We have just spent seven days at the Tirena hotel (6-13/10/12) and would thoroughly recommend it based on our experience.
I suspect that the Tirena hotel is a little older than the neighbouring hotels that are part of the Valamar group and thus it's a little cheaper, but we felt it was a very good hotel and great value.
We were in room 420 with a balcony. The room was spacious, comfortable and very clean. The cleaners came in each day and did a good job. The grounds of the group of hotel were pleasant and there were some bars and restaurants near by.
The food on offer at breakfast time was very good with plenty to choose from. In the evening they did a buffet, but we didn't try it because we went to the local restaurants or into the Old Town.
It has a lovely swimming pool, but the water was cold as its October, whereas the sea was still over 20 degrees. The Copacabana beach is a five minute walk or so away but it is a gavel beach rather than sand.
The Number 6 bus runs every ten minutes throughout the day till gone midnight from just outside the hotel (1 or 2 minute walk) so its never a problem getting to the Old City. If you are there for a week and are planning to do the Old City Wall (you should), I would buy a 7 day Dubrovnik Card for 220 Kn, which includes admission to the Old City Wall, some museums and 20 bus journeys. If you pay on the bus, it's more expensive and they accept only the correct change.
I would recommend doing the Old City Wall (70 Kn), the Cable Car + Museum (117 Kn for both) and the ferry to Lopud island (38 Kn return) while you are there.
Take insect repellent – they are there and they bite.
