Well. If you think of it post. And thanks anyway.

The only 2 hotels in Old town are Adriatic (right on the main square) and Angelo D`oro. So it must me one of them.

If you want to "chance" arriving in Rovinj without reservations , check out the availability and prices at Porta Antica. They have NICE reduced rates at the last minute! While we passed the apartment office when we were in Rovinj, we checked the prices and were amazed at the last minute specials! We had not booked them from USA because we, too, thought they were a bit pricy.
The location is spectacular!

nannibray. When were you there? We will be there in the middle of October.
That is getting towards their low season. I just do not really want to spend almost $200 a night with parking when there are so many places that are available. The less than three night surcharge adds some to the cost which they may waive if they have vacancies.
I might be able to check on the internet right before we leave home (Oct 5) and maybe they will have special offers.

I went to Trip Advisor and looked at the Rovinj hotel/B & B list and our hotel was Villa Valdibora. We had one of their apartments. Their website did not mention the parking pass (and it still does not.)

We were offered the pass after our first night there. Apparently they did not have an equal number of passes as they had rooms/apartments, someone checked out and we got it.

Rovinj may not offer passes to hotels anymore but it can't hurt to ask.

As I said, maybe in the slow season they are more generous. And it doesn't hurt to ask, you are right.

Sher, something else I had forgotten - we had booked and paid for a cheaper apartment through Porta Antica and when we arrived (it was off season, in April) we were straight away offered a better apartment with a wonderful seaview. We didn't have to pay any extra. The apartment was lovely and we were really pleased. The people managing the properties were very nice.

I have emailed two different requests for information. I know that it is very early. One agent promptly replied and the other has not so far.

I am leaning toward waiting. I could take a list of contacts for apartments that I like and just call them from Budapoest.

It is not like we are arriving directly into Rovinj from the US. This is mid way through our trip.

I just wanted to make a comment. We finally reserved an apartment in the old town Apartment Sorriso. It has a sea view, washing machine and best of all a reserved parking place plus internet.
I have been planning for this trip for so long and it will be over before I know it.
Thanks to all who said to stay in Rovinj, the old town. I had difficulty finding a place on a low floor that had the things that I wanted. So many of the apartmets are on high floors and I have a knee problem that hopefully can get fixed after Jan.
I am looking forward to this trip so much. Well. I look forward to all of my trips.
