The Berkeley Hotel is about a 30 minute walk from the 'old town' which is perhaps a little too far when the weather is baking hot. However, there is a frequent bus service from almost outside the hotel. We chose to take the car but, whilst convenient, it proved to be an expensive option as even though we arrived at 9am there was nowhere to park in the public car parks and the only option was a private car park which cost 35 kuna per hour. Whilst some distance from the old town the hotel is situated near the cruise ship port and there is a very pleasant walk alongside the harbour just a minute or so from the hotel where it was most pleasant to wander during the cooler evening.
The hotel is pleasant enough and a good choice for a stay in Dubrovnik. Our room was very spacious and clean with a comfy bed and excellent shower. We had a balcony with a sea view although the view is somewhat blocked by another hotel directly in front of the Berkeley and the balcony is surrounded by a wall rather than glass so from a sitting position you could see precisely nothing at all which was a shame and rather negated the pleasure of sitting out there.
We found the staff to be helpful and accommodating and the pool, whilst not massive, was large enough to enjoy, with pressured water at one end to give a 'hot-tub' experience. Car parking is in an underground car park adjacent to the hotel but there is a 35 kuna per day charge.
Breakfast was excellent and the best we experienced whilst touring Croatia. As well as the usual buffet selection, the difference with this hotel is that the staff ask you what hot food you want and then cook it to order so you finish up with hot, fresh food rather than an egg that's been sitting on a hot plate for two hours !
Overall we enjoyed our stay at the Berkeley and have no hesitation in recommending it.
