Set in the heart of Dubrovnik's Old Town, St Joseph's is an exquisite little retreat in a sympathetically restored 16th-century townhouse made of Dalmatian stone. There's a welcome sense of being pampered in this sumptuously decorated hotel, along with a lovely feeling of intimacy. No doubt it's because the main house has only six suites, with three smaller rooms in a newly renovated cottage just a few feet away. It's little wonder that St Joseph's is a popular choice for couples looking for a romantic city break. The six suites come with kitchenettes, and the three rooms in the cottage share a kitchen, giving you the chance to make the most of Croatia's delicious produce in Dubrovnik's food markets.

Being able to nip in and out of the hotel throughout the day was handy, as many luxury hotels are outside the Old Town.

Walk around the UNESCO-protected walls of Old Town and visit the towers and fortresses. Banje beach is a five-minute walk away.
By plane: direct flights from London to Dubrovnik take 2 hours 30 minutes. The hotel is a 30-minute drive from the airport.

The Standard and Attic rooms are located within St Joseph's Cottage, next to the hotel. The King Suite is calming and elegant, with exposed stone walls, comfortable sofa and armchair, all in soothing neutral shades. We loved catching glimpses of Dubrovnik life from the window overlooking the little marble lane, but feeling wonderfully cocooned.

Food & Drink

St Joseph's signature green smoothie is a refreshing glass of deliciousness to start the day. The owner's sister makes fabulous burek - a filo pastry pie found all over the Balkans and, in this case, made with spinach and cheese.

Breakfast: a full breakfast is served either in-room (St Joseph's) or an open-plan kitchen (St Joseph's Cottage).
