We were very pleased with our room. We had a view of the court yard, church and bell tower. The bed was very comfortable and the air conditioner was very efficient. The breakfast buffet was also very good. I would recommend this hotel if you're in the area.

The quaint hotel is situated at the top of the hill and offers gorgeous views of the surrounding area. Our room was spacious and comfortable, the staff was helpful and the food at the restaurant was good.

It's summer and there was no AC (one desk fan is NOT the same!), so I was perfectly miserable during our stay. But the hotel staff were lovely and super helpful assisting us with wineries to visit. The pool was beautiful. The rooms, while small (and warm), were clean. A perfect hotel for fall and spring visits to Motovun.

The hotel is located in the middle of Motovun at the top of the hill, and we would not really consider any other accomodation if visiting Motovun. The room and the rest of the hotel hax a fair/nice standard and we had a comfortable stay. There is a nice wellness area with indoor pool, which is a pleasant alternative when...

Big, quiet room with a great view of the area from on top of a mountain. The spa facilities were great and reasonably priced. Breakfast was included and it had a wide variety of choices. The staff was bi-lingual and friendly… except for the gentleman that checked us in, he had a lot of attitude. Luckily he wasn't there the...

We stayed here two nights and enjoyed the hotel very much. Our room was very comfortable. The hotel staff was friendly, and the breakfasts are excellent with a great variety of delicious food. There's also a pleasant outdoor restaurant that features truffle dishes. As far as the location goes, it's a bit difficult to get to the hotel from the...

We stayed at Hotel Kastel for 2 nights as part of a tour. It's in a beautiful setting high on a hill and the trip up to it was lovely. We were expecting good views all around, however nobody on our tour had any view at all. We looked out at an air shaft on one side, and if you...

Our arrival in this tiny hill town was marred by the incredibly rude driver who directed us ( rudely) the parking place, all the while shouting into his cell phone and which continued even after he had deposited us at the hotel. However on arrival at the reception desk the entire situation changed and charming, helpful Katerina welcomed us with...

I had a pleasure of staying at this place for a wedding. The staff was going out of their way to cater to a big wedding party. Nothing was a problem for them.
