“Great stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014

We stayed here in June 2013 and I wish I had written a review sooner. I travel quite a bit for work and often stay in upscale hotels but this was a different trip with just me and my teenage daughter who wanted a more casual, authentic experience. This was a great place for us to stay and the hosts were absolutely wonderful. They answered all of our questions and arranged some day trips for us. The room was not large but it was attractive,spotless and had everything we needed, including a fair size balcony with a table and wonderful view. The walk to town is about ten minutes and there is a small market not far from the place. All in all a great stay.

Stayed May 2014, travelled with family

We stayed for three days. The ownerTonce upgraded us to a better room at no extra cost. He also took our luggage to the bus station for us when we are leaving saving us a tough townhill walk. The rooms are very good,comfortable and spotless and the balcony with a fridge is marvellous. The views are superb. I was able to walk to a beach each morning for a swim though it is a bit of a hike back.

Room Tip: Get one of the front rooms. The balcony view is wonderful.

This was our third stay in Hvar, and this certainly was the best hotel so far. We stayed in room nr. 3 and had a spectacular view from the big balcony, you can’t get a better view of the port from any other hotel in Hvar. The room was clean and the standard was ok for us. If you want a 5 star hotel you have to go somewhere else. The staff (mother) cleaned the room every second day and we got new towels when we needed. The staff helped us with everything we wanted, and we became quiet familiar with Violeta’s. Everyone should try the romantic dinner for 2 at the balcony, witch they offer to all their guests. We surely will come back to this hotel next time we will visit Hvar.

This was my third trip to Hvar, and on two previous occasions I stayed at Amfora which is supposedly the best hotel in town. Always travelling with a group of friends, Amfora was an easy pick again, but the prices there have gone through the roof. EUR 300 for a basic room in an average 4* hotel is just too much, you would expect way more if you pay that price. They offered no group discounts as well.

We then started looking for private accommodation halfway between the old town and Hula Hula beach, the two spots you normally end up in if you stay on the island. We had to accommodate nearly 15 people in a busy month of August, and luckily I came across Violeta in the early stages of planning. The owners took over the planning side from me, managing to accommodate all our friends, as well as organise activities and offer pick-up service for some of them at a very short notice.

Apartments / rooms as well are neatly presented, clean, and have everything you need for the stay. As mentioned above, the owners are very friendly and helpful, and location is very good as well - 5 minutes from both twon centre and Hula Hula beach, and 3 minutes away from supermarket. With its position on the hill, Violeta also offers some beautiful views over the town and the sea from spacious terraces / balconies.

Great stay and experience, and was very sad to leave on the final day. One thing I'll know for the future though is where to book next time I end up in Hvar.

Do not forget that you have not paid for this when you leave. They do not take card payments but expect cash on your departure. The room had awesome air conditioning, was clean and the view was awesome. The location is a 10 minute walk from the harbour and restaurants that is great on the way down but slightly awkward on the way up. They have a communal kitchen sink area with cutlery provided that you are expected to wash up after use. There was no obvious kettle available and no washing up liquid to wash dishes.

This was a great little guesthouse only a short walk from hula hula beach and the main town. The owners were very helpful and the rooms were very clean. Overall a great little place and good value for an expensive island.

We stayed here for three nights. The accommodation in Hvar seems to be very expensive so price wise I would say it is one of the better options of places to stay in Hvar, but if this was somewhere else I would just think it was okay.

Good Points:
Location is good (yes it is uphill from the old town but its really not too bad), it is very close to a supermarket to get items for breakfast etc, close to Hula Hula Bar and Falko Bar and the nice beach areas beside.
Service was good - very friendly on arrival, lots of info with map provided, staff were always pleasant and welcoming
Very clean.
We had our own terrace to eat breakfast on, but there is also a nice sheltered one with kitchen items etc to be used.
Place beside Violetta does excellent reasonable priced pizzas.

Negatives
It was quite hard to find, especially struggling uphill with heavy backpacks
For the price it is quite basic
The hot water in the shower disappeared really quickly
There was a locked door off our bedroom door that seemed to be connected to a corridor in the main house, as this corridor had a door constantly open to the terrace it was really noisy in our bedroom from people on the terrace.
The air conditioning is right above the bed, which meant after a few minutes at night you were freezing.
We probably should have been told that the Ultra music festival was on very close by when booking - it was loud at night.
Guests should probably be told there is an Alsation on the premises (a lovely friendly one) but I think you should be informed.
We asked if we could leave our luggage in reception on the day we were leaving as our ferry wasn't until the evening, we were told that was no problem and it would be looked after. When we returned we walked into the reception and no one was there when we took our luggage - it could easily have been taken by someone else.

All in all I think the standard is average, but if I was going to Hvar again I probably would still stay here as it is clean, friendly and competitively priced.
