Hotel Ariston is a cluster of 4 hotels on the coast, great cocktail bar and sunsets at the end of each day, the Hotel room was big, clean and had a great bathroom and awesome power shower. Location great and buses easy to get into old town and harbour areas, but the tickets at reception, you will need two tickets one for each way for each person, if you are there for a 3-day break then the Dubrovnik Card is great and covers all transport, city wall and museums, good value. I would recommend Elite Travel they book excursions and the day trip to Karluca was great, included Ston Walls, boat trip and wine tasting on the way back, well worth it.
Back to the Hotel, indoor pool nice and warm and breakfasts had everything you could think of, good spread and set you up for the day ahead. I have only rated this Hotel as average as the evening meals were not ideal, I was there 4 nights and only really had hot food on one night, as it is a buffett style meal service, it was an art to get the food hot enough on the hot plates and the selections not that good, even I do not like boiled cauliflower most nights :-((
Great Location, and good rooms, you need to ask for the tea and coffee for the rooms and milk from the cafe bar in Reception, as others have said the Reception is busy and does not offer any cozy welcome when the are very busy, the Hotel complex had over 10 coaches arrive one evening, so I can imagine the smile goes quite quickly.
Good Hotel for short break, old town, harour and island hopping, would go back, but only on a B&B choice. Croatia and Dubrovnik both fantastic, please visit and enjoy for yourself. x
