Travel Blogs from Dubrovnik
Today we drove to Dubrovnik after more touring in Sarajevo. Museums did not open until 10 a.m. so we had an hour of free time to go shopping etc.
After the walking tour we travelled onto Mostar, a very beautiful and scenic town. Walked around and took lots of photos. There is a 16th century bridge across the river (see photo). Bought …
Dubrovnik is one of Croatia's vacation hits and definitely it is beautiful. The magnificient defence walls and the world-famous old town are truly memorable. Getting there, however, is still a little bit of a hassle as driving almost 200 km on the curvy coastal road nr 8 was not the greatest pleasure of this summer. The highway is still under …
... and BH immigration were separated by at least half a kilometre or more and this is for a 20 km transit. More Balkan-ness.
We got to Dubrovnik by early afternoon and checked in to the Berkeley Hotel in the port area. It is new and run by a Croatian woman who spent 15 years in Sydney running the Berkeley Hotel in Chippendale so the sign had the southern cross on it. A friendly touch for antipodeans. Because it was the ...
... sea side town. We walked the coastline, discovered the ruins of an ancient Roman villa, played in the rock pools and found a little jetty that was extra wobbly. Lyla and I ran down the jetty and we bounced up and down.
Looking forward to going on the ferry.

... which were pretty cool. We split up into a couple of boats and Hannah and I plus another couple from our boat got put with four guys who were clearly suffering from our cave party the night before (one was seen throwing up in the bushes nearby). They were three kiwis and an aussie and two of them were playing cricket in the Netherlands... anyway, it became apparent it was probably just four of us paddling, not eight, quite fast. That said, it ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Argosy Hotel Dubrovnik
We stayed at the Hotel Argosy for 1 week in Jun 2006. First impressions are not great when you arrive outside the bland concrete exterior but pleased to say that our opinions changed very quickly. The hotel offers basic accomadation that you would expect from a package 3 star hotel. We opted for a room (261) with balcony and view and given the slight extra in cost it was certainly worth the money. The views were amazing. Rooms and bathrooms were both large and very clean. A/C was a must in the summer. Staff couldn't be more friendly. Breakfast as discribed by previous reviews, was more than ample and a great start to the day. The average age of guests was 65+ and mostly from Germany and France (We are Brits in our 30's). This wasn't a problem and only provided a very relaxing and quiet hotel. Pool area great and very clean. The hotels accomadation is the major plus- in a lovely woodland area out of town near a local beach (Shingle at best) but within a few mins walk to a bus stop. Buses (try and get a 6A if you can) run every 15 mins and take 15 mins to get to the Old town. Would recommend sunset drinks at the neighbour hotel (Hotel President- 4 star). Over all would certainly recommend the hotel for a basic, value for money stay and would definatley return. The photos hopefully given an indication of how lovely the place is !!!
Stayed at the Argosy in April '06, first impressions were 1960's housing estate (internal balconies!!) but soon warmed to the place. Staff were always very attentive, good English and very hospitable. We'd upgraded to a room with balcony/sea view (not much more expensive than standard), and must say it didn't disappoint. Very modern, spacious (high, sloping ceilings) and comfortable with air con ( especially useful when the weather isn't so good and you need to use the "heat" setting!!). Breakfast in the huge dining room was good with a choice of Continental or cooked (although streaky instead of back bacon, frankfurters and not pork or beef sausages!), and you could go sit on the outside balcony and take in the lovely view.
Value for money
We considered this excellent value: a comfortable double room with 6' bed, seaview, sparkling bathroom, new TV, aircon and frig for £28 each. The buffet style supper was copious for £15, but we ate in much more comfort in the 4-star President next door (same Austrian management) for less, including wine. The Argosy was totally revamped in 2002, and is in a lovely quiet location near the sea. The bus to the old town leaves every 10 minutes, taking about 15 minutes.
Just returned from Dubrovnik - one of the most stunning and beautiful places we have ever visited (and we have been to some lovely places in the world).
FAIR TO MIDDLIN'
Good location, Clean, unfoitunately air conditioning did not work. food fair,
The hotel is very clean and I would agree it is uninspiring to look at (1970's style). I would recommend it for those who are looking for a peaceful location and not after 24hr entertainment.
Not so good
me and my wife spent 1 week at this hotel thank god i didnt book 2 weeks. hotel pool was that cold no-one ever went in it.bar shut at twelve we stopped down talkin to some friends we ad made the staff turned the lights off and told us to go to bed as this is the rules of the hotel.ther is only 1 rest and 3 bars on complex beside other hotels food is good but was same every night needless to say i will not go to this hotel again.average age of tourist in the week i was there was 70-85 this caused the hotel to have no atmosphere.(thank god liverpool won)
Stayed here in June 2004 - great hotel for the price! Very clean. Food is average but I suppose you expect that with buffet style. When we first arrived in the evening we had been allocated the wrong room (definitely not the one we had paid for) which was not very nice at all. After spending a night in that room we were moved to our correct rroom and managed to negotiate a reduced rate for late check-out as compensation. Staff were very nice and friendly at all times.
Good value hotel
Stayed here in June 04, outside its uninspiring, but it's rooms are pleasant and have air-con. Provides a great base to explore this wonderful country. Bus into old town very near,cheap and regular. Pool is very nice, but attendent is a bit rude. Reccomend you take a massage, so relaxing ! Food is average for the price, but loads of good restaurants in old town, and nearby.
Soulless but has good facilities
We stayed here as part of the accommodation provided in the course of an organized package tour of Croatia. The hotel is large and seems to be geared to providing accommodation for tour groups such as the one we were part of. The hotel as such is rather bland and characterless. It is located on the Babin Kuk peninsula which is almost a 10 minute drive from the historic center of Dubrovnik. However, from the large dining room there are extensive views of the harbour. The room we had was most pleasant with good amenities. The service was variable in standard. In general staff needed to place a greater emphasis on being courteous rather than on being brusque and regulatory in their dealings with guests.
