As a group we were supposed to be at the Padova Hotel which was being refurbished but had to go to the Grand Imperial as Padova was not ready. Would of liked to be at the more modern and updated hotel - with balcony, but this was a fair second best but without balcony. Nicely situated on the edge of...

Hotel served an excellent dinner, and the rooms were ever so clean. Maintenence was obviously constantly at high level. Although this is not a new hotel, they certanly do their best to keep the hotel at it's best. If you don't like new sqare-like buildings, this is a place for you (as it was for me). The new wine bar...

The hotel is decently furnished, rooms seemed clean and comfortable (balcony room with sea view). Breakfast and dinner ok but again, nothing special. I would describe the staff in the same way. Had an issue with safe alarm (that was not used) yet could not be fixed as the maintenance worker was not at the hotel. Nevertheless, I would visit...

We are a family of three from Slovenia. We've been at this hotel for several times in 2011, 2012 and 2013. The hotel is good. Friendly stuff, big rooms, everyday cleaning, the own free parking for the guests are a big-big plus. Since last year they lift up their prices, I think it's connected with getting of one more additional...

The best thing about this hotel is location. It is situated very near the old town in a lovely park. Also they have a new swimming pool and lovely terrace. But unfortunately the staff was not pleasant. The hotels is quite old and the rooms are very small. The hotel in the other had has a special charm. The dinning...

We enjoyed a nice two night stay at this property. The room was standard size, nice bed, large windows and a small, but functional bathroom. The hotel is in a great location with a few steps down through a park into old town and harbor. The patio area is very large, with nice, comfortable seating and a large, recently renovated...

We stayed here for one night in early September and it's charming. The lobby is grand for this part of the world and has a nice terrace area for evening drinks. Our standard room was a good size while the bathroom was average. The hotel has a great outdoor pool which also has a jacuzzi, a really nice way to...

On the face of it the hotel is fine, great location walking distance through great woodland direct to Rab old town and harbour. Rooms, service, food is all good. However, the place just lacks some inspiration and feels like an old institution. Examples everywhere from the central bar which has zero atmosphere and on two occasions a barman who looked...

Hotel is situated in very nice garden at very quiet place. On the other side, it is just 10 minutes walk from the crowd of the city center. It has nice, not too big pool. The food is very good and you can always ask for something that is not included and served. Half board is a very good option....
