First of all, I hate big, commercial hotels that have no personality in them, and wherever possible, I try to stay at smaller, boutiquey hotels. This one was no exception. It's a former noble's summer retreat, and is very classy. The people at the main desk all spoke great English, and were very helpful in answering whatever questions we had. Our room, number 11, was right across from the elevator and right over the main lobby, so I had fears that it was going to be noisy. I couldn't have been more wrong! It was very quiet, and I slept like a rock! The hotel is right across the harbor from where all the ships come in (we used it to stay the night before our cruise on the Adriatic Pearl), and so is just a short cab ride to that departure point. Also, while it looks far away from the old city of Dubrovnik, it's really just a short cab ride (10 minutes maybe?) for about 65 Kuna, or almost $11. You could probably walk it, but it was hot, and it's a little hilly, so why do that? Also, the lady at the hotel told us that we could take the bus back (the number 6, right in front of the Pile Gate), so while it was a little crowded, it wasn't too bad and was kind of a fun adventure.
The hotel's food was very good (we had the complimentary breakfast), and you basically tell them what you want off of a very big menu and they bring it!
They do a lot of little things that bump them up to the top, like umbrellas by the door if you want to use one, or chocolates on the pillow or things like that.
