Just outside Dubrovnik Old Town, a two-minute walk from Pile Gate. The airport shuttle bus stops directly in front of the hotel.
All rooms and suites have apricot walls, beige carpets and rusty-orange curtains, plus spacious marble bathrooms complete with fluffy bathrobes and slippers. Furnishing is smart and simple, if rather business-style. Only the suites and executive rooms have balconies or terraces. My favourite rooms are on the top floor, affording views of Dubrovnik’s city walls and terracotta rooftops, and the sea.
The Porat restaurant has floor-to-ceiling windows and a spacious front terrace with fine sea views where guests have breakfast on sunny mornings. There’s a large light and airy indoor pool, plus a garage with valet parking (a definite bonus in a city limited parking spaces).
Eating and drinking
Porat Restaurant serves a generous buffet breakfast including freshly squeezed orange juice, with eggs, pancakes and waffles cooked-to-order. At lunch and dinner, they do a la carte, with a refined selection of Dalmatian specialities, such as lobster with spaghetti, plus several international gourmet favourites. The Lobby Bar serves coffee, drinks and snacks all through the day.
The Beauty Line Spa offers massage, a sauna and steam room, an ultra-modern gym, plus an impressive indoor pool with a glass roof.
Welcoming and professional staff at the reception desk, friendly waiters and a very helpful and efficient concierge.
