This hotel is not worth the money we paid. Firstly - to be fair - the location is great and very close to the centre of town and ferry. However, we saw many other places very nearby that would be just as good and I'm sure would be better value. The hotel is run down, noisy and the rooms have... More

Eventhough location wise is perfect, the hotel is falling apart. Everything is broken, old, moldy & smelly. It's definitely not worth what you have to pay for it, staff is pretty helpful though. The parking lot is located 15 minutes away (walking) and unless you want to pay for parking is pretty much the only choice you have.

This hotel is perfectly located at the end of the pier in Hvar. The view is gorgeous over the harbour (from sea-view rooms) and from the terrace (lovely spot for breakfast). Unfortunately the location is just about all this hotel has going for it. The rooms are a decent size but are really really dated. There's no air conditioning and... More

Have recently had a 3 night stay at the palace, room 306 and wow, what a view. We had a small but adequate balcony and was over looking the port and get the sun at any time of the day. Perfect Rooms are a little dated but tidy and functional, not overly bothered as was either out side enjoying hvar... More

After reading some reviews I was a little dubious about this hotel! My husband and I stayed here for 1 night and found it to be fine, we could have stayed a few nights no problem. Our room was clean with all the amenities we needed (fridge, mini bar, hairdryer etc) yes it was a little dated but really for... More

Friendly service and nice breakfast. Room was small and run down but clean. The hotel is in a great location and if you are planning to just use this as a base then it's excellent, plenty of places to eat out so we didn't try the evening meal.

Disappointing altogether. The room was so small my husband and I had to shuffle past each other as if in a crowded train. No air con and very hot and stuffy. The decor is dated and repairs patchy. The toilet paper dispenser had toilet paper jammed in a hole to keep it from falling down. Internet was almost non existent... More

Under average food with sky high prices to match the impressive looking menu. The service was terrible, after ordering we waited an hour for our food: my pasta was cold and hard, I received no plate for my mussels and no water basin as I also ordered shrimp. Another friend of mine was given the wrong dish. When it came... More

The Palace Hotel is in an unbeatable location. It's right on Hvar marina, next to bars, shops, the old town etc, you really couldn't ask to be better placed. However (I'm sure this will echo many previous reviews), the location is it's only real selling point. The hotel is quite dated, I understand some of it has been refurbished but... More

Stayed at The Palace for two nights in July 2014. Location is great, as it is centered in the middle of everything. Our room was not "up-to-date", but we didn't spend any time at the hotel during the day, so it didn't matter much. If you need a room for a day or two, its a ok place to sleep,... More
