We told the staff at Hotel Splendid that we'd recommend their hotel: that's what we're now doing! We stayed from May 22nd to June 2nd (sorry we're a bit late posting this!).
We chose the hotel because it looked small and intimate, where we would not just be a number, insignificant to the staff. How right we were. They couldn't have been more helpful, polite and friendly, whether at the main desk, in the dining room, in the bar, or cleaning our room. There is no lift, but the receptionist offered to carry our cases up to our room. This was well equipped with a comfortable bed, desk and chairs, en suite, air con., etc. and the balcony (for which we had paid extra through Balkan Holidays) gave us a stunning view down the coast.
The food (breakfast and evening meals) was self-service. We always had plenty to eat and certainly plenty of choices. Perhaps they need to be a little bit more imaginative with the desserts. We used the bar area and the terrace, which were well appointed. It's a hotel, so you pay a bit more for your drinks - but you're on holiday, aren't you?!
We found it was also a great base for getting into Dubrovnik old town, with the bus stopping up almost outside. When we arranged excursions (Mostar and Montenegro), we were picked up from/near the hotel.
We spoke to a couple who were staying at the nearby 5 star hotel and they felt they were paying too much for what they were getting and that they were just a number there. Croatia and especially Dubrovnik has been through a traumatic war. It is amazing what they have achieved and rebuilt in only a few years. We both felt that we were important to the staff at Hotel Splendid; we would go back again and we would certainly recommend it.
