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.
