Very old hotel, with small rooms and NO AIR CONDITION!!! We were supposed to stay there 5 nights and needed to run away as we could not sleep in such heat! The meal was just bellow average too.... I do not recommend it at all!

I've spent 10 days in Hvar, due to a summer school organised by my university. It has been one of the greatest summer ever! The hotel is old fashioned but well equipped for those who have no great demands.

Disgusting hotel. I would not recommend this place to my worst enemy. They do not really like their guests, employees are apathetic and not interested in the business/their jobs. Restaurant is very dirty, stinky rooms, old furniture, wifi is not free and is unstable, no animations, food below average, etc. I would recommend paying extra to go to Hvar town... More

The experience of staying at this hotel for one night nearly made me want to leave Croatia. The rooms are tiny with nowhere to put two suitcases. The whole of the hotel is run down as they cannot afford to refurbish it. None of the rooms had plug sockets and so we were unable to recharge our mobiles except with... More

This hotel caught my eye on google earth search. Big pool, beach, view so we decided to get away from hostel types and stay.........Mistake ! This is a Eastern European package disaster. The place is run down 70's relic. Rooms are tiny, if you pay more for the view, which is fantastic, your room will be a furnace in the... More

Needs total look at again should pay guests to stay here! Food is horrible, room looks like pre-war. I am shocked by staff.'a English and knowledge of area is truly appalling. Sent me to a beach which was a few stones next to a road.

Once good hotel now is example of how things should not be run! Food is total disaster! Rooms are small and old furnished! Not to recommend to anyone! Try to find another accommodation because this one can be really party breaker in any way!

There was broken glass partition on the balcony, and the electrical sockets were broken. The entire hotel felt run down, not a Hotel for the British to go to. One good note, the staff were very friendly and helpful despite the condition of the place itself. My advice: Stay away.
