If you're looking for somewhere to stay in Hvar on a budget, this is your place. About a 3 minute walk (uphill) from the sea front. 5 minutes from HulaHula, & 5 from Carpe, you don't need to venture any further than that. Great place for groups looking for something more classy than a 'lads' holiday but still a place... More

Stayed for 2 nights whilst sampling the nightlife of Hvar with friends (2 couples). Good location on the hillside up from the harbour, which minimises the need for a gym! Overall, first impression is that the hotel is a little dated, and could certainly do with a bit of modernisation. We were essentially using the hotel as a place to... More

Having read loads of reviews about this hotel, we were imagining the worst. However, the hotel is absolutely fine. It's 2* hotel, and that's exactly what you get. The pool is clean and clear, the staff are friendly and the rooms are adequate! The location is good as it's a short walk to the town but far enough away to... More

I have just recently got back from 5 nights staying at the Hotel Pharos and from previously reading the tripadvisor reviews I was a little apprehensive to say the least. All in all I really enjoyed my stay at the Hotel; The staff at reception and around the pool were extremely friendly and willing help with any issue. On our... More

Horrible smell around hotel, warm beers from pool bar, smelly room, no air con, Mosquitos rife, unable to provide a cup of t or coffee at 9pm. No refund, checked out after 1 night after a mere 2 hours sleep! In general, could deal with dated room but getting eaten alive all night in a room that was more like... More

After reading the reviews I was worried about staying here! But it really was just fine! Room cleaned everyday and the room was basic but perfect. We had a balcony facing the sea which was beautiful! We stayed in the block of rooms called Tamaris although Mimosa rooms are bigger. The room is hot but you're on holiday, it will... More

Friendly and accommodating staff. Ideal location for all the main areas of Hvar, both night life and day time entertainment. We came as a group and found it to be perfect for the location. In between both the night life and day time activities

From previous reviews we planned for the worse however we were suprised when we arrived that the facilities were not as bad as mentioned in other reveiws. Rooms very basic and small and only 1 plug socket. Pool area was sufficient. Bar area was basic, however... More

Upon checking in i went to reception to see if i could change rooms but was told i couldn't as hotel was full. On a positive note the pool... More
