Hotel Aquarius

Three Star Hotels
Hotel Aquarius is situated in the very heart of the Lapad area, around 4 kilometres from the Old City and one of the most attractive suburbs of Dubrovnik. The hotel is surrounded by a gorgeous Mediterranean garden, in fact Hotel Aquarius is one of the most attractive small hotels in Dubrovnik and a great choice for visitors who are looking for a romantic getaway.

The Bay of Lapad beach is only 250 meters from the hotel and numerous restaurants and cafés are in the vicinity which although lively through the afternoon hours tend to be quieter in the evening. Hotel Aquarius has 4 apartments and 27 rooms in total, of which 20 are located in the hotel and 7 rooms in the hotel villa. Every room and apartment has air-conditioning, is equipped with elegant furniture, satellite TV and mini bar as well as a hydro-massage shower in every bathroom. Apart from the hotels main restaurant, where guests can enjoy a wide choice of local specialities and international cuisines,

Hotel Aquarius also has a beautiful bar and terrace. Here guests to the hotel can relax under the shade of a palm tree whilst enjoying a cool drink and even maybe a glass of a fine Croatian wine. With its elegant interior, friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere Hotel Aquarius is the perfect choice for guests looking for a small yet charming hotel in Dubrovnik. The Hotel Aquarius is open from the spring until the autumn.

Good Value for Money

There is an advertising slogan in the UK which promotes paints and varnishes by saying that they do exactly what it says on the tin.

This philosophy would perfectly sum up this small and reasonably priced (for Dubrovnik!) hotel in the Lapad area between the Post Office and the small beach.

It is 3 Star so do not expect luxury rooms with sea views, swimming pools, fitness centres, haute cuisine or any of the other benefits that you get, and pay for, at the 5 Star establishments.

What you do get is an efficient, quiet and comfortable place to base yourself for your holiday.

The rooms are adequate, many have balconies and a few at the front of the hotel overlook a pleasant garden with seating where you can enjoy a coffee or a beer after the exertions of the day. My room at the side of the building was fiercely air conditioned with a mini-bar (that was never restocked!) and a small en-suite containing a hydromassage shower.

The buffet breakfast is in the usual continental style although with orange/grapefruit squash rather than proper juice. Although the hotel does serve dinner, there are many restaurants and cafes nearby if, like me, you prefer to eat out but dont want to go into the Old City every night.

A five minute walk up the nearby pedestrianised street towards Lapad Post Office will bring you to the bus stop to catch the Number 6 to the Pile Gate. There is a small kiosk here where you can buy advance tickets for 8Kn per journey of up to 1 hour, although this only seemed to be staffed during weekdays.

At times, this bus can get very crowded and you might have to stand for the 10-15 minute journey. Busses run every 15 minutes until after midnight. Most of the Coach excursions will also pick you up at this bus stop. There is also a taxi rank next to the bus stop.

Lapad Beach is a few minutes walk in the opposite direction and there are good walks around the bay and the peninsular.

In conclusion, a hotel with a few irritating features but generally it is good value for money and well placed for exploring the local area.

Mixed feelings

Our reservation at Hotel Aquarius was made fairly late on, and was based largely on it's competitive nightly rate when comparing with other Dubrovnik hotels. That the other were so expensive may have had a lot to do with just how busy they were, as the old city seemed to tbe teeming with tourists (top tip: if at all possible avoid Dubrovnik during high season month of August - too many people, plus very hot). >>> more
Well above 3 star (even UK standard) Definite recommendation

No doubt you may be finding a difficult in finding reviews of Hotel Aquarius As did we before booking. I honestly dont know why, as during our stay there were an abundant supply of both British and Americans booked in. >>> more
