“Family holiday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

Loved the hotel, rooms were clean and comfortable. Pool always had enough sun loungers. Breakfast buffet best I've ever seen, very difficult not to over indulge with so much choice. Enjoyed the facilities of other sister hotels on the peninsula. Easy 10 minute bus transfer to city. Helpful locals and easy to book boat trips etc. Most people speak excellent english.
Highlights of trip include walking the city walls, kayaking 1/2 day trip and sunset drinks at hotel president.

Stayed 7 nights here on a group tour. It's a 15 minute bus-ride from the city (no. 6 bus, every 10 minutes, tickets in hotel shop = 12 Kn or on board = 15 Kn). The staff are very welcoming, efficient and multilingual; all have excellent English (as it seems do most Dubrovnik citizens). Rooms are comfortable and spacious enough but avoid the front of the hotel as incoming and outgoing coaches can be noisy. Ask for the quietest room possible. We asked for a room change and were shown three rooms to choose from. Thanks to Toni at reception. Beaches are nothing special but we were there for the city really.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking pool. We moved to there and were very happy.

We stayed in this hotel after the Le Meridien, Lav so it was a bit of a come down. Reasonably good on basics, but the restaurant was very noise and the food lost its appeal after 4 days. One good aspect was the fact the chefs did cook meat and fish at the buffet. 15 minute bus ride to centre of Dubrovnik.

Dear guest,
Thank you for commenting regarding your stay at our hotel. I am happy to read that you have enjoyed our quality of the food and our chef preparation in the restaurant. I am sorry that Tirena was a come down after Le Meridien Lav, however since Tirena is a three star hotel and Le Meridien is a top class five star hotel it is expected for the hotels to be of a different quality. However we do our best to provide the best possible service to our guests which is always giving us positive remarks from our clients.
We hope to see you again in Dubrovnik and until then I send you best regards,

This turned out to be a very pleasant 4-day stay but only after having to change our bedroom. The first room we were given was down in the basement and the smell of damp hit your nose as you descended the stairs. We were not the only ones to refuse to sleep down there. Aside from that problem which we finally overcame we thought the public rooms were good, food excellent and the hotel itself was in a lovely position. We did (and so did others) have one very noisy night due to excessive drinking by the sound of it as the hotel is in a public park. Good bus service into town and walking access through the park to a small beach area. Lovely city, beautiful country.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor. Those with sea views are lovely. Its worth having to pay the ext...

Dear guest,
Thank you for commenting on your recent vacation in Tirena. I am happy to read that you liked the hotel as well as our food and services offer. On the other hand I am sorry that you had unpleasant experience with the first room allocated and let me apologize on behalf of the hotel as we recently had some problems with a couple of rooms in that area of the hotel due to outside unpredictable occurrences.
Hopefully you will be visiting Dubrovnik again, and until then I send you all the best from the entire Tirena staff.

Some people are never satisfied. What appealed to me may therefore be of no consequence to others. These notes refer to the Restaurant.

Breakfast:

I liked...

Porridge served with honey
Pancakes with honey
Teapots that do not spill when pouring
Milk jug that is effective.

Dinner:

I liked that fact that heated plates are available when selecting hot food.

A very nice hotel about 20 minutes bus ride from the old city, which has so much to offer.
This hotel scores because of
1. Exceptional cleanliness
2. Well equipped bedrooms with comfortable beds,free safe deposit, fully stocked cocktail bar, and very nice bathroom.
3. Great selection of food for both breakfast and evening meal with pleasant efficient manager and catering staff. Ivan, the breakfast chef, cooks great eggs/bacon/ pancakes etc to order.
4. Helpful, informative and courteous staff, but then that's par for the course in all parts of Croatia.

Points could be lost because of
1. An abundance of feral cats roaming the gardens, though never allowed inside.
2. Bedrooms could be cold if temperature outside drops. Air conditioning does not reverse for provision of heat.
3. Noise could be a problem if rowdy parties went on late into the night. This did happen once, during our stay, but to be fair to the hotel, the noise came from a building close by but not under the control of the hotel management.
