Best Area to Stay in Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik Old Town

BEST FOR: Being close to the action

The Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and where the majority of things to do in Dubrovnik are. This is the most expensive area of the city and obviously the oldest but there are still affordable options within the Old Town walls.


BEST FOR: Budget and location mix

Pile is just outside of the Old Town walls so the area still offers plenty of amenities and is close to all that Dubrovnik has to offer but it doesn’t have the price tag that comes with accommodation that is inside the city walls.


BEST FOR: Luxury

On the opposite side of the Old Town from Pile, on the eastern side lies Ploce, an area known for its jaw-dropping views over the water and luxury hotels.


BEST FOR: Beaches

Some of Dubrovnik’s best beaches are here and this lively spot that the locals love is also not far from the Old Town which can be accessed by a quick jump on a public bus. If you stay at a hotel here you’ll probably have unreal views of the water.

The Old Town is a bit of a walk away but the public bus stops directly in front of the hotel and drops you off just outside of the Old Town gates so minimal walking is required if you don’t want to.

Two restaurants are on-site serving local Dalmatian cuisine and the property is pet-friendly.

Berkeley Hotel & Day Spa

Berkeley Hotel & Day Spa is close to the Gruz Harbour where guests can get a great view overlooking the water from some of the sea view rooms.

The hotel boasts a pool and includes a tasty breakfast. A spa is on-site and it is possible to organize luxury boat charters, fishing excursions and much more.

This boutique-style hotel is family run with staff receiving top reviews for how helpful they are and modern yet comfortable rooms are provided.

Hostel Angelina

Hostel Angelina is one of the most highly rated hostels in all of Dubrovnik and has a prime spot located in the Old Town. The hostel is in a 400-year-old building and has a terrace overlooking the roofs of the Old Town.
