Budget hotels in Hvar: What to expect while backpacking in Hvar?

In addition to the appealing room rates which compete with the ones you can easily find in Hvar’s hostels, Hvar’s budget hotels offer additional amenities/services you will be more than happy to enjoy:

1.       Delicious buffet breakfast included in the price

Every morning from 7:00 am to 11:00 am you are welcome to enjoy a delicious buffet breakfast with a wide selection of fresh fruits, salads, a selection of cereals, jams, cheeses, yogurts and pastries. This is complemented by ground filtered coffee and tea selection.

2.       Private bathroom & amenities

While more and more European hostels are squeezing boat-type prefab showers and toilets into their rooms, the cheapest rooms still offer only a toilet and shower or tub down the hall, which you share with a handful of other rooms. Since more and more travelers are expecting what were once considered "American" standards of plumbing and comfort, this can be easily found at Hvar’s budget hotels where you can enjoy the privacy of your own private bathroom and essential amenities which will help you reduce your backpacking packing list.

3.       WiFi free of charge through the whole property

Free Wi-Fi and computer terminals became an integral part of travelers’ daily lives and a basic expectation which has been widely taken in consideration by Hvar’s budget hotels. A basic WiFi service is free while an upgraded faster service comes at a cost, but the idea is to keep you connected and updated all the way through your journey.

4.       Location.Location.Location  

The best part about Hvar’s budget hotels is their location, straddling over Hvar’s most picturesque promenade, close to beaches and best sea views all the way to hotels resting in a lush manor surrounded by pine trees. And if you are one of those visiting the island for its nightlife, hip bars and clubs of Hvar's popular city center, you're well placed for an easy stumble into your bed at dawn.

5.       Pool

Some budget hotels feature as well pool facilities with no extra surcharges (sunbeds, umbrellas) included in the price of a room.
