“Friendly staff, but poor location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

We booked the dependance room and did not understand prior to the trip what type of standard the room was, It turned out that the dependance room was at "Art Hotel"; a hotel that Best Western does not approve to have in their portfolio because of the standard. "Art Hotel" is located in a building behid Best Western, and we used the same reception and breakfast area.

Room:
The room was nice and clean. We had everything we needed but a minibar/minifridge.

Location:
Not a very good location due to lack of things to do in immediate walking distance. The neighborhood is rather shabby. Takes you 10-15 minutes to walk to the Old city and 25 minutes to walk to the closest beach.

Restaurant:
We had pasta bolognese which was poorly heated up. The hot part of the food tasted ok. Breakfast was good, and friendly staff.

Service:
Nice and friendly staff.
They charge 100 kuna for using the sauna, even for staying guests!

Stayed just one night, after late ferry ride from Vis. Very clean rooms, good A/C, nice bathrooms, comfortable beds. Breakfast in the morning was really good - good variety of foods (fruit, meat, cereal, croissants and nutella (!), yogurt, eggs). Room was quiet. Shower was excellent (great water pressure). Wifi was great.

The staff was great. Helped me print out something and fax it back to the USA (at no charge, but I gave them a tip when we checked out).

I stayed 2 nights in this hotel while attending a conference.This is a good town hotel with a perfect location: it's close to the old town, good restaurants and the sights. The shopping mall is also very near. Although the hotel is located in the town, the beach is only half-an-hour walk. The room was big and clean, but no balcony. Wireless connection is good and free. Do not expect too much for breakfast, just the usual things, and the restaurant is very small and very crowded. All in all, not a 4 star hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back are much quieter

I have stayed one night in this hotel.Room is spacious and clean.Breakfast is fine but do not expect much variety.Wireless connection was fine and free.Location of the hotel is good only 15 min. from old town.Only thing i have to tell is front office should be more attentive and friendly(smiling face would be useful)

Room Tip: It takes like 2 minutes to get hot water in shower.

I was staying one Night in This hotel and it was a good Experience. Big Room. Clean. Bath tub and free wifi. Its placed 10-15 mins walk from the old part of the City and I really felt that it gave me value for my money. Only negative thing was that the coffee served at breakfast is the most terrible I have tasted ever

Stained carpet, bedspread looks like it was purchased at a Goodwill Thrift Store, no bath products and our room overlooked an alley with a boat on a trailer off our balcony. This hotel is a 20-30 minute walk from the Old Town, past graffiti covered buildings. Does this sound like a 4 star hotel? Book something else unless you score this on Priceline.

The room was clean and quite big. The location of the hotel is a bit off, theres about a 15 minute walk to the old town; But other than that, it was pretty nice. And the location did not come as a suprise, as it is really easy to check out locations nowadays from googlemaps/streetview. If you want a hotel which is in the middle of everything, you should consider something else, otherwise this is a nice hotel. The wellness center was a bit highly priced considering the level of it. Seen far better wellness centers/spas in hotels.
