About Hotel

Smart Selection Hotel Istra (3*) Opatija provides seafront hotel accommodation along the Adriatic. A short walk down Opatija's main street will put you in the middle of the city center. The Lungomare, Opatija's famous 12 kilometer-long coastal promenade, also leads to the center and offers an up-close view of the Adriatic Sea. The hotel's location is ideal for the traveler who enjoys being close to the hustle and bustle of the city, but also likes the calm and privacy of a beach vacation.

The private beach and indoor swimming pool with heated seawater belonging to this hotel in Opatija are major draws for the economy accommodation, which has 130 rooms. The balconies in Istra's superior rooms provide unmatched views of the sea, exactly what you would expect from a hotel built so close to the water. The beachside bistro and outdoor terrace supply perfect spots for casual dining or a place to get a cold drink. Local, fresh seafood and an extensive wine list highlight the menu. Again, the wondrous sights of the sea add a level of radiance to the experience.

Smart Selection Hotel Istra Opatija offers the priceless natural beauty of the Croatian Adriatic Sea at economy prices. Book now!
