Hotel Dubrovnik Palace
Ranked #7 of 68 Hotels in Dubrovnik
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 25, 2012

We have just returned from a stay at this hotel, situated a few miles away from the Old Town. The main question everyone is asking is 'is it worth the five star rating'. The answer is yes and no. Facility wise, yes. There are two great spa pools an indoor pool, outdoor pool, sauna, steam room, gym and several restaurants. However, the standard room we stayed in was akin to that of any standard three star hotel, save for a delightful view overlooking the sea.

We dined twice in the hotel buffet at night, as bad weather meant we could not venture out to the Old Town. There was a reasonable choice, but food verged on the tepid. The waiting staff also had a habit of taking your plate away, if you leaned back in your chair for a second, without asking if you had finished. This was either super efficiency or slightly officious like, I could not quite decide. There was also an air of oppression in the dining room, nobody seemed to be speaking and the only traces of sound were the occasional whisper and a clink of cutlery.

The staff were all polite enough, but did not really speak or seem overly animated. Guests followed suit and tended to tip toe around. Most guests were around sixty to seventy in age and wore beige. Most guests ate breakfast early and must have been in bed at nine, because there was never anyone around past that time.

The hotel was clean and comfortable, plenty of room to move about and the lifts helped us get from floor to floor speedily. The Sunset Lounge is all very sleek, if not a little sterile in feel. We enjoyed listening to the pianist play for half an hour, then he vanished into the toilets for half an hour. I think the fact he was playing to just three people might have upset him.

Prices are verging on the ridiculous. We looked at one restaurant menu where a fish dish, comprising several seafood items was one hundred pounds. Even in the gift shop at the hotel, a hand-drawn picture postcard was priced at nearly forty pounds!

I think we would probably go back to the hotel, but whether it warrants the price tag remains questionable.

This hotel is a great location, overlooking the sea and about 10 minutes by taxi to the old town. Buses also run regularly to the old town, but since there were 4 of us, we took a taxi each time, which cost us about 65 Kunas each way.

The hotel reception staff were very friendly and helpful.

The hotel itself is very nice and modern. The reception is on the top floor and the rooms are are positioned on the hill side, below reception and facing the sea. I would say that most of the rooms have good views, but some on the the lower floors are obscured by trees.

The outdoor pool area is at the bottom of the hotel, next to the sea. It was very nice and never seemed too crowded, although I would guess it would be a lot busier in peak season. The pool was quite warm and there was a hot tub / jacuzzi at one corner. There is also access to the sea, but the sea bed is very rocky so care is needed.

We didn't use the indoor pool / spa, so I can't comment on this.

The breakfast was very nice with a large range of options available.

Prices at the hotel were very expensive, but no more than we expected for a hotel of this rating.

There was a mini bar in the room, but not tea/coffee making facilities.

We walked down into Lapad one afternoon where there is a very pleasant, busy pedestrian street with lots of restaurants and a few bars. Prices are also quite a bit cheaper than the old town. However, when we visited in the evening, it seemed very quiet.

Recently stayed and The Palace Hotel for a last min holiday with my boyfriend for 5 nights. The hotel, staff and facilities where all excellent, the relaxed atmosphere and serene environment made for a very enjoyable stay. The staff where very attentative and couldnt do more to help you. The breakfast on offer was a great way to start the day, the Maslina Tavern was excellent for lunch, we didnt eat dinner in the hotel though. The room we had was on the 6th floor with a sea veiw, lovely room for what we needed. The bus service (no. 4) runs from right outside the hotel every 20mins until 1am (2am in Summer) into the old town and this was so useful for getting around to see the sight Dubrovnik has to offer. Would def revisit and recommend.

Booked this as part of a last minute deal with Britis airways. If you want to relax in surroundings that are truly beautiful this is a must. Away from the old town, you only need catch a bus to get to the tourist attractions. The spa is great and there is an outdoor pool right next to the sea. The staff are very polite and helpful. I would definitely come back here.

Booked at the last moment for 5 nights and we were completely satisfied with this hotel. The staff were all friendly and very helpful, and the facilities are excellent. It is quiet and the breakfast is excellent. However it was low season ( early Oct) and it is a large hotel so when full it might be a bit hectic.
Although we were totally satisfied I am not sure that it is really 5 star standard. The rooms were a decent size and well appointed but the pillows and bed linen were all polyester and a bit sweaty. When we asked for feather pillows they were provided immediately.
The great thing about the Palace it is that it is removed from the noise and hubbub of the Old City but only a short bus ride away. The bus actually terminates and starts outside the hotel.

It has everything on site that you would need for a relaxing break. Swimming in the sea,indoor or outdoor pool,good gym,sauna,and spa centre.
I would certainly go back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room where the view of the sea is not restricted by trees.

Spent a week in this hotel mid September and had a wonderful time. We had a room on the 6th floor with a magnificant sea view. The room wasn't huge but was comfortable while the bathroom was certainly small. The hotel facilities were super with indoor and outdoor pools, gym and spa and three restaurants. We sampled the evening buffet twice which was good value while not gourmet cuisine. Breakfast each morning was a delight with an extensive selection that no one could fault. The location of the hotel is a 15 min bus ride to the old city and the bus stop is at the front entrance which was handy. You could also walk to Lapad which had a small beach and a selection of restaurants. Service throughout our stay was superb and the staff were helpful on every occasion.

We stayed 3 days in a standard sea view room - hotel is a bit far from the old town but bus stop 4 in front of entrance is very convenient and drives you in the city within 15 mn.
we appreciated globally the hotel - comfortable, fantastic sea view etc.. nevertheless service does not deserve the 5 stars - 4 should be more appropriated. carry your luggages yourself, if you ask for a good nearby restaurant nobody can inform you, missing staff at the spa..maybe because the season as almost ended..
nevertheless we enjoyed the stay and would recommended this hotel for a short break in Croatia.
