Very nice hotel at the top of picturesque Motovun. Modern amenities include a pool in the basement of which we took advantage. The management kept the pool open late for our group. Breakfast was nice in a room toward the back of the main floor. Our room was in the front and if your window is open there is a little chatter from the outdoor restaurant seating, but it was not troublesome. The benefit is that you may hear klapa singers practicing in their 2nd floor room in the neighboring church courtyard, or even better you may hear the guys after their evening practice giving in impromptu concert under the gate facing the hotel in the dark with wine glasses in their hands and a very lucky audience. Overall, the hike up the hill is worth it. Oh, and the post office is directly in front of the hotel door, but even with three people working there, expect to spend 10 to 15 minutes getting postage for your postcard. The hotel is in the center of a 20 minute evening stroll around the wall that surrounds the village.
