Exceptional location, ca. 1 km away from Opatija centre, free outdoor parking, cosy garden with outdoor bar and infinity pool, own stairway down to the sea with a little terrace and sunbeds. The only disadvantage was the height of the room: each is located in the attic, so you had to pay attention constantly not to bump your head against... More

The hotel is set right on the water and reminds you of a movie. Their is no lift and lots of stairs. The carpet in room and corridors need a good clean. The beds are very comfortable. Breakfast is basic but lovely on the terrace. A nice bar overlooking the water. Satisfactory overnight stay.

The restaurant prices is kind of on the expensive side. The breakfast was just delicious with several dishes,fruits etc to... More

Villa Ariston offers fantastic view over the ocean. It is situated on the romantic Lungo Mare or the 14km long walk by the sea, perfect setting for a wedding or a romantic quiet weekend hideaway. This is one of the original Austro-Hungarian villas turned into boutique hotel, run by helpful and very well trained staff, fantastic food, tastefully chosen decoration... More

Our family stayed at Villa Ariston in July 2015 for 3 nights. It was my second visit there. Ariston is elegantly fabulous in many ways. Our Presidential Suite was spacious and classy indeed, breakfasts delicious and service very friendly. The place offers stunning panoramas and the whole atmosphere feels like distinguished "gran turismo", without any unnecessary bling-bling.

Beautiful old character building furnished appropriately. Gardens and terraces for drinks and dining are spectacular having outstanding views of the Adriatic. Situated on the Franje Josipa path leading to downtown and giving even more fantastic views of the water. Restaurant in the hotel looks great but we did not avail ourselves. Breakfast was excellent made even more so by eating... More

We stayed at the Villa Ariston for 3 nights in May in one of the attic rooms. The Villa is located on the Lungo Mare between Lovran and Opatija. Great to be able to walk alongside the sea. There is limited parking. As I am over 6 feet tall I found the attic rooms somewhat cramped, but this did not... More
