This is by far the worst hotel I have ever been in and it's wasn't that cheap!! It was probably a fantastic hotel in the 60s or 70s but literally not one cent has been spent since then. The only plug socket is in the bathroom. A double room consists of two hard wooden beds shoved together! It's actually resembles... More

We booked into Hotel Arkada via Booking.com for less than £20 per nite. It's obvious that the Hotel was the place to come for package holidays in it's Heyday. Now, its of an era (late 80s) but for the price we paid, which included a continental breakfast we were very happy. There is a lovely swimming pool, with acces to... More

Small rooms, no aircondition, and if you can handle that it is also dirty and that is worst thing that can be for any hotel. Just avoid it. Only reason that I stayed there is that they had avilable rooms and that was hard to find if you come to island Hvar in the high season and you had no... More

I've spent 10 days in Hvar, due to a summer school organised by my university. It has been one of the greatest summer ever! The hotel is old fashioned but well equipped for those who have no great demands.

Disgusting hotel. I would not recommend this place to my worst enemy. They do not really like their guests, employees are apathetic and not interested in the business/their jobs. Restaurant is very dirty, stinky rooms, old furniture, wifi is not free and is unstable, no animations, food below average, etc. I would recommend paying extra to go to Hvar town... More

The experience of staying at this hotel for one night nearly made me want to leave Croatia. The rooms are tiny with nowhere to put two suitcases. The whole of the hotel is run down as they cannot afford to refurbish it. None of the rooms had plug sockets and so we were unable to recharge our mobiles except with... More
