The hotel is over 100 years old. It has traditions and a very solid image. The view from balcony and restaurant is unbelievable. The rooms are great and sunny. You need definitely a room to the seaside and at least 1 upper floor or higher. The restaurant is also very good. Some problems with the parking of the car. There...

Staying at Hotel Bristol was like going back in time to an era of grand opulence - high-ceilinged dining halls with ornate chandeliers, big bedrooms with balcony overlooking the sea... Some reviewers have called it dated, but it's a case of understanding what it is and accepting it for that, or going elsewhere. We were perfectly happy, despite being cooped...

We did arrive a little early (12.40 pm) and were not allowed to check in before 2 pm. The parking situation is disastrous, either you pay 10 Euro (garage)/ 8 Euro outside per day or you have to find a public parking space which is virtually like winning the lottery. Many people have written about the charm of this hotel....

Excellent location. Perfect see view. However, the entire property needs major face lift. It is my understanding that some rooms are being upgraded (definitely not the case with ours), but it feels like it's been neglected for 30-40 years. Dated furniture, carpeting, walls etc. In addition, the hotel does not have direct access to the beach. You have to walk...

We were expecting a bit more so were initially disappointed with the room - our sea view room wasn't really overlooking the sea as the room was on the side of the hotel on the ground floor and instead of a double bed we had a pair of single beds pushed together, however the nice man at the reception helped...

Hotel Bristol has a long history in Lovrans tourism and it shows remains of several phases - what we enjoyed most was the beautiful building, the fantastic location right at the Lungomare and at the sea and especially the nicely renovated room we stayed at (a spacious corner room with seaview, lovely balcony and a stunning view)- reminding us of...

This is definitely an older hotel and the rooms could use a little updating, however, what you get for the amount you pay is pretty great. The price of the room included breakfast and a dinner buffet including beer and wine. The food was tasty and the service was quite good. The patio was beautiful with a great view and...

We booked this apartment adjoining the Bristol Hotel called Remisens Villa Belvedere through booking .com. The place was difficult to find even with a Garmin. There was no parking on the property which was jam packed with cars. We had to pay and park on a private lot. The apartment was brand new no elevator we were on the 2nd...
