“Boutique Hotel with incredible charm and tremendous service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2009

This has to be one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in, and once again the TripAdvisor reviews helped us greatly in deciding to stay here over the Imperial Hilton at Pile Gate (despite its superior rating).

To categorize this review into major sections:

Service:
- Hotel staff were always available to help with a restaurant choice or to assist with the booking of tours. You can avoid the lineups at the Pile Gate by buying your ticket direct from the hotel; and they have deals with the tour operators such that small children are often free.
- My daughter hurt her foot on the trip and the concierge offered to carry her to our room. Imagine that sort of service anywhere else!
- The hotel will also arrange private transport to the hotel from the Dubrovnik airport at a cost of around £40 (£70 for a large van for larger families). Again a very nice touch if you wish to spend the money.

Food:
- The breakfasts were perhaps the most extensive we have had. Croatian prosciutto, cereals, made to order omlettes, fruits, champagne, were abundant.
- And for those who like to take a later breakfast the room was open until 10:30 for breakfast which was included in the price of the hotel.
- For a hotel, food and drink prices were competitive and service standards were very good. If you stay in the hotel for lunch, order off the bar menu, which has a great club sandwhich or open faced raost beef sandwich. Good deals, for under £10 apiece.

Amenities:
- Stunning (yet rocky) private beach with ice blue and green waters and beautiful cliffs fit for diving, if you are brave.
- Although a bunch of school kids snuck in after school to go for a swim, they were playing nicely in the ocean and were loud but not really a bother.
- There is a magnificent indoor pool, small workout room (no treadmill, just a cross trainer, rowing maching and bike) as well as a sauna, steam room and massage room. While we did not partake, massages are very well priced compared to other luxury hotels. Again service at the spa was impeccable with towels provided without you asking for them and constant replenishment of bottled water in the workout room, etc.

Rooms:
- We had two standard, connecting rooms which were great for kids.
- Bathrooms were spotless, recently renovated and maintained to the highest order.
- TVs of around 30 inches were wall mounted and various international channels were available.
- Rooms were good size and definitely suitable for small children. Our kids stayed in a second room where three beds were easily accommodated.

Location:
- 1.5 KM from the Pile Gate, and a nice 15 minute downhill walk going, but pretty taxing coming back up, especially after a few drinks. Expect to pay Kuna40-50 for a ride back up from the taxi rank outside the Pile Gate (£6).
- The location is reasonably quiet and close to a residential areas surrounding the premises.
- The facade is glass and extremely modern.

Value:
- We paid Euro190/night for our rooms. A very competitive rate for a top class hotel. This is not a cheap option, but there is definitely value for money as the service standards are outstanding.

Security:
- The entrance to the rooms on the reception floor (i.e. beside the tour desk) are not equipped with a pass code or cardkey requirement. Despite good overall room security, the entrance should be secured. Not a major issue but one that management could easily and cheaply remedy.

The only "negative" is that the hotel, despite its adverts, does not take Euros. This is the same for the entire country; they have the kuna which is approximately 8:1 (£) and 7:1 (Euros). That is not a negative for the hotel really because there is a cash point about a two minute walk away where one can get kunas.

We cannot recommend this hotel more and would suggest that other TripAdvisor readers consider this hotel as a boutique option to one of the larger chain hotels available in Dubrovnik.

Hotel was fantastic and the private beach is a real winner. Walked past a few other places and this one stood out as being the best and I'm all about the grass being greener on the other side too. The Hilton looked a bit cruddy from the back so I would stay here if you are looking for a top place to be. The only tiny complaint is that the air conditioning smelt a bit strange in the room, Can't put my finger on the smell,...kind of like a mix between tea and burnt hair...anyway don't let that put you off - it probably dimished our enjoyment by about 1% and if anything was a conversational piece with my new wife. Hurray!

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel was set on the edge of a cliff and had great views particularly from the glass elevator. The service was friendly and efficient. The hotel was a 15 minute walk from town, which helped you walk off your dinner! although buses were frequent. Our trip was great and we enjoyed looking around the city. If we had any criticism it was that in general, some places were not quite ready for tourists.
Maybe the bus company could have been clearer about times and pick up points going back to the airport. Having said that, we still had a fab time and would unreservedly recommend the hotel.

I advise those interested in this hotel to largely ignore any of the negative reviews below, I am convinced they are completely unfounded or perhaps even faked. This hotel was exceptional in every way imaginable. Very modern and well decorated with a stunning view. It hangs off the edge of a cliff overlooking the beautiful blue of the Adriatic so the view is breathtaking. There is an elevator you can take down to the beach below, and though the water was too cold to swim in April, it was a perfect location to sunbathe. The rooms are a good size with large bathrooms fully stocked with all the necessary toiletries, and including terry cloth robes and slippers. The staff were EXTREMELY nice and helpful and answered all our questions. We had a travel snafu and they even helped us with booking our airfare, very nice. When we booked, I noted in the comments that we were on our honeymoon and not only did they upgrade us to a deluxe room free of charge but they had a chilled bottle of champagne waiting for us in our room, very nice touch! The pool area and spa was also very nice, featuring wet and dry saunas, pool, hottub, massage area, etc. The rates were also very affordable for a 5 star hotel and included breakfast. The breakfast was far from spectacular (typical hotel buffet fare for the heated breakfast...scrambled eggs, bacon, grilled veggies) but they also had a tremendous selection of fresh fruit, yogurts, cheeses, cured meats, breads, pastries, cereals so it was quite nice, especially dining out on the patio overlooking the sea. The hotel is also well located, only about a 10-15 mins walk to the old town or if you're lazy there is a bus stop virtually in front of the hotel that will take you right there. Highly recommended!

We stayed at the Hotel Bellevue for 2 nights in a superior room. This was the 4th hotel we'd stayed in during our holiday in Croatia and was booked for a little luxury at the end of the holiday. The hotel did no disappoint.

The room was stunning with lots of little luxuries- plenty of quality soaps and other bathroom accessories! There is a fancy technological control for things like air-con, telephone etc but best of all, the views are stunning.

The staff are extremely helpful and friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. Breakfast was very varied and high quality.

We found Dubrovnik quite touristy and therefore expensive. In light of that the Bellevue is good value for the town and I would recommend it.
