Most visitors flock to Hvar Town, with its delightful Venetian-era buildings, magnificent stone-paved piazza and proud hilltop castle. Now Croatia’s trendiest island destination, Hvar Town also has some of the country’s smartest (and most expensive) hotels. You can expect beautifully renovated old buildings with funky contemporary interiors and luxurious extras such as spas, pools and gourmet restaurants. And, if you hunt extremely carefully, you’ll also find a one or two reasonably-priced b&bs and self-catering apartments hidden in its narrow cobbled alleys.

The island’s other two main settlements, Stari Grad and Jelsa, are still lacking in quality accommodation. But for those who want a taste of how the islanders once lived, before Hvar Town attracted international celebrities and mega yachts, I’ve added a b&b on the island’s glorious but isolated south coast (Stella Mare).

Things to consider before booking

  • Prices drop in May and June, and September and October, when the island is less busy, but the sea is still warm enough to swim in.
  • Prices rocket in peak season (July-August) especially in trendy Hvar Town.
  • Breakfast is almost always included in the room rate.
  • Tourist tax (7Kn, approx 1 euro, per person per day) is generally (but not always) included in room rates.
  • Stays of less than three days generally have a small surcharge.

While I was living in Split, I visited Hvar many times, occasionally for work, but more often for pleasure. I've stayed in several of Hvar’s top hotels, but also taken refuge from a thunderstorm (abandoning boat) on the tiny Pakleni islands, and hiked along much of Hvar’s south coast. I’ve written about the island for various guidebooks, newspapers and websites, and I’m continually keeping track of renovation projects and new hotel openings that could enrich a visitor’s experience. Out of the seven Hvar hotels listed here, I’ve tried to include a good cross-section to appeal to various types of visitors – party animals, eco-tourists and families with kids – and a range of price brackets.

Simonseeks has given star ratings out of five for all accommodation recommendations. With hotels, these will tally with the hotel's official star rating where it exists. Where a hotel has no official star rating, and in the case of b & bs and hostels, the experts have made a judgment as to how many stars the accommodation deserves, in terms of comfort, level of facilities and so forth.
