The Villa Glavic is, just as some other neighbouring 'villa's' part of the Grand Villa Argentina. The Glavic rooms are located just across the road from Argentina's main entrance (which is located on the 6th floor!). You have to climb some stairs in order to reach the Glavic. The rooms are well equiped, with all the usual (four or five star) amenities. Rooms are a bit on the small side, but bath room is quite spacious (at the least in our room). The hotel is just a short walk (about 10 minutes; alongside a fairly busy one-way street) from the beautiful historic center of Dubrovnik (UNESCO-site), which makes for an excellent location. The views from the breakfast area (outside) are stunning, with views over the old town, and a small island just opposite to the hotel. Quite often you will see cruise ships floating in the waters close to the hotel. All facilities of the Argentina are open to visitors of Glavic. This also applies to the pleasant swimming pool area at the sea side. To reach this, you have to use the large elevator (the small doesn't go there), and then walk through a tunnel.
I think Glavic is an excellent alternative to the Argentina: same facilities and location, but generally a bit cheaper. Also, I noticed that some rooms in the Argentina are poorly located (e.g., overlooking the breakfast area). A few critical comments: the staff (reception and restaurant) is not particularly friendly or communicative. In addition, there is a school nearby. This means that at certain times, you will hear school kids making a lot of noise outside (while waiting for the bus; the bus stop is located just in front of the Glavic, which is actually also quite convenient for the hotel guests).
