“Lovely hotel with fantastic staff, great location”
Reviewed 23 August 2013

Had a brilliant stay at the Komodor, the staff were all great - very friendly and helpful if you needed anything but also happy to leave you to it and not pester you if not. The room was relatively small but it didn't need to be any bigger, very large and comfortable bed, a massive balcony (room 106), and immaculate thanks to the lovely maid Barbara. We didn't use the pool area as there was plenty of space on the nearby beaches (even in the middle of August!) and the Adriatic was great for a swim. The only problem was the neigbours' bathroom shared a wall with ours and it was quite loud when the shower was on/taps were running etc which seemed to happen early every morning. Breakfast was really good, everything you'd expect to see on a hotel buffet, the evening meal varied each night and was always lovely, and very good restaurant staff.

The hotel is in a great location in Lapad, very close to beaches and the strip of bars/restaurants. Lapad itself had everything we could need and was very reasonably priced and seemed safe - no crime, and nobody pestering you in the street trying to sell you things or begging.

The bus stop is near the hotel and a trip to the old town costs 12 kuna each way and takes 10 minutes. Dubrovnik old town is a must see both day and night, absolutely stunning! Game of Thrones is filmed there. Before we arrived and read that it was 10 minutes we thought it would be in walking distance but unfortunately it's 10 minutes driving on main roads many without pavements so not appropriate for a walk.

Having purposely asked for small hotel with a little character, by beach and amenities, it was exactly what I asked for and more. room ready on 11am arrival, 1st floor room with kingsize bed, doors opened onto pool area with table and chairs for personal use by french doors, air con, house keeping daily by barbara (absolute star, every hotel should aspire to have a barbara). Small uncrowded pool to keep cool in the august heat. breakfast, well what can i say, there was something to please every nationality, same went for the evening meal with differant dishes every night. Very friendly service team with special thanks to Marko and especially Ivan who asked every night what drinks we would like although he knew already and remembered where to put the correct drinks. Probably not the average holiday makers choice with carpets in all bedrooms and such a personal service but for me thats why I will be coming back.A little updating would be welcome in decor but would not put me off coming back at all. Across the road was the park and beach with water activitIes available such as pedaloes, inflatables and sea kayaks. A very cosmopoliton feel to the main street at night, safe, well lit and cheap for drinks. a haven for those who want a cocktail for about £4.50 and a swinging seat to people watch. Local bus stop around the corner takes you to old town Dubrovnik for 12 kuna each way. Thomson tour rep Diana was not lying when she said old town was a different place at night. wow, it felt like being part of a film set, every restaurant table taken, well dressed locals out for the night, young ones enjoying ice cream and the atmosphere was amazing. So many trips to see and do, spoilt for choice. Definately on my list of places to return very soon

Room Tip: thomson 1st floor rooms were lovely opening onto pool area but having read others reviews i would ho...

We have just returned from a vacation in Dubrovnik. We had looked at a number of hotels before hand but booked this one through a package deal.
The location of the hotel in Lapad is ideal, very close to a public beach, about 50M, the local number 4 bus to the old town, also around 50m, and close to a local dining street 100M

I would choose here over a location in the old town as you get to see more of Dubrovnik on a daily basis. The bus ride to the old town is about 10 min and buses are very frequent, every 15 min. Tickets can be purchased from reception costing 12 kuna one way.

The main pluses for the hotel are the friendly and easy going staff, all very competent and all seem fluent in a number of languages. We also found the pool very useful as while we were there the temperatures were in the mid to high 30's C and it was nice to cool down. The pool area was always spotless and never too crowded, which was nice.

The buffet style breakfast was very nice also and plentiful. They varied the hot food on a daily basis too and their mini croissants were delightful.

The only negatives for us were the room which was a little dated and the walls a little wafer thin. Our neighbours bathroom was a little too close to ours! The two bathrooms were back to back and also ours was very small. The only other issue was that the wifi was only available in reception, maybe it could be extended to include the dining area and pool area?

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front of hotel, those at the back have no views, we had a small view out a sid...

This hotel is nicely situated at Lapad and gives you a short walk to the beach (right across the street) and is a short bus ride from the Old Town.

The rooms should be renovated as (at least the one we had) they are dark and looks like nothing has been done since the 80s. The walls are thin and we could hear the people on the room next to us talking. We also were annoyed by employees talking outside our door.

The people at the front desk are helpful, but we were annoyed by one of them trying to overexplain everything that seemed clear. Wi-Fi is only working in the reception-area and should be expanded to also cover the rooms. Luckily it is complimentary.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a balcony.

My husband and I ended up in the Komodor after the hotel we where meant to be staying at was overbooked , and I was not very happy to say the least , but when we turned up unexpected they soon sorted us a room . The staff where very friendly and nothing was to much to much trouble for them .The food was good and lots of it ,with plenty of choice .the pool is small but never over crowed with loads of sun beds tables & chairs . We had room 101 which lead out on to the patio and right by the pool , we believe in the end we where lucky to stay in the the Komodor hotel as it turned out to be a great holiday

This was our first visit to Croatia, and we will definitely be returning. The Komodor is a great base for Dubrovnik, as it is away from the hustle and bussle, but within a few minutes of everything you need to see. the main Boulevard and beach are less than 5 minutes walk,with plenty of places to eat and drink while soaking up the atmosphere, and the old town is a 10 minute bus ride, which stops within yards of the hotel.
we booked through an agent, and we were initially placed in a small dark room at the back of the hotel, but when we spoke to Boris and Matco on the front desk, they went out of their way to move us to a much nicer room at no extra cost, as we were staying for 2 weeks.
Barbara the house maid was absolutely wonderful, very friendly, helpful, and efficient, our room always kept spotless and tidy.
The room was quite nice, with kingsize bed, air conditioning, and french doors to a large balcony area with table, chairs and brolly. plenty of storage space, hair dryer, phone and tv(which we never used, as there is plenty to do) ours only had a shower, which was ok for us, but some of the rooms have a bath too.
The buffet breakfast and dinner was plentyful and delicious, and the waiting staff very friendly and efficient. Marko in particular was great, and took great care of us.the dining area is a comfortable and clean balcony area covered over with vines, and although it's close to the road, was not noisy.
The pool is small but very clean, and has sun loungers tables and chairs around it, so a good place to relax, sunbathe and get to know other guests.
Over all, the Komodor has a lovely old fashioned part of the family feel about it,very helpful and friendly staff who work 7 days a week for 6 months of the year,is clean and tidy, and we will be going again.

Room Tip: the rooms at the front of the hotel have nice views, most with balconies, though the 1st floor rooms...

Liked the hotel, staff were very helpful. Pool area clean. Bad thing room 110 dark and dingy. Nowhere to dry clothes, and needed light on at all times. Previous residents had complained and were moved so presumably we may have moved but we weren't intending spending a lot of time in the room so just put up with it. Breakfast was nice.

Room Tip: Don't go into 110. Dark and dingy.
