To recapture the opulence of Dubrovnik’s aristocratic past, stay at this 18th-century Baroque palazzo, overlooking the Old Town square where the morning open-air market is held. The 17 rooms and two suites here have parquet floors, elegant antique furnishing, and lavish mosaic-tile bathrooms with both bathtubs and rain showers. The on-site Defne restaurant serves eastern Mediterranean cuisine on an upper level stone terrace with potted jasmine and lemon trees. There’s also a ground floor café and a wine and tapas bar. The hotel has a yacht for private excursions (with skipper). Beyond the old-fashioned glory here, there are no extra facilities: no pool, spa, or beachfront.
