We visited the Argosy hotel twice during August, for 2 days at the start of our holiday in Croatia and then for 3 days at the end of our stay and were very pleased overall. The hotel is in a very pleasant location, with beautiful views over the Adriatic.
The two standard rooms we stayed in were absoloutely fine, clean and reasonably well equipped, although the first room needed a little TLC. The bathrooms in both cases were excellent, quite spacious, having a modern basin and shower over the bath. Air conditioning was fine. Doors to rooms are opened by keys, which we thought was a very old fashioned method and needed updating.
The pool area was pleasant and clean and there was plenty of space, with fresh towels to use, but we felt it could be improved visually.
The dining area was excellent, although we only sampled breakfast. There was an excellent choice, much better than the 4 star hotel we also stayed in whilst in Croatia!
The staff were lovely, very firendly and helpful.
The hotel location was good, although the area is fairly quiet, but there is easy, cheap and regular bus transport into and out of Dubrovnik Old Town. The buses can get ridiculously crowded, however.
There is a small shopping area a couple of minutes from the hotel, with a few bars and we also found a decent restaurant in very pleasant surroundings across the park from the hotel.
Overall we felt the hotel was good and with a bit of updating would possibly be closer to four than three star accomodation.
