Remisens Premium Hotel Kvarner
The very first purpose-built Adriatic hotel, Kvarner has been opened in 1884. and renovated in 2014. As a CEE CEE participant you’ll follow the footsteps of His Majesty, Austrian emperor Franz Joseph I, dancer Isadora Duncan and hundreds of other famous people who shaped the world’s history during 124 years of Remisens Premium Hotel Kvarner’s existence.
This neoclassic 4-star hotel is widely known for its glorious Crystal Hall, considered the most prestige ballroom in the region due to its beauty. It is an awesome architectural sight and still the largest of its kind in Opatija. Furthermore, the glorious terrace, situated just above the Lungomare promenade, is offering a magnificent sea view. If the weather is good, this will surely be the preferred meeting spot for a lot of attendees.
Remisens Premium Grand Hotel Palace
No less illustrious than the conference venue is Remisens Premium Grand Hotel Palace, well-known neo-baroque masterpiece, one of the most recognizable historical landmarks of Opatija. This is where our welcome party will happen in the evening of January 23rd and where probably the most of conference attendees will be conveniently accommodated during their Opatija visit.
This hotel is famous for unmatched sea view from its high-ceiling rooms and it has been renovated in 2016. That project boasted the image of the hotel and turned it to one of the most prestige 4-star accommodations in the city, enhanced with new features, ranging from a wellness centre to Tesla charger for the electric vehicles. Immediately above the most famous Opatija beach, Slatina, and short 10 minutes walk from the conference venue it will greatly contribute to the splendid CEE CEE and Opatija experience.
Remisens Premium Heritage Hotel Imperial
Just a year younger than Hotel Kvarner, recently reopened and restored Remisens Premium Heritage Hotel Imperial, a beautiful building in Secession style will host the Thursday lunch. Conveniently located just across the street from the conference venue, this magnificent building was originally named in 1885. after the Belgian princess and Austrian crown princess Stephanie.
This year’s renovation thoroughly updated all accommodation units, as well as communal areas and the restaurant. Also, guests benefit from new wellness centre with relax zone, spa zone and fitness centre. Finally brought again to its Austro-Hungarian glory, albeit with all up-to-date commodities essential in the modern world, this hotel will fully enhance the grandeur of Opatija and make your stay there during CEE CEE more enjoyable.
