Hotel Splendid3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
It's slightly run down, left over from a previous era but ran by very nice people. It's got a little piece of beach and the restaurant has a beautiful view of the sea. The rooms are small and very basic and the bathrooms are even more so. But they are clean and tidy. The internet works fine and the breakfast is ok. Given that it was a relatively basic place, I thought it's on the expensive side but it was high season. Old town is a good 12-15 minutes by cab.
Pros The location of Hotel Splendid is beautiful. The beach is one of the nicest in Dubrovnik. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The bus to Dubrovnik town is very close and takes about 10minutes to get there. Cons There is no lift so we had to carry our bags up 2 flights of stairs Our room was very small and the bathroom was tiny and our shower atatchment broke. The aircon in our kids room leaked constantly despite us reporting this. All in all the location is great but the hotel has seen better days and needs a revamp.
made very welcome on arrival cases taken to our room from reception - reception staff very helpful at all times, particularly Mario and Toni. Welcomed by head waiter on first night with a pre dinner drink. Restaurant staff couldn't do enough for you. Luce and Anka gave us friendly personal service and were happy to help us with our Croatian, which we enjoyed. Food was good and varied with plenty of choice.
Lovely location, the views from the eating terrace - just beautiful to watch the sun go down over Kolocep island. Good bus service into the old town (approx., 15 minutes) bus stop, just up the steps from the hotel. Just 5 minutes walk in to Lapad pedestrianised area, where there are bars/restaurants. Nearby coastal walks. Couldn't fault the holiday - just wish we had booked for 2 weeks instead of one. Staff in hotel so friendly and very helpful. Rooms very clean. But sorry to have to say this (because we had such a lovely time staying there) but corridors and rooms very bland décor (need a bit of an interior design touch). Would definitely recommend to other people to stay there.
We went as a group with children for a week. The hotel is dated but the price makes it attractive. Location is spectacular with beautiful views and very quiet. Kids were missing the pool outside however the weather was great and they truly enjoyed it. Lovely local food. We went half board and there was plenty of choice and variety of everything. Rooms were spacious, dated but clean. Terrace views and space on the balcony was amazing. Meals were lovely and tested great. Its not a big commercial hotel so not sure why people are negative as you cant compare it to any other chain hotels as Splendid is special on its own. I would recommend and would love to come back.
Hotel is very Old and it smells! The restaurante is not that good and I don't advice staying there. It has an amazing beach that is worth the benefit of the dubt. The location isn't terible although it isnt within the old Dubrovnik walls.
I would say for what you pay the hotel is good. It is stuck in about 1969 with the decor and the style of the place but in a strange way I got used to it and it was a change from the the anonymous hotels that are built today. A great location on the sea with large gardens and plenty of terraces to sip bear on. Great views from the room and very friendly staff, who looked after us very well. the breakfast was very old fashioned and so the dinner but we ate out mostly. We did have trouble playing tennis on the hotel court, I think they rent it our to a local who seems to control the keys, but we finally got a court 15mins walk in the main Dubrovnik tennis club. we had a great stay here.
I booked the hotel because it advertised free WIFI. Wifi only works in a very few rooms and if you end up like me on the second floor it will not work at all. The have one booster near the reception desk and a second near the restaurant. When I talked to reception they said they were aware of the problem and that was that. The reason I wanted WIFI was because I have travelled a lot and I knew I would spend about 12 hours a day in Dubrovnik and only a few hours awake in the room and in dealing with previous Croatian hotels I knew the TV choices would be limited. breakdown of my stay The Bad ** Wifi does not work in all rooms ** No tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms ** Room was tired and beaten and in need of a renovation **Due to it being close to the end of the season the bar was out of many drinks The SO SO **Breakfast was so so and never changed **Coffee was canteen style and when I asked for an espresso or Americano that was a no go The Good **Room was large **Easy access to city centre. 30 minute walk or 10 minute bus ride
Positive things: excellent location, by the sea, bus stop at the entrance, helpful staff Close to old city and Lapad beautiful scenery Negative things: very weak wifi, average breakfast, poor cleanliness, spiders in the rooms, dirty water in showers, very old and dirty furniture (late 60s), bathtub curtain full of fungi, No elevator The hotel has potential but needs urgent renovation
I visited this hotel with my family in mid October we were taking showers in a very dirty and muddy water Brushing our teeth with expensive mineral water The buffet for breakfast was below average Tv in the room dating from the seventies No elevator Service was ok But the view was excellent
