Best Dubrovnik hotels 2023: Luxury and budget accommodation

Best Dubrovnik hotels 2023: Luxury and budget accommodation

From its shiny marble streets to rocky coves and famous filming locations, the world’s love affair with Dubrovnik shows no sign of slowing down.

Croatia’s biggest tourist attraction is filled with medieval and Renaissance walls, white stone houses and sprawling cafe terraces – and it becomes all the more attractive once the cruise crowds have gone for the day.

But whether you plan to walk the length of the city’s walls or hit the beaches of Lapad and Babin Kuk – which are situated just north of the Old Town, where life moves at an agreeably slower pace – you’ll want to find a stay that’s just as beautiful as this Croatian city.

You’re truly spoiled for choice when it comes to places to bed down in. You can opt for romantic villas that overlook the Adriatic as well as 500-year-old stone palaces that have stunning views over the clay-coloured rooftops of the Old Town. Or settle down in one of the many quiet boutique hotels found in and amongst the city’s narrow alleyways.

Game of Thrones fanatic or not, you’re sure to have an incredible time.

The Valamar Dubrovnik President enjoys its own private beach

Although it was built in the 1970s, this huge, sleek, white five star has been thoroughly modernised and has its own large stretch of pebbly beach. You also get superb sunsets and views of the Elaphiti Islands from the vast gardens, outdoor pool and most of the rooms. Just outside is the bus that takes you to the Old Town in 15-20 minutes, and you’re right by the footpath that curves around the peninsula past Cava and Copacabana beaches.
