LOCATION: 10 minutes walking distance from Old Town
Housed in a former 1913 royal villa and built to take full advantage of a west-facing view of the glorious Old Town, Hotel Excelsior Dubrovnik enjoys the most enviable location of any hotel in the city – just a five-minute walk from the medieval fortress walls. It has been welcoming famous guests from the start, including Queen Elizabeth II and Elizabeth Taylor. It’s only when you go there that you fully appreciate the magnificence of the setting: the tranquil gardens in which to stroll, a private beach and three restaurants, all offering cinematic views of the Adriatic. For added luxury, there is also an indoor swimming pool, plus a glamorous spa and fitness center. Many of Hotel Excelsior Dubrovnik’s 158 quietly grand rooms have arguably the best sea and Old Town views in Dubrovnik. And all welcome you with a calming marriage of natural shades, dark wood furnishings, handpicked accessories and state-of-the-art technology for a reassuringly ‘home from home’ feel.
