We stayed in a superior room overlooking the pool and the sea, which was very nicely furnished and very quiet. Breakfast choice was very varied and plentiful, but only ate an evening meal in the hotel once, after returning from a very long day trip to Montenegro. To be honest, the meal was only average at best. The Hotel is ideally situated for local buses(No 6 -Babin Kuk stops just outside the Hotel) costing a set price of 12 kunas to travel within Dubrovnik. These tickets are available from local kiosks, otherwise pay 15 kunas directly to the bus driver. The old town is very Cosmopolitan, with lots and lots of reasonably priced restaurants. There are also several museums, and a walk around the city walls is a must, but try and do this early or late in the day, when it's a little cooler. We enjoyed the cable car ride up the mountain at sunset for an incredible view. Around the Hotel are several very good restaurants serving excellent cuisine.
"Nice apartment situated perfectly in the old town"
The room is adequately sized for two average sized people and in a high standard of keeping. The beds were comfortable. Bathroom is a good size with a large powerful shower. The kitchen is basic but provides more than enough facility for basic cooking. A TV, free wifi, a washing machine and air conditioning were included. The land lady greeted us warmly on arrival and provided a very thorough introduction to the city. We made good use of our time so did not see much of them, but any queries were responded to very quickly through email. A good iron and board was provided promptly on request. The room was cleaned daily and bedding changed mid-stay. The apartment is less than a hundred meters or so from both the main street and one of the three gates into the city. Good double glazing ment noise was minimised when closed although internal noise did seem to carry. Previous reviews did mention smell from the drains which was noticeable when we arrived but not a problem for the rest of our stay. Perhaps we flushed enough water to keep smells a bay.
While the hotel is clean, beautiful, has great breakfasts and is one of the best located hotels to tour the old city, what really made it was the personal touches. It was my wife's birthday during our stay and the hotel delivered flowers and a cake to our room, complements of the hotel.

Convenient for old city with great terrace by the sea for swimming and sunbathing. We were probably unfortunate in that our room had no view, seemingly tucked in a corner at the back of the hotel but we barely spent any time in it. If a view is important be sure to ask for one.
