Private Accommodation in Dubrovnik


FOLLOW! Follow on Instagram Pinterest buttonTwitter button Facebook button

In Dubrovnik private apartments provide the best value for your accommodation budget. There's an enormous quantity of lodging from which to choose and prices, though rising in recent years, are still somewhat cheaper than staying in a hotel with the same comforts. Demand for accommodation rises in summer of course but so does the supply as many Dubrovnik residents double Click to see all hotels on a map up with relatives or friends in order to rent out their apartment. Most lodging is in Lapad, Gruz or the Old Town; each has their own benefits (see more on where to stay in Dubrovnik). At the height of the season, you'll get a better deal if you stay at least three nights though. For a one-night stay it may make more sense to stay in a hotel.

Note that in Dubrovnik Old Town elevators are forbidden because of its status as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Buildings achieve a maximum height of three floors and, in some parts of town, there are one or two flights of stairs to get to the entrance to the building. (See getting around Dubrovnik on foot) Those with walking difficulties should think about staying in Lapad or Babin Kuk where the buildings are lower and the hotels have elevators.

Why Private Accommodation?
Best Dubrovnik

Private accommodation in Dubrovnik offers a more personal experience. If you rent a room, you may be sharing the house with the owner which provides a great opportunity to mix with the local culture.  

Apartments can offer luxury and privacy at a better price than hotels. Apartment rentals are no longer for amateurs. The business has attracted hospitality professionals who use top-flight designers and offer the very latest in amenities.

Renting an apartment can be an economical choice for groups and families as the cost is usually much lower than renting a few hotel rooms. You can also save money on food since apartments will include a kitchen, cutlery, dishes,and a few pots and pans. Apartments also include satellite TV, helpful for relaxing after a long day of sightseeing. Free Wifi is standard.

BUT!! (There's always a but) in most cases you cannot pay with credit cards.

How to Find Private Accommodation

Private accommodation can be found when you arrive in Dubrovnik but it's better to reserve in advance, especially if you come in the summer when every place fills up.

You may be met at the bus station or harbour with offers of accommodation (although this is becoming less common). Be very careful about committing yourself until you get an exact idea of the location and the price. Some unscrupulous owners will take you to accommodation in the middle of nowhere leaving you with the option of either renting it or finding your own way back to town.  Because Dubrovnik is bordered by steep hills, it means nothing if someone tells you your lodging is 500m from the Old Town. So what? It could be a very steep climb, particularly in Gruz or Ploce. (See more on getting around Dubrovnik on foot.)
