I was wary of staying here as I knew it was not in the centre of town and an uphill return walk, but the bus which stops virtually outside made a trip back and forth to the centre prettty easy and they are quite frequent. The hotel has an executive floor which is worth paying for as the rooms are bigger and have a small balcony but as this is still over a busy road you would not want to spend to much time there. Our room was clean and comfortable. My real gripe would be the bathroom where there was enough room to fit a good shower one end - instead was a toilet which was lost in the space and a tiny bath the other end with a shower fitted in it. It had a fixed glass door and the bath was high so for me getting in and out was difficult. as I had a knee injury. The non updated rooms on floors below just had showers - so why they think 'executives' need a bath is beyond me - clearly not well thought out.. Breakfast was adequate but not amazing.
In October it was more or less getting to the end of the season and the bar every night was pretty dead. My tips:
For some atmosphere head across the road to the Magellan restaurant where I had the best steak ever, or for an amazing view over the cliffs head down the road to the Bellevue Hotel and take a cocktail on the terrace.
Don't bother with the Montenegro/Budva trip up at the crack of dawn, and out for around 12 hours most of which on a long coach journey with far too many border control points/checks which eats up the day. No point in visiting a medieval town when the best one is on your doorstep. Instead do one of the many boat trips to the islands - a lovely relaxing time and so so pretty. The ferry to Cavtat is also worth a day trip too as is the cable car for a great view of the city and wonderful sunsets. Best time to be in Dubrovnik city is when the cruiseline parties have left the town after 2pm. We were there late October and were very lucky with the weather even so late in the year.
