Holiday in Dubrovnik

Planning a holiday to Dubrovnik next year and looking for advice on hotels and areas people can recommend. We're a fit active couple so a location that is a great base to explore the area would be great.

We stayed in the Ploce area which is built on the hill. So there is a lot of steps and not many roads. It's mainly appartments with balconies with sea views. We had an appartment right up the hill, so we had a big climb up the steps but it was worth it for the amazing view over the old town and the sea. Have a look on Airbnb.

We stayed in the Valamar Argosy on Babin Kuk, the location was ideal if you like walking. The Setnica walking trail runs either side of the hotel and goes to Gruz in one direction and Lapad in the other, it was a beautiful walk and you could make it a circular walk by cutting through the streets between Lapad and Gruz. You could use the facilities of the other Valamar hotels and there was quite a few restaurants nearby. Lapad was great with a lot of bars and restaurants and a fab stony beach. There was a bus to Dubrovnik old town every ten minutes until one am and we walked it back one day (about 5km). There were water sports available at both Lapad and at the valamar president beach.

When? For how long? Dubrovnik only or as part of a larger holiday?

What your interests? Your plans?

TripAdvisor has a whole section of hotel and accommodation listings and ratings. Have you browsed it?

We stayed in the old city and enjoyed it very much.

I would try airbnb! There are great apartments all over the city. We stayed at a great apartment outside of the Old Town which made it easy to explore the surrounding area. I posted about it on my blog if you're interested:

Do take care with summer weather, and look at past year(s) for temperatures.
