I booked this hotel based upon write ups in Trip Advisor. It was the right combination of price and location. This is an average hotel in an excellent location. It is in the heart of the Hvar Town. We had a room with a balcony, they are very small. The staff were very pleasant and easy to deal with. The... More

My 7 night stay was booked through Anatolian Sky Holidays ,who in the past have arranged for me countless trips the length and breadth of Turkey. I read countless reviews before departure so was a little anxious what I might find at The Palace. I need not have been concerned. I was allocated a large double room on the 3rd... More

This hotel is supposed to be one of the oldest hotels in Europe, having being inaugurated by the Empress Sissi from Austria and wife of Franz Ferdinand I. It is located right at the main square of Hvar, which can be a good thing since you can easily wheel your luggage from the pier to the hotel and from it... More

This hotel is in a great location and the staff were pleasant. However, our room was so small that one of us had to sit on the bed whilst the other moved about, I had to stand on the bed to open the window ( which was worth the effort as it looked right onto the fortress), no power point... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights beginning of October 2013 and it was probably the worst hotel we stayed in during our 10 day trip through Croatia. The only two good things about this hotel: Top location and great view over the harbour. Everything else was just disappointing. The ancient hotel building looks marvellous and charming, but once...

This hotel is in a favourable position with good views of harbour and town,we did have a harbour view, all being looking from the right of our window was a rather large tree! Our room was comfortable,bathroom reasonable,over all clean and... More

Clean room and great location just off the square Good choice of breakfast although on the first morning i did find a dark curly hair in my pastry. Too many wasps to eat outside - everyone moved inside for breakfast great for walking, cycling and the local wines are just lovely.

Central location, Hvar was a bit noisier and more touristy than we were expecting, but beautiful at the same time. Food in Hvar town was sometimes delicious (Gaixa), sometimes disappointingly average (Mediteraneo), and generally overpriced in comparison to Jelsa and Stari Grad. At the same time, the location of the hotel and the town were great, on top of the... More

The rooms were average but the staff was very good and the location is wonderful. Breakfast very good (can get freshly cooked eggs as you want them) and served on the deck over looking the harbour!! On complaint, WiFi only in lobby, not convenient. Hvar is great, reccomend a day trip to outer island, people were friendly and helpful! Plan... More

In the marvelous city of Hvar we stayed two nights at the Palace, a 3 star hotel in the harbour. Sure, it does not have air conditioning, the elevator is small, the furniture is simple, but in many other ways the hotel provides an excellent service. The rooms are big and comfortable, the breakfast buffett is excellent, staff is corteous... More
