“Wonderful good-value accommodation!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights stay at guesthouse Paulina. The accommodation is spacious, clean and in a great location, a short walk away from the town square. Luke and Petra are fantastic and gracious hosts, who are able to offer brilliant advise about how best to explore this wonderful island. Nothing is too much trouble for them. We would definitely recommend!

We arrived early season, no reservation - we just asked our taxi driver to take us to a nice place - and he did. We won't forget Petra and Luka for their warm welcome. It was really appreciated - and fairly rare in Croatia.
The studio we had was really large, all of the amenities in the room, lovely patio overlooking the old town and ocean and a great price. We are lucky that we found this gem.

This review is long over due, and my first ever. Petra & Luka are incredible hosts. They responded quickly to every email, and they had all the answers and recommendations I needed. Plus, our room was clean, large and had a wonderful balcony overlooking the archipelago of islands off shore. We enjoyed many delicious take away meals on the balcony as the view doesn't get any better. It's only about a 5-10 minute walk to all the shops and restaurants.

If I return to Hvar, I will absolutely stay at Guesthouse Paulina. I promise you will be 110% satisfied. Thank you Petra & Luka for a wonderful stay, and thank you for taking us to and from the ferry port. You went above and beyond anything we could have asked for.

This small guesthouse is a really good place to stay.
- great operators who took us on excursions, cooked for us, collected us from the harbour and took us to Stari Grad for our boat home - all for free!
- Good sized 1 bed apartments, with separate kitchen and bathroom and with a great sea view. (beds are ok, but probably in need of an upgrade)
- Location was excellent, only 5 minutes walk from centre of town
- very quiet area
- very relaxed stay
- excellent value for money!

I highly recommend Guesthouse Paulina when you are staying in Hvar on Hvar Island.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view

Petra & Luka are just great!
Luka picked us up at the harbor, welcome us with a cold beer while he explained everything about the island, just perfect!
The house is spotless clean and very comfortable.
The only thing missing was an AC, but the fan worked out pretty well.
We sure recommend the place ;o)
Thank you Luka & Petra for everything! We had a wonderful time!

Room Tip: get the room in the ground level, left side if you are staying there during the summer. it doesn'...

From the moment we stepped foot off the ferry, where we were greeted by Luca to the moment our trip came to the end, Luka and Petra did a wonderful job as hosts. The guesthouse is in a great spot, a short walk to town and the balcony from the apartment has a beautiful view of the sea.

We were given all the information and tips we needed on arrival over a cool beer and anytime we neded anything Luka and Petra were able to help us.

The rooms were great value, and i would not hesitate in booking again if i return to the beautiful island of Hvar again.

Room Tip: The top apartment (sleeps 3) has two balconies that are great for eating breakfast and dinner on and...

I stayed at Paulina's Guesthouse for five nights with my girlfriend. From the very first moment, when Luka came to pick us up from the Catamaran, to the moment we left the island, we loved the house, the location, the island and last but not least, the hosts, Luka and Petra. Our apartment was spacious, kitchen had everything we needed, the walls were artistically decorated with beautiful pebble stones from the island, we even had our own terrace with table and chairs. I believe there may be differences between rooms in that aspect.

On arrival, Luka gave us a map and spent a long while of his time explaining and recomnmending us numerous sites, restaurants, beaches and activities based on our interests. All in all, both Luka and Petra were friendly, pleasant, always ready to help and have a chat. They definitely made us feel more like guests than customers.
Thank you!
