We expected this hotel to be finer than it actually was. The external property promises more than you get. the interior is however clean providing all that is necessary with happy to help staff. The bathrooms rather dated but it worked. The room have wonderful views from the front but do expect traditional bell tolling!

I stayed at the Palace Hvar hotel with my mom for two nights. It is the absolute perfect location to be in. You can see the hotel from the dock. You just walk & drag your suitcase for 3 minutes, and you're there! That was a perfect time (&cost) saver for us. The terrace where they serve breakfast (and is...

We found the Palace clean although a bit tired. The pool was clean and had a bar close by for coffee/drinks etc. The staff were very helpful and meals in the restaurant were excellent. The Palace was a short walk from the ferry and close to many restaurants. We would certainly recommend it if only for the stunning view from...

We stayed at a The Palace Hotel Hvar expecting a fine hotel. But it's in need of a renovation. We booked a city view room and got a side passage with old building waste and a wall. The bathroom was old and we needed the shower repaired. The shower water always flooded the floor as the shower curtain was too...

Arriving at this hotel the location and outside is great, the exterior looks amazing very palatial -But! this as far as it goes. The rooms are sadly in need of a complete revamp, dirty carpets, damp smell in rooms, poor bedroom furniture and beds and bathrooms that belong on a skip. We changed our first room which was in the...

The staff were lovely and greeted us from the ferry and took our luggage to the hotel. The hotel itself was right in the centre of the town so a great location. Nice reception area and the breakfast setting was lovely, outside, overlooking the sea. Our room did not have a sea view and it felt slightly dated. The bathroom...

Part of the building is dated back to the 13th century and this is his real charm. The hall is simple but nice with big sofas and fresh flowers in big, glass vases. Our room was on the second floor with not a great view, small but clean, with vintage forniture, good and silent air conditioning, nice, according to my...

First off let me say I have been staying at the Palace on Hvar on and off for 17 years and am very fond of it as it is a great place to stay and has an unrivalled position looking out on both the sea and the harbour and of course you are living in what was formerly a Bishop’s...

We arrived in Hvar and were very pleasantly surprised by the location, I mean you cannot fault it and I would certainly suggest using this hotel based on this alone especially if you plan to only sleep there however we stayed for 5 nights and by the end we were more then ready to depart. The outside and reception of...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In 1869, Empress Elisabeth of Vienna was so impressed after discovering the city of Hvar, that she encouraged the building of the iconic Palace hotel and contributed to the financing and design. 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. History lovers will also enjoy its central location,which provides romantic views of the ancient piazza and neighbouring buildings such as St. Stephenʼs Cathedral, and glorious sunsets over the bay. Guests can dine at the San Marco Venetian terrace overlooking the yacht harbour immersed in the heart of Hvar's historical architecture. ... more   less
