HERITAGE HOTEL NOBILE - Old town Dubrovnik

Living in the Heritage hotel Nobile is like living in a luxurious villa built in the end of the 18 century, but renovated to the highest standards, showing you the life of a noble Dubrovnik family. This Heritage Villa, lies only 100m from the main entrance of the walls and offers therefore numerous advantages. Being just a few steps outside the walls offers you more privacy and quietness and in our case a nice garden with many lounge areas to get cozy, dine or suntan, surrounded by 2 m high stone walls for intimacy.

Story & Concept for Marco Polo

For all who are visiting us for the first time or those who are with us for the tent time, there is always one magic feeling we want our guests and friends to sense, and that is „Home away from home“.
From the first step into our building you will feel the „mixology“ of high hospitality standards with a laidback, cosy, family-run atmosphere. From a staff who has been with us since the beginning, guests who more or less are like family members and become like ambassadors of creating a homely like atmosphere, to the owner and his family themself who’s generosity of mingling and serving each and everyone’s requirements is what create the soul of our Boutique Hotel and Gradac.

FAQ

https://hotel-marcopolo.com/en/tips-tricks/#1581974270707-4e054499-a457Croatia has all kind of beaches – small pebbles, big pebble beaches, white sand beaches, brown sand beaches, concrete terraces, cliffs, resort beaches etc…. In the area of Makarska Riviera it’s mainly beaches with small pebbles, gravel and sand.

https://hotel-marcopolo.com/en/#1581974270707-4e054499-a457  In Gradac you can reach the hotel from 3 sides, anyhow in July and August from 19h-23h the traffic is closed on the main Riviera through Gradac. If you arrive for the first time follow the signs and temporarily park your car on the Riviera in front the beach and house, after the check in we park your car or show you our different park options. If you should arrive after 19h please call us 021695060. The hotel has 8 car parks directly by the hotel and another 8 on rented car parks 200-300m away.

Even though we love children and our staff is very good with small children the concept of our hotel is more for mature couples or so called lonely nesters. In that sense we haven’t 100% become an „Adults Only Hotel“ but we have implemented a special carriage capacity for small children. This means that our reservation Policy will not allow a bigger number of children under 16years at the same time. This will insure you a confortable, romantic and peaceful vacation.

Besides our adorable sea, Croatia and especially this part has a extremely beautiful and unique mountain landscape with incredible views. Here are some things good to know. First, in our hotel we have some good maps and even gps maps you can download. We also organize mountain hiking with our own staff or can drive you up and you walk back. If you want to be on your own let someone no your plans……….  https://hotel-marcopolo.com/en/#1581974582079-84d741fa-273b  …

All rooms and public spaces have Internet – even on the beach and roof top terraces. Since 2019 – Marco Polo has Fiber speed and Internet works fine. Also, take into consideration that our WIFI is free of charge and used by many guests and can in periods be slower than in your private homes.   https://hotel-marcopolo.com/en/#1581974637546-90da3f26-98be

Yes, Gradac has all the basic Public facilities like Exchange office, Post office, Pharmacy, Dentist, Ambulance, ATM Cash Machine, Supermarkets, Restaurants, Pizzerias, Café Bars, etc.

You need your passport when traveling to Dubrovnik, because you pass a short part of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Most EUcountries can pass this border with a valid national ID card.

You can use Croatian kunas in parts of Bosnia and Herzegovina ex Mostar, Medjugorje, Neum, Kravice waterfalls. It’s easy to mix them up, Bosnian is called Konvertible Mark – KM and Croatias currency is called kuna – KN – 1KM is approximately 4KN – pay attention to that when you watch the price tag. B. and H. is cheaper from 10-40%, but the living standard is also lower.

Cevapcici, Pljeskavica, Muckalica, Sljivovica and many other “specialties” that can be found in Croatian restaurants are NOT Croatian specialties and its always better to try them in their origin homeland like Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Yes, Croatian, Serbian, and Bosnjak Languages are very very similar. Please do not mix that up with their very different historical, cultural, religious, political, ethical background. All 3 countries have been independent more times in the last 1200 years. Even different Kingdoms have existed in old medieval times.

The best time for swim in high season is definitely in the late afternoon from 16h-19h or in the morning until 12h. From 12h-16h the UV insolation is too high and the beaches are too crowded. In that time its best to take a nap in the room, or hide in the shade with a cold drink.
