We spent three nights at the Hotel Berkeley with our two teenaged sons. I chose the hotel based on the price and the room size. We stayed in the Seaview Apartment and it was perfect for us. It has a large living room with pull out couches and a kitchen area with a fridge and stove top plus a table for four. There is a separate bedroom and a separate bathroom. The best part was the huge balcony which overlooks the harbor.
There is a pool which was an added bonus! We did not know about it when we booked. It was lovely to come back in the afternoon after sightseeing in the heat to cool off in the pool. The boys especially enjoyed the pool.
Breakfast is included in the stay which with two boys over 6 feet tall is a great deal.
I knew when I booked the hotel that it was not walking distance to the Old City of Dubrovnik. We looked at hotels closer but none of them would accommodate our family in one room. We simply did not want to spend $1000 a night to book two rooms.
The distance was not a problem for us at all. We are pretty savvy travelers and we figured out quickly that if we took the # 8 bus (stop is directly across street from hotel) it would take us to the Buza gate of the old city. And on the way back we would catch the # 8 bus at the Pile Gate (where the 1A and 1B bus stops) and it would drop us off right at the hotel. Super convenient!
For a 3 star hotel the Berkeley is fantastic! Nicer than we expected! We were very satisfied with our stay and would recommend it to families for sure.
