What an awesome hotel! Had a wonderful time here this past summer in Dubrovnik. The hotel has great history and the location is perfect! It a few hundred meters from "Old Town" and most of the tourist attractions in Dubrovnik. The pool/beach area is one of the best in my opinion. Had a wonderful day lounging around and enjoyed the...

Perfect rooms, breakfast, location and staffs. Very good access to old town. It takes about 5 minutes walk. But it was quiet at night. We could enjoy beach life. The hotel has a private beach and a pool. Also Banje beach which is the famous beach in Croatia is located next to the hotel. It Totally the hotel is the... More

Excellent location, 5 minutes to the old city. Great views. On the Adriatic Sea. Great service. Restaurant's are excellent and the staff is very helpful and professional. Very confusing to find your way to the reception as the signs are mislabeled, so listen carefully to the reception staff when they give you directions.

I have a very mixed review for this hotel. My bottom line is that I would not mind staying there for another visit but I would certainly look carefully at some of the other options to see if I could do better. So, I will now try to express the pros and cons but beginning with the cons. Cons: The... More

We stayed two nights while we visited Dubrovnik. It's the perfect location for visits to the old town-a 10 minute walk to the less crowded entrance. The hotel is truly a 5 star. The included breakfast buffet was the best I have ever experienced. We had a sea view room which I would strongly recommend.

Yes, the place is closing soon (October, 2016) for renovations. They are very much needed as the hotel is looking worn around the edges. The location is fabulous (just east of the old town centre) and an easy 10 minute walk. The hotel is located on the water and has a "beach deck" and a roped-off swimming section within the... More

Location, location, location. A walk from the old town, a breathtaking view, and the quietness away from the city hustle and bustle. The hotel also has great facilities, making use of the pool / sun chairs and changing rooms after checking-out while waiting for our overnight ferry to Bari. Nice big rooms with luxurious amenities, attentive staff, and concierge help... More

This hotel is in a great location close to the Old Town and the sun bathing and swimming facilities are really excellent. While the bedrooms are small and somewhat dated, they are not the most disappointing aspect of this hotel. The standard of service throughput the hotel (with a few exceptions) is very poor. Firstly, the reception staff are not... 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
