Yes, Game of Thrones is back on HBO for the March 31 Season 3 premiere. We now turn to Dubrovnik, Croatia, location for Season 3’s King’s Landing scenes and--if staff rumors are to be believed--the real-life setting for some truly awesome cast parties.
While those parties are over for now (though we can’t speak for Season 4), Hotel Bellevue, where many of the cast are said to have bunked up during filming, is offering a Game of Thrones package sure to get your geek-roleplay mojo in maximum throttle.
We are suckers for a room with a killer view. We find that we are even more likely to forgive some minor hotel inconveniences if we can stare out the window at something pretty--yeah we are that shallow. Let's help out our fellow hotel mavens by uploading rooms with killer views to the HotelChatter/Flickr photo pool, or by sending the photo along to us. We will feature our favorites in this space from time to time. Remember to tell us the name of the hotel and the room number of the hot view.
The hotel promises on its web site "magnificent panoramic sea views" and this room delivers on that promise. Most of the hotel's 93 rooms have balconies and all have sea views. Plus if you book a suite, you get a jacuzzi in the bathroom! Rates start at 165 Euros for a classic double room. Suites start at 750 Euros.
The Radisson Blu is getting bigger: they've just opened the Radisson Blu Resort & Spa Dubrovnik on this amazing part of the Croatian coast.
If you've forgotten that Radisson Blu used to be Radisson SAS, just check out our poem which explains it all and reminds you that Radisson Blu is meant to stand for cool. This place seems to fit that bill with 201 rooms with balconies overlooking the Adriatic Sea, plus 207 apartments of various sizes including kitchenettes. Plus there's a huge spa which includes a juice bar overlooking the sea, too.
As well as some 13 bars and restaurants on site, the Radisson Blu Dubrovnik even has a gourmet fresh market where you can pick up some groceries supplied by local bakers and fishermen – if you're the kind who misses home cooking, you can even get tips from these locals on how to prepare some Croatian meals and cook up a storm in your kitchenette. If you're lazy like us, though, you'll stick to all those restaurants.
Opening rates are starting from €150 ($205) a night, which includes breakfast and free internet access. Dubrovnik is really an ideal summer destination but it stays warm longer than much of Europe so a late summer or fall vacation will still work out here.
