We here at Villa Palme welcome you and would like to show you what we have to offer. Villa Palme is a holiday delight, family friendly, and a honeymoon heaven.Located in the quiet center of Opatija, Villa Palme is only 300m to the city center and 350m from the sea.Each apartment at Villa Palme has its very own view of beautiful Kvarner Bay along with views of the islands Krk and Cres. The city of Rijeka provides a stunning backdrop to Kvarner bay - an especially stunning sight to see during the evening hours.
Great view over the bay. Friendly owners. Quiet location. The appartments have cooking facilities and a shower cabin in the bathroom. You need a car to the visit the region, but if you just want to stay in Opatija itself then the Villa is an ideal place to stay. However, it is high up on the foot of the mountain overlooking Opatija so it is not really for elderly people that have difficulty with steep slopes and hills (they will need a car just to get down to Opatija!).
Lack of good tv channels especially news channels (bbc/cnn/cnbc). Parking is a problem. Very difficult to turn the car around once your in and the car park is full. To be fair parking is a problem in the whole of Opatija. Narrow streets, many of them very steep and too many cars. Must be a nightmare in the high-season just to find a parking place for a couple of hours. I once parked in the car park next to the Hotel Imperial and came back to find a parking ticket on my car even though I had 10 minutes left, so beware!! Very few hotels have proper parking facilities so you have to leave the car on the street (hotels with proper garages: Milenji, Wistera, Magnolia, 4 Opatijska Cvijeta). The trash is not emptied for you.
There was terrible smell in our apartment.
Staff was very accomodating and spoke many languages making all clients feel welcome.
Inability to pay by credit card was an inconvenience.
Nice orner and hotel has lovely atmosphere. There is a super market close to hotel so people can buy stuffs and cooking themselves.
The view from our apartment was increadable, million $ view of the whole beautiful Opatia/Rieka Bay. The apartment was implacably clean and comfortable.The owners are sweet, friendly and accommodating. Perfect! The whole setting was just gorgeous!Bravo! We'll come back again.
I wish was one more toilet in the apartment.... But that's all.
