Outdated and inconvenient, June 11, 2010
This review is from: Frommer’s Croatia (Frommer’s Complete Guides) (Paperback)
I usually go with the Lonely Planet for trips abroad, and I came back from Croatia wishing I had stuck to my guns. The maps in this book are inconveniently placed and awkward to use. The price information is either out of date or plain wrong, as I routinely had to double the estimates in the book, even in the off-season. The author seems to be in love with kitschy and pricey food options when there are much better local alternatives. Few relevant details are included about how to find places of interest and navigate from airports and train and bus stations. Finally, the book does not even include a list of helpful phrases that is indicated in its index. I ended up using a Lonely Planet that covered all of Eastern Europe instead of this Croatia-specific guide.

Looks like Rick Steves has replaced Frommers. Sparse, if any, suggested itineraries. Hotel info missing details; like, availability of luggage help at those without elevators. Restaurants lacking ”must try” menu dishes, and availability of live entertainment. We must now rely on ”trip advisor” for the most complete info.

I have always been a frommers fan, and i love how they rate each attraction and restaurant and hotel to guide you to the best ones. The author of this one seems to be more liberal than usual in distributing stars to the attractions…so many of them are “must-see” in her opinion…which admittedly may be true in Croatia, but it would still be nice if there was more variability in the ratings. Other than that, fantastic guide, I will stick to Frommers for my travels.
