Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Excelsior

Put Frane Supila 12, Dubrovnik, Dubrovacko-Neretvanska, 20000, Croatia Fodor's Choice

On the coastal road east of the center, this prestigious hotel was the first five-star property in Dubrovnik, dating back to 1913—everyone from Queen Elizabeth II to Francis Ford Coppola has come to stay. Today, the Excelsior into not only one of the most historic properties in the city, but also one of its most modern, with rooms elegantly furnished in granite gray, pops of yellow and light wood trim, abstract photos of Dubrovnik adorning the walls, and sleek black balconies overlooking the sea. There is a wonderful indoor pool, a private beach, three restaurants, and a piano bar with a comfy lounge and unparalleled views of the Old Town.
