History of St. Joseph's Boutique Hotel
The 4 story house is at least four hundred and fifty years old and was in the hands of an old Dubrovnik family. You can see an angel bearing the family crest high up on the front of the house, and it was incorporated into the hotels own crest.
St Joseph's is now a family run business, the building was found in bad condition in 2012 but the potential was immediately seen. The renovation was carefully completed to preserve the historical feel while still being able to provide the comforts modern travelers require.
The Room at St. Joseph's Dubrovnik
My room at St. Joseph's was furnished with a soft queen bed and small sitting area. The walls had gorgeous grey stone peaking through the dry wall and the roof was slanted since I was on the top floor. I loved that I had a full kitchen in my room – even if I necessarily didn’t take full advantage of it. The shower and bath were small but spacious and the waterfall shower head was a nice touch.
Wi-Fi at St. Joseph's Dubrovnik
Wifi service at St Josephs was wonderful. I easily searched the web, watched Netflix and booked last minute tours. No complaints here.
Extra Touches at St. Joseph's Dubrovnik
I really enjoyed how personalized the service was at St. Joseph's. Because it is such a small hotel you don't have to worry about waiting in a line to talk to the concierge. The front desk staff was almost overly accommodating and helped me book everything from restaurant reservations to last minute tours.
Breakfast and Dining at St. Joseph's Dubrovnik
There is no in house restaurant at St. Joseph's but breakfast does come included with the price of the room. It is delivered fresh every morning with your choice of tea or coffee. I wouldn’t say it is the most filling breakfast – it consists of a couple of pastries, croissants and a small quiche but it did the job to get my day started off right.
Area around St. Joseph's Dubrovnik
St. Joseph's is located right in the center of the old walled city of Dubrovnik. Although the walled city is small in size, being in the center is honestly just that much more convenient. All of the major sights in any direction is a 5 minute walk at most. I was surprised to find that being so centrally located there were no noise problems at all. I was on the third floor, and even sleeping with the windows open my room was pretty quiet at night.
Final Thoughts for St. Joseph's Dubrovnik
This is a great hotel and apartment accommodation, especially for families due to the in-room kitchen. I highly recommend staying here and enjoying the old city from such a centralized point.
