If you’re a true romantic or culture vulture, I recommend you try to stay in Dubrovnik’s lovely car-free, fortified Old Town. It’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site, so buildings are strictly protected by conservation orders and tight planning control. Therefore, there’s a very limited accommodation choice - just a couple of lovely small hotels and several b&bs in carefully restored 18th-century stone buildings – so you’ll need to book early.

That said, Dubrovnik has over 40 hotels in total, most of which lie on Lapad peninsular – think pinewoods and rocky coves, just a 20-minute bus ride from the Old Town. The majority of these date back to the 1970s and 1980s, but have been renovated and upgraded to four or five star in the last decade. Expect excellent sports facilities, including swimming pools and seaside bathing areas, and comfortable rooms with sea views and balconies. If you’re planning a family holiday, and want to combine sightseeing with relaxing, Lapad fits the bill. There are regular public buses to and from the Old Town, and you’ll have the pleasure of returning to your hotel beach or pool after a busy day’s sightseeing.

Last but not least, you might consider staying on the tiny nearby Elafiti Islands. Connected to Dubrovnik by regular daily ferries, they give your the chance to explore Dubrovnik's Old Town while also experiencing the blissful uspoilt nature and easy-going lifestyle of the Dalmatian islands.

Things to consider before booking

  • Prices drop from May to June and September to October, when the city is less crowded, but the sea still warm enough to swim.
  • Dubrovnik makes a lovely winter break too, if you stay in the Old Town, and prices drop substantially
  • Prices rocket in July and August, when the city stages the fantastic Dubrovnik Summer Festival and becomes very, very busy.
  • Hotels and apartments in the Old Town do not have lifts (with the exception of the Pučić Palace).
  • Breakfast is almost always included in the room rate.
  • Tourist tax (7Kn, approx 1 Euro, per person per day) is generally (but not always) included in the room rate.
  • Stays of less than three days generally have a small surcharge.

I lived in Dalmatia for six years and visited Dubrovnik countless times, both for research into guidebooks I was writing, and for pleasure. I return to the city frequently, continually keeping track of renovation projects and new hotel openings that could be of interest to the travel publications I write for. Out of the 15 Dubrovnik hotels listed here, I’ve tried to include a good cross-section to appeal to various types of visitors - couples, young families, families with teenage kids and mature travelers – and a range of price brackets.

Simonseeks has given star ratings out of five for all accommodation recommendations. With hotels, these will tally with the hotel's official star rating where it exists. Where a hotel has no official star rating, and in the case of b & bs and hostels, the experts have made a judgment as to how many stars the accommodation deserves, in terms of comfort, level of facilities and so forth.
