I stayed in the hotel w/c 20th August 2012.
The good points:
1. New and modern
2. Easy to find from ferry
3. Clean hotel
The bad points:
1. Location - 2km walk outside Stari Grad wasn't ideal during day, but ok. At night, however, it was unsafe to walk through forest (warned of people with drugs and drink) and the main road had no pavement and no lights and unsafe considering car speeds.
2. Air con - My air con as well as a few other rooms was not working (also heard tv's not working). It was unbearably hot, had to sleep with room open, bitten my mosquitoes and woken by drunken people sauntering to / from nearby disco. Repairman called but scheduled to come 5 days later.
3. Hotel staff - When I requested a discount that reflected the inconvenience the owner / manager was inflexible - said she has to sleep without air con herself, so I should get over it, also said that I was out in the sun all day so I should be fine with hot weather.... when I asked her to reconsider based upon this being a new hotel and their reputation, she said she didn't care, they were closing the hotel for end of season and a bad review wouldn't affect her.
4 No character - you don't see anyone else in the hotel, no breakfast, no atmosphere.
