We loved staying at Vela Vrata Hotel in Buzet! The town is still so authentic, and not inundated with tourists. Our room had a lovely view over the valley below, and we enjoyed having drinks and dinner each evening on the outdoor terrace. If we are ever back in Istria, we would definitely stay here again.

A nice small hotel in an old Istrian town
This is a nicely refurbished hotel in an old building in the old town Buzet and some rooms have a great view of the surroundings. Town of Buzet is away from touristically busy Croatian coast and offers nice opportunities for quiet holidays with great areas for hiking nearby. Staff in the hotel was friendly and helpful when we asked for hiking possibilities and local attractions. The hotel was clean with all necessary amenities and the restaurant where we had breakfast and dinner was great. The only thing we disliked was the water in the pool which was a bit too cold for our standards.

Great Location
Stayed here 2 nights. Very nice hotel in Buzet in ideal hilltop (fortress) location. Very nice to walk around the old village from the middle ages. Good centrally located place to stay if exploring the region. We did a day trip to Pula and Rovinj both very well worth the drive. We got to try truffles (Buzet is truffle capital of Croatia) and purchased some in a small glass jar($50.00) which survived the trip home and through security (they did make us dump out the olive oil (carry-on bag) at Budapest Airport and we put them in our checked bag at JFK (didn't want to take and chances with TSA).

Absolutely wonderful!
The hotel has great beds, comfortable linens and very clean, well appointed rooms. There is also a nice indoor pool which was unexpected. The hotel is situated in beautiful historic Buzet and has a nice restaurant with a bar located down the street. It's a quiet town with great views and a lovely laid-back charm. We had a fantastic and relaxing stay at the Vela Vrata Hotel - highly recommended!

Handy- Next to tourist office. You can eat outside for breakfast and other meals. Highly recommend.
