“Nearly a 4 stars”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

Although the hotel is rated as a 3 stars we believe that the 4 stars is not far away. The hotel is located at the peninsula at Babin Kuk which means away from the city and yet so close. It takes only a 15 minutes drive with the bus to the old town and the bus stop is not even a 5 minutes walk from the hotel. It is cheap and it runs every 10 minutes. We had a beautiful and clean room with balcony from where we had a stunning sea view. Breakfast and dinner were excellent and the variety was very good.The staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool was big enough and there were plenty of sunbeds and parasols and bath towels available. Special thanks to Janja and Aleksander at the restaurant and to Niko at the reception desk.
With regret we had to return home after a wonderful 14 day holiday.

This hotel will hold fond memories for us. As has been reported by other guests, it isn't a new hotel but it is beautifully situated, overlooking the sea. The food was consistently good and the staff attentive. You never felt harrassed or encouraged to buy another drink. The evening entertainment was unbelievably good. Of particular note were the sunsets, eating outside, the overall cleanliness and sheer value for money. Of course, the weather is a big plus but the Argosy can't claim credit for that! The best recommendation I can make is the fact we would, without question, return there.

Room Tip: Lower level room smelt a bit damp so we were moved to one with a balcony, immediately and without qu...

The Hotel is rated 3 stars and as much as wanted to dislike the place when I got there, it certainly is worth 3+ stars. The hotel is located away from the old town of Dubrovnik, but on the edge of the peninsula with a great view. Great place to relax and unwind. It has a great walking trail below the pool. Don't miss the sunset from the pool. The breakfast was plentiful, but I couldn't believe they would charge 27 HRk for a glass of fresh orange juice. The rooms were clean and the beds OK. Not luxurios but certainly OK. The air conditioning could be better, but there are ceiling fans in the room which help. The place is big, with lots of sections and staircases and levels and it can be confusing and you can get lost easily. When the place is full, parking is a major problem. The staff try to be helpful, but they can't create space when there is none to be had. I would certainly give it a 3+ rating overall

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday in Dubrovnik, staying at the Hotel Argosy. The hotel is 3 star in most aspects should be 4 star. It is in an amazing location. The view from our lovely comfortable room was stunning. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is beautifully decorated with magnificent views and the food, in quality and variety is excellent. Service in the restaurant in friendly and efficient. There was high quality musical entertainment every evening in the gardens.
When we stayed there the temperatures were very high and we appreciated the air conditioning
and the ceiling fan in our room.
The bus service to the old town is frequent and cheap and takes about 15 mins.

We would love to return to this excellent hotel

4 of us have just returned from a week here, having grown up kids with us for the first time in years we wanted somewhere reasonably priced. As has already been said, the hotel will win no beauty contest, I suspect it was built as a holiday retreat for 'the friends of the party' back in communist days. However this is soon forgotten about, especially when you eat dinner with one of the best sunsets you will ever see. We ate on the lower terrace, surrounded with the smell of lavender, watching the sun slip between the islands, magical!
Good points:
1. Clean inside, well maintained gardens
2. Spacious outside area with plenty of places to sit in the shade.
3. Friendly staff.
4. Good location at the start of the number 6 bus route, you will see how valuable this is when you witness the fight to get on later in the journey!
5. Good food, though as all croatian food seemed to be, a bit 'unspectacular'.

The not so good:
1. Air conditioning struggled to keep the room cool when it was 30+ outside.
2. If you don't like cats, don't eat on the terrace! I don't have a problem, but you might. Semi ferral cats are everywhere in croatia.
3. The dining room would be crowded if you all had to eat there, but this never happened to us as the sun shone all week.
Tips:
1. Get a Dubrovnik card, covers several attractions, including the walls, discounts in restaurants and shops and 10 or 20 bus rides depending on 3 or 7 day card.
2. Walk through the park to get to the bus, the hotel drive is hot and dangerous.
3. The cafes in the little shopping centre beside the hotel are cheap and come alive at night.
4. If a bus back from the pile gate is crowded, get the next one and let the others fight for a space; they run every 5 - 10 minutes.

Overall we would have no hesitation in returning to the Argosy Hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our week.

Room Tip: If you want to sleep before 11, ask for a room away from the bar area and entertainment.

We spent four nights here on our tour and were really sorry to be leaving so soon. The staff were excellent and room and food very good. Because the weather was good we were able to dine on the terrace for breakfast and dinner with beautiful views across the bay. If weather does not permit outside dining it may be a bit claustrophobic in the dining room with so many guests arriving to eat at the same time so would advise dining later or choose the summer months to visit. The local beach is shingle/pebble a few minutes walk but the pool area is excellent with lots of space and plentiful sunbeds. Pool bar does an excellent greek salad for lunch and prices are ok. Had live music entertainment every night in the courtyard garden by the bar. We went into Dubrovnik one evening (bus service really easy to use and runs beyond midnight); can definitely recommend. Lovely atmosphere with streets, walls and towers illuminated; if you're into jazz then the Troubadour cafe bar is the place to have your night-cap. Riviera travel company provided an excellent holiday by the way.
