We stayed in October 2012 in a double room with a luxury sea view.
The room was great and it did have a wonderful view with terrific sunsets. Would have preferred 2 armchairs but coped ok!
The bathroom was good with a massive bath and power shower.
The website we booked on said there were tea and coffee making facilities in the room, there were none in ours but reception kindly provided a kettle though they said they did not offer this service anymore. (We took our own teabags!).
The hotel was very clean. The maids, front of house staff and porter were all very polite and efficient.
We stayed B & B after reading the restaurent reviews. The breakfast was typical, cooked and cold buffet etc. The only none 5* element was the restaurent staff. No service whatsoever, I asked for a jug to put milk in and was gived a teapot. Dishes not cleared away, had to ask for spoons and forks everyday! Think the problem is training. This didn't spoil our stay, became a bit of a joke!
Hotel location was great, bus stop just outside. We bought a 3 day Dubrovnic Card for £180 kn very good value. As others said buy your bus tickets from the hotel or ticket booths they're cheaper.
Lots of restaurents in Lapad, we liked Mama Mia's, good value and service.
In the City watch out for cover charges we were charged £40kn for the privilege of a table. Try the coffee shops and restaurants in the side streets, much cheaper.
Ifyou just want a sandwich to eat try "TutteBene" in the Old town.
