This pretty, city centre hotel is about as close to the action as you can hope to get in Dubrovnik.
Overview The famous medieval city walls are one block away, the beach is 10 minutes down the road and there’s a heap of great Croatian restaurants (and pretty wild-looking bars if that’s your thing) right on the doorstep.
As Dubrovnik can get unbelievably hectic during peak season – it’s a very popular port stop for Adriatic cruises, and up to 10,000 tourists can disembark at once, crowding the streets and sights – having a base that’s close and peaceful to retreat to can make or break your trip.
The Hilton Imperial Dubrovnik is relaxed and quiet enough to do just that – you can pop back there for an afternoon snooze, or have a giant piña colada at the lobby bar if you need a bit of respite from the chaos or sometimes fierce heat outside.
Wow factor Porat Restaurant, set in the hotel’s grounds, serves delicious Mediterranean food. The serene atmosphere and twinkling garden lights make it a memorable place
for a feed.
Rooms A bit on the bland side when it comes to furnishings, as is typical of a chain hotel.
Bill, PLease Standard doubles start from £125pn.
