Hotel Splendid
Ranked #41 of 68 Hotels in Dubrovnik
Reviewed 24 June 2011

Just spent a wonderful week at the Splendid.Staff very friendly and could not do enough for you. Sea view room gives excellent views over the bay Rooms are adequate size bearing in mind this is a 3 star hotel and are more than adequate for two people. Beware of the glass shelf above sink in bathroom. My wife cracked her head on it getting out the bath and on two occassions I banged my forehead on it whilst rinsing my face and shaving.It needs moving to a more suitable location away from sink.

Buffet meals were very good and I could not fault them. Ample choice and variation throughout the week. Hotel is in an excellent location being very handy for local amenities and is only a short bus ride to Dubrovnik with the bus stop right outside hotel

If you are looking for a small and friendly hotel in a great location this is it. Highly recommend and would definately use again if we return to Dubrovnik.

Room Tip: Any seaview room will be good

We picked this hotel from a Thomson's brochure for two weeks holiday in the vicinity of Dubrovnik, to enjoy the the 'Old City' and have a relaxing holiday by the sea. It more than exceeded our expectations with very friendly and professional staff throughout, extremely clean and a superb outlook over the Lapad Bay. The food was excellent although a little short on occasions if you went down later.
The location is ideal for visiting Dubrovnik Old Town. The local buses are excellent and regular every 20 minutes from outside the hotel. Its just a 10 minute journey to the City and if you buy the Dubrovnik 7 day pass, you get 20 journeys included which makes the sightseeing easy and less tiring over several days - and dont forget to visit the magical city in the evening when the cruise ships and coaches have gone!
The area immediately around the hotel is reasonably quiet but with several places to walk and many cafes to explore. All in all this is a must for visiting this beautiful area of Croatia

I have just returned from a 4 night stay at the Hotel Splendid and cannot fault it. From the moment we arrived, we were warmly welcomed by the hotel staff, given a welcome drink and instantly relaxed and enjoyed our holiday. The rooms were clean and many looked out over the beautiful bay. What struck me throughout our stay was the friendliness of the staff. I work in the travel industry and stay in many hotels all over Europe, and although this has a 3* rating, the service we received was 5*
Breakfast was adequate, and there are lots of places nearby to eat in the evening. The location is amazing and the local bus service which leaves from outside the hotel whisks you in to the old town of Dubrovnik within 10 mins, and costs just over £1.

I will definitely be returning and would not hesitate to recommend it to friends and colleagues.

I'll get straight to the point to save your time - don't stay here. Any possible good points are outweighed by one massive negative - the stinky bathrooms. It's not obvious at first - when I arrived, the balcony was wide open along with the bathroom door - wonder why? Close all the doors at night time and the stench becomes overpowering.

Fortunately I was only there one night: had I booked for longer I would have left anyway. I told the reception manager at check out and he gave a half laugh of apology and said that they had some problems with the plumbing. That's an understatement - perhaps they should just demolish the place and start again.

Other thoughts:

Dinner buffet: 6/10 for value and quality
Breakfast buffet: 6/10 - usual choices but poor coffee
PC in lobby: 0/10 - don't bother, it doesn't work

Room Tip: Not 104! Check for poison gas build up in bathroom

nice place to stay and explore dubrovnik and vincinity.
getting there by shuttle bus (35KN) from the airport to pili gate, then buy bus tickets at the ticket counter abnd hop on the #4 'palace'. the bus stops right in front of the hotel. bus tickets are valid 1 hour and cost 8KN.
rooms are clean, service good, breakfast buffet good to start the day.
location - old town is rather a bus ride than a walk, but bus runs frequently, so no problem. staying in old town may be more pittoresque, but getting out of tourist zone for a change and a quite sleep is nice too.
wifi in the lobby works fine and is free.
i liked the restaurant 'teatar' half way between old town and spelndid.

Like all hotels in Dubrovnik, this one is drastically overpriced. Though nicely located with a good view from our room (with balcony) over a bay, unfortunately this doen't make up for its antiquated charme. Lovely people running the place but unfortunately it's part of a chain which causes too many problems: the confirmed price (in writing) was not acknowledged and it took more than 2 months to finally get the refund - not to talk about the hours spent on the phone and in writing emails...

The hotel is like Dubrovnik: best seen from the by-pass road above the city. And: once is enough for life.

the position of the hotel is tranquil in a great setting . the rooms are ok. the food is very ordinary but with a little bit of thought could have been so much better but i must say variety poor and a fair bit of leftovers from day before were served together with the hot food only really being warm. they will try to charge you for anything they can and drinks are a rip off together with £10 per hour for tennis which had to be paid in cash!! please do not be put off dubrovnik because it is beautiful but more a city break than a weeks holiday.
