Very remiss of me not to have written this review sooner, as we stayed here for my birthday back at the beginning of September 2014. As our flight didn't arrive until early evening we booked a transfer through the hotel so as to be in Dubrovnik as quickly as possible as we didn't want to miss dinner.
First impressions of the Berkeley was of a modern, unremarkable-looking building, but over the following days we grew rather attached to it. Our welcome at check-in was genuinely friendly and our room was large with a view down towards the harbour.
In a rush to find somewhere for dinner on the first evening we somehow found our way in the darkness to the pedestrian street full of restaurants on the Lapad Peninsular - about 20 mins walk. The old city was easily walkable too - about 30 mins - though we usually caught the bus each way in the evenings simply because we'd already walked for miles during the day.
Breakfast was delicious with freshly-cooked eggs and a choice of sausages/mushrooms etc from the menu. The lady looking after the breakfast room was a mine of information and gave us advice on our day trip to Cavtat.
During our stay we experienced the heaviest amount of rainfall in Dubrovnik's history on 1st September. Luckily we'd just arrived back in our room after a long morning walk, and watched the violent storm for a couple of hours from our balcony.
We were sorry to leave The Berkeley, and the sweet girl on reception presented us with a couple of small bottles of liqueurs as they'd realised I'd had a birthday during our stay.
A lovely holiday, and I'd recommend The Berkeley to anyone looking for an interesting city break.
