We stayed here for 4 days from the 11/05/13 - 14/05/13.
Room - We booked a studio sea view room and were given room 33 on the 3rd floor of the hotel facing out from the left hand side of the hotel. The room was lovely and absolutley spotless! It had really modern accessories and a nice clean simple look. Our balcony had a great view overlooking the pool and out to the harbour docking area for large cruise ships and mountian landscape. Was such a nice view only piece that wasnt great was the roof of building directly next to the hotel but nothing they could do about that of course. Was really nice to get up and look out to the water with local church bells ringing in the morning (not close or loud bells). Sleep quality was fantastic with really good air conditioning and very quiet at night. The shower was great with realy high preasure setting to massage your back. The fittings in the bathroom were very modern and botique looking with one big piece of moulded glass for the sink and double sliding door shower. Room was better than what I was expecting. Looks better that in the pics.
Transferes - We got private transferes that were arranged by the hotel for a much better price than I could find anywhere 415kuna there and back to the airport. Believe the driver worked at the hotel too. He was very polite, friendly and professional. Would definatley recommend this service.
Location - The hotel is located one street up from the marina harbour front. It is a 5-10 min bus ride from the old town (any closer and you dont get a seat on the bus as we found out by going a walk along the harbour to the next stop one day). The busses are very frequent and you can get many buses to the old town from here. You cant miss your stop as the old town is the last stop. We walked into the old town on our first day which was uphill most of the way (could have walked along the front that isnt so hilly but we didnt know this at that stage). This was a bit of a trek but not that bad and I hate exercise. There is a little supermarket over the hill and along a bit on the hotel road which is really cheap and worth a visit for supplies. Overall the location was great. Really quiet not far from the old town at all and good views.
Service - This was excellent. Reception always able to give advice and directions. Very friendly and helpfull. The women who served breakfast were efficient and friendly too.
Overall I would highly recomend this hotel. I had concerns about the location but neednt have worried, it looks alot further out than it actually is on a map from old town. It was great value for money and and excellent base to stay whilst visiting the beautiful Dubrovnik.
