St. Joseph's Boutique Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 March 2015

Pros
-General Manager Zeljko Knezevic runs the hotel for his sister and brother-in-law and if I was them I would be thanking my lucky stars that my brother(-in-law) is doing such a great job. Zelijko will be key to the ongoing success of the hotel as he went above and beyond to make us feel welcome including organizing a pickup from the airport (reasonably priced), provided useful advice and excellent restaurant recommendations.
-The hotel itself is wonderful, perfectly located in the centre of old town Dubrovnik, which has an apt description of a living museum. The hotel building is the classic style of Dubrovnik (not sure of the age) and was central to all the sites.
-We booked a king size room, which was lovely. It is decorated in a French Provencal style, so lots of white/light furniture and linen coverings. The room was large with a king size bed (extremely comfortable i.e., right combination of firm with a softer top - a personal preference), sofa and one arm chair, small table and three chairs (on which breakfast is served….more on that later), kitchenette (microwave, stove top, pots/pans, cutlery, kitchen implements). One wall was the original stone and had two shutter windows that looked out on one of the streets with a church tower in the distance. I am from Australia, which is sorely lacking in old architecture, so the amazing, thick brick walls were a delight (I am easily pleased).
-Bathroom was great with a large soaker tub, separate shower, dual sinks. Classically decorated in pale tones.
-Breakfast was included and was served at time of your choosing. I would describe it as afternoon tea for breakfast (my Mum and sister would have loved it too it as they are also afternoon tea aficionados). It was baked goods based so if you are a worshipper of low carb eating plans or have wheat/gluten intolerance you will have to let the hotel know. Included where croissants, bread of various kinds, baked savory and sweet goods and fruit. In addition we also enjoyed great coffee and some sort of smoothie that was the healthy bit (well it was green and tasted healthy so it must of been….right? right?).
-Pricing: I thought it was very reasonable considering the quality of the hotel and service, although we were there in the off season so it may change come high season.
-Wifi: Those of you that have ready any of my hotel reviews know I have a problem with paying for wifi (yes I mean you, you overpriced western hotel chains). I am happy to report that St Josephs had free and fast internet.

Cons
-It is pretty tough to come up with any, however if stairs are a problem for you may want to stay elsewhere as there is no elevator.
-My only other suggestion would be to add a kettle and some tea/coffee making supplies.

We are a family with young kids and had an absolutely fantastic experience staying at St. Joseph's, both due to the beautiful hotel itself, and its fabulous hostess Gordana. While this was our first stay in Dubrovnik, from what we read and experienced, we are quite sure this is one of the nicest (if not the nicest) property in the Old Town (aka King's Landing for all you Game of Thrones fans). The property is, I believe, around 500 years old, and it retains all of the charms of that era while also offering all of the newest comforts and amenities. Our room was beautiful and a perfect size for a family with young kids (bedroom with living room). The location can't be beat--right in old town within a short walk to all sights, but by far what made this place stand out from the hundreds of nice properties we have stayed in around the world was our hostess/owner Gordana. She immediately took to our children, and vice versa, and spoiled them rotten (in a good way)! She also recommended the best restaurants, gelato places, and sights for our family, and made us a fantastic green shake as part of our daily breakfast (recipe provided on request!). We have nothing but positive feedback and memories of our stay in October, and will return for sure. Well done!

This small hotel was a little above the price point we generally look for when traveling, but it was so worth it! The location is just great, down a little side-street and central to Dubrovnik's attractions. There are just a few properties located within the City Walls, and this seems to be the newest. It was convenient to be able to stop back to our room during the day. The owners, a brother and sister team, are welcoming and seem eager to help out with anything to make the stay more enjoyable or easier. Although the property is not big enough to justify a large staff, they maintain a good presence at the property and are very available for any needs during the stay. The room was spacious and elegantly decorated, and even had a small kitchenette with some dishes / silverware and wine glasses. On the historical registry, the property preserved some older features, while integrating contemporary touches. Breakfast--- brought to our room each morning at the time of our choice---included a freshly prepared smoothie together with local pastries, and helped add to the value of the stay. Staying at St. Joseph's was a memorable part of our trip, and we wish we'd been able to stay longer. One note of advice for potential guests with mobility problems: the property does not have an elevator, so you will be taking some steps. We can use the exercise and didn't mind. It's a short walk out of the walls to get to car-accessible areas, but one of the owners met us upon arrival and helped us out when leaving, which was a great help with the luggage and just goes to show the above-and-beyond level of service.

Really nice boutique hotel, very well decorated, very well located, with very nice owners. They did everything to make our stay unforgettable, for me, my sister and my mother who is almost 80.
The apartment was the right size for 3 people.

My husband and I were having a hard time finding a luxury boutique hotel in Dubrovnik, until he stumbled upon reviews for St. Joseph's. This hotel is INCREDIBLE -- absolutely beautiful and staffed with the best team.

The property itself is right in the middle of the Old Town -- steps away from the cafes and shops, but on a side street so we didn't hear anything from our room. Our room was gorgeous and huge, and the bathroom was fantastic. Each morning (at a time of our choosing) we received breakfast - a tray of pastries and fruit, coffee or tea, and fresh green smoothies.

Before we even arrived, Zeljko emailed us an advance welcome -- we asked him for a restaurant recommendation for the night we'd get in, and his Bosnian rec (Taj Mahal) was one we visited a few times over the 5 days we stayed. He was full of smart and great recommendations and advice during the trip -- and no matter what we asked, always greeted us with a smile.

I truly can't say enough good things about St. Joseph's -- after we left for Hvar and Split, we kept saying that we could have easily just spent our entire Croatian vacation in Dubrovnik as the hotel and staff were impeccable.
