From outside it looks like a part of old town houses,but terrace and inside is like you came in a fairytale. Beautiful design,very kindly staff,we get free entrance to Destilerija Aura and tryed 18 tipes of shots/rakija. Food is perfect, jacuzzi and sauna omg cant be better. My reccomendation for this place,you just have to experience this.

This hotel is situated in the old town and has stunning views over the valley from the outside terrace. Our room was beautifully decorated although slightly small but the bathroom was very well appointed with powerful shower and lots of space. The hotel seems to be a family run affair, charming friendly staff who are happy to help move luggage... More

The hotel is set at the top of a hill in the old town with beautiful views below. We only stayed one night but our room, although compact, was very lovely. The indoor pool was open 24 hours and a nice way to end our evening. We also had dinner here which was very good and our breakfast was fresh... More

We recently spent 3 nights here. Hotel Vela Vrata was the perfect base - on the top of the hill in the old town which was unspoilt and devoid of souvenir shops. The restaurant was incredibly good. We ate there each night and worked our way through a very varied menu. Breakfasts were amazing too. The swimming pool and spa... More

This hotel was for tourists and the food for dinner was fine when it arrived but dinner on the second night when the place was v busy took over an hour for the one course that we ordered to arrive AND WINE WAS VERY EXPENSIVE.

This hotel was lovely,an ornate room with beautiful linen and extremely comfortable beds. Our room overlooked the valley and it was furnished to a very comfortable standard. It had beautiful gilded mirrors-a feature of the decor! The hotel had an amazing indoor swimming pool, even the towel rails and seating were heated. Luxury when you are on a walking tour.... More

Vela Vrata is a great well designed hotel with a stunning view embedded in the old part of Buzet. The rooms are clean and the service is amazingly friendly. When you are in Buzet this is definitely the hotel you should stay in! Ps: Do not forget to use the private spa room they have! :)
