Overlooking the harbour, just off the main square, in pedestrian-only Hvar Town. It is less than a 10-minute walk to all the main attractions, the ferry port and bus station.
There are 13 suites sleeping two, comprising a bedroom, bathroom and living room, plus one suite sleeping four, with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a living room. Smart and comfortable, though not luxurious, they all have wooden or tile floors, some exposed stonework, and simple modern furniture. The best suites have balconies with views over the harbour – perfectly positioned for watching the sun set over the sea.
My favourite feature here is the big stone terrace, shaded by wooden trelliswork and lush planting. It makes a fine venue for breakfast, with views onto the palm-lined seafront promenade and the yachts and wooden fishing boats that fill Hvar’s pretty harbour. A bonus for guests with cars, the hotel has its own parking space outside the town walls.
Eating and drinking
Breakfast outside on the leafy terrace, overlooking the harbour, is a delight. Expect delicious oven-warm croissants, frothy cappuccinos and omelettes cooked-to-order. They also do a la carte dining in the evening, with favourite dishes including škampi na buzaru (shrimps cooked in garlic, white wine and parsley) and peppered steak.
None, but the staff can help you organise local excursions and water sports.
Very helpful, friendly and professional staff. Being a small hotel with just 14 suites, service is very personalised.
