The Pucic PalaceThis 18th-century hotel at the foot of the Stradun (the polished-limestone pedestrian thoroughfare in the heart of Dubrovnik’s Old Town) is set on a small square in close proximity to the city’s most famous sights and museums. Once upon a time it was mansion belonging to a noble family, and its aristocratic bones are still evident in the stately draperies, period furniture, and antique paintings. The guestrooms feature wood-beamed ceilings, parquet floors, and thick walls that keep the interiors cool, plus oversized bathrooms with stand-alone tubs. A block away, there’s an annex containing two apartments and two more hotel rooms.
Each morning, guests can enjoy breakfast outside on the square or at the terrace restaurant. Later in the day, they can stop by the on-site wine bar for Croatian vintages, both red and white. While there isn’t a spa on site, the hotel offers access to the private Banje Beach, just outside the city walls, as well as the Ploce Gate, where guests can rent sun loungers.
