My girlfriend and I stayed here during our holiday to Dubrovnik in October. All in all, the hotel is extremely good indeed. The staff are very helpful, both on the front desk and at breakfast, and the hotel itself is very clean and modern.
The room itself was more than satisfactory. We booked a double room and that is what we got. It was not massive, but had more than enough room for the two of us and had the normal mod cons one expects in a modern hotel. We were in a room on the top floor of the hotel which did mean that we had to go outside and back into reception every morning for breakfast (the hotel is built into the side of a cliff and so the restaurant is on the lower floors closer to the sea), but it also meant that we were relatively isolated which was actually quite nice and a beautiful view first thing in the morning. The ensuite bathroom was clean and spacious. The only two downsides to the room were the lack of tea/coffee making facilities and the fact that our bed was actually two singles pushed together. Whilst this is not uncommon in hotels nowadays, the bed linen was also that of two singles cobbled together to make it as close to a double as possible. Effectively, it meant that my girlfriend and I were sleeping in separate beds each night.
The breakfast was very good. Whilst it is described as a continental breakfast, it is one of the better such breakfasts I have had. There was a wide range of food available, was very tasty and if you had a special request (poached eggs for example) it was no problem. The breakfast was a buffet so meant that we could go back for whatever we wanted. The staff were also very helpful.
The bar of the hotel is quite interesting being built into a cave that forms part of the hotel. Again, the staff are very friendly and helpful. In comparison to other bars we found the prices were not outrageous given that it was a hotel bar.
The hotel also had a 'beach' area which allowed us to swim in the sea. Although it is described as a beach, it is actually the outdoor area of the bar with a ladder and steps leading into the sea, but a very nice place to have a drink and a swim nonetheless. Just be careful of sea urchins clinging to the wall.
There is also a small swimming pool and a jacuzzi on the 5th floor with the usual sun loungers. We discovered that this was an excellent place to watch the sunset.
The hotel itself is about a 45 minute walk from the Old Town. Alternatively, you can walk up through the nearby street where the tours to the islands are sold and catch a number 6 bus to the Pile Gate which costs 12 kuna per person (or 15 kuna if the ticket is bought on the bus).
Getting to the hotel from the airport also needs some planning. It is possible to get the shuttle bus from the airport to the Pile Gate (35 kuna per person) where you can get the number 6 as described above, which are the most frequent, although requires a walk or the number 5, which takes you to the door (every 25mins or so). Alternatively, you can get a taxi from the Pile Gate to the hotel which costs 90 kuna which may be simpler if you don't know where you are going. Alternatively, you can get a taxi from the airport to the hotel direct which costs about 270 to 300 kuna.
All in all a very good hotel and we would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to stay in Dubrovnik.
