotel room was expired. The sink stopper was stuck down and we had to put our hands in dirty water to pry out the stopped with the hotel key. When we checked in there was one employee running everything, check in, bar, restaurant. The TV was about 20 yrs old.
Hotel Kolovare is a nice hotel in an excellent location. We attended a Croatian-hosted NATO conference in the hotel and their facilities were excellent. The staff is very nice and very professional. A very nice stay and would certainly recommend it.
We enjoyed the hospitality of the staff and the cleanliness of the room and hotel.
The Hotel staff was very friendly and professional. The meeting rooms, restaurant and lobby were very nice. The hotel is near the water and has some great views. The beds were fair. Probably average for European standards. The air conditioning didn't work too well. Fortunately the temperatures were moderate during my stay.
Very nice and clean hotel. We actually got upgraded to a suite, so really nothing to complain. The breakfast buffet was well above par.
The only benefit to the hotel is its location. It is exactly half way between the old town and the bus/ train station. This is what we needed as we only had a half day to explore the town. The hotel is old and in need of a refresh. It is pretty dated in its deco and defnitely give the restaurant a pass if you can.
room location very bad
Lovely setting, excellent quality of rooms, food ,service and kindness of staff and the gardens were wonderful. It was a wonderful experience ,highly recommended we will be back. Having to leave!
The staff were very friendly and welcoming and our room was better than I thought it would be. The pool facilities were great and it was right on the beach and the food was delicious.
Location and surrounding is very nice, close to the beach. Clean, cosy room. Service.
room is clean; staff is nice internet is slow but ridiculously expensive, at 100 kuna. i complained to staff and they said "yeah, i know". so i'm probably not the first one to complain but the hotel hasn't done anything about it. totally wasted my time. there should be instructions attached to the safe.
Nice hotel, super food, beautiful garden, nice pool. Beach not so beautiful because so many people at the beach; stuff a little bit slow sometimes.
Very nice and relaxing spot for couples. Familys with young children have better resort nearby. Quiet and beautiful garden and poolarea. Easy to go to Zadar bt bus or taxi. It was no problem to chnge dinner to lunch on halfboard. The beds was to hard. Would like better service at the pool although this was no big deal.
The adriana is a very nice hotel, with good amenities, food and a lovely pool. In a tourist area of several other hotels. However, the nearby beach isn't one of the nicer ones in croatia and it is located quite a distance form the old town of zadar in the borik area not as shown on the map provided.
Sunshine in the morning, pool within reach, great breakfast and dinner! Mosquitos, no lift, bed a little hard
The staff is very friendly, the pool area is very inviting for a relaxed afternoon. The buffet and the food are good. It is a little bit pricey, although worth the money.
The food was not good - too much salt in the food, too much sugar in all of the drinks, not much variation in the food from day to day, fish and meat were always over-cooked.
Good food, especially the salads and fruit. Lovely terrace near the seaside for having coffee, drinks etc. In the spa a large area for relaxing, an okay sauna and a wide range of different massages and other services offered. The restaurant was very crowded and noisy at dinner time.
Super ! - what a surprise upon arrival
Good food Missing English speaking TV channel with news
location was a bit far out of town/local people were very unfriendly and rude
Only for family with kids. Room are old and not well equiped.
I like the fact that the hotel had so much amenties, it was friendly safe and had a lovely relaxing atmosphere. the staff were very friendly and helpful none
Good catering and fantastic range of facilities during off season, although I fear it would be less good on season. Some staff were a little inpolite, but not all, and nothing serious.
The good location and huge outdoor pool and lounge areas Internet connections were slow and prone to problems - especially with Hotmail.
Nothing really. Horrible buffet, nothing outstanding about the hotel or stay experience.
Very polite staff. Small room
A truly gentleman as owner, it is nice choice for given price (we paid € 60 /night). Family milieu in a nice residential area. However, remember you have to pay cash, they don’t take cards.
The staff was very friendly and very welcoming. The breakfast was also very nice. The walls are a bit thin or perhaps we just had really loud neighbors. But in general it is in a quiet location.
The host was extremely helpful and friendly.
I love the owner! I asked for fruit with my breakfast (in November) and he delivered apples, figs, and clementines from his own trees. Comfortable room. Only 20 minutes walk from the center of the city! The room was a bit small, but I didn't spend much time there.
Room was spacious and clean. The house is not very close to the old city. You have to walk for about 10 mins to get a bus. The bus ride is about 10-15 mins but it passes close to the old city. The air conditioning charge was €5 per room per night extra. The availability of air conditioning, and associated charges, should be advised in advance.
Staff were helpfull Sme days room was not cleaned
Near the sea Need to take the bus to go to Zadar Center (20 minutes by Bus)
The staff friendliness and the villa itself is very nice. It is a bit far from the city centre however it wasnt a problem for us since we had a rental car. The staff showed us some nice places on the map that were worth a visit. Before actually arrivng at the hotel, Villa Valentina sent us several emails and sms' to confirm our booking and asking us whether we required transfer services- which is very positive and helpful.
The hosts were particularly friendly and helpful.
Own balcony plus two other communal balconies, all with sea views. Very clean room, good mattresses, free kitchenette. Good breakfast - cheese, ham, egg, jam, nice bread. Helpful owners - they accept euros or kuna or both. Quiet location, only 5 mins to good restaurant, 10 to beach. Easy buses to town. Only used taxi once (from airport 200 kuna).
The breakfast was good. We got our choice (as we arrived early) for a bigger room with 2 bedrooms. There was air conditioning/heating, which was great. The sheeting on the beds was for single beds, so there was always a division in the sheets in the middle of the bed. The housekeeping never actually made our beds. If we did not make it ourselves, they would remove the sheets and fold up a new set, leaving us to make up the beds again the next night. The directions for getting to Villa Valentina were terrible. When we arrived in Zadar, we found none of the landmarks we had been given. We then called her for directions/help. She told us to ask a local how to get to a certain restaurant from where we were at. When we did that (we had to stop and ask a few times), we found the restaurant 20 minutes drive away from where we started and just around the block from Villa Valentina. Not helpful.
large room lovely view . breakfast not great. charged for air conditioning wanted same turned off all the time entered room to switch off. two small towels for five days.
The staff was verry nice. The entire vila has no centralized heated system. We have only air condition in the room and in the night it was very cold and they make a lot of noise. This is not a vila for accomodation in october.
It is a beautiful house with large rooms including also kitchen. There are common big balcony outside rooms to seat and to see panorama. Good breakfast. It is very hard to arrive in Villa Valentina: we have had to phone and then ask to a policeman to arrive there. After I have found that they have send me more information to find hotel.
We were dreading a "kid night" on our recent 10 day vacation along Dalmation coast and thought that with water slides and pools the adult quality would suffer. We were very plesantly surprised. The quality was great and our entire family had a great time! I truly hope this new hotel can maintain the great shiny appearance and high food quality. Kudos! We would all go back in a flash...though I do not think it is a long holiday.
Comfort, style. Unfortunately we were 3 adults travelling without children. There were too many unruly, screaming children at the hotel. We would have loved it if there had been an adult only dining area or part of the hotel exclusive for adults.
Very good for 4star hotel, almost it could be 5star without any problems. Very clean hotel with pools, good food, children playgrounds.... We hadn't minibar prepared, even fridge is in the room, it was empty. Staff told me that I must order drink for minibar, and I think it is not good. But they can correct it without problems, I suggest them to do it.
We liked the beautiful pool-area, with all the activities for children. We also liked the room very much and the spa-area where really nice. The staff where really helpful and service minded! The "fresh" fruits in the restaurant looked very tempting but they had been frosen so they did not taste that good.
Pool was clean. Fair amount of activities. Combo of private seaside and pool. The buffet was pretty good. Rooms were adequate for two adults and two children (8 and 10). They only vacuum the floors and don't mop them, so the dirt and sand still remains. Also, in the room there was an electric mosquito killer to plug into the wall and tablets that looked like chewing gum. Since the tablets were just lying on a shelf in the room, my son thought they were gum and almost ate them. Not smart on management's part! Wine and mixed drinks without alcohol were expensive.
the staff and the food nothing
Family room is very spacious and well furnished. The full boad meal is perfect to enjoy during stay. It is regred that I could not see all facilities due to under construction.
It is good furnished leisure hotel. Amusment activity for childre is excelent. It includes full board, which serves many ttype of excelent food. It is still under construction in the resort area.
Good hotel for travelers with children.
Excellent vacation option for families with small children. Very nice and modern hotel with perfect food. Quite pricey though.
Plenty of room with nice view, peaceful surroundings, good breakfast, friendly hostess, good internet access. The strong smell of detergent in towels and sheets disturbed at first, but we found out that it is very common in Croatia: feels like their washing machines do not rinse the detergent out too much at all.
The shore was some 20 or so metres from my window. And the view of the sea (sunset!) and the isles was great. The landlady is extremely friendly, caring and helpful. Fast free internet is a big bonus. It's easy to get to the city centre by car or by bus. Minor issues: the bed squeaked a bit much, and there could be a bit more place to dry your towels in the bathroom, the floor could use a carpet (or wood panels).
Location, our room looked right out over the water. It was a little far into the centre of zadar however I believe most places are outside of the city centre and the bus centre was within 20 metres of the villa. The Villa really is a villa and not a hotel however the house was nice and quite large. The rooms were simpole but large and comfortable and I would except so even for a family.
Hotel staff (Triana) was very helpful and pleasent in everything we needed. The hotel is one bus from everywhere and in a good place in town. The room was very crowded, with low ceiling. There were lots of bugs, and cleaning service took place once in 3 days.
The airport/main bus terminal transfers provided were very helpful. I loved my room with a scenic view. Although it is not right in town, the bus stop for the bus that goes into the old town is within eyesight, and there is a grocery store that sells alcohol beverages right there. You can also walk along the seashore via walkway into town if you like to walk longer distances. Overall very convenient, and would stay there again. Also the breakfasts were great. The owner/operators were kind and helpful. Be aware that if you take the National Park Island tour/boat ride, which I highly recommend, the guy who "picks you up", actually walks with you to the harbour pick up point, so be prepared to walk a bit. Don't miss this excursion!
close to the sea no
Large apartment, very clean and functional. personnel was very kind. The air conditioning was noisy and not powerful enough. Not cheap, also condidering that breakfast is not included.
We have stayed in several "villas" during our trip in Croatia. This one is inadequate for vacationers who wish to stay for several days. It is overpriced in comparison to other hotels of its expected standard
the hotel staff was very helpful and friendly. the villa is directly at the beach. however, our room was at the back on the side of the street - for which reason the owner offered us a discount without us asking for it. the airconditioning did not work.
Beautiful appartment with a superb sea wiew. Friendly staff, appartment seviced every day. Very peaceful. Shops, bus stop are just a few metres away
For the price it was very nice. Our window looked out over the sea it was small and quiet.
the view of the adriatic was great and area was very walkable. had a 5 AM pickup to get to the airport for an early flight and the staff greeted me in the morning with a to-go breakfast box. wonderful place, can't wait to get back there.
Relaxing, enjoyed the terrace overlooking sea whilst having breakfast or drinks in the evening. Managed to catch bus into Zadar City which was no trouble at all.
Clean and comfortable but very over priced. The terrace is nice and it is very close to the sea. I think this hotel is very overpriced. The design and decor are very dated and old fashioned. It was clean and comfortable but not very good value compared to other hotels in croatia. It also 3.5km out of zadar so not central at all, in fact not really in zadar. We booked a double room with a sea view, but outside of our window there was a roof, which spoilt the view, which was very disappointing. The breakfast was average to poor - we had to specifically ask for eggs, because we saw someone else eating them, but they were not offered to us.
Great location, right next to the sea for views, walks swimming etc. Regular cheap, bus service to Zadar. Friendly, helpful staff at hotel.
Very friendly staff
The food was excellent. Staff were very friendly. The furnishings of the room were rather old-fashioned. It looked like it hadn't been refurbished since the early 1980s, but ti was very clean, and had effective air conditioning.
very helpful staff, sea view was exactly that. much further out of town than implied. it didn't affect us but it could not be any less wheelchair accessable.
We really enjoyed the proximity to the water of this hotel. Lovely walks along the sea wall and swimming in the clear clean water were highlights of the stay. The staff was also helpful in assisting us to get to the old town. The air conditioning was not able to keep up with the hot weather and we were quite uncomfortable during the night. Compared to other gorgeous places we stayed in Croatia, we also felt the price was a little high.
Parking. Too much expensive for a tree stars hotel. Old fashioned decorated. Breakfast: simple.
This hotel and its staff was incredible. We are from the U.S., and am used to staying at Hilton, JW Marriott and Kimpton hotels, and of all the places we stayed in Croatia, this was my favorite. You are right in the heart of it all, and no other hotel can offer this. If you open your windows at night, you'll hear the live music that plays most nights. There are only maybe 12 rooms, so book out far in advance. They also had the best breakfast...we always buy the breakfast option in our rates for all the hotels on our trip. Staff was exuberant and helpful, and made us feel welcome every time we left and came into the lobby. It's in the center of the city, so you have to park a few blocks away, then drag your luggage through the streets to the hotel. No cars allowed on the city streets.
Good food, great service, nice bed and great bathroom. Challenging parking situation, but not unusual for an old town hotel.
Vey good kitchen, very useful and helpful stuff, close to the sea, Very nice athmosphere. If apartment could be an apartment in the future should be a little bit renovated especcially bathroom.
I have spent a little time to answer to this question but the price was quite reasonable See above
Very convenient position near the old city centre, but quiet and peaceful. Access by car, until you know it is not easy, due to pedestrianised areas and narrow streets. Nothing, we were very satisfied.
I asked for a quiet room but was put in a room right beside the building which was going on next door.
Everything. A delightful place in a beautiful situation. Charming staff. The restaurant was excellent. No. But if you wanted to be in the centre of Zadar, you might think it too far out. You have to take a bus
From the time I arrived, I knew this was going to be a great place to stay. The location, the staff, the room and the food were all terrific. The owner and the matre d'hotel, Radke were both so helpful- and so is the rest of the staff. Even the chef was amazing- with his food as well as his offer to help with my luggage- you rarely find this kind of hospitality, especially, at these prices!
Kind staff, best value for money, location direct on beach, close to the city center.
View from hotel bar. Thankfully we were only staying for 1 night. Cleanliness of room in particular the dirty carpet and dead flies all over the walls. No airc onditioning or fans considering the very hot climate. Smelly hotel. Very poor location. Broken shower. This hotel is not a three star hotel and should be removed from all online booking sites. It is a disgrace that this hotel should appear on any site. Breakfast was absolutely pathetic
Pansion Vista is a nice little hotel on the edge of Zadar. There is a regular bus line to the center of town just in front of the hotel. People working there are friendly and helpfull and fluent in both English and German. The restaurant is very basic, but good nonetheless. Don't expect too much luxury. The room and breakfast are very basic.
Very friendly multilingual staff, always happy to help. Excellent restaurant, food brilliant and service great. Room basic but clean and excellent value for money. Beautiful views of a paradise island Could provide more local info eg maps etc
Guest house Pegla has a great location for visiting Zadar old town. The rooms were clean and comfortable. One room had a lovely view of the bay, and both of our rooms had balconies. In addition, the owners are friendly and helpful. Tasty home-made crepes, a large bowl of fruit and grappa as well as coffee and tea were in our room. They also took us to nearby free parking. Furthermore, a very good, reasonably priced restaurant was just an easy 2 minutes' walk away. In our 2 rooms, all 4 of us slept soundly well into the morning as there was no noise. We would happily return to Guest House Pegla.
