2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012 via mobile

We stayed for 2 nights and I slept really badly as the laughter and conversations at 4 am from people waiting for the ferry woke me up.

The rooms are basic but clean and the air con was not working so closing the windows was not an option

Having said that the staff were very nice and changed our room to one of the side rooms which meant we no longer had to listen to the singer (which was great until 4 am when the people waiting for the ferry started gathering outside)

I stayed at Hotel Kastil for three nights in September when the weather was beautiful so the time spent in the hotel was minimal. For this purpose the hotel is ideal being smack bang overlooking the harbour with plenty of restaurants, cafes and provisions all close at hand.
Check in was quick and easy and though my room was at the front of the hotel it was on the second floor and because of the palm trees didn't allow an unrestricted view to the sea, but with the glorious weather I just wanted to be outside all the time anyway. The room was basic and the TV wasn't up to much but the shower was good and the room was serviced efficiently each day. The breakfast each morning was standard continental fare - nothing to write home about - that served its purpose. This was taken on the terrace.
The best thing about the hotel is the location right on the front with the whole of the island accessible. The little bus stop/station one minute across the road has buses to various destinations on the island with timetables displayed. This is where you will arrive if coming from Supetar having arrived on the earlier more frequent ferries.
The harbour also is where the daily ferry arrives and departs to Split - arriving late afternoon and departing very early morning.
As others mention there can be a bit of noise outside but this didn't cause me any loss of sleep.
Go the left as you look to sea for the quiet cove beaches or right and a 15 minute walk to the famous zlatni rat
Would I stay here again - definitely yes because of the location and price combination.

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony for the view if you plan stopping in the hotel long

Stayed at the Hotel Kastil for 1 night in the summer 2011. We loved the location and the scenery but, the hotel is very uninviting and reminds me a little of a low budget motel. The rooms are uncomfortably small and poorly lit however, open your windows and you will see that the scenery is lovely and the view from the terrace is exceptional. The staff was certainly pleasant and assisted us when needed. Zlatni Rat beach is about a 10 minute walk along a marble path - very enjoyable. We loved the location of the Hotel and the scenery but, the value for the accommodation itself was not worthwhile.

I will not even comment on the noise. It is exactly as others have reviewed... you will be up until at least 2am with the singing, laughter and the jovial partying of tourists and locals alike. We knew this in advance and even though it was frustrating, we were prepared.

Right by the hotel there is a wonderful little restaurant (I think it might be affiliated with the Kastil) and they make delicious pizzas. Stop right there to eat - you will not be disappointed.

All in all, we didn't enjoy the actual rooms of the hotel but, the rest of our experience with the Island was delightful. Bol is a beautiful place and a must stop on your vacation itinerary.

We have just returned from Hotel Kastil having spent a week there. Sadly we had 2 wet and windy days but not hotel's fault! We had a room with small balcony on the 3rd floor from which we enjoyed the wonderful views of the harbourside and across to Hvar, which we visited on a wonderful boat trip with wine, fish, and swimming. The guitarist playing in the hotel's pizzeria below was a pleasure to listen to and if we wanted to go to bed we merely closed the extremely good double glazed door to cut out the music. Our room had a/c which meant that we could sleep well. The only downside was that my wife felt that the bed was a bit hard, but I think this is often the case in 3* hotels in Europe. Breakfast was fine, small continental including scrambled egg and frankfurters. mostly taken on the terrace except for the 2 bad days. As previous reviews have indicated Hotel Kastil, being in the centre of Bol meant that we could easily enjoy the lovely local restaurants, especially the one opposite the main door, Konoba Gust, superb, and Mendula, a 10 minute uphill climb, well worth it. All in all a lovely holiday.

Room Tip: As others have said ask for a balcony

Hotel Kastil is a great location because its right in the centre of town; however, this can also be noisy at night as you are near the bars. The staff are very accommodating and friendly. The continental breakfast was great and there is a safe in your room. We arrived very early so they kept our luggage for us while we waited to check and they also let us check in early! We also were given a packed lunch as we left very early on our check out day. Overall I would say very nice hotel.

A lovely little hotel on the edge of the harbour. You are in the heart of this beautiful resort. Never mind being serenaded by the guitarist, you will relax into the delicious ambience of Bol. The staff were marvellous.

And remember, even though there's no pool, you have use of the Blue Sun hotel's fantastic facilities only a 10 minute stroll away.
