We stayed for 2 nights in June in a standard double. We had a few problems here. The room was too hot, there was no air con and the fan provided was loud and ineffective. Having the window open meant that we were then subjected to noise from outside. For example during the night we heard an electronic beeping noise.... More

Loved everything about the Kastel Hotel. I highly recommend it to people traveling to Motovun or Croatia for the first time. We had an outdoor lunch and it was delicious. The staff is great, and there's an overall great vibe throughout the place.

We are travelling along Adriatic sea and stoped in Motovun hill town. This proplerty is the best in the town. Well kept even though the room is small. The surranding of the property is very scenic because it is on the top of the town and was a castle before. If you need to stay in Motovun, it is the... More

This hotel is great, if you don't mind the hike uphill to get there. I suppose the hotel shuttle can pick you up but we walked. The scenery from the top of Motovun is wonderful and you get a continuous stream of it along the way walking up. The hotel is an older property but has been kept up pretty... More

The staff is efficient and welcoming. The room was big, clean and well-equiped with a beautiful view on the central square of Motovun. Parking is available outside the walls... More

In the hotel Kastel I was in the winter, when it is not such a great rush of tourists in Istria. There, my wife and I spent a few days and see how it looks to stand high above the fog that covered the entire area around Motovun, leaving Motovun under the sun rays. The hotel was completely OK, people... More
