Villa Rossella 3
Ranked #162 of 228 Speciality Lodging in Rovinj
Reviewed 17 September 2016

My wife and I were about to embark on a tour of Croatia starting from Zagreb. We made a reservation at the Studios Villa Rossella in Rovinj, Croatia and provided my credit card information thinking that we could pay with our card. Shortly after I made the reservation I got an e-mail from the hotel asking that I commit to a time of arrival so someone could be present to check us in or I could telephone a cell number on my arrival and someone would meet us. I didn’t read the fine print at the bottom of their web page so this was when I became aware of the cash only policy of this hotel which also requires a 50 Euro cash damage deposit.
I then had my Zagreb hotel call The Villa Rossella and explained that I was travelling in a strange country and had no idea when I would be arriving and that I didn’t have a cell phone to call them on arrival. I also stated that I wasn’t carrying sufficient money to satisfy their cash requirement and could they accept my credit card and was told they had a strict cash only policy. I was told there was a cash machine not far from the hotel. I replied that it would be costly for me to with draw cash on my credit card and that I would pay a premium to use the card for payment and was refused.
It was at this time I learned that the hotel is 300 to 400 metres from the nearest parking and that it would cost in excess of 20 Euros per day for parking. I told the hotels representative that I couldn’t meet all their demands and asked that my reservation be cancelled. I was then told that I would be charged the full amount of my two night reservation “because of the rate I received”. This was the only rate shown on the web site. Their web site also states, “free cancellation on most rooms”
Based on other reviews for this operator I believe the owner “Boris” makes a habit of taking advantage of unsuspecting tourists that believe they can use their credit cards anywhere.

Room Tip: Be sure to carry a cell phone and lots of cash.

We took our own bikes with us, so it was easy to get to the beach or into the city (~5min. and I think about 15min. by foot).
There's a small pool in the garden behind the house. We stayed at the top floor, so we had a big balcony. The apartment is well appointed (french press, water boiler, different plates/glasses, basic dishes, big fridge with freezer, air-con, TV, towels and bed linen, ...) with 2 bedroom (one with a waterbed) and a bathroom with shower.
You have everything you need and the owner is very friendly and helpful.

Excellent stay. The appartment is very well equipped with two large bedrooms, a large kitchen/dining room and a large bathroom. Fresh towels every day. Much value for money! Two large balconys. As close as you can get to the old town of Rovinj - situated in a faily new, quiet well functioning neighbourhood. Local bakery only two minutes walk away. Freshbaked bread every morning ..! . The appartment is only 15 minutes walk from Rovinj and we did the walk every evening along the Marina. The landlord, Boris, is very nice and helpful in all respects. We normally do not sleep in waterbeds - but actually we liked it very much - and 1 weeks stay turned out to be very good for our backs. Water beds to be recommended for all guests. :)
All in all for stay: Five starts out of five.
