We stayed at the hotel the first week in June 2013. We had a side sea view room on the 6th floor and it was super. The room was modern and clean and although the balcony was on the small side, it was big enough for two chairs. The room had air conditioning, which worked very well, and TV with a couple of news channels in English. The bathroom was modern and spacious with a very good shower over the bath. We had seen some reviews that you have to use 2 lifts to get to the higher floors. Yes you do, but the first lift is only for one floor and if you are able bodied you can just nip up the stairs opposite for one floor...not an issue for complaint in our view. The food was excellent with a good choice for breakfast (continental and English) and the buffet evening meal provided enough choice for all tastes. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and most spoke very good English (which in a way did make us feel very guilty that we did not need to use the local language). Perhaps the only minor issue with the hotel was that we had to pay 5 Euros per day for tea/coffee facilities in the room and they were unable to provide decaf coffee, despite it being available in the restaurant. The local restaurants are a short walk away...out of the hotel front door, turn left and keep following the road around to the left. There is a shorter route, first left along Eugena Kumicica, up the steps, diagonally across a small car park. The location of the hotel is good, about a 30 minute walk to old town Dubrovnik or you can catch the no. 6 bus which runs every few minutes and stops outside the hotel. The Babin Kuk/ Lapad peninsula is ideal for a gentle stroll around the coastal path. Dubrovnik town itself is an experience not to be missed and a walk round the walls is a must. After nightfall the bars,restaurants and music come into their own. We went on two day trips, one to Montenegro which was worthwhile, but the second to Mostar in Bosnia-Herzegovina was a waste of time, especially as we were kept waiting at the border for just short of two hours going and nearly an hour coming back. When we got to Mostar the "ancient" bridge is nearly new having been rebuilt just a few years ago. Mmmmmm! Would we recommend this hotel? Yes, most certainly.
