Before visiting Dubrovnik I deliberated at length over which area to stay in. Post visit I am pleased to say I made what I consider to be the right choice.
This hotel is situated in a quiet area overlooking the sea and yet within a short walk from restaurants and bars.
The number 6 bus stops right outside the hotel which takes you into the Old Town. The service is frequent and reliable. Tickets for the bus can be purchased at the hotel's reception.
The hotel is rated a 4 star but I would consider it to be more of a three star but definitely with 4 star potential. It is a quiet and relaxing hotel and I enjoyed my stay here very much.
I found the bed to be very comfortable for me and had the best nights sleep I have had for years. I am a light sleeper and there was no street noise or noise from other rooms. The air conditioning was just right and so quiet it caused no problems.
The breakfast was adequate, with sufficient choice for my needs, but nothing out of the ordinary.
My only gripe is that the wi-fi is only available in the bar/restaurant and reception.
The staff were friendly and helpful when approached.
I did notice though that when our taxi arrived to take us to the airport the man on reception just shrugged and didn't attempt to find out who he wanted.
One evening there was no-one around for us to pay our drinks and so we put the money into the wallet and left it on the bar. About half an hour later we were chased into the street and accused of not paying our bill. We went back to sort it out and the barman found the payment – just a shame he didn't check first to save us the embarrassment.
I stayed here for 4 nights and I would and probably will, stay here again.
