Just looking for some answers on getting accomodation in Dubrovnik, within or very close to the Old town area. I understand this is the main part, and so should naturally be more expensive, however I wanted to know whether anyone would know about a private room for rent, mid august time, for two people.
I went Island Hopping (Cyclades) in Greece last year with my girlfriend, and finding (good) accomodation was really easy. I am seeing that Dubrovnik seems to be so expensive, even on the hostel sites. I wondered whether it is worth perhaps just turning up on the night, and walking through the main street, asking at friendly and more family looking restaurants for some private and relatively cheap accomodation for about four nights. I never paid more than 50 euros a night in Greece, so I don't really want to spend much more than this..
I know everyone says you should book in advance to avoid no rooms being available, but this was said when I island hopped in greece, and it was easier and cheaper (Mykonos we paid 35 euros a night when guide price was 200 euros, with the online price being 80 a night.)
Can anyone advise anywhere to stay or whether myself and my girlfriend should just wing it?
My problem I guess is that we arrive fairly late at the airport, around 21:00..
