We spent the night of July 22 at the Hotel Malin on the island of Krk, Istria. We arrived in the middle of the afternoon and went promptly to our room, a pretty plain one with a balcony featuring an expansive view of the Adriatic. Room service was called, and we were soon enjoying plates of delicious ham, cheeses, olives and a wonderful tuna salad drenched in olive oil – all for less than $30. That was the best thing about the Hotel Malin, other than the exceptional service. Otherwise, our room was typical Howard Johnson’s and for the price, more than $225 for the night with breakfast, more than a little bit high for Istria. Ah well, summer in Croatia, where German license plates outnumber the locals by two to one.
