At first glance it looked fantastic; beautiful hotel, pool and garden. But it soon became clear it that the hotel is old, outdated, messy and just simply dirty. Our overpriced room with 'sea view' (which turned out to be mostly 'roof top view') came with very outdated furniture, clogged up drains, toothpaste residue from previous guests, broken shower screen, stains in bathtub and so on.

But the biggest disappointment was the pool and garden area; we were told the water of the pool was foggy because of air in the system but it was just simply filthy. My husband spend half an hour scooping out dead bugs and rotting leaves before we even dared to go in, keeping our heads well above water! And relaxing in the garden wasn't much fun either as we were eaten alive by dozens of mosquitoes.

We have stayed in low budget hostels along the coast of Croatia that were more comfortable and cleaner that this hotel!

Stayed at Art Villa as a couple for three nights and found it to be charming, quirky and friendly. It has a homely feel, the pool is nice and the whole building is decorated in artwork created by the owner.

It's only a pleasant 25-minute stroll by the sea into the old town, or there's a bus stop round the corner. Also, the nearby street has some great restaurants and a convenience store.

The only thing we found disappointing was to be charged an extra €3 per night "city tax", which was on top of the booking.com price. We asked for an explanation for this, but they didn't seem willing to discuss. It may be a legitimate charge, but if so it should be factored into the booking price. It was only €9 for us, but for people staying longer it could be a substantial increase. Not good marketing!

Also, take mosquito repellent as there are many of them in the garden area.

We stayed for two day, our final days in Croatia. We were were very disappointed for the following reasons: The room was very small. More like an old Parisian hotel room. The bath room toilet seat fell off in the middle of the night and never got repaired. The TV lacked a remote which could be found. The mattress really needs to be replaced.
The facility is dated. No breakfast. Facility is clean. The hosts was very pleasant and seems to be really trying to make a go of it. Not worth the cost. The Hotel.Com price was initially not honored. Had to press the issue. Move on the find a better facility. Plenty available in Zadar.

Room tip: Choose another hotel.

Villa Ines is not really a hotel but rather a B&B. There is very little personnel, just students who man reception and some cleaning ladies.
Our room was fairly small but pleasantly decked with colourful paintings. Towels are changed every day. The hotel itsel is not really very clean.
The hotel has a swimming pool, a boon when you come back after a hot day.
Villa Ines is situated in a quiet neighbourhood. There are a number of restaurants nearby. The old centre of Zadar is too far away; so we either went there by car (in the morning) or by bus (in the evening).
Cars can be parked in the hotel's private parking lot (free).
The hotel does not do breakfasts, but you may use their cutlery and crockery that can be found in the (former) dining room downstairs. There is a supermarket right opposite the hotel.
