Neo-classical hotel in Lapad

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 30, 2010

Hotel Lapad is located in an exclusive residential area of Dubrovnik facing the coastline just 3 km from the Old City. It has the qualities of an old colonial villa.

Unique Quality: Hotel Lapad is the perfect place to stay to explore Dubrovnik. It is close enough to the Old City and easily reached by bus No. 6. On the other hand, it is located away from the hustle and bustel of the Old Town on the Lapad peninsula facing the Lapad inlet.

Under construction!!!

In the lush Lapad neighborhood and seaside.

From DBV airport: Walk out of the building, turn left, you would see the Atlas shuttle bus. 35 Croatia Kuna (HR) per person to Dubrovnik. Get off at Pile Gate, then 62 HR by taxi to the hotel. Or was told to take # 6 bus (without transfer).

To Old Town: Easy access with local bus (easy to get to the old town, e.g., Pile Gate) using #6 bus which has a stop 20 meters away from the hotel, with a big yellow BUS painted on the road side. The road in front of the hotel is a one way. You have two options taking bus #6 to old town: 1) walking 20 meters away from the old town direction, take #6 bus (which will loop through entire Lapad neighborhood to pick up other passengers first) to Pile Gate; or 2) walking about 10 minutes towards old town direction (walk on the sidewalk on the waterside so that the auto drivers can see you), turn left at the intersection, then right at the next signal. Do NOT go to the area where many wait for buses taking off, instead, keep walking towards the Pile Gate direction till you see a bus stop shelter. Several routes share this stop, but all does not go to Pile Gate, make sure you take the one does go.

The hotel staff told us that one can buy day pass of 25 kuna for unlimited bus rides, but they do not sell it. They do, however, sell 8 kuna ticket (for each ride). You can buy two for a day one goes to the old town and one back. Regardless how much we enjoy walking, we choose not to walk all the way to the Old Town (2 miles each one-way).

The hotel has lots of tourist groups, so having a meal before them probably would be a better choice, otherwise the dinning area could be crowded and with loud noise.

There are elevators.

The hotel has its own on-site parking for guests.

The reception staff were very friendly.

ROOM - Double with seaside view:
The room is mid-size, with a comfortable queen size bed (160 cm x 200 cm), a desk and sofa chair. From the balcony (NOT water front, but on the side), with a nice view of the bay.

We booked from Which was 140 Euros per night including buffet breakfast.

The room is very quiet. The small balcony has a chair to sit down enjoying the view (including the suspension bridge).

The in-room safe is large enough for our small laptop. The mini-refrigerator comes handy (we usually buy fresh fruit and skim milk, if possible, from local grocery store).

Bath room is modern and spotlessly clean. The shower/bath combination has three options one can choose from: Overhead very nice volume big shower head, hand held shower head or bath tub. The hot water comes quickly.

The design is nice, however some may not feel comfortable with its see-through glass door (I am particularly puzzled by the function of the lock on the glass door).

It has a glass bowl shape sink, around it, there is enough space to put your stuff. Extra space also is available on the ‘platform’ at the pebble stone wall behind the toilet. Besides, there was a small shelf under the sink.

The pebble stone wall behind the toilet provides an organic feel.

BREAKFAST/Buffet (included in the room rate):
There are several types of cold cuts and cheese, sauteed vegetables, fried eggs (sunshine), omelet with ham/asparagus etc (change daily), orange juice, ‘multi-vitamin’ juice (believe or not, I tried), and grapefruit juice; several types of breads, desserts, light yogurt, a few types of dry fruit, fresh pineapple, orange, and grapefruit; and canned fruit. Several types of fruit jam, and liver pate (my favorite). No skim milk. No oatmeal (either hot or as cold cereal). Several = 5-6.

The dinning area manager showed us the buffet, but we did not have a chance to take it. The main dishes are beef, pork, fish, and vegetables. It seems to have a reasonable selection of items. It is NOT cheap, 150 kuna per person.

Free wireless access is absolutely a big plus. The speed is fast.

Unique Quality: Under construction!!!

The entire hotel is non-smoking property. We only saw people smoking at the outdoor area at pool.

It is extremely clean and new, everything seems to be well taken care of.

Elegant modern design. Convenient location (despite NOT at the old town), reasonably priced.

Less than 10 minutes walk, there is a super market. The supermarket does not have as great selection of goods as the Real in Germany, but we were able to get some fresh strawberries, bananas and grapes.

Directions: BUS:
From Pile Gate of the old town: take #6 bus (stop would be 20 meters away from the hotel front entrance).

Look at the official website for details.

Harbourside Pool

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 30, 2004

The hotel was generally good, staff were helpful and the rooms comfortable. The decor was a bit aged but we did stay in the cheaper wing (Without aircon).

Unique Quality: The hotel is in a quite area, very peaceful, with a nice, large, modern pool at the front. There is a nice cheap bar with a terrace where you can enjoy the wonderful views over the harbour.
