Beautiful balcony view

This hotel was in a lovely area with beautiful views and scenery. There was a ferry boat into Stari grad if you didn't want to walk and the nearby beach was clean, quiet and the water a lovely blue. Breakfast was easy, and there was a bar where you could have speciality cakes and ice creams. The service was good & efficient. If you want a chilled out holiday then this is the place for you .

Worse hotel in hvar. Has a reputation for it too!!

I've traveled all over and this was the most disgusting hotel room I've ever stepped foot in. Basically a kids summer camp turned nasty hotel once in a while! Even the girl working the desk admitted to it being "not very nice". Outdated is putting it lightly. I couldn't have slept in bed if I was paid. Was on trip with boyfriend and we were looking for something in or near hvar. Website is totally useless and plays up location etc. 40 min from hvar via taxi on windy road in middle of random town. It was a nightmare. Luckily we found a room at the hotel Adriana in hvar town but we we're miserable the one night we stayed there. They put us up in their "nicer" hotel just down the path which was also really gross. Just don't stay here unless you're a child with a large group looking for a camp getaway.
