Official star rating:
This restored 16th-century historic townhouse ideally located in the Old Town, is a fine heritage stay and perfect for exploring the city and its main sights.,
The main building has six plush suites with exposed stonework, white Baroque-inspired furnishing (including cleverly hidden kitchenettes) and white marble bathrooms.
The highlight is breakfast, delivered to your room at the time of your choice by a maid – feast on platters of sliced fresh fruit and divine homemade pastries. The annex (opened in 2021) has an additional three rooms and a shared kitchen.
The welcoming concierge will fulfill your whims and wishes, including recommendations for dining, sightseeing and excursions.
The hotel is located in a narrow side street off the Stradun, the main thoroughfare in Dubrovnik’s pedestrian-only old town. Around the hotel is a warren of narrow stone alleys, lined by buildings mainly dating from the 17th century, when the town was rebuilt in Baroque style after the 1667 earthquake (although some older buildings do remain).
Most now host cafes, restaurants and shops on ground level, and small hotels or apartments to rent upstairs. The streets can get packed with tourists in peak season, but there’s no traffic noise as it’s a pedestrian area.
