“Friendly family run hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

Just back from 4 night stay with a friend at the Berkeley and thoroughly enjoyed it. Room was very comfortable with tea & coffee facilities and small fridge. No view as we were at the side but french windows opened out on to terrace where we could sit out.
Breakfast was adequate and excellent coffee!
The staff are lovely; very helpful and friendly especially Marija. Location is fine just a 10 min bus ride from old town and with fine views out to the harbour. We will definitely be going back here as we loved Dubrovnik!

Built on a restricted site and unlikely to win any awards for architectural merit, Berkeley Hotel is a good example of the saying that you should not judge a book by its cover. Because, once inside, you will find everything is just as it should be. The reception staff are friendly and efficient, and this also applies to the breakfast room staff and the room maids.
We had booked a superior room with sea view, and found ourselves on the 4th (top) floor with a pleasant view over the hotel's very nice swimming pool as well as over the sea/harbour and beyond, from our good sized balcony.
The room itself was large and well furnished, and included a small kitchen with a reasonable supply of crockery, cutlery etc. and a decent sized fridge. The bathroom did not have a bath but the shower was spacious. The wash-hand basin was an unusual design (translucent) with plenty space for toiletries etc. It had a plug arrangement which we found tricky and we twice needed staff assistance to get the water out!
Breakfast was a pleasant experience, particularly because we hadn't expected anything cooked. All the choices included eggs, although I am sure negotiations would be possible if eggs weren't your thing.
The hotel is well placed for the harbour, buses into the Old Town, and the main bus station (with the excellent shuttle from/to the airport).
Our only "complaint" was that our lovely sea view was regularly impeded by the ugly bulk of monstrous cruise ships which arrive daily.

Room Tip: The higher, the better.

Very pleasant hotel, nothing sophisticated but it has all the necessities. Breakfast was good, although I was puzzled why the choice of omelette is limited only to two side ingredients. Service was attentive and nice. Room was clean. Airport pickup timely. This hotel is well recommended.

Chose the Berkeley Hotel for a 3 night stay whilst touring southern Croatia. It's conveniently located above the harbour and just far enough away from the old town and its crowds. The swimming pool was out of use during our stay because of stormy weather. Usual breakfast fare, reasonable prices, and nice, friendly staff who were always ready to help. Buses into town available from across the road but a taxi ride to and from the old town only costs about £7 each way. The underground car park was useful but space is tight. We enjoyed our stay.

In looking for hotels in Dubrovnik there seem to be 3 main areas:
1.In or near the Old Town-mainly dear.
2.The Lapad peninsula,a bulbous peninsula stretching out from the Old Town.
3.The Gruz area near the harbour,where the Berkeley hotel is situated..

if you want beaches the more expensive hotels in Lapad should offer these.If you want rapid access to the Old Town the Gruz area scores highly because the main bus station is there.There is also interest in the harbour area.

I stayed at the Berkeley for 4 nights in mid June and thoroughly enjoyed it.I was lucky to be upgraded to a superior double room on the 4th floor with a balcony and views over the harbour.The room was spacious,the kingsize bed was comfortable and the airconditioning was quiet.Breakfasts were quite adequate.The hotel does not do meals,but there are so many restaurants in Dubrovnik that this did not matter to me.There is a pleasant outdoor pool if you want this.

The bus stop was 5 minutes walk away,with a frequent service into the Old Town.The staff were all very pleasnat and helpful and spoke excellent English. If you do not need a beach I thoroughly recommend the Berkeley.

Room Tip: A higher floor with a view of the harbour.

Absolutely loved the Hotel. The rooms are spacious, clean and the hotel is very well located. The staff were incredibly friendly, and were more than happy to help. Price was also very reasonable. I would happily return!

Currently staying at this hotel, sat in reception writing this review! Unfortunately has been stormy weather, but made most of sunny spells by the pool and out sightseeing. Hotel clean, staff friendly, breakfast satisfactory. Dubrovnik Old Town is beautiful. Need to be fit though as lots of steps to climb. Walk the walls, but early or late in the day when it's not too hot. Visit the island of Lokrum, especially if you are a Game of Thrones fan, as much of it is filmed here and around the Old Town. We are here for 11 days as we wanted to combine relaxing and sightseeing. 4 to 5 days would be enough.
There are limited restaurants by the Hotel, but a 20 minute walk around the harbour to Lapad and there is a "strip" with lots of places to eat. Take the trail walk and visit the cave bar for a unique experience. Overall a great holiday, just a shame about the weather!
