This was a fantastic place in Buzet. The small and cozy bed and breakfast made our stay pleasant and just relaxing. Our room was beautiful with the view of the Main Street, the pool was a nice touch also. We enjoyed wines and delicious food at the hotel restaurant and it was the most wonderful time after a full day... More

The hotel is right at the edge of Buzet, right on the old city wall overlooking the valley. It is a slight shame that the road into Buzet passes right in front of the hotel but this is hardly a main highway. Staff were very helpful, hotel has character though this means the rooms are a bit on the small... More

We ate in the hotel restaurant first night and would defiitely recommend. Second night chef had an accident but hotel arranged to get us booked into the only other restaurnt in... More

The hotel is in a historical building right in the old town. The view in front of the hotel over the valley is relaxing and you can enjoy a nice dinner at the hotel restaurant overlooking the valley. The building was extended with modern structures, wellness area and restaurant. Food is delicious, menu mainly based on truffles. Breakfast is also... More

Vela Vrata is a lovely small hotel at the top of Buzet old town. Access isn't the easiest, but well worth it for the view from the hotel terrace. Staff are friendly and attentive. The restaurant prices are higher than a lot of places in Croatia, but the food is excellent. Definitely recommend the chocolate tart!

Cute nice hotel in the castle of Buzet with a great restaurant and friendly staff! Great location to visit both Opatija and Porec seaside on affordable price. Don't miss the private spa opportunity and the different meals with truffles in the restaurant ;)

Stayed one night on our self-drive trip through Croatia. Small, well-appointed rooms. Great in-house restaurant. Indoor pool. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. Helpful, attentive staff. Quaint setting high above new town. Would definitely recommend.

We stayed for 1 night on our way to the Croatian coast. This hotel is located in the pretty old town, up on the hill so it benefits from nice views. The hotel is comfortable with good facilities including an indoor pool which we didn't use but looked really nice. The staff were helpful and friendly. The only downside was... More

Although we did not stay at the Vela Vrata hotel, the meal we ordered at the restaurant was most probably the best meal that we had during our holiday in Croatia. As the Buzet area is famed for its truffles we all decided to have a meal with the truffles - poached eggs with trufffes, pasta with truffles and duck... More
