OVERVIEW

You can't get more central than this intimate Renaissance hotel, set in the middle of Šibenik's pedestrianised Old Town. Exposed beams and brick walls add warmth to chic and airy rooms with a touch of Rococo here and there. Relax on the shaded café terrace with a coffee and gelato.

OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Set on one of the chief arteries that runs through the medieval centre, the hotel is close to the main shops, restaurants and sights, and the Riva waterfront is only a three-minute walk through the Old Town's narrow lanes. It's also a five-minute walk to the nearest car park. Šibenik's magnificent Sveti Jakob cathedral is just 200 yards away. Both the bus station and ferry port to nearby islands are a ten-minute walk.

By plane: direct flights from London to Dubrovnik take 2 hours 30 mins. The hotel is a 3 hour 15 minute-drive from the airport. Speak to the hotel about reserving a free public parking space. Book flights to Dubrovnik.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

Many of the original details from the 15th century have been retained and restored, with lots of exposed brick, wrought-iron and stone-arched doorways. There's a pleasant stateliness to the interior that's not stuffy, and the creamy white walls add a delicious coolness - very welcome on a hot Croatian summer's day.

THE FACILITIES

We received friendly and warm service from the staff, who were completely professional yet very cheerful and helpful. They can also advise on where to park beyond the pedestrianised Old Town.

BED AND BATH

In keeping with the Renaissance period of the hotel, there are judicious touches of Rococo-style furnishings, gilt frames and frescos, along with marble bathrooms. Rooms are filled with light, and nicely muted tones suit the exposed brick walls and ceiling beams. For pure romance, book the room with two wrought-iron Juliet balconies.

FOOD AND DRINK

There's no full-service restaurant, but the café terrace is a flower-filled place under giant umbrellas. It's popular among locals too, who come for coffee, homemade cakes and glasses of wine or cocktails. The generous breakfast buffet includes omelettes to order, Croatian cured meats, cheeses, salads and fruit, plus freshly baked bread and pastries.
