Wonderful Stay at Hvar Places Hotel
Reviewed 20 September, 2021
Had an amazing stay at Hvar Places hotel! The place has very stylish decor and amazing sea views. You will never be bored as there are so many activities and live DJ events in the evenings. I very much enjoyed morning yoga by the sea and the live music events in the evenings. It’s also super easy with flexi board! I wish all hotels did the same. You eat whenever and order whatever you like with the credit provided, it’s so nice to have the flexibility rather than the usual half board. The food is so lovely too! You must also take a coastline walk to Stari Grad town, such a lovely lovely views along the way! And you can also get the hotels taxi boat back for 10 Kunas so you can enjoy the views from the sea. I really recommend this hotel! Thank you for such a lovely time Hvar Places Hotel !
Good but not amazing

After being cautious going abroad post pandemic and friend and I booked to stay here for a week.
Overall the hotel is good but little things could make it better.
For example the lay out of the rooms, there is one mirror cramped into where you walk in and if you’re getting ready there it blocks the way to the bathroom for the other person and you’re basically stood in the very small storage area for clothes. There isn’t anywhere to store suitcases, the mirror isn’t near a power socket and the lighting by the mirror was awful! Robes, room service and a complementary bottle of water would make a huge difference. The room in general is small for 2 people to share. The ac worked well but was quite temperamental and would beep a lot saying ‘door’ when no doors were open! There is a bright light on it so if you need pitch black this could be a problem.
The staff on the most part weren’t that friendly! Little things they could do to be helpful that they just don’t for example booking the hotel shuttle to hvar…they don’t say anything about booking the shuttle for return so we ended up stuck in hvar and paying £35 for a taxi.
The food: breakfast was very good but the lunch and dinner was ok.. nothing amazing but could be worse! Cocktails were really good! The flexi package was good but a bit confusing to keep tabs on as it was done in Hungarian currency but we were told we get €25 a day… we usually use GBP
We went out of the hotel and walked towards stari grad and found a lovely little restaurant which was really nice.
Covid testing through the hotel was cheap and swift.
We rented the bikes which was hard work but fun to explore and find little hidden coves and beaches!
The pool was cold to start with but refreshing once you got use to it! Just jump in!!!
The massage was really good and I would recommend!
Refreshed hotel with good vibes

We were only 2 days in Hvar as part of a road trip through Croatia. We chose this hotel to experience the classic relaxing holiday. The hotel is a year open and was renovated. You see it is renovated because there is no lift for example and the paint in the rooms is not always perfect. However the place where this is, so close to the beach, in a bay with the magnificent views from the pool are breath taking. The vibe places wants to give with its openness is also A-grade. The beds around the pool are top class, cocktails and the alchemist are too. The food in the hotel is correctly priced and very fresh. If you'd stay a week, the variety can be better, but for a short stay, this was perfect.
We really had a fun time. Thanks!
Perfect stay in Start Grad

Nearly everything about our stay wins 5 stars from us including the hotel service, drinks, food (highly recommend any pizza) and location. It is a 10 minute walk to the town which is filled with fantastic restaurants, shops and a market, a 2 minute walk to the hotels activities (paddle boarding, cycling, windsurfing etc) and a 20ish minute taxi to Hvar town. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone with lots of luggage as most rooms are up lots of stairs with no lift option. The rooms are also on the smaller side but didn't bother us. Would love to return and stay again.
Wonderful in every way...

This was a last minute decision as we normally stay in a villa with a group of friends but our plans changed as our villa was cancelled due to Covid. Wow this exceeded our expectations and it was perfect for a group of parents and their teenagers. The flexi board was brilliant with hungry teenage boys, a good variety of food but it was also good to have the option of going out for dinner in the evenings. Getting the water taxi into town was charming and the walk if you miss the taxi is beautiful along the coast and only 10-15 minutes. Stari Grad is unspoilt and beautiful with lots of bars and restaurants and so so pretty. The hotel was so comfortable and easy with plenty of sunbeds and different options of things to do. We originally thought that the music and organised events would be a pain but we absolutely LOVED Dounja (the gorgeous fitness instructor) and did aqua aerobics with her everyday (even the teenage boys joined in), we did paddle boarding, yoga etc. Dragana at reception was so helpful and friendly and did her utmost to keep us happy. Do organise a boat trip which you can do through the boat taxi, we had a fantastic day and saw loads of dolphins, had an unforgettable lunch and swam in secluded bays. Would definitely stay here again. Thank you for a fabulous stay.
