Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Bellevue Dubrovnik
I went to Dubrovnik with my dad and two sisters and when we arrived my first impressions of the hotel was very good. All of the staff spoke fluent english and were always happy to help. As we went to Croatia knowing no Croatian at all they were very happy to write down some words and phrases to help us. I felt a bit rude as we could not speak any Croatian and they all spoke good English. The rooms we stayed in were very pleasant and the beds had to be the best!! The pool was also very good and most nights we went for a swim and the view from the pool was also lovely. The view from our balcony was amazing and eventhough we went in February the heat at some points in the day still became unbearable. The Old Town is only a 10 min walk from the hotel and I was impressed with the cleaniness of the town. The shops are also really good, they equalled any other European fashion boutique. We ate out most nights in the Old Town and the my other two sisters are fussy eaters so we had to find somewere that did something more traditional English! We found a fantastic cafe at the end of the main street in the old town called Dubrava and this did chips, omelets, toasties which was perfect. Another place I highly recomend is a resturent called Dominos which did fantastic food that we all liked at affordable prices. This was also in the old town. We also went to the New port and this was also very beautiful and only a 10 min walk away. When we were walking around the streets at night we also felt completey safe and it looked like there was very little,if any crime there.
Overall we had a great time as a family and Dubrovnik has to be the most beautiful place i had visited throughout my travels. I would definatly recommend this to anyone looking for a family holiday to a relaxing weekend away.
Fantastic Views. Friendly staff.
The Bellevue is most certainly a 5* hotel. Some of the other reviews seem too critical. From being collected from the airport in a 7 series BMW to the comfortably apportioned rooms with fantastic views, to the restaurant and superb wellness centre I was impressed. This was the first time I had taken my three young children on holiday on my own and we were well looked after. The chef pampered to my daughter's taste when she liked nothing on the menu. The staff could not have been any more helpful. I was even more surprised to find that everyone speaks fluent English.
I can recommend Dubrovnik out of season (I got a slight tan in Feb) and especially the Bellevue which is 10-15 min walk from the old town and the newer port area. Clean, tidy, safe.
If flying in, use the limo service and learn a little extra about Croatia and the Dubrovnik region (thanks Nico).
Ne parle pas français
Langue parler l'allemand, trés difficile de ce faire comprendre même en anglais. Cuisine en demi pension (cuisine cantine hôpital) toujours même plats.
Great location and with a beach!
I can see some of the postings have said it was expensive for the standard but Dubrovnik hotels all seemed pretty expensive in general when you look!
We stayed for a week last August and the hotel is not overly swish, the rooms are fairly small and the food isn't out of this world BUT.... amazing views from all the rooms and also from the breakfast terrace, it has its own (admittedly not huge) beach which is hard to come by in Dubrovnik, and its only 15 mins walk from the City gate (much better than all the big chain hotels on Lapad penisula where I am guessing you'd have to get a bus).
Would definitely recommend it based on these things (if you can afford the Hilton go for it, that looked amazing but if you can't this would def get my vote)
Dubrovnik is absolutely gorgeous and there are lots of ferries you can easily catch from about 30 mins walk away to the islands, really worthwhile doing and cheap.
We hired a car for a day and drove up the coast to Kercula. NOT for the faint hearted - they drive like absolute lunatics up the highway, overtaking with you coming in the opposite direction! Whilst the views are out of this world we felt a few times that we might end up rolling down one of the cliffs (the road is right next to the edge) so its a bit of a white knuckle ride but if you can stomach it, well worth it
We thought the hotel to be way too expensive for its standard. Also, the hotel looked much better on the internet photos than in reality. In addition, the elevator that runs from the beach to the hotel is making this loud, disturbing sound all day (but luckiy it stood still between 7 pm - 8 am). The rooms were worn. The hotel isn't terrible - it would have been allrght to a cheaper price. (We payed about 105 euros per room per night.)
Nice hotel, unmissable views!
I stayed at the bellevue for three nights in early September and found it to be well above its 2 * rating.
The rooms were a little basic but definately above average for a 2 * They were clean and comfortable and very spacious by european standards. The balcony was absolutely fantastic and the views over the dalmatian coast and the Adriatic were stunning.
I stayed in a superior room which had air conditioning-an absolute must in the summer in Dubrovnik. This was about £105 per night for a twin room which is extremely good value as I found Dubrovnik hotel rates to be extremely expensive in high season with many hotels charging well over £200 per night
The breakfast provided was nice with quite a lot of choice of both continental and hot food. I did not try the hotel restaurant as there are some lovely inexpensive restaurants in the Old Town-Poklisar and Domino were particularly good-but the hotel do have several themed nights which seemed to be fairly popular.
The staff at the bellevue were all polite and helpful and the manager is very friendly. Everyone we came across at the hotel and in Dubrovnik itself speaks excellent English which is very useful as Croatian is an extremely difficult language!!!
The walk to the Old Town takes about 10 minutes and it is easily walkable although it is a little steep on the way back. I tended to walk to the Old Town and then get the bus back up the hill-it is 8 kuna (about 80p) as long as you buy your ticket from the kiosk before getting on the bus and takes about 2 minutes.
If you are a view person then this hotel is an absolute must and it is one of the most conveniently located hotels in Dubrovnik. Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel and would definately stay here again.
The Bellevue Hotel has a beautiful location about 15mins walk downhill to the old town approx 1Km. We paid for a superior room and had a stunning view over the sea with the moon setting across water it was perfect. The room also had the benefit of air conditioning which is needed to cool you down after a walk uphill from the old town.The hotel is due to be upgraded during this winter 05-06 and will benefit by an indoor swimming pool and more rooms with stunning views.We found the food to be a lot better than i was expecting and really could not fault it although the decor was beginning to look its age. If you dare to take the local bus back to the hotel be ready to fight your way on to it, you will need your elbows to battle to get on.Currency is the Kuna and you will get about 10 to 1 UK pound although some shops will also accept the Euro. Prices could vary quite a bit with the most expensive pint of beer being £3.40 at one of the bars on the Placa Stradun in Dubrovnik old town and the cheapest being £1.50 at the Moon bar next to the hotel. You must try the pizzas with the local ham they are addictive and will cost about £3.50 for a 12" pizza.
A visit to the Elaphite islands and the fish picnic was excellent and also a sail down the coast to Cavtat where we saw David Bowies boat Iman named after his wife.He is a regular visitor there and the we hear that
Cavtat will eventually be Croatias answer to St Tropez so give it a visit while it is still affordable.Dubrovnik surprised us and it is certainly a place i
would recommend anyone to visit.
Good Location with Decent Room
We stayed at Bellevue Hotel for 5 nights in late July and thought it was OK for a 3-star hotel. The room did not have air conditioning or fan so it got quite hot and stuffy during the day. The room was cleaned and had all the basic anemeties. There were some English channels on the TV. Breakfast was good but were the same everyday. The hotel is about a 15 minutes walk to the Old Town or you can catch a bus (for 8 Kuna) in front of the hotel. We paid €132/night and didn't think it was worth the money as we have stayed at better hotels for much less in other popular European cities.
Excellent Value and location
Agree completely with previous review. My husband I and finished our tour of Croatia in Dubrovnik. The Bellevue was perfect for our needs (some sightseeing and some relaxing). We feel this hotel is an excellent value, thus the rating. It isn't a 5-star hotel like it's sister (Excelsior) but rooms were clean, staff was fabulous both at reception and in restaurant, good bathroom with excellent shower and shower water pressure, nice view of Adriatic from balcony over beach/cliffs, could hear soothing water lapping on shore with balcony doors open. Good breakfast buffet with eggs and meats!! Perfect location from old town Pile Gate, not in more touristy/busy area of old town but close enough (relaxing 15-minute walk down street with views, internet cafe and lovely houses). No street noise, but sometimes could hear people in halls. Excellent (all night?) bakery across the street for pastry or light lunch to go. Hotel restaurant was very good with a nice selection of meats, fish, salads, homemade soup, wine etc. We actually had dinner twice and lunch once in our 4 night stay. Overall value = excellent (especially at off season rate).
Bellevue, what a star
Stayed 3 nights at this hotel. Rooms clean, with great shower, plenty of wardrobe space, telly with bbc world and cnn. Lovely balcony overlooking Adriatic, table and 2 chairs. No tea/coffee making facilities but room service from 7am-10pm. Breakfast on terrace with usual fare- meats, cheese, fruits, cereals, brad, croissants and hot eggs, sausage and bacon. reception service very good - bags carried to/from room and also came up with several ideas on places to eat in old town.
Hotel 10-15 min walk along mainly flat but busy road. Plenty of buses travel along same route. Hotel on busy road but as all rooms below road level and looking out to sea, we never heard it.
Can't wait to go back to Dubrovnik - the most beautiful place we've been to and they're happy to see you without being smarmy. Take good walking shoes 'cos you're going to need them to get the most out of this beautiful (and cheap!) city.
We found restaurants/cafes very reasonable. Expect to pay around £20.00 for metered taxi from airport (ours was a Mercedes!) and £5 - £10 for lunch or dinner with wine.

Travel Blogs from Dubrovnik
The last time I was here (1970), it was Yugoslavia rather than Croatia. While the Old Town hasn't changed much, it's a much more prosperous destination today. It's a UNESCO World Heritage Site, so everything is kept in good repair. There are few signs of the turmoil of the early 1990's when Dubrovnik was shelled by the Serbs, or the severe earthquake damage suffered by so ...
