The Pucic Palace is a boutique hotel right in the heart of Dubrovnik’s Old Town and it’s one of only two hotels within the walled city. Step outside and straight into the bustle of this medieval town full of mouthwatering restaurants, a rich local art and music culture and plenty of seaside charm. The hotel is one of the finest noble homes in the city and has been beautifully restored. With wooden-beamed ceilings, wrought iron balustrades and Italian mosaics mixed with the unique antique artwork on loan from local museums, you’ll truly feel like you’re living in a medieval palace. This is a classic Croatian retreat.
Right outside the door is Gundulić Square. With a local market in the mornings, and alfresco dining in the evenings, it’s the hub of activity in Dubrovnik at your doorstep. A wander up the main streets and into the narrow alleys will have you discovering a seemingly endless row of local restaurants that spill out onto the streets as soon as the sun goes down, barely leaving room for each other between the tables and chairs packed with locals and visitors alike. Search around the walls and you’ll find the hidden bar perched on the outer wall and hanging over the ever blue Adriatic.
The Pucic Palace is full of 300 year old dramatic design and architecture. Each of the hotel’s rooms are named for one of the local poets, musicians or artists giving a nod to the arts heritage here. Inside, find Grand rooms flooded with natural light to welcome you in. With porcelain lined copper baths, traditional Romanesque Italian mosaics and wooden-beamed ceilings, every detail has been perfect. A modern Renaissance palace.
Why we like it
You couldn’t ask for a more central location from which to explore this fantastic city. Or to see it all from your own vantage point, head to the Palace’s rooftop restaurant for a hidden dining experience above the bustle of the main streets. If you’ve ever wanted to live like a noble, this is the place to experience it.
