The Pucić 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 traditional 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 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. 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. Search around the walls and you’ll find the hidden bar perched on the outer wall, hanging over the ever blue Adriatic.
The Pucić Palace is full of 300 year old dramatic design and architecture. Each of the hotel’s rooms are named after a local poet, musician or artist, giving a nod to the cultural heritage of Dubrovnik. 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 perfected. It is a modern Renaissance palace.
Why we like it
You couldn’t ask for a more central location from which to explore this fantastic city. To see it all from a unique perspective, 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.
