Accommodation in Dubrovnik spans everything from hostels to hotels. The trend is clearly towards high-end hotels with prices now nearing those of any other European resort destination in July and August but there are excellent budget choices for apartments, B&Bs and guesthouses as many locals have renovated, enlarged or constructed apartments to accommodate visitors.

Now, let's consider each neighbourhood individually:

arrowOld Town
The experience of waking up in Dubrovnik's historic centre is unmatchable and sightseeing is so easy. Plus you'll be able to take advantage of Dubrovnik's nightlife without worrying about transport back. The old town is pedestrian only however. Travellers with limited mobility or with cars may want to look elsewhere. Choices for hotels are VERY limited but there is plenty of excellent private accommodation.

It's almost as convenient as staying in the Old Town. From your luxury hotel to the Old Town is a short and very scenic walk and most hotel rooms have a world-class view of the walled city. There is some private accommodation in this neighbourhood but mostly there are five-star hotels.

The vast majority of visitors stay on this leafy peninsula which contains most of Dubrovnik's hotels and a vast amount of private accommodation. There are frequent buses that make the short hop to the Old Town and you'll be closest to Dubrovnik's largest beach.

arrowBabin Kuk
Travelling with the family? Babin Kuk is your best choice. The hotels have plenty of amenities for kids, there are few roads and a nice big beach. Private accommodation is limited though.

There's some private accommodation and a couple of hotels on Gruz harbour plus it's only steps from ferries to the islands. This is a great choice if you're planning island cruises and other day trips.

A string of villages and small towns south of Dubrovnik makes a good alternative accommodation choice especially if you need to be close to the airport.
