We only had a short stay here, but what a fantastic stay it was. The motel is perfectly positioned for access into the old city area and has everything needed to make the stay a great one. There is private access to a section of the sea that is hard to describe but the 6 hours we spent there will... More

I can see why some reviewers have said this is not 5 star. The rooms and some areas are a wee bit tired (being refurbished winter 2016) BUT everything else about this hotel is classy and beautiful. The view alone is worth the check in. The staff, Prora restaurant, terrace bar and sunbathing area all deserve a mention too. The... More

This hotel is in the perfect location (only a few mins walk to the walled city) and has a lovely view and area to sunbathe (it has its own entrance to the sea you can swim in if you're a strong swimmer). The downsides are the service (except for the front doorman and one guy on reception, don't expect service... More

We are currently staying at the hotel for 12 nights. We entered the lobby at around 230 and it was overflowing with luggage and people complaining about various things from taxis to waits to get into rooms. We continue to hear people complaining during the day about rooms and service. The room is like a cave- overlooking the main road... More

We just loved our stay here. The room while not huge was very comfortable. Super size bed, well stocked mini bar, plenty of storage. A lovely balcony with amazing sea views. A variety of eateries inside and out. We loved the pool, spa and outdoor sun lounges where you could just jump into the Adriatic sea. We never tired of... More

This hotel met all expectations. We were picked up at the airport, swiftly transferred and welcomed at the hotel. The room was very comfortable with stunning views over to Lokrum island. Breakfast catered for all tastes, and on the two evenings we eat in the hotel the food was great. The spa was lovely although a little chilly around the... More

From the very start my experience with Hotel Excelsior was great! I needed to revise my reservation and make airport transfer arrangements prior to our arrival and found the staff very friendly and helpful with all of our needs. When we arrived we had a corner room that had views of downtown Dubrovnik and the island Lokrum. The "beach" at... More

The view of the old city from our balcony was better than the photo on the front cover of the guide book. A very comfortable hotel with excellent service. A short walk down the hill to the old city for terrific seafood each night. Breakfast was very good with the same amazing views as from the balcony.

Fabulous location, ideal for accessing the old town. We had a balcony room which was well worth the extra money. Great breakfast with lots of choice. Very obliging staff in all areas of the hotel. Had a lady in the entrance to the hotel who organised all kinds of trips. We did not use her services but heard many guests... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Since opening in 1913, the Excelsior has become an iconic landmark among the five-star hotels in Dubrovnik. This time-honoured building – a blend of old and new – is uniquely located on a cliffside, with magnificent views from every floor, over to the island of Lokrum in one direction and the Old Town in another. Recognised as one of the finest hotels in the Mediterranean by the UK’s Sunday Times newspaper, it is only when you visit that you can fully appreciate the spectacular setting: the tranquil gardens in which to stroll; four fine-dining restaurants, all offering panoramic views of the Adriatic Sea; a private beach, back-dropped by the UNESCO-protected Old Town. Among the luxury hotels in Dubrovnik, the Hotel Excelsior is the benchmark to which others aspire. ... more   less
