“location and staff couldnt be better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Just back from a 7 day holiday at the Imperial. you couldnt get a better location just by the Pile Gate, minutes walk from great restaurants. I stayed in an Executive room whichgives you access to the executive lounge on the top floor- stunning views and free drinks and nibbles depending on the time of day. On that note - hats off to Paula and (sorry i forgot your name) the other hostess who were a wealth of local knowledge , friendly and generally added the extra to the holiday. Thank you both. The staff in general were great and the hotel was spotless. Only 2 points- the buffet evening meals were not good value so eat out, and the hotel doesnt have an outdoor pool, which i really missed, but given its location 5 mins walk from the city beach wasnt too nuch of a problem

Room Tip: go executive- its well worth the extra, try and get 3-4 floor

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

The positives: Location can't be beat, only 5mins to Pile Gate. Hotel kept in excellent condition. Buffet breakfast had great selection and represented value for money (we found that indulging ourselves for breakfast really set us up for a full day of sight seeing and only needed an ice cream for lunch!). Staff friendly, especially the ones working in the restaurant. Indoor pool never busy and a bonus with the sweltering heat. Stayed in the annex next to the main building which was adequate, however not as grand as the main building. Rooms were large and cleaned twice daily. Restaurant on the expensive side, however food was good.
The negatives: No porter/door staff to help with bags on arrival and had to carry own 20kg suitcases up the front steps to go into hotel to checkin. Expected better service from a 5* hotel regardless of whether the guest is capable of carrying their own luggage. In room WIFI expensive in relation to the awful reception, line constantly being dropped and had to contact the call centre everyday to be manually connected instead.
Apart from the location and the restaurant service staff being 5*, the overall experience from the hotel only compares to other 4* accommodations.
On a different note.....Dubrovnik is a fairly expensive place however, worth going since it is an extremely beautiful area with clear green sea and plenty of sunshine. Oh, also visit the island of Lokrum and swim in the Dead Sea lake, be careful of sea urchins (stepped on one!).

Perfect for the old city and cablecar. Comfortable room and breakfast. Staff were very attentive but perhaps too many of them. We found the fish buffet disappointing given the cost. Nice indoor pool for a relax at the end of the day.

Room Tip: Get the Airport shuttle to the hotel. Rooms at the front may suffer from traffic noise.

The room was large and clean. For those of you with light bothering you while sleeping (like I have) - they have lights that don't turn off at the thermostat, on the TV (two spots), on the light switches and of course the bright alarm clock - extremely annoying. One good thing was that the drapes fully closed and were room darkening.

They had a happy hour from 6 to 7 that left a lot to be desired (only 30% off already very high prices - $15 to $20 for a glass of wine).

The location however was fabulous - a block away from the Old Town (which was fantastic). All the damage from the Serbian bombings 20 years ago have been thoroughly erased.

A very good Hilton near Pile Gate. Modern, clean, very friendly staff. Executive lounge has a balcony and offers afternoon tea and evening nibbles. Good breakfast. Knowledgeable concierge. Highly recommended.

This hotel has a great central location next to one of the gates of the historical center of Dobrovnik. It has a great indoors pool but no beach or outdoors pool. We had a very nice room in the dependance. Breakfast buffet is very nice and generous. It is served on the beautiful terrace.

Great location. Room was spacious and clean. Must pay for internet if using in room. Internet spotty at times much better connection at Business Center. Friendly front desk who were eager to help with any request. Breakfast opens at 7 am. Good variety
