“Great hotel & location”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

We spent 2 nights here on our Croatian island hopping holiday and were very happy. The staff are very helpful and friendly, the location is fantastic - right on the water, only a short walk to the ferry, good room with a balcony overlooking the water. The buffett breakfast is good and view from the dining terrace is wonderful. Very easy to walk everywhere in Bol. It is a very clean town and the locals are very proud of this - a joy to visit.

There are a lot of positives to staying this hotel. Bol is a very nice family resort and this hotel is in the best location, right on the sea front in the centre. The hotel is very clean, has good staff and is well managed. we had a level 3 sea view room with a small balcony. Superb views of the boats and yachts which are continually arriving to drop day visitors off. Breakfast is nice and there are plenty of restaurants near bye. No real negatives, there is some low level noise at night till about 1am but with the windows on and the air conditioning cooling the room it did not stop us sleeping.

Room Tip: Pay a little more and pre book a sea view room with balcony.

Right on the Riva, couldn't be closer to the water. Best location in Bol. Clean rooms with great view (ours had window, but no balcony.) Helpful staff. Delicious breakfast buffet. Gets festive at night, but just close your windows if you don't want to sing along.

Room Tip: See if you can get a balcony.

This is a great hotel, and very good value for money. The rooms are lovely, and we had a great balcony overlooking the harbour and could see right out across the bay. I think all the rooms have a balcony, and are all forward facing, but we were also on the 3rd floor so the view was great.
The bed was lovely, as was the shower and the rooms are plenty big enough. The hotel is right on the main sea front strip of bars and restaurants, but set back from the road so you're in the middle of it all but without any noise. The staff were friendly too.
The only slight letdown was the breakfast which was a bit basic, but then it had coffee, cereal and ham, cheese and bread so thats a minor thing really (plus they packed us a lunchbag the day we had to leave early which was a really nice touch).
Overall, the nicest place we stayed across Brac, Hvar and Vis and half the price of the place we stayed in on Hvar.

I have just returned from a four 4 day stay in Hotel Kastil in Bol. The hotel is a converted fortress situated in the busiest part of the town and a 15 minute walk from the famous Zlatni Rat. I found the hotel to be excellent in every way and its staff to be very friendly and helpful. Dining on the upstairs terraced Restaurant Vusio is an experience not to be missed. Views from the terrace are as good as the food. Thank you Hotel Kastil. I will return soon.

Room Tip: The hotel does not have a lift so a room on a lower floor is best for anyone with limited mobility.

From your window sea is 5 meters away. And the boat is 25. Location is unbeatable. The only bar that seems to draw crowds is next to the hotel. Good restaurant downstairs. The only drawback is small rooms. Walk to zlatni rat is 15 minutes. Definitely Recommend for short stays. Longer stays may require a bit more ammenlties.

Room Tip: Stay away from the side of the building that is neighbor to the bar downstairs.

This hotel is right in the center of Bol, close to everything you could want and about a 15 min walk to Zlani Rat beach. The building has been renovated in a tasteful manner, and the terrace for breakfast is fantastic. Our room had a beautiful view of the water. The pizzeria downstairs was great for dinner. Our only complaint was that we only stayed for one night!
