The 5-star hotel started with the renovation in Autumn 2016 and during winter 2016-2017 has gone through renovation under the Croatian architect studio BF, together with Franić Šekoranja studio, who were commissioned for the project to revamp the famous hotel.
The investment, which involved thorough changes to all accommodation facilities (158 rooms and suites) and part of the hotel interior, created a sophisticated hotel of contemporary, unobtrusive design that highlights the historical elements and architecture of the early 20th century. With this amazing renovation, it surely need also an amazing opening ceremony of Hotel Excelsior, planned for 26th June 2017.
The 2016-2017 renovation is basically the implementation of Croatian design and product, a perfect combination of Croatian products and high quality services according to international standards and Excelsior being the Dubrovnik symbol, this is also a high standard that had to be measured up with the renovation. And they haven’t forgotten about the Abakus piano bar and terrace, the famous “heart of the hotel” which served as the meeting spot throughout all the years, now with new design, breathing modern sophisticated elegance. One of the novelties is also improvement of their gastronomic offer, welcoming restaurant Sensus located near Abakus piano bar and powered by Chef Petra Obada’s modern interpretation of Mediterranean classics.
