Reviewed July 1, 2011

Relaxed but very comfortable hotel with great facilities.
Excellent swimming facility
Staff could not be more helpful and friendly.
It is 15 minutes walk from "downtown" Hvar, but the hotel provide a cheap shuttle service if you are too lazy to walk.

Room Tip: Get aroom with view if possible

We stayed in Hotel Podstine for 4 nights in May on our honeymoon. It was the best we could expect! Lovely family-run hotel in the peaceful bay with luxurous private beach. Relaxing athmosphere with bean bags, sunbeds and beautiful view at the sea, the restaurant was pretty good and breakfast tasty, especially yoghurt with lots of different kind of muesli was spectacular. The room was tidy and had nice balcony and luxurious shampoos, massage oils, etc. On the top was definitelly the most kind and helpful staff, who adviced us in many cases, organised us a taxi driver for airport who also bought us tickets to catamaran (as it can be fullbooked some days) and even called
to the restaurant to complain that they had charged us too much! The best service I've ever had in the most beautiful location in Europe. Will be there one day again!

My boyfriend and I have just returned from our holiday in Croatia. We chose hotel podstine simple because we wanted a relaxing 3 nights in Hvar. This is precisely what we got. Please don't be phased by the reviews that this hotel is far from the centre (a lovely 20 min walk along the sea).

The rear of hotel podstine is situated facing the sea on a tiered terrace, with trees offering shaded area. There were ample sunbeds. There were are also bean bags dotted about. There is a jacuzzi, a pool and sauna - all of which are fairly small. I had a massage and it was phenomenal! The hotel staff were very friendly, couldn't say a bad word.

There was a varied selection of breakfast - 4 different cereals, boiled / scrambled egg, sausages, various meats and various cheeses, yoghurts and bread. We never ate an evening meal at the restaurant but the lunch menu was ok.

We visited the Amfora, it is very grand, so grand that we got lost within it! I felt so relieved that we'd chosen Podstine.

If you want a relaxingand enjoyable stay in hvar then stay at hotel podstine.

Room Tip: Sea view is a nice touch

The Hotel Podstine was a wonderful choice for accommodations in the city of Hvar. The views of the bay, sea, and islands were breathtaking. The setting was quiet and intimate and away from the bright lights and noise of the city; yet, it was close enough to walk to. The staff were very cordial and helped me plan my own day trip around the island. Not having Wi-Fi or internet in the room was a bit inconvenient.

Room Tip: It is worth getting a room with a sea view.

The front of the hotel does not do justice to the splendour of the view as you walk through to the rear. There are several layered terraces, all with comfortable seating, overlooking the sea. Lush palm trees and greenery provide shade in the hot summer months. Sun beds & 'beanies' are provided on the lower terrace, which acts as a private beach - ladders lead down to the sea.

The staff were friendly and courteous, in particular the two waiters - Deda & Dado. As it was the start of season, there were not many guests, but we were treated like royalty. Food was excellent, particularly the five-course dinners which were provided to half-board guests.

The hotel was spotlessly clean and very quiet. There was a small outdoor pool, but we did not use it as the water was too cold at the time, as was the sea.

We had a room with balcony facing the sea - the view was amazing. The only minus point was our shower - only 50 litres of hot water and not enough for two people bathing one after the other (at least 30-40 mins to reheat water).

Hvar town is about 30 minutes stroll from the hotel.

Visit Stari Grad - a small, pretty, village on the island - lots of Roman history. Also Palmizana island.

We were told that the best time of year to visit Croatia is September, as the sea is warm and there are not many tourists.

Room Tip: Sea facing room with balcony well worth the extra.

Staff were exceptionally helpful, and proactively reviewed our itinerary and resolved conflicts for the part of our trip that followed our stay at Hotel Podstine. The hotel is at a beautiful location and within easy walking distance to Hvar Town. Our room was large and comfortable. The friendly and helpful staff, location, and view made this an awesome stop, and we wish we could have stayed longer.

The rooms are fine (not especial though), all of them have a beautuful view (sea or garden), the location is really nice, some 20 minutes walk from the center. The beach is very small. (all Hvar has stony beaches).
The hotel stuff was, unfortunately, not trained at all. They seemed to be students having a good summer time and accepting some hotel guests as nesessary evil of their own vacation. We asked for a shuttle to be picked up at the station, but the hotel just forgot it, so we had to negotiate with a taxi driver - one of the most astounding examples of rudeness available on the island - a suitable price, while the hotel kept telling us there is no car available and we should try find our way. Not one word of apology.
