“Second other's reviews - good place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Stayed 3 nights as part of Go Ahead Tours, so roooms pre-assigned. We had room 404 - top floor, right off stairway, right over bar/patio area. Excellent views of harbor - you could see the many cruise ships entering port each morning, leaving later in day. Only downside to this room was the noise in the evening from the bar/patio below, plus the nearby minimall area, with its restaurants - weekend 'parties' often went to 2 am.

Great breakfast buffet - plenty of hot/cold choices, including eggs made to order. WiFi in our room worked very well all the time, and it was free. Ten minute walk to pebbly beaches - Cava or Copa Cabanna. Suggest you bring flip flops or water shoes, as it's hard on your feet on beach and nearshore.

As others have noted, catching the #6 bus into the old city is very easy, convenient (right up the drive from hotel), and only costs 12 kuna each way if you buy your tickets from the hotel gift shop (15 on bus from driver).

Would stay again.

Room Tip: If noise at night bothers you, avoid Room 404, but it's got a great view otherwise

We stayed here recently and found the hotel to be very good. The hotel was very clean and presented very well.

The food was buffet style, breakfast was really good with a lot of choice, and dinner was also very good - but perhaps I would I like a bit more variety with the meats (maybe some more seasoning).

Rooms were adequate size for the price and were very clean with fresh linen every day. The bathrooms were spacious and very nice.

We were upgraded to a balcony view for free which was great.

On the whole all the staff were helpful - some more cheerful then others.

I would definitely stay here again as the price is reasonable and you are next door to the bigger 4 star parent hotel which is VERY nice and has an excellent fine dining gusto restaurant. You are also 10 minute walk from the beach.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel as part of a Leger coach trip, with the local bus at the top of the hotel drive getting into the amazing Dubrovnik makes this a very comfortable place to stay. We found our room which was on the ground floor clean and spacious, the white sheets on the big comfortable bed made for a very nice restful sleep. We found the smaller restaurant quieter but both eating areas did have a canteen feel but this didn't spoil our visit to this hotel. The pool area and view was great. Would use hotel again if we decide to return to Dubrovnik.

We stayed here for a week in July and loved it. The hotel is great value for money for what you get. The breakfast buffet has lots of choice including both hot and cold options.
The hotel is in a great location, as you can catch the no 6 bus to town from outside the entrance. You can easily walk to a couple of beaches, one of which offers a multitude of water sports. You are also walking distance away from the cave bar which is a unique place to grab a drink whilst watching the sunset.
We paid for just bed and breakfast, which is all you need, as there are so many restaurants to choose from in the town, many of which are quite cheap!
Lots of coach trips stay here, but don't let this put you off, as it is really good value for money!
If you're not a cat person this might not be the hotel for you as they are all over the place - this was an added bonus for us as we found some particularly cute kittens!

Room Tip: We had a room without a sea view and I think it was quieter than those with a view, as they are near...

Not very helpful people on reception.....in fact rather off hand but brilliant location and marvellous buffet. It is very easy to get into Dubrovnik on the frequent number 6 bus. The breakfast was very good with 2 attentive waitresses and the buffet dinners were excellent for choice, variety and flavour. Clean rooms with no Internet In them but free wifi in the public rooms . Good music in the evening too.
