“Fabulous in every way”
Reviewed 2 April 2012

As always when booking a hotel abroad for the first time we were unsure what to expect despite reading the reviews carefully. We were so pleased with this choice - one of the very best hotels we have stayed in. The room was large, spotlessly clean, very well equipped including a large fridge, a safe and tea/coffee facilities. The balcony was small but enough for 2 chairs and we especially liked the lockable outer doors to the balcony which had adjustable shutters so we could leave the inner door open and allow fresh air to circulate without compromising security (although we never felt in any way unsafe).
The spacious bathroom like the rest, appeared to be newly refurbished with a really good shower and good quality fittings throughout. Breakfast was good - plenty of choice - and came with it's own travel guide in the form of the fantastic waitress who advised us each day about good places to visit, which buses we needed, where to catch them and how long the journey would take. Invaluable given that we unfortunately only had 4 days there. Thanks to her we visited the cable car and Old City at the best times of day, had a fabulous day out by boat to Lopud Island, a bus trip to the lovely harbour town of Cavtat plus a food festival at Babin Kuk so packed a lot into our time there without ever feeling rushed and had plenty of time to explore and stroll around the immediate area as well.
We cannot praise the hotel staff highly enough. So friendly and helpful and genuinely interested in what we were doing and how we had enjoyed each day's activities. They went out of their way to advise us and ensure our stay was the best it could possibly be. Hotel Berkeley is not in Dubrovnik centre but for us this was a bonus and buses are so frequent including a stop right outside the hotel, that there was no problem accessing all the places we wanted to go. A short walk down the hill and we were at the old port which is incredibly beautiful both by day and when lit up at night. We spent our first day walking round the port to Lapad, stopping for a beer on the waterfront on the way. Wonderful!
We cannot fault this hotel and will definitely return plus recommend it to all our friends and family. A big thank you to the staff at the Berkeley for making our stay so amazing.

Room Tip: Our balcony looked out on to close by residential properties which did not bother us in the least bu...

We stayed in Dubrovnik at the Berkeley at the end of March for 3 nights. We were pleased with our room, very spacious and clean with all the usual amenities inl a fridge - nice fo a couple of pre-dinner beers.

The girls on reception were lovely, always insterested in what we'd been up to each day and happy to offer tips and advice, including the suggestion of dinner at a lovely restaurant just down the road called Gatto, mmmm, defo have the seafood platter for two if you go, its the best!

Close to the port, its probably a couple of km if you fancy the walk into the Old Town and the local buses are a breeze to catch and come past frequently. I enjoyed being out of the way a bit personally.

And breakfast ... delicious and it kept me going till dinner time. Thank you all for a lovely stay, I'm sure we'll be back one day!

Sorry this review has taken me a while to post........Having never visited Dubrovnik previously, researching where to stay was hard work, not knowing what were "good" or "bad" locations. Trip advisor pointed us to the Berkeley and I am so glad we made that our choice.

In an amazing twist of coincidence, while communicating with the girls at the Berkeley via email before our arrival it became apparent that their family had previously owned a terrific restaurant and local pub (also called the Berkeley) in Sydney, Australia - not to far from where we lived. We actually knew some of the same people - unbelievable.

Anyway, upon our arrival we were thrilled with the state of the hotel and the location. Far enough out of the Old Town to avoid people traffic but close enough to commute by local bus each day. The fact that the hotel was literally a couple of minutes from the Dubrovnik port was an added bonus, as we needed to join a ferry for our trip across to Bari when we left Dubrovnik - perfect!

Check in was a breeze and we were shown to a very comfortable room with outstanding views over the harbour. Beautiful. Bathroom was immaculate and the bes was large and comfortable. Everything you could hope for in a hotel room but more! We loved this hotel.

The only thing that didnt work was the internet connection in the room - never mind, despite technicians pulling their hair out trying to fix the problem that was apparently across the entire floor, we were able to access wi fi in the lobby. Good result.

Breakfasts were amazing ! Starting off with freshly brewed coffee and juices, there is a great buffet selection of cereals, breads, cold meat, cheeses etc. Then you get to order a fully cooked breakfast including bacon, eggs, toast etc etc. Fantastic!

The bus stop right at the front door made a simple and seamless trip to Old Town and other parts of Dubrovnik a breeze.

Despite three glorious nights there we were genuinely sad to depart.

I would definitely recomment this hotel - one of the best we stayed in during 5 weeks in Europe.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the harbour - priceless view !

My wife and I and a couple of friends needed a comfortable hotel for a few days while exploring Dubrovnik. Having read Tripadvisor revies of a number of hotels at we're a reasonable price and well recommended we settled on the Hotel Berkeley. What a success. The hotel is situated a mile or so from the Old Town, but given the crowds which flood the Old Town itself each day, it's easy access to the Old Town made its location ideal. The hotel has car parking facilities although not operated by the Patel itself, under the hotel. Staff could not have been more helpful in providing recommendations of sites to see and restaurants to visit within the region. Add to this experience the good breakfast layouts and we cold do nothing but recommend The Berkeley.

Room Tip: Most rooms to the to the front of the hotel provide excellent views of the cruise shps as they enter...

We enjoyed four nights in early October. What made our stay most memorable were the owners of the hotel. Katarina and Iva were so pleasant and courtious... and extremely helpful with their recommendations, directions and in making dining and taxi reservations for us. We looked forward to seeing them each morning and upon our return to the Hotel each evening. Our room was modern, spacious, clean and quiet. Everything worked, the air conditioning was most welcome as Dubrovnik was unseasonably warn. Katarina and Iva's aunt, Mirjana (I believe), oversaw the breakfest each morning, and provided excellent service, a warm smile and was additionally helpful to us in planning our days. The quality of the food was very good, with excellent variety. The Hotel is a short bus ride to the main gate of the Old Town. When we booked our stay, we thought it may be too far from the Old Town, however, after seeing and experiencing the crowds around Old Town throughout each day, we were happy that we were removed from the 'chaos' and in a quieter location. We never waited long for a bus to take us to the old town or back 'home' to the Hotel. You will enjoy your stay at the Berkeley. Our stay was made most memorable by the welcoming owners and staff. Our only recommendation...better instructuions on how to use the television. A tiny point to make...but we Americans were technology challenged with this one!

Room Tip: Rooms which are not located at the front of the hotel will be quieter, and have a semi-private patio...
