The Dalmatian coastline’s crown jewel, Dubrovnik, combines cliff-lined natural beauty and idyllic bathing coves with historic architecture. The Old Town is a Unesco World Heritage site, and is best known for its impressive palaces, forts and dramatic surrounding mountains – it’s no wonder the Game of Thrones producers chose it as a filming location. Here’s our pick of the best hotels for your visit.

Hotel Neptun

4.5/5 (666 Reviews)

As one of the tallest buildings in Dubrovnik, the Neptun offers great views over a city of winding alleyways. If a room with a view is at the top of your wishlist, this is definitely the place to stay. Gaze out at the azure sea from your sleek, modern room, then take a dip in the outdoor pool or watch the sunset from the Terrace Restaurant. Alternatively, if you’re more of an adrenaline junkie, you can book a series of experiences from scuba diving to quad biking.

Star spotters will enjoy the celebrity comings and goings at St Joseph’s.

At this hotel, located on the quaint streets south of the main Stradun Boulevard, expect luxurious, traditional rooms with complimentary breakfast – and green smoothies – served to your door everyday.

Dubrovnik is a famously busy city but it’s also possible to escape the cruise ship craziness. Those in search of a quiet stay will be enchanted by the gardens –decked with orange trees and lavender – at Villa Orsula. Rooms are also classical and elegant include a nightly turn-down service. As a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, this hotel makes the most of its art collection too, with pieces by Roberto Matta and Victor Vasarely on show.

Active travellers should choose One Suite Hotel. Just a few minutes outside of Dubrovik, this hotel specialises in adventure packages – from quad-bike safaris to kayak fishing. You’ll also find a gym on-site, plus a sundeck for yoga and a rooftop pool. Early birds should join One Suite’s local running guide around the hills of Srebreno, where the hotel is located, and finish off their morning with a fresh juice. Hopefully it’ll keep your holiday physique resembling Mo Farah rather than the Michelin Man.

If you want to cook homemade dinners or bring family members along, aparthotel Villa King, one kilometre east of Dubrovnik’s Old Town, could be just the ticket. You can choose from a suite with a jacuzzi and outdoor dining area, or one with a terrace and views of the Adriatic Sea – but regardless, all are beautifully decorated with mid century sideboards and spider plants to give that homely touch.

    If you’re looking for a central location, Scalini Palace puts you right at the heart of the action, amongst the winding alleyways of the historic Old Town. Housed in a 16th century manor house, the decor mixes modern furnishings with historic brick and stone from the original architecture. An Italian-style breakfast will also be delivered to your room each morning. Our tip? Ask the concierge to organise a private speedboat tour for an alternative sightseeing experience in Dubrovnik.

    For five star luxury, look no further than Hotel Excelsior, just a five minute walk away from the walled city of Dubovnik. Occupying a former royal villa, this lavish hotel will treat you to the best sea views that both Queen Elizabeth II and Elizabeth Taylor have enjoyed in decades past. We also recommend booking a table at the Prora restaurant and enjoying a Croatian wine with your meal. On overcast days, you can indulge in a massage at the huge on-site spa before diving into the freshwater pool.
