Just arrived at the hotel and I'm already wanting to leave. The lobby looks nice but then you walk into the room, carpet is dirty with stains, stains on the walls and even on the bedside lamps and bathroom is horrible. Wifi drops out every 5 minutes. Only good thing about this place is the location, would never recommend anyone... More

The hotel is located in a perfect location, right in the heart of the main square near the port. The hotel staff had great service. The buffet breakfast was great, very fresh and a variety of options. The balcony in which breakfast is served has great views overlooking the post and the town square. We recommend this hotel to other... More

Since staying in the Palace about 4 years ago, there have been dramatic improvements: air con, nicer beds and linen, breakfast times. In fact the hotel is perfectly located and is a really nice play to stay. So it is with great regret I cannot give 5 stars. We had paid the significant upgrade price from standard room to sea...

Hotel location was 5*...just on the harbour/square which was great coming off the boat with suitcases. 24hr manned desk and a free breakfast buffet on the rooftop terrace- really good. I do however agree that the rooms need a facelift- the bathrooms particularly! The bathroom was very retro and the shower leaked and filled up so you had to turn... More

No words left! Shower in our room was completely old and wall decor was falling down. Small room, no chance for storage our two cases...no safe door to lock...staff was okay, but had no idea abouthelping us out by asking for travel possibilities. Pool is very, very small. Not yet again!

Now that the apologetic handy man has glued back the pieces of the carpet which came up when I tripped over I am discovering that the listing for free wi fi, my main requirement, does not reach to my room but is only in the open spaces. Furthermore, the finishing of the installations with uncovered and unpainted screws, the mismatched... More

The Palace Hvar is in a great location just by the harbour and the main square. The Terrace has a scenic view and ambience and is great for breakfast and dinner. Nice touch that they greeted us from the Catamaran coming in from Split and took our bags up to the jetty for our next leg to Dubrovnik. The rooms... More

We stayed in the Palace Hotel on Hvar for several nights in June. No A/C, no screens on the windows to keep the bugs out. I think last updated in the 1950's. The lobby was fine, but internet was unavailable in the rooms. Would have rather stayed at a classier place in such a beautiful town. Disappointed

location, location and location. This is the best advantage of this hotel. It is right on Hvar square and only a few meters away from the harbour. The stairs that leads to the castle is just at the left side of the hotel. The breakfast also is excellent with many choices. You also have a great view of the harbour... More

Incredible location right on Hvar square, our room had the most idyllic view out to the harbour and sea. Breakfast was lovely as were the staff. BUT the hotel desperately needs updating, the rooms are tired and old, and as a result it's screamingly overpriced... If you only have one night in Hvar it's a good choice, otherwise I'd shop...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In 1869, Empress Elisabeth of Vienna was so impressed after discovering the city of Hvar, that she encouraged the building of the iconic Palace hotel and contributed to the financing and design. From the beginning the hotel was a great success welcoming guests from all over Europe establishing Hvar as a famous destination as it is today. The hotel has graciously aged charm and character mirroring that of the island. History lovers will also enjoy its central location,which provides romantic views of the ancient piazza and neighbouring buildings such as St. Stephenʼs Cathedral, and glorious sunsets over the bay. Guests can dine at the San Marco Venetian terrace overlooking the yacht harbour immersed in the heart of Hvar's historical architecture. ... more   less
