This hotel looked old and glamourous from the outside with a beautiful terrace restaurant overlooking the port. Breakfast was great every morning with cooked and European options. A good mix of guests at the hotel set in the beautiful town meant the palace was very central for when we arrived on our catamaran. Staff were also waiting for us with... More

Perfect location, friendly staff, clean rooms, full breakfast buffet, yes the rooms (in particular bathrooms) could be updated but I understand this takes time and money. Stayed end of May 2014, heard a little noise from outside however not enough to disturb my sleep. I can imagine it may be louder in July/August. If you have time definitely consider renting... More

My partner and I stayed here during the last week of May 2014. The hotel is perfectly situated right in the heart of Hvar, and only 2minutes from the ferry port. All bars and restaurants are literally seconds away. The hotel itself is visually stunning from the exterior - however, internally the rooms are dated. However they are clean and... More

Ok a palace it is not, but for location, you couldn’t ask for better. Right smack bang in the centre of Hvar’s main square, next to the ferry. Our room was clean and basic. No frills to speak of. Typically average. Please be warned that air conditioning is not offered here. We visited in May and the room was warm... More

We stayed one night in The Palace and we were happy with hotel. Its located in the perfect location right off the main square. The room itself was good although in need of a bit of a refurb. We had a lovely view out the window. The bathroom was quite small though. Breakfast was included with the room which was... More

To be right on the main square of the town of Hvar makes this hotel an excellent place to stay. The rooms are a little tight, a little tired, and the bathrooms probably need refurbishing, but it's clean and the staff is nice. But, as stated, what you're getting is location, location, location and I think it's well worth it.

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
