Smart Selection Hotel Residenz

Location is fantastic, but hotel was not clean (lots of stuff under bed, on rug). Pipes showing thru the ceilings, bathroom hot water literally took about 5 minutes to get hot (really thought there was no hot water). Smallest shampoo/soap packet I've ever seen. Towels paper thin. I rarely knock a place, but this didn't deserve 1/2 star. That being said, it was the "1st" weekend of summer and perhaps the place wasn't "really" ready to be open yet. No receptionist, had to go next door, but the much nicer parent hotel next door allowed us to use the pool and our first breakfast there was very nice. Breakfast in our place 2nd am was just okay. If doing it on the really cheap cheap, perhaps...

This hotel is located in a great location. The main Promenade is very close. Rooms were very small but clean. There was no WIFI available in room. Was barely able to get it in public areas. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good nothing to complain about. We always had lunch and dinner in town. There is a boat dock behind the hotel where daily boat tours are offered. This hotel is reasonable for a short stay at a decent price.

Me and my friends randomly landed in this gorgeous town and couldn't have left happier. It's the perfect place to sit back and relax for a while (not a beach party town, though you can find a little bit of nightlife if you look properly). This hotel was very close to everything and the people are extremely nice, we got there with the intention of staying for two nights and ended up staying for four, can't wait to go back, and I'd definitely try to stay in the same place, great value for what they offer.

The location is good, next to the see and some hunderd meters to the main beach. The rooms are not big, but ok for holiday stay. No air condition, but an electric fan in the room which changed the air quite well when placed by the open balcony door. Street side rooms can be noisy, earplugs are necessary for good sleep, also musc from a disco by the beach can be loud. Breakfast is ok, and the dinner was eatable. From 4 days stay, we had two dinner meals in the hotel. Wi-Fi in public areas only, no coverage in the rooms. The staff was very friendly.

Stayed here for one night during my vacation. Location is great - hotel is located near everything you need. Girl on the reception was very polite and nice. My room was too simple, but had great view! Summa summarum, it's ok experience for that amount of money. :)

ok hotel, with great location, nice and helpful staff, great view, and ok balcon. it is great value for the price. We will come again for sure. Opatija is beautiful and charming place, a hotel Residenz is in the centre.

Upon arrival I thought oh no, this is not good! An old and quite plain art deco hotel that hasn't had any money spent on it for years. 70's furniture that is a bit shabby and tatty. Old carpets. Noisey plumbing. No air conditioning! I know I should have noticed the missing air con when we booked, but I just assumed..... However, once settled in I liked it. Great location for the town. Really really friendly staff, especially Anna who was very helpful and very pleasant. It is clean (just old) and for the price, I thought very fair. I would definitely recommend this place.

We stayed there because it was cheap and had swimming from the sea front. It is a package hotel for Russians. The other hotels next door in the same hotel group were equally poor

I booked in for a couple of days with IGOR at reception and was assured of a comfortable stay and then it all went down hill, no car parking on site only in the road about 0 .5 km away at 5 kuna an hour, I asked IGOR ( who was devoid of humour) for some 5 Kuna coins to be told he was not a change desk and directed to the hotel next door, they also were rude and unhelpful, in the end I decided to get a parking ticket rather keep walking back and forward to the parking meter, that was suposed to take debit/credit card payments and have English language, both did not work! I went to my room 411 and have never seen a worst room, it stunk and was dirty, I asked for a move and was charged €75 for a double room as they had no other singles available, No aircon, No internet, No tea/coffee making facility, in fact nothing to make you comfortable. I ended up in room 402, please avoid, as the air con in the hotel next door kept me awake all night, needless to say I and my friends only stayed 1 horrific night and then at check out we were charged severel extra taxes on top of the room rate. Never book at this hotel unless you are either mad or desperate.

Adequate for one night if you have nowhere else to go but grim. Forget getting any sleep as live music next door. Would have seen better days quite possibly as a bordello in 1900s - it just has that feel. If bad wallpaper, clunky furniture & yellowing wallpaper is your idea of ambience, great but basics like TV was broken, bathroom v old & lumpy, possibly flea ridden mattresses - kept being bitten. Come here for great views of Kvaerner Gulf or come here to die (without the luxury of air conditioning). And yes parking is a problem but that is generally the case in Opatija town. Just do not come here with a 6 month old baby & a 2 yr old who are excellent travellers but this was a bit hard on us!
