The upscale Hotel Excelsior, one of our preferred properties in Dubrovnik, is conveniently located within walking distance to the ancient Old Town, the iconic views of which can be seen from the hotel. Recently renovated, the hotel offers a modern and luxurious casual chic style. Rooms are very comfortable and cozy, in wooden themes with light shades, utterly relaxing, some with expansive views of the old city and Adriatic sea. Banje Beach is a stone’s throw away, where you can rent sunbeds at the beach club and spend an easy day lying in the sun and enjoying lovely food and drinks. There is also access to the hotels sunbathing platform over the sea and from where you can dive, which is quite usual in Croatia. There are fashionable common areas, such as bars and restaurants with picturesque stonewall ambiences, and a terrace that is just perfect for feeling sun-kissed whilst savoring sunset cocktails. We found the staff to be one of the most helpful in the city.
