Hotel Adriatic

Hotel Adriatic

Housed in a building dating back to 1892, this intimate boutique hotel in the Adriatic city of Rovinj features high ceilings, original period decor, and an eclectic design scheme that’s modern yet in keeping with the property’s history. All of the 18 individually styled and sophisticated rooms assure views of Katarina Island on one side or Rovinj’s main square, old town, and rooftops on the other. Each has white walls, charcoal gray furniture, and paintings or photographs commissioned by contemporary artists. Amenities include comfortable beds with high thread count linens, flat screen TVs, air conditioning, and bathrooms with black and white tiled flooring and spacious walk-in showers.

Elsewhere, you’ll find a ground floor restaurant serving a French Riviera-inspired and international menu prepared with fresh, local, and seasonal Croatian ingredients. There’s also a relaxed bar for coffee, cocktails, and one of the country’s widest whisky selections. Given its historic nature, facilities here are somewhat limited. However, you will have complimentary access to the indoor and outdoor pools and the wellness and spa area at sister property Hotel Lone, just a 20-minute walk away.

Rooms

Available in varying sizes and categories, the 14 rooms and four suites are individually styled and feature charcoal gray furniture, white walls, and paintings or photographs commissioned by contemporary artists. Complete with views of Katarina Island on one side or Rovinj’s main square, old town, and rooftops on the other, all have a comfortable bed with high thread count linens, flat screen TV, air conditioning, tea and coffee-making facilities, and bathroom with black and white tiled flooring and spacious walk-in shower.

The larger Suites offer more space and have separate living areas, sofa beds, and preferred views across the main square and the waterfront.

Location

Located on Marsala Tita Square in the heart of old town, you’ll be within easy distance of Rovinj’s narrow cobbled alleyways, quaint shops, characterful buildings, and historic landmarks. A regular boat to Katarina Island departs from the port opposite the hotel. The nearest public beach is a ten-minute walk away.

Food and drink

Indoor and outdoor seating is available at Brasserie Adriatic, the hotel’s ground floor restaurant that offers views across the waterfront and the main square. You can enjoy a French Riviera-inspired and international menu prepared with fresh, local, and seasonal Croatian ingredients. For coffee, wine, and evening cocktails, Caffe Bar Adriatic is a relaxing spot.

Facilities and activities

Due to the historic nature of the building, facilities are somewhat limited. However, you will have complimentary access to the indoor and outdoor pools and the wellness and spa area at Hotel Adriatic’s sister property, Hotel Lone, a 20-minute walk away.

Accessibility

While the hotel has an elevator, there are no accessible rooms. Please note that many of the cobblestone streets in Rovinj are uneven and can get slippery on rainy days. Rovinj’s old town can be difficult to navigate for those with limited mobility.

Our opinion

Located in the heart of Rovinj’s old town, this boutique hotel ticks the boxes for excellent personal service, thoughtful interiors, and specially commissioned artworks. It is one of the Istrian Peninsula’s most desirable places to stay.
