... we had was that he talked so softly at times we missed a great deal of information! We started our tour outside the city walls of Dubrovnik. The city walls were completed in the 15th century - they encircle old Dubrovnik with a circumference of more than a mile and a half. The walls vary in width from 3' to 19'. Some of the tours ...

I made a fantastic choice in this Hotel. I arrived via the airport shuttle and the bus stops right @ Pile Gate which is the entry point for Old Town. It's a short walk to the hotel - you can't miss it once you get off the bus. The hotel is in a great location with lots of markets right there. I was able to buy snacks and water. You can walk everywhere. You don't need a car for this part of town. The hotel staff was really friendly and very helpful. They helped me arrange a tour to Montenegro, which was not that easy considering it was low season....but they were persistent and I was able to book a tour!!! I was happy!
The room itself was amazing! The bed was soooo comfortable and the bathroom was well equipped with everything including a hair dryer that worked very well. There is free wifi in the lobby area and sometimes I was even able to access it in my room - I was on the 1st floor. The hotel was sparkling clean - which is something I really look for. This hotel has so much unique charm, I enjoyed my stay of 3 nights very much...I wish it had been longer. I highly recommend you won't be disappointed! Oh, and the breakfast was super....lots of choices - and very good!

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Imperial Dubrovnik
Me and my husband, we were staying at Hilton Imperial for 5 nights in July and that was the experience we just have to share with you.
This was really an outstanding hotel!
Hilton has lived up to its reputation with this location. Not only was this hotel in a great location, with great views, the staff was friendly and helpful. I would definately come back here again. They have a nice indoor bar area, outside dining and bar, great indoor pool and a very good fitness center. My only regret was that my stay was just too short.
From the moment we checked in the staff were all polite and very helpful. We arrived at 8am ( 9hours ahead of schedule!) and our room was sorted out straight away. The hotel is in a great location, very close to the old town. We stayed in an executive room and had a lovely balcony and fantastic view. We also had access to the executive lounge and found the complementary wine probably the nicest of our trip!
As previously mentioned the location of this property is fabulous but service levels can be poor.Breakfast could be either an enjoyable experience or completely frustrating as tables were not cleared,waiters would ignore you and it was a major hassle to get a cup of coffee.This needs to be urgently addressed as it does pall slightly trying to get someone`s attention and food has not been replenished on the buffet.Dubrovnik is a wonderful place and is definately worth a visit before the bucket and spade brigade arrive en masse,complete with England football strips....Use local buses to beaches (Copacabana)or get a boat to Mlini which is a gorgeous resort and great beach.Unimpressed with Lokrum island ,as no beach as such and didn`t relish trying to sunbathe on stone slabs in the midday sun...don`t bother!!Lots of great restaurants such as Sesame(just up the road from the Hilton),Spaghetteria Toni and Kamenica.Avoid July/August as found the heat overwhelming and did hinder our enjoyment.Cavtat also worth a trip.
The best thing about the hotel is its location which is only few steps away from the old town. The hotel is new (opened 1st May 2005). Design is very nice, rooms are good size. Good breakfast, but you must eat until 9.30 (although it is opened until 10.30, it is almost empty after 10 a.m.)
Arrived in high season to an oasis of calm off the busy street leading upto the old city walls. Check-in was extremely fast and efficient. They even remembered my request for a free upgrade, which they did without any fuss.
It was a late decision to go to dubrovnik and due to its peak season in July, we have not a lot of choices left on hotels. We booked into Hilton because of its close proximity to the old town.
After lots of searching for a nice hotel, close to the sea and the old town, for a much-needed three night break, a friend and I booked the Hilton Imperial. I am normally averse to large branded hotel chains, but was of the view that this was a grand old hotel that had recently reopened after major refurbishment and decided to give it a go. The rate quoted for an executive room was €330 per night, plus tax - which is not cheap, by any standard. I duly booked a twin-bedded, non-smoking room with a balcony and seaview and subsequently emailed on two occasions, and rang once, to ensure that the room would be configured with two beds, as we were two women friends (not lovers!) travelling together.
The new Hilton is in a great location if you want to be close to the old town. The hotel is very pretty and the rooms are done very nicely. However, the staff still needs lots of work and they do not understand the level of service required. We stayed for 4 nights - the first room they gave us , with a very empty hotel, was ground floor, handicapped room facing the overhead of a gravel roof. This was even after we told them it was a very special occasion for my husband and I who only see each other every 3 months. The next room faced the parking entrance which was not much better. They did not give us fresh towels each day and there was no room service menus in the room. When we would complain the only reaction was a smile. Sad part is that I am a platinum member with Hilton and received this service. In addition, they failed to tell us that breakfast was included so we missed out a bit. We moved to the Dubrovnik Palace and were treated like royalty and everyone was so kind. There is no outside pool at the Hilton so the Palace was a nice treat. The hilton is probably good for business but would recommend somewhere else if you wanted feel like you are on vacation and have something special.
had a most enjoyable stay at this hotel . Formal opening I understand is not until July 1st. and it is apparent staff and management are still finding their feet . It's location (adjacent to the old town) was very convenient to many shops/bars/ restaurants and museums and various attractions and walks. We stayed in an executive club room and the abundance of extremely tasteful light food and as much alcohol as you would wish(we are scottish as you will have seen ) made it seem a good deal to us . As stated previously the bedding in of the various services was subject to occasional hiccups , the friendly and pleasant staff more than made up for any faults , which hopefully will soon be rectified. In conclusion , this hotel although very close to what is a very busy tourist stop provided a peaceful and relaxing base .
