There's and excellent and varied assortment of private rooms and apartments for rent in Dubrovnik's Old Town (Stari Grad) but only three hotels and one aparthotel within the walls. There is an one excellent hotel just outside.
The Pucic Palace
It offers five-star splendour in a beautifully restored 18th-century baroque palace on Gundulic square. The interior melds cutting edge contemporary design with the high ceilings and spaciousness that characterize old Dubrovnik.
This splendid new hotel is located in a 16th-century palace just off Stradun and each room is decorated with extraordinary style and originality. Some even have private balconies.
St Joseph's Hotel
This boutique aparthotel is new and gorgeously decorated in updated traditional style. The lavish comforts make it well worth four stars. Unlike other Old Town accommodation, the hotel can be accessed without steps.
Hotel Hilton Imperial.
The five-star Hilton is only steps outside Pile Gate, Dubrovnik's western entrance and provides all the luxury and service you would expect from the Hilton group. There's an indoor pool and wellness center. The hotel prides itself on being child-friendly.
Why stay in Dubrovnik's Old Town?
Staying in Dubrovnik's historic centre is the best way to absorb the magical flavour of this unique walled city. In the Old Town, you'll be within easy reach of restaurants and nightlife, there are a number of little grocery shops for self-catering and it's easy to take a bus to the beaches of Lapad. Plus, there's nothing like an early-morning stroll down Stradun to better absorb Dubrovnik's sights.
If you have a car, remember that there's no parking in the Old Town. You can lug your suitcases through town but usually you can arrange with your hotel or private accommodation to meet you at Pile or Ploce Gate. See more about Dubrovnik parking.
