Booking.com Guest Review GuidelinesTo keep the rating score and review content relevant for your upcoming trip, we archive reviews older than 24 months.
Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This allows us to verify that our reviews come from real guests like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or their comfortable room than someone who’s stayed at the property?
We want you to share your story, with both the good and the not-so-good. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinions and experiences, which is critical in helping guests make informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, so we treat them with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we'll post every comment in full and as quickly as possible, provided the guidelines are met. We'll also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
We'll use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content, and for the property responses to that content.
We'll allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is to be a feedback distributor for both guests and properties.
Guidelines and Standards for Reviews
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly, without limiting expression or strong opinions. They're also applicable regardless of the comment's tone.
Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.
Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language. Comments and media that include hate speech, discriminatory remarks, threats, sexually explicit remarks, violence, or the promotion of illegal activity are not permitted.
All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.
Respect the privacy of others. Booking.com will make an effort to obscure email addresses, telephone numbers, website addresses, social media accounts, and other similar details.
The opinions expressed in contributions are those of Booking.com customers and properties, and not of Booking.com. Booking.com does not accept responsibility or liability for any reviews or responses. Booking.com is a distributor (without any obligation to verify) and not a publisher of these comments and responses.

눉After being dropped off at the grand entrance, I went to check in. The reception staff then escorted me out of the building, down the hill and around the corner to a completely different building! Different to the pictures I saw when booking, different to the write up, different to what I booked. I feel like this is false advertising. I definitely feel cheated. The bed was one of the worst I've ever had, the staff were so unfriendly (except for Toni, the man in the pool bar, who actually smiled even if he couldn't understand my english) I think it comes down to expectations. They had me thinking I was staying in a certain hotel & ended up giving me something else. I was really let down. Will not stay there again.
눇Being on the water's edge. The town surrounding is beautiful. Just not the hotel.
July 31, 2016
눉The room was super hot, and the hot water ran out before 11:00pm. My view from the balcony over looked another roof.
눇Overall I didn't like it to much. The breakfast was ok.The pool area had good energy. And the area for swimming was nice
July 9, 2016
눉I never check that they dont have aircondition in the hotel if they could post that too in the webpage they have maybe that would be a good info..its summer so the room was really like sauna or incuvator its really so hot in the room..
눇Just the pool is ok..but can they open it 24hours?there are guest who like to swim at night too.

눉There is no ac in the rooms which makes it impossible to sleep /breathe. The wifi doesn't work, there's just one plug in the room. Plus there was works in front of the hotel room at 6 am for an hour. The hotel has a policy they won't give u fresh towels before 3 days - so bring your own towels !
눇The view from the hotel room is breathtaking, plus the access to the beach super easy. The walk to the historic town is very nice as well. The staff is nice and wants to be helpful

눉Need aircon or fans in the room.

눉No air con, breakfast not good.
눇The view and location.

눉They do not really like their guests, employees are apathetic and not interested in the business/their jobs, restaurant is very dirty, and after all, for two days accommodation, we paid several euros more than we agreed when we "bought" this accommodation on "Booking.com"
눇Forest around the hotel, smells of the sea and surrounding plants, nature, absolute heaven, hotel heritage, good restaurants and affordable good food downtown
August 25, 2014
눉The hotel is very old, the room is really HOT and the smell is not good. The is no Ar conditional or ventilator, you can´t sleep well.
눇BreakFast, swiming pool and beach access. Also the customer service, they helped us to do early check out because we were not satisfied with the room.
August 24, 2014
눉One has to be strategic about breakfast times. Either you must go when breakfast starts or when it is about to finish. I chose the latter. There are a lot of people milling round all looking for the same things
눇The convenience of the location of the hotel, with a convenient and cheap taxi boat service to the ferry port. The Arkada is an old style Yugoslav hotel and is atmospheric as such. The hotel is next to the beach, very helpful. Many Polish guests, all charming

눉The staff are rude. Not so much in reception they were pleasant enough but their English is almost non existent. The staff in the bar however, are damn right obnoxious. Simply asking for a bottle of water gets met with staff actually leaving the bar area as opposed to serving me. I was actually shocked. I get the feeling that they are poorly paid and incredibly demotivated. That's clearly a short coming from management. Onto the rooms...on several occasions during the nights I was tempted to take the mattress onto the balcony, dousing it in petrol and setting myself alight, just to cool down a bit...it really was that hot. Horribly so. No fan, no air con. One plug socket, there were people with their doors wedged open just to get some air in so it wasn't just us.
눇The views are stunning. Pool is nice. Rocky beach easily accessable and the water is so clean.
August 14, 2014
눉No air con or room fans. Rooms are inferno hot. Terrible food. Run down facilities, 1970's Eastern European package hotel.
눇Ferry taxi boat to town or port.
July 13, 2014
눉We paid extra for a sea view room. I would recommend paying extra to go to Hvar town - infinitely better with far superior hotel options / places to eat / drink / see etc. I would not recommend this place to my worst enemy - we booked 2 nights and VERY nearly left before staying one night.
눇Not very much
July 11, 2014
눉stinky rooms, old furniture, pool closes at 7 pm, wifi is totally unstable, no animations, food below average
눇my 5 yr old dauther says "everything". but really, don't expect anything special
August 23, 2014
눉Very old hotel. Not recommended!
눇The city is perfect. Best food in Croatia!
