Room was okay, bed was not the most comfortable (softer pillows would be nicer). I could not access wifi from my room, either had to stand at the end of the corridor or go outside around to the restaurant where I got a good signal.

I had one night in Dubrovnik so wanted to choose a convenient hotel. Sesame was just a short walk from the Pile gate which made it easy for late night and early morning explorations of the walled city. The hotel was basic and the art around the room was local and interesting. I found the room comfortable enough and very... More

I stayed one night. The location is obviously what sold me. I stayed by myself in a room that had 2 twin beds. It was a rather sparse room; the beds were a bit narrow, with thin wool blankets. The floor was a bare wood floor with a small bedside rug. I was cold when I woke up.The bathroom, though... More

My wife and I stayed at the Sesame for the 2nd time on a recent trip to Croatia, and are very impressed with the warm hospitality, comfortable room and delicious food in the restaurant. The location just a minutes walk from Pile Gate is unbeatable. While the property is on a relatively busy street, the room was quiet and faced... More

Dubrovnik's Old City is a must for anyone travelling to Europe, but it is difficult to wheel luggage around and find your room. This is why Sesame Inn is perfect. You can literally get a taxi to your front door and look down the street to see the main entry to the Old Town. Saves you alot of walking and... More

We stayed there 3 nights at the beginning of July. Location is perfect. Our experience was very good there because of the location and because of the magic of Dubrovnik. But I just want future customers to be careful with the room # 2. When the owner says by email the double bed of room #2 is QUEEN SIZE bed,... More

Well located only about 500m from the Pile gate to the Old Town. It was excellent to be able to wander into the old town, on a whim. This allowed us to avoid the crowds, heading home when too busy, but returning when the crowds died down. Owner and staff, though polite, were unhelpful, without any offer of help for... More

It's true that the inn is located close to one of the gates of the old town, the rooms are decent and quiet, and the price is good for Dubrovnik hotel standards. However, my experience was that this place severely lacks customer service. I was there twice for several days at a time and consistently I found the staff to... More

I stayed here for a total of 4 nights in two different rooms. Each room was clean, fairly large with decent views. The real great thing about this place is the location. You couldn't ask for better. Just a three minute walk to the Old Town (and just a three minute walk away from the crowds of Old Town.) The... More

The location of The Sesame Inn couldn't be better, being only a few minutes away from the Pile Gate. It was wonderful to be able to wander in to the old city at any time of day. This meant that we could choose the best restaurants and venues to explore and we could thus make the best use of our... More
