This was our third visit to the hotel and we found it even better than before. Although our room was rather small for 2 people it had been refurbished recently and was well laid out so storage was adequate. We had a wonderful view from our room which was a bonus. We were on half board basis and had the... More

We had one of the best laugh out loud moments of our trip. Christopher picked us up with our luggage at the lower carpark. after arriving at the Kastel hotel he unloaded our luggage and then snuck around the corner and popped up behind the desk with a hearty WELCOME to the Hotel Kastel. Reminded us of Faulty Towers. That... More

We stayed here on our bike ride through Istra. Very nice room that was pretty good sized. Nice, modern bathroom. Staff was friendly and the breakfast was good. They even had scrambled eggs with truffles! Staff was disappointed we did not come here for dinner.

A good 15-minute brisk uphill walk from the carpark to get to the hotel at Motovun hilltop village. Modern room we had was compact but with a good size bathroom, good air conditioning - recently renovated. Numerous restaurants closeby with good views of the surrounding countryside. Car traffic access is limited to local residents.

Perched on the top of the hill in the middle of Motovun, with great views of the valleys around, this hotel is a very adequate place to stay. The rooms are small and basically furnished. The breakfast buffet is extensive and good. Dinners are adequate though not inspired. Staff is cheerful and helpful.

STayed with GF for one night here in Aug 2016. If you're staying at the hotel you can park half way up the mountain (on the street) which reduces your trek a wee bit. I think there is a shuttle which can take luggage, we were happy enough to keep outs. Motovun itself is small, but beautiful. The hotel is... More

The only hotel in Motovun with a pool is set at the top of the town, just near the main square. It has 33 rooms, so it's not big, no massive tourism here. :-) The hotel offers the baggage service since it's really uphill and you're not allowed to go there by your own car (instead you get a parking...

Had an enjoyable evening meal here tonight. One has to park on the hilly road approaching the town and walk the last couple of hundred metres. It is a pleasant walk but would be quite gruelling in the heat of the day so we were glad we came early evening. If we came later we would have had a longer... More
