Hotel More is a beautiful hotel with amazing views and very friendly and helpful staff. We were given a room with a breathtaking view on the 1st floor for our honeymoon. It was a very nice touch to have a big white bow on the door and a bottle of very good champagne with a personal note in the room. Our view was so nice we didn't leave the room except for dinner for our first day! Our room had a jacuzzi tub, which was nice, although there was no way of turning the jets off from the tub; the switch was next to the light switch just outside of the bathroom, which I thought was strange. The hotel also has a hot tub outside, which I prefer, but when I went one night it was emptied.
The bathroom was nice and the shower was just great with good water pressure and hot water. The towels were also nice and fluffy and a good size, a rarity in many hotels. Unfortunately, this hotel suffers from making the same assumptions as other hotels and never left us an adequate number of towels, so every night we had to call for extra towels. One big problem with the bathroom, though, was the lighting. There is no lighting over the mirror, and the overall lighting is pretty dismal. The fan in the bathroom also seemed to turn itself on randomly. The toiletries were abundant, but pretty low quality. I was very thankful to have my own.
The room also came with robes and slippers, and the slippers came in very handy on the 12-hour flight home! The hotel also provides a local cell phone--a nice touch! The cave bar is also very cool and we had a drink there one night.
The breakfast was OK, although the only tea they had was the equivalent of a lipton tea bag (no green tea) and they seem to put the tea bag in far in advance so by the time I got my tea it was very bitter. We did try the restaurant for dinner on our first night was were sadly disappointed. The restaurant is insanely expensive (as well as everything else in Dubrovnik--be warned), and the food was pretty mediocre. I'm always most excited about dessert, and couldn't wait to try the local creme caramel specialty. But it was awful. It was way too eggey. I think it was only the second time in my life where I didn't finish my dessert.
My main complaints were the beds and the location. The king bed was actually two twin beds pushed together and separately made--separate sheets, separate twin-size blankets, etc. Considering we were on our honeymoon, this made snuggling pretty difficult. The location is great for the sea views, but quite a distance away from Old City and not very easy to get to. The hotel told us to wait for the #5 bus down the road and that the bus came every 20 minutes or so. We waited and waited and waited. After wasting about 45 minutes waiting for the bus, the staff from the hotel behind the bus stop told us that the bus was not running on that route anymore. I was so frustrated with wasting so much time we just grabbed the taxi that was dropping someone off there. Considering the distance, a shuttle between the hotel and Old City would be a great touch. We were also unaware of a great promenade with lots of restaurants just steps from our hotel on the beach side (and by beach, I don't mean beach--there is no real beach at the hotel itself). No one at the front desk mentioned this and we found it accidentally. But we were glad we did find it as we had one of our best meals at Konavoka just down the street!
Overall, a great hotel in a fairly inconvenient location. A shuttle would be a nice addition. And to reiterate, Dubrovnik is pretty insanely expensive--not at all what I was expecting. And since it's such a tourist town, there is a lot of nickel and diming and price gouging. Expect to see a lot of "table setting" charges and cover charges for bread and that kind of thing.
