I had read about the reviews of the hotel and rooms etc. before I booked but was on a budget so went for it. The location/view from restaurant is the only thing this hotel really has going for it. Our room was depressingly dark - as said by past reviews city view is a wall! The overhead fan was threatening... More

We stayed here on our honeymoon because other hotels were booked up. The location is ideal but the facilities itself is not up to standards. First off, no AC. This still boggles my mind that a hotel of this caliber (for what they charge) has still not retrofitted to include AC. They did provide a fan, but in 35C weather,... More

The Palace Hotel in Hvar is undoubtedly the worst hotel that I have ever stayed at. Having traveled to nearly 40 countries and stayed at countless hotels, I have never had to physically leave a hotel after check-in. Before I even detail just how bad of an experience I had, I want to reiterate that we booked this through American... More

This hotel is in a great location in Hvar, near the port and lots of restaurants and bars. The hotel itself has very average rooms which could be a lot more hygienic. My brother said he had cockroaches in his bathroom in the room he stayed in. Breaksfast is ok but there are some nice views from the terrace.

This old grande dame has the location...the rooms also show its age. Rooms are smaller, no air and no ceiling fan,and the bath rooms appear pre- war..pre WW2. Although the front rooms have the view of the harbor and plaza, they also, unfortunately, pick up all the sounds from the late night/early morning partying from the local bars etc. Give... More

We stayed here for three nights while in Croatia and were quite disappointed with the hotel. It is very dated. The rooms and the bathroom were so old fashioned. Also the view from our room looked onto the back wall. I know we went with a budget option as we were travelling, but from all the hotels we stayed in... More

Not one inch of beauty in this hotel. The location is great. The view outside of your window , from the 4th floor, is great. However the rooms are disgusting. Needs serious renovating. The hallway looks like The Shining. I'm waiting for the little girls to show up. No air conditioner. Bathrooms small and moldy. If you want location it's... More

No air conditioning, ambiance of a communist era hospital. Others got SOBE apartments with air conditioning for less money. Location is excellent, but that is the only positive. Old elevator should be in a museum.

Great place, perfect location with awesome views. Easy walk up to the fortress, lounges and bars close by. The rooms were nice and cozy, friendly staff, amazing breakfast spread catering to vegans as well. Loved our stay there. Would highly recommend it. It can get a bit noisy so bring ear plugs :)

We stayed here for 3 nights in early September. Positives were few and far between although the Palace does boast a great location, overlooking the main port. The staff also do a good job with what they have to work with, and the breakfast is not bad. The main drawback is the lack of air conditioning. Although, in fairness, it... More
