3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We had read reviews before arriving so knew it was dated and had no air con. We are a family of 4 with 2 teens. Porterage to and from the hotel to the port was handy and helpful. The 2 rooms were quite spacious, the fan and windows made the afternoon breeze cool the room to a comfortable level. You... More

No air conditioning in 34 degree temperatures! In desperate need of refurbishment! Great location but not worth it!! DON'T STAY HERE!!! Breakfast is terrible, nice views from restaurant but don't make up for the selection of bad food!!! Trip advisor is asking me to say more.....I have no more to say it's that awful!!

Oh dear... Thanks to TripAdvisor, we kind of knew what we were in for, but are optimists, and thought, how can a place really be that bad and still operate? Sadly -- it really was! First - the good points, location and breakfast are both excellent. Although sitting outside, my breakfast did seem to be attracting wasps. My boyfriends however... More

This is a shack not a palace. One of the worst places to stay in hvar, the rooms are small, outdated, boiling and without ac. The rooms are not cleaned properly with shower gels and towels not replaced. The wifi is a joke. Breakfast is very basic, overpriced and not worth the 200+ euros we were charged. The only redeeming... More

This hotel is really outdated. Nothing has been changed since the 50s/60s from the looks of the rooms. There is no air conditioning and breakfast was poor. The hotel was very noisy and attracted large stag dos so not ideal if you were a couple or family visitor. The only thing that made this hotel a good choice is its... More

Despite the bad comments on Tripadvisor, we still went for it. The only nice aspects about this hotel are the location and the history behind it. Then come the awful rooms, ugly decoration. No AC, while 40 degres ! Rooms look more like large fridges ! The Wifi was very bad. The staff at the front desk just don't care... More

The staff tried very hard to help and make a good impression but it is unbelievable that until nowadays with the value they charge from us nothing was renewed. Old furniture, things are crashing, ventilator/fan , mini bar and WiFi are ilusional and NO AIR CONDITIONER, I've read that before going but I thought as I lived 30 years in... More

All the reviews here mention how there is no air con. We stayed here for 3 nights this week, fully aware that there would be no air con but though it would be fine. It may be ok in the cooler months but in the summer, when it's 35 degrees, the air con is strongly needed. You emerge from your... More

Extremely disappointing stay with palace hvar hotel, small boiling room with no air con, room was stifling when we checked in, windows situated at an awkward angle, difficult to open and close. except for the excellent location there is absolutely nothing redeeming about this overpriced hotel. The rooms are not cleaned inspite of putting the 'clean my room' sign, towels... More

The location of this hotel is excellent but that's about all that is good! The hotel is very dated and does not look like it has been updated for a long time. Room are tired, bathrooms poor quality and the corridors & communal areas could do with updating as well. The hotel doesn't have air con & the fan in... More
