Siste kveld i Opatija...

"Vi promenerer på strandpromenaden i Opatija - Setaliste Franza Josefa - og forestiller oss at vi lever i en annen tid hvor Jarle går kledd i dress, hatt og med spaserstokk. I armen har han Julie med krinoline og parasoll. På kvelden spiller orkesteret opp til en vemodig vals på terrassen på ærverdige Hotel Kvarner, før aftenen avsluttes med en …

Etter en dag rik på opplevelser var gleden stor når vi kom frem til vårt første delmål, Opatija i Kroatia. Og gleden ble ikke mindre når en av hotellets 5-6 parkeringsplasser til alt overmål var ledig, og vi var sikret parkering resten av oppholdet :) Etter en lang dag var det to trøtte tryner som sovnet tidlig, klar for å hoppe i havet neste dag! …

Enjoying Krk from a sailboat

... and miss out seeing the Krk
Cathedral, so I toked here there to. Last but not least, we went to see Punats Franciscan
monastery on a small island in the centre of the inlet.

Our
sailing around Krk was really pleasant and fun, and I am very happy that my
friend liked it. My only regret is that I didn’t get to show her the town of
Malinska, but that’s ok, we will definitely come back to Krk again.

... it to the home/business where we were going to hunt truffles.

For some background, a truffle is basically a very expensive mushroom that grows underground. It has a rich distinctive taste and can be very expensive, up to 1000 Euro for a large truffle for certain varieties in the Istria region of Croatia that we visited. The reason they are hunted instead of gathered is that they can only be found by smell since no part of can be seen above ...

... on this warm, sunny day.

I wandered into Cigra Gallery, where the jeweler was handcrafting patina medallions engraved with intricate scrolls. His jewelry collection was extensive and I browsed for a few minutes, until he tapped me gently on the shoulder.

"Please, for you," Blaz said, handing me a beautiful medallion along with a bear hug and several kisses! “My gift to you for stopping here.”

His gift confirmed that excellent ...

    Meine Eltern sind aus Kroatien und ich habe in diesem wunderbaren Land viele Sommer verbracht. Dies war mein erster Besuch in Opatija und es hat mich mit Bewunderung erfüllt.

    Un'esperienza fantastica

    from

    Le altre recensioni descrivono bene questo hotel. Ogni cosa di questo posto trasuda classe. Siccome non c'erano molte le persone in mezza pensione, le prime 3 sere abbiamo cenato in un hotel gemellato, il Bristol, a circa 15 minuti a piedi. Le bevande erano gratuite, il cibo di alta qualità, sia al Bristol che all'Astoria. Il volo per Rijeka con Easy Jet è stato conveniente. Abbiamo organizzato il trasferimento tramite Bosmere Travel, servizio eccellente. Opatija è davvero stupenda, le spiagge solo pulitissime, il mare è cristallino. È possibile fare molte escursioni a Venezia, ai laghi di Plitvice, a Krk, Creta e molti altri posti. C'era gente cordiale, ma la maggior parte dei turisti erano austriaci, tedeschi e italiani. Spero possiate apprezzare questo hotel come abbiamo fatto noi.

    Ottimo rapporto qualità-prezzo per un hotel di stile

    from

    Un hotel eccellente. La posizione è ottima, nel centro di una delle località più belle dell'Istria. Le camere erano all'altezza di un hotel di classe, molto pulite e con arredi moderni. Offrono un eccellente rapporto qualità-prezzo e, se siete in tanti, vale la pena di negoziare sul prezzo e chiedere uno sconto. L'unica nota negativa è stato il fatto che siamo arrivati di sabato e il bar è rimasto molto presto sfornito. Per riassumere, l'hotel è una soluzione ottimale per un soggiorno in Istria.

    Un hotel stupendo

    from

    Siamo stati all'Astoria verso fine agosto 2006, quasi al termine dell'alta stagione estiva. L'hotel non era molto affollato e siamo stati trasferiti in una suite all'ultimo piano, molto moderna e piuttosto ampia. Tutto era nuovo e funzionava perfettamente. Un lato della camera era completamente occupato da finestre, con vista sulla collina e sul mare. Il letto e i divani erano molto confortevoli. Per essere una suite, il bagno era nella norma, anche se niente di eccezionale. Il personale della reception era molto gentile e disponibile e ci ha fornito consigli interessanti sui ristoranti. Gli addetti alle pulizie avrebbero, invece, potuto pulire meglio in bagno. Fate attenzione, ci sono tantissimi hotel a Opatija e trovare un parcheggio può diventare molto problematico. Ci sono pochi posti macchina in hotel e se arrivate in un momento sbagliato (ad esempio nel tardo pomeriggio) potreste andare incontro a un incubo. Il lungomare di Opatija è a senso unico e potreste impiegare un sacco di tempo a far tutto il giro... Avevamo inizialmente valutato l'Hotel Bristol e l'Astoria (entrambi gestiti dalla stessa catena alberghiera) ma soggiornare all'Astoria è stata un'ottima scelta.

    Gorgeous hotel, gorgeous views, great price

    from

    Spent one night here on a drive down the Dalmatian coast wtih my husband and parents. Driving into Opatija gave us our first view of the Adriatic sea, and took our breath away. The city itself is pretty touristy, and I would not recommend you go out of your way to visit, but if stopping here on your way down the coast, would definitely recommend Design Hotel Astoria. Loved it - it was my favorite hotel of the trip. Everything (lobby, dining area, rooms, terrace, balconies) was gorgeous. The room was very well appointed in a clean and modern style; nice flat-screen TV that we didn't use. The king-sized bed was really comfortable. Even the bathroom was beautiful. Shower knob was a bit tricky to figure out, though. Our room view was spectacular. We woke up early to watch the sun rise over the sea from one of our balconies (yes, we had 2!). We were on a non-smoking floor, but did notice a little bit of smokey-odor coming in from the AC vents at one point. Not too strong, didn't bother us much. Need to use your room key to turn on the AC and lights - I love how environmentally friendly that is! The hotel was really a steal - the price was pretty cheap for such good quality. Location within the tourist strip was great - walking distance to a bunch of restaurants and just across the street from the waterfront promenade. The included breakfast was pretty tasty. Reception staff was friendly and nice and when we told them where we parked (on the street, so as not to pay for parking), they came out and checked to make sure it was an okay parking space. Gave recommendations for dinner. We hated where we ate, though - DO NOT eat at Lungo Mare (I think that's what it's called) at the Savoy hotel across the street. Food was disgusting and overpriced, though the service was good. My husband's meal was inedible, and when he said so, they did not charge us for it.

    Value for money style

    from

    This is a great hotel. The location is very good in the heart of one of Istria´s most pleasant towns.

    The rooms were of the quality expected in any top hotel - very clean with modern furnishings.

    The rooms are excellent value for money and if you are booking several rooms it is worth trying to negotiate a discount.

    The only downside was that we arrived on Saturday so the bar quickly ran out of stock and the receptionist couldnt serve all types of drink.

    In summary an excellent location if staying in Istria.

    Very Impressed

    from

    Stayed for 3 nights at the end of September 2006 and was very impressed. Spotlessley clean, contemporary and the staff were just so friendly and helpful.

    Wonderful hotel

    from

    We stayed at the Astoria in late August 2006 just when the peak tourist season was coming to an end. The hotel was not very full and we were upgraded to a suite on the top floor.

    Delightful Hotel

    from

    We stayed at the Design Astoria for one week in September 2006. Although in a superior room, it was small, with only one armchair when we would have expected two for a hotel of this calibre. It was extremely clean and the staff were charming.
