Dubrovnik is one of the most preserved medieval cities worldwide. Dubrovnik’s old town and its sturdy stone walls offer a glimpse into its glorious past when it rivaled Venice as one of the most important trading ports. Even after many centuries, they remain strong and vivid as the day they were made. Thanks to its preserved medieval architecture, its unique location, and city walls, many Games of Thrones episodes were shot there, with the set of Kings Landing being based primarily on The Old Dubrovnik City. That only added to its pre-existing appeal and made it even more popular with tourists from all over the world.
When to Visit Dubrovnik?
The city’s rich history, preserved architecture, amazing scenery, excellent weather contribute to its massive popularity. Most tourists visit the city during the spring and summer months when the weather is warm and pleasant. As a result, the old town is overcrowded, and it is hard to go from one to another place and do things. That is why many locals recommend coming in fall or early spring when it is less crowded.

B&B in Dubrovnik
Dubrovnik has plenty to offer in terms of accommodation. The nearer you are to the old town, the more B&B hotels and hostels tend to cost. Most hotels provide breakfast without charging extra money. Some of the most popular bed and breakfast accommodations include:
B&B Fresh Sheets
Situated in the heart of the old town, this B&B has six rooms, each with a fantastic view of the most famous landmarks in the old town. Each of the rooms is air-conditioned, offers free Wi-Fi connection, and is tastefully decorated. The staff there is super friendly, and they all speak English. Thanks to its unique location, this is a perfect starting point to explore the city and its surrounding area.
The hotel is situated in a neighborhood known as Babin Kuk, a ten-minute drive from the old town. It has 308 rooms, outdoor and indoor pool, and few rocky beaches just below it. Great food, stylish rooms, and pretty much everything one might need. As the hotel is not in the historic part of town, it’s a bit cheaper than the other B&B places like the B&B Fresh Sheets hotel.
Situated right across the fortress walls, it is conveniently built into a historic building that was once a palace that dates from 1895. The Hilton Dubrovnik has 147 rooms, gym, spa, indoor pool, a restaurant, and plenty of more amenities. The views from the rooms are exceptional. Of course, its excellence comes with a hefty price tag.
This B&B hotel is built on a cliff and has 56 modern rooms with huge balconies, a restaurant, a spa center, and a fantastic rocky beach open only to its guests. Villa Dubrovnik is just fifteen minutes’ walk from the historic part of the town. But if you are not into a short stroll, the hotel offers a free boat shuttle or a free bus to take you to the old town’s gates.
