“A small & perfectly formed hotel right in the centre of the old town.”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

A small & perfectly formed hotel right in the centre of the old town. Rooms are modern and stylish with comfortable bed and very nice shower. Despite being in the centre of town the thick walls and double glazing gave a comfortable and quiet night’s sleep. Weather permitting breakfast is cooked to order and served on the rooftop terrace with a fantastic view of the old town or in the bar when the weather is not so good. Staff very friendly with good English and happy to arrange trips or taxis… be sure to have a mojito in the bar to help you relax on your stay!

Lovely little hotel in the heart of the old walled city, tucked away off the main street. The hotel has eight beautiful, contemporary rooms and the staff were charming helpful and friendly. There is a lovely terrace on the roof with wonderful views across the city. Breakfast was served at the café just around the corner and this was adequate. There was one problem with a nasty smell coming from the shower cubicle (drains) - it wasn't nice, but as we were only staying 3 nights we could live with it. We did mention to the receptionist as we were leaving and were surprised when she said that no-one had mentioned it before as we didn't think we could have been the first guest to notice it. Looking at some of the other reviews - we see other guest had commented on it before! We would recommend this hotel especially as the staff were so lovely, but we think there are a few small issues that need to be addressed.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 4th floor(402) fantastic views, but as there is no lift it was quite a climb!

This is a lovely little hotel, one of only a couple that are actually in the Old Town itself. There are only eight rooms, so advance booking well ahead is essential.

My room was on the top floor, which meant climbing quite some stairs -being in a historic building, there is no elevator- but it was probably good for me. Generally, exploring Dubrovnik involves some exercise.

The room was fine, not large, but with all necessary comforts and well renovated. Breakfast was simple, but good enough. Reataurants are literally round the corner.

The hotel is a short walk from the western gate, on a side alley left from the main street. Taxis cannot come near the hotel, but even with luggage it is only a five-minute walk from the taxi stand near the gate.

It is simply very nice to be in the Old Town at night, after most of the crowds have disappeared. That, combined with the intimacy of the hotel, make it a thoroughly enjoyable place to stay.

My wife and I decided to splurge on the last hotel we stayed in on our recent trip through Eastern Europe, especially because the location of this particular hotel was so unique. Although there are many "rooms for lease" within the walls of the historic old town (stari grad) of Dubrovnik, there are apparently only two hotels located there. All the other many hotels in Dubrovnik are outside the walls of the old city. It was just too tempting to book at this highly rated hotel placed in the old city center. We were not disappointed in the least. The room was actually a bit larger than I had been led to expect, surprisingly for a hotel built into an historic building. The bathroom was probably the best we had on our entire trip: completely up-to-date and with fully practical, modern facilities. (Unfortunately, too much of a rarity on our trip.) The building itself is charming. Although there is no elevator, it is not hard to climb the stairs, and the helpful staff carried our bags for us. Two floors above us was a lovely roof deck offering a spectacular view over the old city. Breakfast was provided at a neighboring restaurant, just around the corner on the main promenade of old town Dubrovnik. It was one of the best breakfasts we had on our entire trip, particularly since it was a la carte and served to us, as opposed to the usual mediocre buffet that one receives. Finally, there was excellent WiFi fully available in the room. We are very glad our last two nights in Europe were spent in such a perfect hotel.

The Stari Grad (which means "old city") is just off the main street in the old town of Dubrovnik. Very nice furnishings, great location and excellent staff. There is no elevator, because of the World Heritage Site designation for Dubrovnik, but the exercise will do you some good and give you a small taste of the climbing necessary to traverse Dubrovnik's walls.

There are only two hotels inside the old city walls of Dubrovnik and the best thing about this hotel is the 5th floor terrace that looked out over the walls, and the rooftops and churches, and out over the ocean. It was definitely Boutique style and as long as you know there are no elevators to the 8 rooms, it is 5 star. I loved the rooms, the bathroom, the staff could not have been more helpful. Once dragging luggage up 4 floors! We would go back again!!

Room Tip: You could ask for a room on the lst floor if stairs are a problem but we had no problem on the third...

Good location in old town, just a bit away from the very busy main street. Modern, very clean rooms. Nice rooftop terrace overlooking the old town buildings, wall, etc, and with glimpses of the sea - great place to sit with a glass of wine and watch the sunset. Very friendly and helpful reception staff. Depending on the floor you are on you need to be comfortable climbing lots of stairs. The only negative is that while we were there our bathroom periodically had a very noticeable smell of sewage, perhaps reflecting issues with the old town infrastructure. If it weren't for this my rating would have been "excellent".
