I bought special offer for good price for my family with a thought just to have peaceful weekend. We had a great two nights. Rooms are little bit smaller but I think that they give us lower level because of the good offer so this is ok for the price. Swimming pool is clean but most of the time there... More

Motovun is a picturesque medieval town built on top of a cone-shaped hill with a flat plateau, its urban lines originating from a prehistoric hill-fort with the inscriptions beside the Venetian heraldic and leonidic symbols of the interior mantle on the ground-floor of the Renaissance fort, where Kastel Hotel is located. You can have a walk around the castle walls... More

We stayed one night at this hotel. It was a fabulous battery charger, with a pool to cool down in and other spa services offered. The views from this hotel are wonderful as it is situated at the top of a hill.

The little city of Motovun is "per se" a fabulous setting, with its position, its views, it's like stepping into a fairytale. So, Hotel Kastel must be something special, being located on the very top of the hill, surrounded by glorious views, a renovated hotel in an authentic medieval castle. Not all the rooms have this fabuolous view, at first... More

Other reviews say the basics so I will just speak to specifics. We booked the balcony room. Based on pictures I thought there was only 1. The rod iron one on the top floor. (2nd, not 3rd). We were offered a room on floor 1. When I questioned the staff she assured me it was a balcony room. It was,... More

Five nights here confirmed that this was the perfect base from which to visit all parts of the Istrian peninsular. The staff were exceptional and the facilities such as pool and garden were very adequate after days of exploration. The restaurant was good. The bedrooms clean and quiet. It might not be ideal for those unable or unwilling to walk... More
