“Nice hotel on top of hill town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

This hotel is great, if you don't mind the hike uphill to get there. I suppose the hotel shuttle can pick you up but we walked. The scenery from the top of Motovun is wonderful and you get a continuous stream of it along the way walking up. The hotel is an older property but has been kept up pretty well. The room we had was comfortable; and since this is in a hill town, was completely quiet after dark.

We stayed here for 2 nights.
The location of the hotel and the view are fantastic. Very difficult to find another hotel with such view.
The people that work here are so helpful, always with a smile on the face.
I recommend to stay here, saw some rooms and I think that all of them are similar in size and with a spectacular view.

Hotel Kastel is located in the center of Motovun, a wonderful village in the center of Istria. The hotel is in an old house but equiped with all the modern comfort. The staff is efficient and welcoming. The room was big, clean and well-equiped with a beautiful view on the central square of Motovun.
Parking is available outside the walls of the town and, if necessary, a shuttle could pick you up there with your luggages.
The breakfats buffet was excellent with fruits, cheese, eggs and bacon...
There is a restaurant at the hotel too. Some typical dishes are available as risotto with black truffles. A very good address for the gourmet diner. An excellent address for a stay in this beautiful region.

Very nice hotel in the center of this small hilltop town. I expected it to be quite pricey in this location, but is certainly isn't. Had a nice few days with friends in this location and the hotel was certainly meetin all our needs. Good restaurant, nice pool and spa area and a nice terrace at the main square with an excellent vista. I can truly recommend this Hotel.

In the hotel Kastel I was in the winter, when it is not such a great rush of tourists in Istria. There, my wife and I spent a few days and see how it looks to stand high above the fog that covered the entire area around Motovun, leaving Motovun under the sun rays.
The hotel was completely OK, people who work there are wonderful, friendly. In price we had included breakfast which was quite plentiful, and dinner we're on two occasions ordered and the food was excellent at a reasonable price.

The only small criticism on curtains and carpets ... outdated ...

After finishing trail race "100 miles of Istria" Spa & Wellness in hotel Kastel was just the thing I needed. Pool & spa area is very clean and ambiental. Room was quiet and I slept very good and long, also during the day. Breakfast buffet had literaly everything and I ate and ate and ate :) Price was very reasonble for what I've got. I've took a little walk around Motovun, not tu much because I was tired and I was in Motovun before. Tried some red wine in one of the shops and find out from a local how the thing with truffell collecting is done. It is peacefull place and the hotel is perfect for "base camp" when you're exploring Istria, by car or also by bike.

We had a very nice stay at Kastal Hotel in the hill-top town of Motovun in Croatia.

The rooms were pleasant, the pool was very nice during a heat-wave, and the staff were helpful. The breakfast room included seating both inside and out.

The best part of this was staying in this beautiful, quiet hill-top town. We walked the city walls, enjoyed someone practicing singing in their home on the square, and had a great meal.
