History and Renovation
The Prijeko Palace has a ritch history, it was constructed in the 15th century by the noble family Isusovich-Braichi with help from architect Giorgio da Sebenico and has whitstanded fires, war, depredation and earthquakes. The one in 1667. which heavily damaged the city, killed about 3000 souls and marked the beginning of the end of the Republic resulted in two floors collapsing which were "just fixed" and until 2012 never really renovated as supposed to.
The Isusovich-Braichi palace is one of the best examples of residential architecture in Dubrovnik. The reconstruction took 18 months but the period of preparation and planning was four times longer. During the restauration the Palace is restored in its present size with the reconstruction of decorated openings that were lost during time but their remains and traces are still visible on the elevations, and confirmed by test-pits done in the interior of the Palace. On the west elevation doors with richly decorated balcony on the second floor are reconstructed as well as a triphora window and two monophoras on the third floor, and on the south elevation richly decorated quadriphora with large corner balcony on the third floor.
Prijeko Palace has nine individually designed en-suite rooms, each with a different signature. All spaces are decorated with original artworks (many of them are for sale also) and each room is dedicated to an artist. The rooms are a perfect mix of charm, authenticity and affordability.
The rooms are air-conditioned, 16 to 26,5 m2 big with a (mostly) semi-open bathroom equipped with a hairdryer, mirror, fluffy bathrobed, towels an more. A small kitchenette equipped with a Nespresso coffee machine with a selection of coffee and tea is also available for use.
It might seem a bit chaotic when you first enter: the rooms are full with beautiful artworks, restored furniture and other details but when you start separating each detail for itself, and get to know the background of it (the owners are Dutch so many Dutch details can be seen and many of those also have a story) it feels more and more like home. It's cozy, warm and the level of service is just astonishing! We were truly amazed by the hospitality we encountered...have to say, true smiles and welcomes are hard to find these days.Book now!
