Claudia checked us in at the main office which was nearby at the main hotel. She was very helpful and tried to find us some free parking, as parking in the main lot can get expensive. After she escorted us to our sea view studio apartment, she provided us with recommendations on food and drink in Rovinj. The sea view of the harbor is wonderful and accurately protrayed in the photos on Expedia. The room was small, but adequte. Overall, our stay was nice.
Vila Lili is a nice, reasonably-priced hotel about 10 minutes walk from the busy waterfront district of Rovinj. Breakfast is included, there is free WiFi service. The manager was very nice and very helpful. We heard him speak Croatian, Italian, German and English to various guests.
My boyfriend and I spent a week at Hotel Lone and we had an absolutely fantastic time, I never wanted to leave! The hotel is beautifully designed with a modern and sleek feel, the bedrooms and bathrooms are a very good size with especially large beds and baths, and the outside areas (pool, beach, gardens etc) are well designed and very clean.
The food in the a la cart restaurant is beautifully crafted and the menu offers some genuinely distinctive and creative dishes and the prices are very reasonable for what you get. Unfortunately I do think the restaurants lack some atmosphere, in fitting with the overall design of the hotel the restaurant is quite stark, it looks nice enough but it lacks something. Although the outside space is beautiful!
One design flaw is the large glass pane between the bedroom and the bathroom. Although it is frosted glass and is obscured by some wooden slats at the wrong angle you can see a slither of the bathroom which isn't ideal. It also means that if you use the bathroom in the night and turn the bathroom light on the whole bedroom is lit up - my boyfriend is a very light sleeper so I had to use the toilet in the dark!
The service at the buffet breakfast and in the bar is not brilliant, but the rest of the staff (cleaners, reception, waiting staff in the restaurants were brilliant; very helpful and very polite.
Overall though I would highly recommend Lone and although I said I'd never go to the same place twice I will definitely be going back!

Lone Hotel is a member of Design Hotels. Lone Hotel is a business class design hotel that, aside from excellent service and …More
I have no hesitation to recommend this hotel. Large comfortable rooms with extraordinary beautiful sea view and balconies; inventive shef; a variety of tasty food for breakfast; a large park and a beach in front of the hotel. But perhaps the best bit is high quality service. All staff members are polite, helpful and cheerful.
