We really liked Dubrovnik and everyone we met outside the hotel were friendly and helpful and we liked the city and had a great holiday. However the hotel itself was very disappointing. For a 5 star hotel the rooms, facilities and staff did not live up to expectations. 1) when we arrived the 1 person on reception acknowledged us and... More

This hotel is well located for the old town just a 10 minute stroll away. Sea facing rooms have a great view out to the right of the old town. Our room had a great view but was a little tired and quite small. The hotel air conditioning was quite poor and the room quite hot. Breakfast had a lot... More

The location of this hotel is unbeatable,in proximity to the old city. We had a balcony room overlooking the ocean and old city ( recommended) which made up for the otherwise poor amenities in the room. Staff were all courteous and helpful, but the accommodation is not worthy of the 5 star classification. Housekeeping is really lacking for a hotel... More

Quick 2 day, 1 night stay. Kindly upgraded us to sea & town view. Excellent service - everyone smiled and said hi. Dinner in hotel restaurant was very nice with many options including vegetarian. Very large indoor pool for swimming laps. Easy 10min walk to old town. Recommended.

To start, I am reviewing this hotel on the basis it is supposed to be a five star establishment; it is expensive and so expectations are high. First the room.

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
