Featured Hotels


Hotel Bellevue Dubrovnik

Overlooking Miramare Bay, this peaceful hotel has been carved into a cliff, giving all of its 93 rooms stunning sea views. Warm wood and local stone are used in the contemporary rooms, adorned with works by Croatian artists. The soothing spa has an indoor pool, and the beachside restaurant is irresistible.

In one of the best locations in Dubrovnik right in the Old Town on the harbour, these four excellent-value apartments, overlook the medieval walls. All of the brightly decorated apartments have kitchens, and one has a small balcony.

The Pucić Palace

Hotel Excelsior

This 198-room hotel in São Paulo, with its mammoth convention centre, flatters beyond its 4-star billing.

The location is also close by downtown Praça da República with nearby cultural icons such as Teatro Municipal and Edificio Copan. Staff speak English and can help book tickets and tours.
