Iconic 5-star Dubrovnik Hotel Excelsior has opened its doors to guests after undergoing major renovations.

More than half a million kuna has been invested per room into the landmark hotel which has been closed since October 2016.

Housed in a former 1913 royal villa and built to take full advantage of a west-facing view of the glorious Old Town of Dubrovnik, Hotel Excelsior Dubrovnik opened again after its fist major renovations since 2008.

Croatian architect studio BF, together with Franić Šekoranja studio, were commissioned for the project to revamp the famous hotel.

Just a five-minute walk from the City Walls, Hotel Excelsior Dubrovnik has attracted a number of famous guests over the years, including Queen Elizabeth II and Elizabeth Taylor.
