I had been reading reviews of Hotel Lero since April, knowing that we would be staying in Dubrovnik for 2 nights in July. I was put off by the comments on the parking garage construction noise from earlier in the year, but these disappeared as it got closer to our trip. We had been advised that if we didn't want to go up and down steps for accommodation in the Old Town, that we might want to stay within walking distance of the Pile Gate. After doing lots of research, I made a reservation at Hotel Lero for a twin-bedded room.
We arrived in the early evening on July 18, after a very long day. The person we spoke to at the reception desk could not have been more helpful. He advised us to walk to the Old Town and take the bus back to the hotel, since the trip back is uphill, and we were able to get our bus tickets right there at the hotel. We did this the next day, and it worked out perfectly.
Our room was on the small side, and was on the 5th floor of the renovated building, set back from the road. We had a view of the ocean and we did not notice traffic noise (and I am sensitive to that). The wifi worked. The bathroom layout was cramped but manageable. The breakfast in the restaurant on Saturday morning was just fine. We did not eat dinner in the hotel, but rather walked a short distance to Vapor Restaurant down the road and had an absolutely fantastic meal there on the terrace. Worth saving up to go there.
We had a 6:30am flight from Dubrovnik to catch on Sunday morning, and when we spoke to the desk staff Saturday night, they organized a taxi for us and let us pay for it at the hotel. They also asked us if we wanted to have a breakfast bag since we would be leaving too early to have breakfast. All in all, they made it very easy for us to get to the airport and also have some food to eat.
I swam in the pool which was small as many people have stated; however, my purpose was to cool off after walking around the Old Town for several hours, and not being a sunbather, I did not linger. It was nice to be able to take a dip in the pool. My partner used the gym facilities.
I would stay here again having been there. Some rooms are clearly going to be noisier than others, so it's smart to heed the room tips given by others. The reception staff were great.
All in all, this was a good experience.
