"Great Hotel in a Great Location"
We had a one-night stay at Hilton Imperial Dubrovnik before a cruise from the same city. We had a short but a very pleasant visit. Even before our flight to Dubvornik, I received an personal e-mail from the manager welcoming us. I was already impressed with the property before we arrived there. It was obvious that everyone there are well trained. The hotel is located just a short walk from the main drawbridge entrance to the walled city. The view from our room as well as that from the executive lounge balcony was simply spectacular. The breakfast spread in the morning was one of the best I've seen in a hotel. We were upgraded to a corner suite with a plenty of room. The room was clean, pleasantly modern, and very functional. As far as I know, this is the only large hotel that is this close to old city. The location cannot be beat. We highly recommend this hotel.
"Cool retreat on a busy hot afternoon"
We arrived in Dubrovnik and were knocked out by the crowds in the old town so wandered across the road to the Hilton Imperial and sat in their lovely old colonial style bar, dreamt of the in crowd and drank cocktails. The bar was quiet but staff attentive and helpful and made mean Manhatton's, not the cheapest drinks I will buy but you know what the say you spend more time moaning over poor quality than crowing over great experiences! I must just mention the nibbles a dish of exceptionally good nuts nod regularly refreshed as were the drinks. If you fancy a more refined hour or so in Dubrovnik then try a few Manhatton's at The Hilton Imperial!
Located a very short distance from the walled city.Just a great all around hotel. Excellent executive lounge serving all spirits.Balcony in lounge overlooks the city. Be sure to get a room with a balcony to take advantge of the views. Great breakfast and wonderful staff.
"A Gracious Heritage Hotel"
The hotel sits, like a grand dame, atop a small rise overlooking the main Plaza and the walls of Dubrovnik old city. It is a distinctive and imposing structure, faintly reminiscent of Victorian hotels built for genteel Europeans, that justifies its World Heritage Site status.. It’s public rooms- the reception, the lounges, and the bar and restaurant are bright, lit up with natural Mediterranean light that filters through it’s large ground floor French windows. The furniture is padded and comfortable. The staff is professional, at home in English, and ready to help. We were given a room in what they call the Villa. The Villa is an extension of the hotel, in a different building, separated from the main hotel by a paved courtyard. The room was large. With big picture window having great views of the fort on the hill across. The city walls were also visible. There was the usual mini bar, a tea & coffee service, an ironing board & iron in the closet, a hair dryer in the bathroom, a flat screen TV, and all the other usual luxuries, including a tiny chocolate for your pillow at bedtime. Breakfast is served in the hotel’s large restaurant The Porat. Apart from the extensive spread at their hot and cold buffet, and the helpful staff, the best part is the large terrace where you can sit outdoors and eat a leasirly meal. The hotel has a gym, and a heated pool in the basement, but with all of the wonderful old city just outside it’s gates, if you wanted exercise, you’d be better off strolling through the Plaza and the Pile Gate into the old town beyond. The only ‘criticism’ would be that the carpeting in the public areas, specially the corridors needs to be changed. It looks old and faded. We would always stay at this hotel when in Dubrovnik.
It was very difficult to find by car due to the city's one way system and gridlocked traffic, but we eventually found it, and there is secure valet parking. It is only 2 minutes from the old city. It is a very large traditional hotel, oozing with grandeur. The décor is very tasteful, light and airy and all the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, notably Nikolina in the restaurant. We enjoyed a wonderful feast at their Dalmation buffet, which is seasonal. But I found the restaurant quite chilly with the air conditioning on too fiercely, so take a cardigan ladies ! We had a lovely room which was well equipped, although the bed was quite hard (our backs were aching in the morning). There was an excellent breakfast buffet but for some bizarre reason, decaf coffee (which is provided in the bedrooms) was clearly a monumental effort and took 10 to 15 minutes to arrive, by which time we had nearly finished our breakfast ! But overall, a good stay.
