I stayed here with my husband for five nights. The hotel was built back in the Socialist days. It is hardly organic architecture and the building is showing its age a bit. Nevertheless, it is a good place to stay, despite a few shortcomings.
The Tirena is located an easy walk from a picturesque, pebbly beach. It is a 10 minute bus ride on the number 6 bus into the old town of Dubrovnik. The bus gets hot and crowded in summer months, but at least the journey is short!
The rooms and public areas of the hotel are kept very clean by hardworking maids. We had a room with a balcony. While the view, of an overgrown garden, was not inspiring, the balcony featured a pull out clothesline, which came in handy.
Everything in the room was neat and tidy. The beds were comfortable. There was plenty of storage space in the wardrobes. The bathroom had a good shower over the bath.
The restaurant downstairs was noisy, with an institutional feel, but the food was good, fresh, wholesome and well cooked. The evening meal was good value for money. Breakfast was excellent.
Now for the complaints!
The internet connection in our rooms was unreliable and the signal was weak.
We were dismayed to see miserable looking stray cats hanging around the outside of the restaurant, often being shooed away by staff. We felt sorry for the cats. We hope the hotel management will show some responsibility and resolve this problem humanely.
