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.

I have spent 16 days at this hotel with my family. When you see this hotel for the first time, you have the impression that you are back in the 70's (of 20th century) when the communist regime governed the country (Ex Yugoslavia). The building is so large that it dominates the entrance of the Gulf of Stari Grad, and... More

hotel is simple, old fashioned, once may become a retro, it is simply furnished, but I totally disagree with all those excited "horrible" and "terrible" reviews. Hotel has a good location directly on the beach, beautiful Stari grad is reachable on foot via pleasant walk on promenade, nice views from the rooms, pool, terraces etc. Prices are very competitive. good...

This hotel is really really bad. I mean there is nowhere quite so bad to stay on the planet. The rooms are cramped, old fashioned(in a bad way), smelly and dangerously hot. There is no air conditioning anywhere in the hotel. The staff are rude. When we stayed there we had to keep the balcony door open as it was... More

My girlfriend and I decided to book the hotel Arkada for a week whilst visiting Croatia. This was meant to be our luxury week after travelling around hostels in Bol. This was supposed to be as luxurious as we could afford (being students). However I have never seen anything quite like it. Simply shocking. The hotel itself is a 30... More

We stayed 3 nights in July 2013 in a room with balcony. The hotel seems to be from a different age. The room had no airconditioning and because the balcony is accessible (not easy in any way, but still) from the other rooms, we had to close the door during the day, leaving an extremely warm room when we got...

We chose this hotel because they offered the cheapest half board for 7 days (250 euros per person) at Croatian coast during full season, so we did not expect anything special. But we were positively surprised- old but clean hotel, average room with TV and good selection of food for breakfast and dinner. Around the hotel beautiful beaches and nature...... More

A large hotel set back from two stony beaches about fifteen minutes walk from Stari Grad, it is a hotel in a time warp set around 1970. It has a nice seawater swimming pool with a bar cake cafe next to it, there is an indoor pool but it is not open during the months of July and August. The... More
