The location of this hotel is absolutely fantastic!! It is a minute's walk from where the ferry from Split/ Dubrovnik drops you off and the marina location is just amazing! Unfortunately this is where the complements stop. The bedrooms are tiny, we had a superior double and there was nothing superior about it. Next the bathroom, what a joke: No bathroom door A glass door for the toilet which is inside the bathroom - meaning that you cannot do anything in private There is a mirror on the wall positioned in such a way that when you are using the toilet your partner / guest / friend can see everything you are doing!! Its truly shocking, worst deigned rooms / bathrooms I have ever seen in a hotel anywhere! First night, we arrived at 8pm, there was no hot water in the room, I complained and an engineer came to the room 10 minutes later to tell me that I had to wait one hour for hot water as the pressure was low and there was nothing that he could do about it!! Not good enough! Second morning ay breakfast there was no bread to make some toast, I raised this with a waitress to be told sorry they have run out and there was nothing that she could do about it.... must be a common response from their staff. I complained further as I could see other people who were buying breakfasts getting toast!!! Luckily we were only staying in Hvar for 3 nights so this experience did not ruin what was an amazing holiday in Croatia Please do visit Hvar, it's an amazing island, Please do not book this hotel, it really is very poor!

Firstly, incredible staff! From cleaners, receptionist to security. Always happy to see us, smiling and warm welcomes. Breakfast was lovely with a range of cheeses, cold meats and pastries not to forgot prosecco! The location, WOW. Beautiful. They upgraded my room as I was the hen - thank you ever so much. You really can't go wrong here. You step right out onto the harbour with restaurants and bars either side of you. You have access to the spa across the road, absolute bliss. Very luxury, to the extent I thought I was in the wrong place! I just can't fault this place. I would be lucky to come back.

Fifty yards from the ferry. Not easy to find -- hidden behind BB Club tables. Noisy, small rooms, garish decor, basic breakfast. Not cheap. But OK for a couple of nights when travelling around. Hvar itself is a bit limited. Get the bus to Starigrad, which is nice for a visit.

Currently stuck here for 2 nights thank god no longer! Shower only has warm water when I complained I was told it is hot it is 40C! No that is lukewarm. Not to mention the water does not stay at that temperature in continues to go warm to cold constantly. Wifi connection drops in and out constantly. Bathroom is difficult to navigate with huge in the way glass door for toilet. We are in a superior Room and have barely enough room to get around the bed with 2 suitcases. The flooring is tacky and cheap! Can’t wait to leave here!

We stayed here for 2 nights in September 8-10. We are travelling with Gate1 on a 2 week tour. Our guide downplayed this hotel as he mentioned the rooms are smaller than what we are used to, but the location is great as or was in the heart of the town. He was right. But we were very pleased as when we arrived, we found the place to be an excellent spot to spend 2 nights. Yes, the room is a bit smaller than what we may be accustomed to, but it is located in the BEST location in Hvar. Our room overlooked to Marina whetecal the action takes place. So many yachts docked with the rich and famous. The hotel does not have a swimming pool but it has a sister hotel called the Adriana that welcomes the Riva guests to use their spa and pool facilities. We did so and found them to be very accommodating Highly recommend you stay there!
