I was here because I have some business in koper and I was well received and the stay ran normally. The room was acceptable, the price too. The center of Koper is very close 5 minutes walk. Fantastic restaurant with very good food. By the way the best restaurant in town.

The stay wasn't a disaster, but this really is not a professionally run hote. It is integrated with what seems a popular restaurant and the restaurant seems to be the main business. I was going to be arriving between 9-10pm so as a precaution I thought I'd let them know by phone ahead of time. They couldn't find my reservation. Eventually they did and assured me someone would be at the desk. Arriving about 9.45pm I walked in to find no one at the desk. Upon ringing the bell, someone came out from the adjacent restaurant. They had their reservations on an old ledger, handwritten. The guy again couldn't find the reservation. He then called another guy from the restaurant who seemed to have more of a clue. It became clear why they couldn't find my reservation both in person and over the phone- my name had been scribbled at the top of the page in a tight space and was barely legible. They then told me where to go to my room, said the door was open and the key inside- the room was in an adjacent building. It was not open it was locked! I knocked on the door next to mine, where there was a phone number, thus indicating the guy in that room was associated with the hotel. He spoke no english but in sign language told me to go down and get the key. Evidently he didn't have it. I went back down to the adjacent building, again found no one in reception, again rang the bell. This time no one came from the restaurant so I went into the restaurant. The guy insisted the key was in the room and the guy I spoke to was "crazy'...his word!. We went up together to find the room locked. I was then left standing there, now at 10.15pm while he went off to find the key. Eventually I got into the room. On checkout when I went to pay, the lady at the desk, probably the 'working hours' receptionist wanted to charge me 7%'s only when I showed her my booking confirmation that she said 'ah yes you have the old rate' and charged me the appropriate amount. Like I said not a disaster, but I've rarely had any place where reception didn't have the key!!

The hotel is located 10 minutes walk from the main bus station. The first time is a bit difficult to find the way to the main station..Bus stop is 5 minutes walk. My room was big and confortable.You can have braekfast outside in the garden.

I have been here because of sport event. You can come here with car, the hotel has parking. Also the centre of Koper is not far away, so you can walk it there. I was very surprised about the room, it was very modern and in one word great. But bathroom was kind of need of repair. So if you want luxury and you are picky about everything, this is not hotel for you. I also had breakfast here, and you can choose from a lot of meals.

since I only pay attention on the matrices and the cleanest of the toilet, few times I have visited this hotel I have to admit it did not prove its value. Any guest should realise that it is not a 5 star hotel, however the bed and the cleanness should be imperative.

The hotel rooms have recently been renovated and were very nice. I had an excellent meal in the hotel restaurant, they serve simple Italian style dishes that are typical of the he area. The complimentary breakfast had a wide variety of foods, including a cook top to make your own fresh bacon and eggs. It was a pleasant 20 minute walk along the river to the city centre.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for five nights. Its location is good if you want to take day-trips by bus or car to neighboring towns (Piran, Isola, Trieste) which we did. The bus is a five minute walk away. There is also a mall close by. The walk to the center of Koper is about 25 minutes. The hotel restaurant has great, well-priced food and friendly staff and I recommend eating here. We ate there twice during our stay. The hotel internet was unreliable and seemed to work only off-peak hours and not in the mornings and evenings where most people where in the hotel. The room was clean upon arrival but the daily upkeep was so-so. Basically they only made the bed and took the towels we wanted replaced, but didn't always replace with clean ones. We managed fine and we probably wouldn't have noticed if we would have stayed there for only a couple of days.

Ate here at the restaurant nothing fancy..simple traditional dishes, had the grilled seafood (Squid) was very plain no sauce with it, just lemon and french fries..would recommend other places but if you're staying at the hotel it's not bad as the restaurant is just down stairs.

I stayed in this hotel for one night and it was a really nice experience. I was told by the owners that they are starting the renovation of the rooms soon (since they are a little outdated) and they are making a great effort. The beds are comfortable, staff is friendly and the restaurant food is great.

I was really impressed by the value you get for your money, because the prices are quite low compared to other hotels in the area. Overall, my stay was very pleasant, the staff was really nice and the rooms were clean. I stayed only for two nights, but next time I visit Koper I will definitely choose this hotel again! I would also highly recommend their restaurant. The food is really tasty and they have a great selection of wines.
