“very good for a 3 star hotel”
Reviewed 20 May 2010

- close to old town, 15 min. by bus just infront of the hotel, runs every 15 min.
- very good breakfast !
- small pool but who needs a pool as you have perfect beaches around.
- 10 min. walk to beaches.
- Make sure not stay at 4xx numbered rooms, very old windows , wind blows inside !
- very friendly staff, upgraded our room as we were freezing !
- Great night shows ! Every night live music ... It was lovely.
- Hotel lobby drink prices were very good ! 1 euro 1 espresso ! 2 euro 1 glass of red wine !
- Very clean !
- Too much noise in the mornings ! If you want to sleep till 10 or more make sure get your ear plugs with you.

Stayed May 2010, travelled as a couple

Stayed at the hotel Argosy with friends during the first week of May. Used booking.com to make reservation and got a great price 292 euro's (per room) for 3 nights bed and breakfast, That was for a sea view room , well worth upgrading the views are spectacular. Hotel is very friendly, clean and tidy, we got the no 6 bus from just outside the hotel into Dubrovnik old town, takes approx 10 mins. You can also walk into the local town (LAPAD) from the hotel Neptune, path that follows the ocean all the way downm a beautiful walk. Lots of great restaurants there the 'CASA' is the best and it's te first one you come to as you get to LAPAD. The house wine (red) is one of the best i've had anywhere in the world.

i cannot express in words the sheer delight at having discovered this fantastic hotel. the staff were so helpful and polite especially as we had to stay a further four days due to the icelandic ash cloud. the management and reception staff did all they could to help and advise us at this stresfull time we should very much like to return to the argosy hotel again.

We stayed at the Argosy as part of a Riviera Travel Group during the second part of an excellent tour of Croatia. It was most a real let down after the hotel we stayed in at the beginning of the week. The bedroom walls were paper thin, the shower flooded the floor every day and the room was very utilitarian. The hotel is on the Babin Kuk peninsula a good 15 minute or more bus ride from Dubrovnik and has obviously been refurbished to try to make it look modern. The bar prices were expensive and the dining room can only be described as cavernous and canteen like. It is also very noisy and you have to be quite competitive to help your self to the food !!!! Elbows out!!! Not very relaxing I have to say.

There was also a strange area behind the hotel. A concrete jungle with a derelict building.

We stayed here as part of a tour group. We and other couples were disgusted with our rooms on arrival and we eventually settled for the best of the worst after looking at three other rooms. We were told our tour group only paid for standard rooms. These resembled dirty and outdated student bedsits, most with heavily stained carpets. Try for a room with a laminated floor if possible as these appear cleaner. Decent enough food in the restaurant but nothing to write home about, a decent pool, a convenient bus service into Dubrovnik, and a nice boardwalk to the nearest town nearby. Definitely not somewhere I would seek to stay again.

Reviewed 3 November 2009

Stayed for four nights as part of Riviera Travel package to Croatia. Hotel is remote from Dubrovnik (80 minute fast walk) and they didn't offer a shuttle. Rooms dated but the real downer is the catering - awful canteen like facility and mediocre food. Eat early and it's a scramble for seats, eat later and food choice is restricted and you sit amongst the debris of earlier diners' meals. We were there at a quiet end of season time - high season must be even more horrendous. Hotel is way below Riviera's usual standard.
Avoid!

Reviewed 30 October 2009

This hotel occupies a large area on the northern part of the Lapad Peninsula a fair ways from old town Dubrovnik,but still within the city limits. A bus runs regularly from about one and a half blocks from the hotel to the edge of the old town,as far as vehicle traffic can go. The hotel occupies a very large area,but has a split personality;the common areas of the hotel are very nice,but the individual guest rooms are in serious need of maintenance. My wife and I stayed there 4 nights from October 2 to October 5 of 2009. The first night, a Friday,for some bizarre reason the hotel had a band playing in the lobby until 10:45p.m. Of course we could not fall asleep due to the noise. I think 10:45p.m. is a bit late for this sort of thing. The wind picked up during the night and quickly revealed that the pane of glass in our rooms sliding glass door was loose and rattled loudly all night. We got hardly any sleep.At 5:00 a.m. I went to the front desk and asked if we could switch to a different room for our remaining three nights. The night manager was very accomodating and gave us a different room and even said they would send bellhops to transfer our luggage,even though I said I could do it myself. But she insisted,then handed me the key to the new room (they had about 10% vacant rooms the previous night). When I went to check the new room,in a different part of the hotel,the sliding glass door was wide open and the wind was howling through the room. I went to close the sliding glass door and could not. About that time a bellhop showed up and was unable to close it also. She called the front desk and told them the sliding door was broken and would need repair. So the night manager gave us a third room. This one was tolerable,although this rooms sliding glass door was difficult to open and close. I found out later in the day that a number of other couples in our group tour went to the front desk after me to request new rooms due to maintenance problems. Our Croatian guide said she hopes one of the large American hotel chains will buy this hotel and fix it up,as she stays there regularly and feels it is in urgent need of maintenance or remodeling.Many of the other hotels in the Dubrovnik area have been bought by western hotel companies and remodeled. If you think I am too picky we stayed at 5 other hotels on our Croatia trip and I have nothing negative to say about any of those five. And in fact the Argosy has many good features;a semi-private beach (although a bit of a walk from the hotel ),nice outdoor swimming pool and whirlpool,nice lounge area and bar. And the restaurant is terrific. Would I stay here again? I would pobably hope to stay at one of the other nearby hotels,but staying here again would not be the wost thing in the world.
