Why not rent a villa in Rovinj?
How about a fabulous B&B? Try
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. There is no youth hostel in Rovinj (the only Istrian youth hostel is in Pula) but there are a few cheap hotels and a lot of private accommodation that provides good value for money.
The most desirable places to stay in Rovinj are in the Old Town and on the foot of the Zlatni Rt forest park. There are also residential neighbourhoods outside the Old Town which can be a good choice for its easy parking.
Staying in the Old Town is vastly preferable if you'll be coming by bus to Rovinj as your room or apartment is likely to be within walking distance of the Rovinj bus station. 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.
There are two five-star hotels and two four-star hotels and scattered private accommodation at the foot of the wooded Zlatni Rt 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.
North, south and east of the Old Town are neat, manicured streets with a number of buildings that have been turned into small hotels and apartments. 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.
