Valamar Argosy Hotel
Ranked #21 of 68 Hotels in Dubrovnik
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 June 2012

Spent 5 nights here and find it very difficult to find any faults. The room (sea view) was light and airy, huge patio windows and door. The bed was very comfortable (and also huge). Bathroom nice and big, overbath shower good but water temp did fluctuate alarmingly.
The food was excellent and varied in the evenings and good value for money. The staff were very polite and helpful. Evening entertainment is aimed at the older client, so if you want livelier evenings then it wouldn't suit. The pool and patio area with bar very very good, great walks from the hotel to very clean pebble beaches and although situated at the end of the Babin Kuk peninsular, very easy trip to the Old City via no. 6 bus.
If not eating at the hotel, there are some good restaurants within walking distance.
All things considered I would recommend this hotel and wouldn't hesitate to return should we revisit in the future.

We would strongly suggest if you are offered a room on the 2nd floor you change immediately , the over the bath shower was dropping off the wall along with all the fittings,it leaked flooding the bathroom, the room looked like something out of the early 50's Butlins Holiday Camps, a few of our party asked to be relocated, we found the third floor had been updated and was more acceptable. The food was ok if you eat meat but not a lot for a veg eater.

Room Tip: third and fourth floor seem to be a better quality

We stayed here as part of a group tour I was leading.

The hotel is clean, the food is good (especially the evening buffet) and staff were helpful.

It is located some distance from the old town but the bus stops just a few steps from the front door so it is easy and economical to reach.

The pool area is lovely and spacious. The pebbly beach is just 10 minutes away walking. One evening there was a gentleman playing his guitar and singing in the garden area which was a nice touch.

I would stay again.

My girlfriend and i are a young couple and we stayed at this hotel for ten nights from 25th may 2012. And overall we were very satisfied!! The hotel is very easy to get to from the airport via the airport shuttle and then the number 6 bus from the outside the old town. Stay on the bus until the very end unlike us!!! The hotel was kept very clean all staff very friendly and helpful!! We had a garden view and asked for a sea view and it was sorted straight away usually for a little extra but we were upgraded for free!!!. The room from 144 was amazing!! The food after 10 nights was still really good and varied!! Breakfast was same every morning but very adequate. The hotel is in a great position on the babin kuk peninsula. Left and right from the hotel has both amazing walks with outstanding views.
Bars and restaurants within a gentle 20 minute walk. Great bus service at your door step. A few pebble clean beaches nearby.
The only thing that lets this hotel down was the lack of good entertainment for the younger guests!! This hotel is geared towards older guests! So if this puts you off then probably not for you.
But we would return!!

Room Tip: Sea view terrace rooms the best!

If you want to spend your holiday in a calm and very pleasant environment you should go to Argosy Hotel in Babin Kuk, Dubrovnik. The staff of the hotel is very friendly, good food and wunderful views of the see. The local bus takes you to the Old Town in minutes.

We stayed at the Argosy hotel for one night after a week long cruise which finished in Dubrovnik so we wanted to spend time looking around the old town before heading to Rome. Our room was very spacious and clean and had free wifi overall was perfect for a quick stopover. The hotel is huge with corridors that seem to go onforever. There seemed to be many senior citizen guests when we were there which was no trouble at all but it was very noticeable with the average age being appprox 60 and we are a couple in our late 20's. The hotels architecture was dated which meant that the pool didn't capture the stunning views of the sea and was in the shade so the pool was freezing. A cab ride to the old town takes half the time in a taxi and costs roughly HRK 60-70. A set fare from the hotel to the airport is HRK 270 and takes about 30mins.

I stayed here for 3 nights as a group (a choir). On arrival we were treated to a complementry glass of sparkling wine on the terrace . The manager intoduced himself to everyone and made us feel very welcome. Our room had a balcony overlooking the bay. It was spotless and I could'nt fault it. On our last night we had a BBQ there and it was a terrific night the food was very good as were the breakfasts each morning. It was in a good location and only 10 minutes by taxi into the old town.
