Rovinj makes a great base to explore the rest of Istria even if accommodation in Rovinj is a little pricier than in other places along the Istrian coast. But you get a lot for your money! You can choose to stay in the old town, in an elegant resort district or on an island. Plus, the five-star hotels in Rovinj set a standard for the rest of the country. Check out Rovinj's three five-star hotels:

Hotel Grand Park

Hotel Grand Park Rovinj
Opened in 2019, the Grand Hotel Park may be the most luxurious hotel in Croatia. Created by the award-winning Pierre Lissoni of Milan's Lissoni Architecture, the unique cascading structure blends with the landscape and makes it seem smaller than it actually is. 193 rooms and 16 suites with a sea view spread over six floors decorated with works of art. Each room is a work of art, equipped with large windows looking out over the bay to Rovinj. The ground floor on Lungomare Plaza is a favorite of locals who come to shop in one of the designer stores or dine in one of the hotel's six fine restaurants. The Albaro Wellness & Spa facilitiies offer three swimming pools, five saunas and treatment rooms that pamper the body with traditional Istrian plants and folk medicines. Accepted into the prestigious Leading Hotels of the World, the Grand Hotel Park is worth a trip to Rovinj if only to experience it.


Hotel Lone

Hotel Lone, Rovinj

Located in the resort district north of Zlatni Rt forested park, the Hotel Lone is surrounded by old growth pine trees with the Adriatic glimmering a few hundred meters away. The design is modern but in a warm, comforting way. The white, black and lustrous oak of the lobby area is carried over into the rooms, each of which has a park or sea view and a balcony.


Hotel Monte Mulini

Hotel Monte Mulini
The Hotel Monte Mulini was the first five-star hotel in Istria and it continues to raise the bar for luxury and fine service. It's now a member of the prestigious Leading Hotels of the World and has won numerous international awards for its design, service, outstanding restaurant and superlative beach club. Also in the resort district next to the Hotel Lone, the hotel is within easy reach of Zlatni Rt and the old town.


There is no youth hostel in Rovinj (the only Istrian youth hostel is in Pula) but there are a few budget hotels and a lot of private accommodation that provides good value for money.

Where to Stay in Rovinj

Map of Rovinj

The choice is easy: do you want a resort experience, views of the sea, proximity to the beach? Or, would you prefer to be close to the center of the action to wander old streets, duck into a cafe and sample local restaurants?

Stay in Rovinj's Old Town

Staying in the Old Town is vastly preferable if you'll be coming by bus to Rovinj or on the Venice-Rovinj ferry as your room or apartment is likely to be within walking distance of the Rovinj bus station. In addition to Rovinj's sights, there are a lot of bars, cafes and restaurants within the Old Town which makes it a great choice for nightowls. The morning life is interesting too; get up early and you can watch the fishermen bring in their catch.

The disadvantage of staying in the Old Town is that there is no parking whatsoever within the pedestrian streets. Parking is in a vast lot outside the Old Town, near where ferries from Venice dock. Parking in Rovinj is not cheap either. Count on paying 5 Kn/hour (about $1US). If you can manage to get parking included in your accommodation price, you'll save some real money.

Stay Near the Old Town

North, south and east of the Old Town are neat, manicured streets with a number of buildings that have been turned into apartment rentals. For the most part, it's only a 20-minute walk to the Old Town and the prices are a little cheaper. You may find a private swimming pool in some establishments and parking is usually much easier.

Stay in the Resort District

There are two five-star hotels (the Hotel Lone and Monte Mulini), two four-star hotels and scattered private accommodation at the foot of the wooded Zlatni Rt (Golden Cape) or Punta Corrente Park. If you're looking for a beach holiday, this is the place for you as you'll be only steps away from Lone Beach and the string of swimming coves on Zlatni Rt. It's about 1.5km from the Old Town, but the coastal promenade makes for a pleasant walk.
