We stayed here with a large group of friends in the summer...which is as long as I have been battling with the hotel for a fictional "2nd reservation" that I was charged on a credit card provided by a 3rd party (booking.com) without my authorization! We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights and paid in full before our stay,...

Stayed 4nights in late summer Sep. What's really good: 1) Location: it's just 10min walk to the old city wall. Best place to be in Dubrovnik. Plenty of restaurant there. You can see the old city wall everyday during breakfast and dinner. The view is awesome! 2) Facility: You can swim in the sea where the hotel located, its like...

The Excelsior is a very comfortable and beautiful hotel about 10 minutes walk outside the old town walls. The hotel is part very old and part very recently refurbished. The rooms we stayed in were in the old part of the hotel, beautifully appointed with double sea view. Lounge bar areas give evidence of the rich and famous patrons from...

Very nice. Champagne at Breakfast! 😉 Sea View Dubrovnik old town View. Just Beautiful. So far the best I have been in while in Dubrovnik. The rooms are nice. Service good. Maybe a little puzzle it was at first to go around and find our dinner place. Dinner was excellent. We liked. Loved it 😁

The location of the hotel was great. It was a short walk to the Old Town. The staff was very friendly, and spoke English well. I didn't spend much time in the room, but felt that it was very nice, and I have no complaints about it. Hopefully, I will visit Dubrovnik again soon, and will be sure to stay...

We had booked a sea view room, and were surprised (happily) when we arrived and ended up having not only a sea view, but a balcony! We watched the sunset from our balcony almost every night of vacation - it was our favorite moment each evening. We would have a nice bottle of wine and sit on our lovely balcony....

This was a getaway for New Year's Eve and the weather was on our side. The ocean view from the room was breathtaking as was the view onto old town Dubrovnik.

Quite possibly the best hotel I have ever stayed in! Very accomadating, they helped me plan my proposal to my fiancé, upgraded the room and gave us a bottle of champagne. Outstanding service and they cater for gluten free in their restaurants.

We have stayed at Excelsior Hotel several times over the past 15 years. Perfect location, it is walking distance to The Old Town. The staff is very friendly, they treat us like family. The breakfast buffet is incredible, also love eating at the little restaurant down by the water. Very excited for the remodel, cannot wait for our next visit!

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
