TravelPod Member ReviewsKastel Hotel Motovun
We stayed two nights in Motovun, the first at Villa Maria a private apartment that couldn't accommodate us for a second night. We moved to Kastel Hotel and were very happy. The staff is Great: friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable, breakfast buffet plentiful. We enjoyed a spa afternoon, which was a real treat as we were coming to the end of our six-week vacation.
