Nice location, refurbished, has air-conditioning, a lift and friendly staff!

The trip to Dubrovnik was booked through a travel agent so I didnt as much chose this hotel as was given it. That said, I had no major complaints about the hotel, which is situated on the Lapad Peninsula, although there were a few areas in which improvements could be made.

Firstly, etalite kralja Zvonimira bb, the street on which this hotel is situated, is a pedestrianised street, so no taxis can come to the door of the hotel. However, there is a car-park about 100 yards or so away, to where taxis can bring one. My personal experience was that the taxi driver was unsure of exactly where on the street the hotel was located, so he just waved me in the general direction. I did not anticipate a problem with this, as such, except that, as I discovered, the front of the hotel is covered over with canopies and umbrellas, etc., and consequently the name of the hotel is hardly visible at all. I had to walk up and down the street a couple of time before I found the hotel and, even then, it was only through recognising the picture of the balcony that had appeared on the website that I eventually found the hotel. Even throughout the holiday, as I got to know the hotel and the surrounding area quite well, it was often the aforementioned image along with the noise of the squeaky swing, in the little playground opposite the hotel, that alerted me to the fact that I was back at base.

Once inside the hotel I was met by a very friendly staff member who was utterly charming and who quickly took my details and my passport. Having checked out beforehand I knew that this hotel did not have any rooms with a sea-view, so I had no expectations there, however, I was given a room with a view  a view of a building site, that is! Luckily my stay in the hotel centred around the weekend so I avoided any noise from the building site and even on the Monday and Tuesday of my holiday the noise was never very loud (for the little amount of time I was indoors in the hotel).

The hotel appeared to have been refurbished/rebuilt recently, so the bedrooms were very clean and crisp. The bedroom itself was a good size, with plenty of storage space, a pretty little balcony, a mini-bar and most importantly of all it had air-conditioning. There was a reasonable size bathroom, that had a power-shower (the entrance/exit to this was quite small though) but no bath. There were no complimentary shower gels/shampoos at all in the bathroom (except for a little bar of soap) and with not even a complimentary shower-cap one would need to have ones own toiletries.

Having showered and unpacked, I made my way downstairs to get something to eat in the restaurant that adjoined the hotel and then to take a stroll around the area to get my bearings. As I was exiting the hotel, I observed that the reception desk was unattended and anyone who so wished could have reached in and taken any of the passports that were in the pigeon-holes on the wall inside the desk. A little uneasy at the thought of this, I went inside the desk and pocketed my own passport. Nobody ever commented on this to me afterwards and neither was I asked if got my passport back.

I dined in the adjoining restaurant that night, under the stars, and because the food was so good I pitched my knife and fork there each of the other nights too. The menu was fairly extensive and the staff were pleasant and professional.

However, as I discovered the next morning, the same compliments could not be given to the breakfast that was served there. The cornflakes tasted like nothing that Kellogs had ever made and the orange juice tasted like it was made from concentrate to which enough water had not been added. The bread that was served was fairly tasteless. As far as I could establish, there was a better breakfast available to people who came and bought their breakfast at the restaurant as I saw menus being handed to a number of people who were not guests but who chanced upon the place as they were passing by. The breakfast had been included in the overall price I paid but had it not I would have gone somewhere else each morning to eat.

The only other little whinge I would have about the hotel is that I found the bedroom door very difficult to open. There was a trick to it  one had to turn the key, hold it in place and ever so slightly pull the door forward, to get the door unlocked. Perhaps that was just the case with the door of the room in which I stayed or perhaps it was the case throughout the hotel, I really cannot say, but I wish I had been warned about this at the front desk  it would have saved me considerable grief the first few times I tried to enter the room!

Although small in size, the hotel is in a very good location, about half-way along a street that at one end leads to the beach and which, at the other end, has a bus-stop and a taxi rank, as well as an ATM, a Tourist Office and a Post Office. As one goes towards the beach, there are several stalls selling beach gear as well as souvenirs and postcards. The only slight irritation along this street was the number of salespeople trying to sell trips to the Islands! Irrespective of the above points, I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel (though do get breakfast some place else)!

Good hotel

This hotel is located within the bay of Lapad which is a good location. It is in the middle of a pedestrianised street which is lined with lovely bars, cafes and restaurants. The hotel is easy to find by car, which was great for us as we had a hire car. The staff were helpful and polite. >>> more
Great location, clean hotel, reasonably priced too!!

A very good quality 3 star hotel in great location on lovely promenade near beach and plenty of restaurants nearby. >>> more
Solid spot

I thought the Hotel Perla was a good spot. It's an easy, 10 minute bus ride from the Old City and is located in a nice "suburb" of Dubrovnik. >>> more
