I agree with what I have read by most people on here. The draw of the hotel is really the location. It is right in the center of town. Beautiful exterior and wonderful breakfast area, overlooking the harbor. However, wouldn't recommend this hotel in summer. WAY too hot, and even though our room overlooked the harbor, we got absolutely no breeze. The room was significantly hotter than it was outside. Made sleeping really difficult.
And yes, no wifi in rooms and even out in the lobby it was spotty. Not a huge issue, but every other hotel we stayed in in Croatia had no problem with wifi, so it was annoying.
Also, our room was noisy pretty late because of noise from the restaurants and bars. We weren't sleeping early though, cause we were too busy trying to cool down. But just a little irritating.
The front desk seemed understaffed, but the women that were working there worked really hard and were very pleasant and helpful.
The hotel has a lot of potential, being such a beautiful building with a lot of history, but it needs to be renovated a bit. A lot of character that isn't being utilized.

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.
