Friendly staff, pleasant decoration, good ambient. Minor upgrade of breakfast would bring it to 5. View is excellent. Rooms just right. Beds are superbe. We did not went to in house restaurant. Seemed like it should be good. See you next time.

We did not stay in the hotel but arrived in Buzet about lunch time and decided to have lunch on their pretty outdoor terrace. The chicken salad was unexpected but tasty. A sliced freshly grilled chicken breast on top of layers of potato, cucumber tomatoes and parmesan. Very nicely presented and delicious. Buzet is quieter and less overrun than some... More

Just spent 2 days & enjoyed the hilltop old town location. It was surpassed by excellent staff & comfortable beds in upscale furnishings. Tastefully designed & wouldn't hesitate to recommend....add the restaurant & the delicious local Istra dishes....heaven!!!

This hotel is perfect place if you want to enjoy in everything. If You want to explore it is on the perfect position. In the old city on the top of the hill where every destination in Istria is 30-45 minutes away. If You want to eat also perfect place. We had homemade tagliatelle with fresh black truffle, lamb in...

We have mixed impressions about this hotel after we spent a great weekend in Istra. Hotel Vela Vrata is situated in a great place, just in the middle of the old town Buzet- which is, btw. a great town to be located if one wants to explore and enjoy inland Istra. The Hotel is quite new and looks very charming.... More

It is unfortunate that I only stayed for one night is this delightful hotel as it would be a perfect place to relax for a few days. It's location in the charming hill town of Buzet is perfect. A perfect base for exploring the beautiful surrounding countryside. The room was delightful, with a few carefully chosen antiques to lift it... More

A slog on bikes to get there, but when you do, it is well worth it. While our room was nice, the view (looking at someone's wall) could have been a whole lot better had we paid extra. Regardless, the hotel staff were excellent. Additionally, the food was pretty good - I was expecting a lot worse considering some reviews.... More

The only reason for two stars instead of one, is our waitress and the quality of meat. Other than that the portions were extremely (and I would underline that if I could) small and mostly tasteless, in fact they were laughably small. The bean soup might have been a half cups worth and there were three ravioli for our apps.... More

I stayed here 4 nights in March with my husband for our honeymoon and we were very, very happy with everything. First when we arrived we found rose petal on the bed in our room. A very warm welcome indeed. Vela Vrata is a small, romantic hotel, ideal for relax away from the noise, but you can easily do daily... More
