First off there is no air conditioning. The room we were shown was small, dark and dull facing a wall. We left without checking in. The location is fine, facing the harbour and the square which is party central.

Hotel is set on the sea, facing the docks and boats, which makes for a beautiful breakfast view. Rooms are standard European rooms, some with two twins and some with queen beds. Bathrooms are small but doable and include nice toiletries for use. Staff is overly friendly and helpful and come ready with recommendations and tips for restaurants, sights and...

Staff at front desk were wonderful. views were wonderful. All other aspects were poor. Bedroom furniture was white plastic; restaurant staff were snarley(except one gentleman who was very responsive); foodedicore at best;silverware was dirty. Being industrial strength ear plugs for the night time noise. PS no air conditioning. This place needs an over-haul and new management.

The location of the hotel is great. Except if you want to sleep at night, it's just in the center of all the partying, so expect noise until very late. Breakfast is very good, and the view from the terrace is lovely. My room on the top floor was old fashioned, with old carpet and the bathroom looked and smelled...

We loved this hotel in the center of Hvar. The room was really nice and the breakfasts were superb. The location was incredible. We walked everywhere from this hotel, and loved the central site. We were a little unsure of booking this as we read that it was past its prime. Contraire - on the booking idea. It was value,...

We stayed in a sea view family room for 6 nights, recently. The hotel is in a great location, right on the front.so we had a wonderful view of the square and the marina from our window. The Palace is very grand in appearance, although small enough to have a very intimite feel about it. Staff were very helpful and...

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
