Despite being a very large island indeed, there are only slightly more than 20 hotels on Krk. The reason for this is that historically, in Croatia and by extension in the countries of the former Yugoslavia, flats have been the main accommodation facilities for tourists. However, given the expansion of tourism that Krk has been experiencing since the late 1990s to the present day, a number of hotels have been built to cater for even the most demanding tourists.
Hotels on Krk can be found scattered more or less throughout the island’s coastal resorts, starting with Malinska, on the west coast, where there are no less than six. They are all of a high standard, spacious and recently built, and many are located directly by the sea, making them ideal for those seeking maximum comfort.
Other smaller establishments can be found in the historic centre of Krk town, although they maintain high quality standards. Some of them are boutique hotels located in the city centre, others are sea view hotels.
Another resort on the island of Rab where hotels are plentiful is Baska, located on the south coast. Here there are a few small family-run establishments and no less than three resorts of the Croatian Valamar chain, offering an exclusive ambience with all the comforts of a holiday resort, such as a swimming pool, all-inclusive service and animation.
Generally speaking, Krk hotels are expensive, but the services are excellent. Smaller, family-run establishments are also high-priced, especially since they are always located close to the sea and the most tourist resorts. Since the expense will be high, always remember to carefully check the reviews of the hotel you are about to choose, so that you have the opinion of guests who have already stayed there and avoid any nasty surprises.
