While most people envision Dubrovnik’s Old Town, there are other options to consider when it comes to the best places to stay. There is no better neighborhood than the pedestrianized historic center with its many boutique hotels and guesthouses if you want to be in the heart of the attractions. Surrounded by medieval stone walls, you’ll be able to walk out your door and enjoy the narrow winding lanes, pretty squares, and centuries-old buildings. It’s filled with character and jam-packed with shops, restaurants, bars, and more. When you want to go elsewhere, it’s easy to catch public transport to other parts of the city just outside Pile Gate.
You’ll find some of the most luxurious resorts along the coast in Pile, Ploce, Lapad, and the Babin Kuk peninsula, while the Gruz port area has some excellent budget and mid-range options. Ploce is just outside the southern entrance to the Old Town providing access to Banje Beach, the most accessible stretch of sand in central Dubrovnik. Frano Supilo lies along the coast and features luxury villas, some of the most majestic and historic hotels, along with attractions like the cable car which will bring you to the top of Mount Srd.
